Russia might not always be the first place you think of when it comes to thriving skate scenes but in recent years this often mysterious country has found itself in the spotlight more and more. From Russian scene videos appearing on Free Skate Mag, Gosha Konyshev consistently pushing the boundaries of winter skating and even tour videos from the likes of Adidas and Atlantic Drift; it's clear that Russia's got more to offer than funky hats and potent vodka, and at the forefront of this new skateboard-oriented Russian revolution is skate/streetwear brand, RASSVET.

HISTORY OF RASSVET

Rassvet (AKA Paccbet) was founded in 2016 by Russian pro skater, Tolia Titaev. With support from fashion brand, Comme Des Garcons, RASSVET quickly established themselves in the streetwear scene with their powerful designs and high-quality product and have since been making serious moves in the skate scene. Despite their Russian origins, Rassvet has strongly opposed Russia's war in Ukraine since the outset with the brand since relocating their base to Paris.

The name Rassvet, or Paccbet in Cyrillic, translates to 'dawn' or 'sunrise' (hence the iconic sunrise logo) and as such the brand draws inspiration from the new generation of youth culture, emphasising a feeling of hope for the post-Soviet era through their bold artistic vision and hoping to share this with the rest of the world.

RASSVET SKATE TEAM

Despite their Russian origins, Rassvet boasts a continent-spanning team of cosmopolitan legends with skaters from Russia, France, the USA and more. The Rassvet skate team features Lilian Fev, Val Bauer, Cambryan Sedlick, Joseph Biais, Alix Malnati, Yaroslav Kondratiev, Igor Smirnov and now Austyn Gillette and Remy Taveira after the pair were announced as the brand's newest pros at the Paris premiere of their latest video, 'BLUE'.

RASSVET SKATE VIDEOS

Given their absolutely stacked team, it should come as no surprise that Rassvet's skate videos are an absolute joy to experience. Known for their striking visuals and impeccable soundtracks, Rassvet skate videos match the high-quality finish of their product and are sure to appeal to any fans of Hockey, Polar and other similarly stylish brands.

Likewise, Rassvet's videos also reflect the team's cosmopolitan nature, with videos filmed across the globe, including at home in Russia as well as in Paris, Los Angeles and more with some equally international filmers behind the lens, including the likes of Romain Batard, Trevor Dare, James Cruickshank, Sirus F Gahan and Thomas Vigoureux.

Most recently, Rassvet celebrated the release of their latest full-length video, 'BLUE', welcoming their newest additions to the squad with a bonkers Austyn Gillette and Remy Taveira shared part alongside equally heavy parts from Joseph Biais, Cambryan Sedlick, Lilian Fev and the rest of the team. From the unique visuals to the captivating soundtrack, if you weren't already down with Rassvet then 'BLUE' is sure to seal the deal - and the addition of Remy and Austyn is just the cherry on top.

RASSVET CLOTHING AND DECKS

As you'd expect from a brand with their roots in high fashion, Rassvet pride themselves on producing some of the finest quality clothing you can find in skateboarding, including a range of T-shirts, hoods, beanies, pants and more. We're hyped to be stocking a selection of Rassvet clothing, including their iconic 'Mini Logo' T-shirt and 'Logo Tag' Beanies.

Alongside the clothing, Rassvet also offer a range of premium skateboard decks which are made in Mexico by PS Stix, one of the finest woodshops in the game, for that top-tier pop and durability. Their current pros include founder, Tolia Titaev, as well as Cambryan Sedlick, Joseph Biais and their two newest recruits, Austyn Gillette and Remy Taveira.
