We wanted something simple and effective. None of us are going to be sprocket grinding concrete hubbas at every available opportunity, so we don’t need anything thick or tough as a bag of old nails (or as heavy). We have the four most popular sizes and four colours (polished, black, Casselberry Red, blue) with CNC logos and a classic profile. Teeth
* Deluxe BMX frame, 20.5˝ toptube, 74° headtube, 13.75˝ rear end, 11.5˝ high BB * 2 piece 8˝ rise Deluxe bars * Affix stem, front loading * Deluxe BMX Shovelhand grips * Deluxe BMX Kevlar Superlight seat & post combo * 3 piece tubular 4130 chromoly crank, 175mm arms * 25T sprocket * 9T cassette hub * 36 spoke double-wall aluminium rims, black * Bohle Dirt / Street tyres * Chain adjuster * Weight: 26lb * Colours: Gloss Black or Trident Green frame with black and white parts
Our new seatclamps are superlight, like our seats. They are CNC machined from 6061-T6 aluminium and designed by Sylvain Taro to complement our sprockets.
* Deluxe BMX frame, full 4130
chromoly, 20.7˝ toptube, 74° headtube, 13.75˝ rear end, 11.5˝ high BB, 4mm dropouts * Butted 4130 chromoly fork * Deluxe BMX multiple-butted 8˝ rise 4130 chromoly handlebars * Affix stem, front loading * Deluxe BMX Shovelhand grips * Deluxe BMX Kevlar Superlight seat & post combo * 3 piece tubular chromoly crank, 175mm arms * Affix bush-bearing mid BB * 25T sprocket * 9T sealed bearing Lolita cassette hub * Sealed bearing alloy front hub * Double wall 36 spoke aluminium rims * KHE MAC2 Dirt & MAC1.5 lightweight tyres * Chain adjuster * Weight: 25.2lb * Colours: Casselberry Red or Olive frame with black and white parts

Manufactured using high quality recycled rubber and with a grip pattern that wears in really well. At 150mm long and 30mm diameter they are not the smallest grips on the planet – these are man-size BMX grips and they feel great.
superlight seat & post combo Here, we wanted something very simple, tough, light and also comfortable – we initially looked at Pivotals, but everyone’s making a Pivotal so there’s already plenty to choose from. So we did something a little different and worked with KHE to produce this new Deluxe seat and post combination: the aluminium post permanently secures into the seat base – it’ll never move – and the Kevlar upper is both light and durable, so the final weight is minimal. Plus, with its comfortable saddle shape and 150mm post (you can run a fist’s worth of post with ease) it’s also totally practical. We have them in black Kevlar with embroidered logos in a choice of black, white, red or blue stitching. Built light to go fast. Post

We have two sizes of bars. Both have a really comfortable 12º sweep and a good size box so they look bang-on. Made from 9-butted 4130 chromoly tubing, the difference here is that we reduced the diameter of the cross-brace, like BMX race handlebars. It looks fast, and it makes them a little lighter too. We have three colours: gloss black, Cleancoat and show chrome plate. Cleancoat is great, because the mottled colour of the full heat-treated chromoly shows through really well, and it took us a while to find good enough chrome platers but we did it and the chrome is dialled.
Built for going fast. Simplicity is what we’re aiming for here: no wishbones, no crimps, no harsh bends on the seatstays or chainstays, no front triangle gussets and no rear stay bridges that have been laser-cut to resemble intricate metalwork pieces. And all made with Japanese seamless 4130 chromoly. 4130 chromoly is the stuff we’ve been making BMX frames from for decades, refined and produced into a high quality tubeset and expertly welded by our preferred frame builder. Stable, fast, light, durable, classic – it’s all we wanted in a BMX frame. Model
