Started in 2010, HEX manufactures various watch bands for use with handheld MP3 devices (including one for use with iPod Nanos) backpacks and assorted tech accessories "to connect technology with fashion by pairing new gadgets with unique and attractive solutions." Users of HEX goods include Justin Bieber, Kid Cudi, The Roots, Snoop Dogg, and now, BMX loose cannon Morgan Wade.
According to Wade, "I'm really happy to be a part of the HEX family. When I wear my Nano Watchband people freak out when they find out it's an iPod; they always think it's a high fashion watch. I can't wait to help spread the word because I know they have tons more cool stuff up their sleeves!"
Although Morgan is currently off the bike and recuperating from a spleen injury suffered at the Nescau MegaRamp Open in Sao Paulo, Brazil earlier this month, he is now back in the U.S. and plans on attending X Games later this month. According to earlier reports, Morgan is supposed to off the bike for three months, but as of yesterday, Morgan said "I'm feeling pretty normal actually -- just waiting to ride now."
Morgan's additional sponsors include Nooka, Empire BMX, MegaRamp, Elite Bike Shop, Maxxis Tires, ODI Grips and East Texas Krav Mega.
