The face of Baltimore’s dirt biking scene, actor and professional dirt bike rider Chino Braxton has turned his childhood hobby into his passion, overcame tragedy, and is now bringing his passion into the mainstream. Chino started riding pedal bikes throughout Baltimore when he was 2 as a way of bonding with his friends and family. After switching to dirt bikes at the age of 6, Chino began learning new stunts, asking friends to film his attempts, and uploading the footage on YouTube for the world to watch. His videos – which were performed using both pedal and dirt bikes – quickly grew into viral sensations, generating over 11 million views and attracting new fans across the world. His eye-popping tricks caught the eye of Meek Mill, a biking enthusiast, who invited Chino to ride with his friends in Philadelphia before eventually taking Chino under his wing. With Meek as his mentor, Chino’s popularity exploded, with his biking exploits featured in several of the star’s music videos – including “Ima Boss,” “Litty,” “Glow Up” and “The Difference.”
We worked with Chino Braxton to launch a limited-edition drops apparel collection that aligned with Chino's aesthetic.
In 2018, Chino appeared alongside Meek Mill in the Will Smith and Jada Pinkett Smith-executive produced film, Charm City Kings. He's also worked with Jay-Z at Roc Nation.
As he continues to showcase his unique stunts, Chino is hoping to use his platform as a professional dirt biker to raise awareness for the sport, encourage young children to pursue it as a career, and give back to the community that he came from.
In 2018, he auctioned off his own custom dirt bike to raise funds for B360 Baltimore, an organization that utilizes STEM education programming to help fight the cycle of poverty.
