ONE Blade Awards [2016]

ONE Blade Awards [2016]

Over the past few weeks bladers around the world have nominated and then voted on their favorite bladers, edits, brands, products, writers, photographers, videographers, events, locations and more.

The names you see below are the result of your efforts.

2016 was another year of intense social media activity for blading. Instagram videos went up to 60 seconds, FB kept rejiggering their algorithms, and Live videos brought us all closer together than ever. We said it last year and we will say it again: How this has impacted the way participating bladers view the sport cannot be overstated.

And these results once again prove it.

The people, brands, events and products named below represent the best that blading offers. They are on this list because their dedication, passion, perseverance and/or innovation has had an impact that spreads beyond popularity and transcends to international respect.

Many, many talents were nominated to this year’s ONE Awards. Hundreds. But among all the choices available, these are the results CHOSEN BY BLADERS that highlight the top echelon of rollerblading.

Without further delay, please join us in congratulating the 2016 ONE Awards recipients.
