Lawrence Ingraham is one of the busiest men in rollerblading. After coming back to the sport a few years ago and launching his Back to Blading YouTube channel and podcast series, in February of 2018 he announced the revival of the much beloved 50/50 frame company. Almost a year later Lawrence has dropped his next project on the industry during last nights episode of Gear Talk.

Regarding the Compass team Lawrence had this to say:
“The Compass team was really important to me so we started with a team of five very different skaters. My main motivation around Compass is to promote skating. I want people to go out and skate […] I wanted to look for people who epitomize the different disciplines that I really looked up to.”
The Compass team is Guy Crawford, Jason Marshall, Drew Patton, Brock Jacobs, and Dylan Kingsolver.
