Dear CypherStyles Team,

As you see I'm a big user of your Headspin Beanies and they helped me to improve my performance A LOT! Your product's are great and I love them. The spin mesh is perfect on any kind of floor. It gives me the ability to spin very long and fast. I don't need to wear a helmet for headspin's anymore! Thanks for your great gear which has improved my moves and my dance. Thanks for everything!

Best Regards,

Cypherstyles is the BEST site out there period. I've been performing on stage since I was 15 with Grammy nominated Hip-Hop artists and I will only wear cypherstyles gear. I ordered a headspin cap forever ago and it has lasted through countless practice sessions, to countless battles.

One thing that always amazed me about Cypherstyles is how at home they make you feel; forreal. The first time I ordered my gear, the owner GRIZ took the time to get to know me and not many site owners out there are willing to do that, they have this "let's hurry this up so I can get your money in my pocket" feel, but Cypherstyles doesn't.

It's a site for BBoys by BBoys and thats how I like it. Spread the love, if you want good quality products, and good quality service CypherStyles is the place to go. I'll rock CypherStyles in every battle!

Much love,

Cypherstyles rocks and their customer service is second to none. They are really friendly and knowledgeable and go out of their way to support their younger followers. Much respect from the dad of one very young B Boy!

I'm excited to get the Mad Act BBoy Battles back in circulation and I really appreciate you taking up the mantle and keeping not just King of Cali but all the rare and out of print DVDs available to the street dance community. The culture needs someone like you keeping it alive. Thanks CypherStyles!

It's hard to be sure what kind of people you are dealing with when you buy online, but CypherStyles is one of the few places that I honestly don't have to worry about when I'm working with them. I've been lucky enough to meet the people behind CypherStyles when they were out supporting at b-boy events, and I have no problem recommending them to anyone looking for hard to find DVDs and gear. Every interaction I've had with them has been positive.

CypherStyles is, in short, the best outlet for hip-hop and street dance resources, period. The dance community, hip-hop community, and the planet at large would be a better place with more people like Barry and his team.

From an industry perspective, it's hard to beat CypherStyles's selection and service. Gone are the days of warily-made purchases with creeping anxieties about identity theft, defective products, and missing orders. The purchasing process is short, simple, and satisfying -- exactly the way it should have always been.

But what really separates CypherStyles from any other street dance retailer is a genuine affection for the culture and an unbelievable approachability. While other retailers tend to either get caught up in the money or in their own egos in the dance scene, CypherStyles somehow manages to maintain a high standard of professionalism while also staying true to its roots. I've often felt incredulous at CypherStyles's sheer humility and heart. Whether you're a fan who wants some neat videos, a dancer who's trying to save your knee, a performer trying to get your name out, or an entrepreneur trying to find an outlet to peddle your new headspin goods, chances are that someone at CypherStyles can -- and actually wants -- to help you. It's kind of ridiculous, really.

Ask pretty much any b-boy, b-girl, or member of the b-boy community -- chances are, at some point, they have either said or heard someone say something along the lines of "Barry from CypherStyles is the nicest f--king guy in the world." There are a lot of myths and rumors in hip-hop, but this one rings true. I'd probably trust Barry and the CypherStyles team with my firstborn, no s--t.

Whats up all? Just got my dvds from you guys, and as usual, I can never find a reason to complain! CypherStyles is the most reputable hip-hop source I know of, and you all are setting precedents for other companies to hope to achieve in the areas of customer service, quality, and overall business. I am relieved to be able to deal with a company that is truly in tune with the culture and gives respect back to its customers. Big Ups CypherStyles, catch you in the new year!

konee rokCypherStyles is a great business only because of the intelligent, fair minded people that implemented and run their company. The owner and founder, Barry Rabkin aka BBoy Griz, has been supportive of Konee Rok for as long as I've known him. Quality character has taken them far in business and I expect them to carry on in a positive manner in any venture they pursue.

junious house brickhouseI think artistic growth is directly connected to resourcing; having a place or person that documents yesterday, while capturing what is currently happening in our cultures. Cypherstyles is that source, unbiasedly providing a snapshot of many communities for your convenience. Here you can find Dance, Graffiti, DJ Videos and Music from all levels and periods of urban culture. This is more than just a site for videos, it is our time capsule

hypnoCypherStyles is definitely a very important part of our dance culture. They give our underground product a place to launch and reach a world wide market. They support, respect and understand the dance culture, and there really aren't a lot of companies that do that. Thank you guys, and can't wait to see what's next for CypherStyles in the future! Peace and one.

Tiny Love - Vibe Elements, Dynasty Rockers, Touch of Rock


tiny loveCypherStyles supports battles and jams and helps the street dance scene grow. Most dancers don't know how to sell their own products, but CypherStyles helps me and many others deal with the business side of dancing. CypherStyles is out there helping to promote us on a grassroots level so I can spend my time focusing on dancing instead of business. It's great seeing CypherStyles grow by helping street dance culture grow.

The Stinger Family


bboy traeI wanted to thank you so much for the great services you give. I have ordered the headspin beanie and the helmet from you for my 7 year old son, Trae. We have already recieved them. I asked you a question about the helmet and you responded very quickly. On top of that, your products are the best!!! I wanted to let you know how much the Stinger Family appreciates what you have done and how it has impacted our family so positively. Thanks again CypherStyles!!!!!!!

Much Love and Respect

BBoy Domes, Massive Monkees Crew, Seattle


domes massive monkeesI just wanted to say how dope I think CypherStyles is. It's dope to be able to go to one place and get everything you need as far as videos and anything hiphop related goes. It saves a lot on overseas shipping or waiting to travel to another country to pick up merchandise you can't get in the states. Our boy ordered some dvds from u guys and got them mad quick. He inspired me, so i just ordered the juste debout dvd from you. Just wanted to share with you guys. Cypherstyles is the ish!!

Peace and much respect!

powerful pexsterGoing from a 10 year old in the Bronx to all around the world, even to the White House! I've taken the culture far and the culture has taken me far, and it's incredible to see CypherStyles grab hold of the true culture 110% and bring shine to a lot of kids with unbelievable talent and skills. They got the gear and clothes and DVDs to educate, and I've got nothing but love for CypherStyles because they got nothing but love for the culture. Big Ups!

CypherStyles really impresses me. They have great customer service and this is a testament to the owner Barry Rabkin! They are always supporting the street dance community and proactively looking for events/competitions to sponsor. I look forward to buying more DVD's from them and building with them in the near future. Keep it up! Peace!

The popping dance style is often more known for hard hits, but can also be fluid as well. If you're looking for a solid popping dance video we have the best and most extensive selection anywhere!

Popping locking DVDs can be hard to come by, but we know how much a good popping video can inspire a popping dancer, so we always strive to have the best selection out there!

Popping and locking got started back in the 1970s, around the same time the first bboys started doing their thing.

Often misrepresented as "breakin," popping locking dance is very much its own style, and you can tell the difference between a popping dancer and other street dancers pretty quickly.

Rave dancing has taken the world by storm. As a fairly new phenomenon, many places barely carry any products that are even remotely related to techno dance and electro dancing.

Cypherstyles is different because we carry a huge line of electro techno dance products, even carrying hard to find products relating to hardstyle shuffle and other harder to find forms of techno dancing.
