Regarding the acquisition, Kevin said, “I have learned so much over the last 12 years – building the Sandbox brand to what it is today. It’s been an amazing adventure. Throughout this time our foundation has always been authenticity and rider driven. For this reason, we feel Max and the team at Endeavor Design are the perfect fit to carry on the Sandbox brand and take it to the next level.”

Max Jenke, founder and creative director of Endeavor Design said, “Adding Sandbox compliments Airhole and Endeavor perfectly – as a brand aesthetic and also how our organization is set up. The Sandbox team has done an amazing job of getting the brand to where it is today – we’re thrilled to build on their success. Our crew has always worn Sandbox helmets so it’s fantastic that we have brought it under our wing.”
