As Shadow embarks on it's 11th year in BMX, I have been asking myself, "what does it mean to give back?" No matter what I end up with, I always start with the local scene. The towns that riders make their beginnings in are just as important as the parts they choose to put on their bikes. If a scene is given the opportunity to thrive, it can bring new crews, new styles, and new points of view to the thing we love the most, BMX. Last year we launched the KIL Keep It Local tour with this idea in mind. We set out to create a tour that would take the Shadow crew around the world to experience and inspire the vast amount of scenes in BMX. It was absolutely amazing being able to visit all the different and unique places just to watch the locals shred side by side with their idols as equals. That is the true definition of BMX. It's about getting back to the roots and inspiring the next generation to take it to the next level. So "what does it mean to give back?" It means continuing the radness that is BMX. To support the riders and their scenes so that this thing we love can keep growing and become even better than it already is. BMX has given Shadow 11 years of love and guidance and Shadow will continue to show BMX the same by being out there, inspiring at the ground level. Hope to see you all this summer at your local spot! –Ronnie B

Shadow doesn't believe in fashion over function or vice versa. We strive to make the highest quality and most advanced parts BMX can offer while also staying true to the idea that style is just as important. With our color kits you can guarantee you'll not only have the strongest bike, but also the coolest looking.


Ben Hucke approached us about creating a Vultus Bar with 12º of back sweep and 1º of up sweep along with a smaller but thicker tear drop crossbar. We jumped at the opportunity to provide yet another option for riders in our proven handlebar line. After strenuous machine and rider testing, the Shadow Local Bar was born.

DEADBOLT BARENDS

In an effort to create the best handlebar possible, we had the Shadow team attempt to beat these handlebars to a pulp, put them through their rigorous daily riding, and test them on every level imaginable. When the smoke cleared, we were left with Shadow’s staple handlebar, The Vultus Bar.

The Captive Fork is Shadow’s enclosed dropout fork that features our revolutionary adjustable offset design. This special dropout allows you the option of switching your fork offset depending on your riding style. Using the provided spacer you can set your fork at a 26mm offset to steepen up your steering or to help with nose wheelies. You can also switch the spacer to 32mm to slow the steering and give you better handling though the local trails.

32mm traditional fork offset for a more stable ride when pedaling fast or coasting through the trails.

Trey had something different in mind for his signature Penumbra seat. He preferred the function and style of the Shadow Solus Seat which had yet to be created as part of the Penumbra line. We were stoked on the result.

If you have ever seen Drew ride, you know that, other than pure unbelievable skill, he relies on having the most dialed brakes possible to do what he does. Working closely with Drew, we were able to create a stiff and reliable brake that passed all of the brutal testing Drew could dish out.

Pushing the limits is an understatement when it comes to the Interlock Supreme chain. Using a manufacturing process that has never been applied to a BMX chain before, with a completely unique plate and pin design to eliminate all weak points, we were able to create the strongest BMX chain ever. Forget about broken links and go Supreme! 2000

What more can we say that hasn't already been said. The Interlock V2 is the original and best half-link chain period! Imitated by many but never perfected, our chain has always come out on top. Ridden by most of the top pros in BMX, this chain is available in 1/8" and 3/32" sizes, comes with 98 links to fit any gear ratio, and includes two master pins for easy repair.

The Interlock v2 chain is compatible with 8 tooth cogs or higher and weighs 11.3 oz for the standard 72 link set up. Go with the best, go with the original. Accept no substitutes.

Seth Kimbrough has always preferred the unique feel of aluminum crank arms over the standard chromoly. With his help, we created an oversized 6061 aluminum crank that stands up to Seth's punishment day in and day out. With a brutally strong 22mm, 16 spline hollow spindle, we are proud to offer the new standard in Aluminum cranks.

When we approached Scott Ditchburn about creating a signature peg, he had a very specific combination in mind. A plastic sleeve combo peg that looks like a traditional metal peg. With a 104mm length and 39mm diameter, these fit the bill. The butted, heat treated, chromoly insert and 4mm thick plastic all but guarantees these will be stronger and last longer than most combo pegs while still weighing only 5.3 ounces. The S.O.D. peg also features our proprietary "sleeve lock" design. This feature prevents the plastic sleeve from rotating on rougher grinds and allows metal to metal contact at the drop out for four peg use without the fear of your wheel moving. Step up your grind game with the ultimate plastic peg system.

Bolt Type Raptor is what B.T.R. stands for but we’re beginning to think that we should have named it the brutally tough Raptor hub. Oversized bearings compliment the enormous 17mm female axle, 14mm male bolts, and the 4 pawl driver with a polymer bushing. This thing is overbuilt for any abuse you can throw at it.

This hub is our tried and true testament to longevity. Inside we have a 14mm nickel plated chromoly axle, five sealed bearings, and a 4 pawl 1-piece chromoly driver with individual leaf springs for dependable engagement. Plain and simple, this hub was built to last.

Equally matching the durability of our Raptor cassette hub is our Raptor Female Front Hub. The durable chromoly inner axle and buttery smooth sealed bearings will keep you steady rolling. Tested by the entire Shadow Pro team, these passed with flying colors.

We've taken all of our aftermarket rear wheel components and laced them together to create this extremely tough complete wheel. Featuring a Shadow Stun rim three cross laced with Shadow Straight spokes to a 14mm Shadow Raptor cassette hub, you can pull this wheel out of the package, bolt it on, and be ready to rip.

If you're looking for a pro level front wheel right out of the box, then the Stun Complete Front wheel is right up your alley. With a Shadow Stun rim, Raptor front hub, and three cross laced Shadow Straight spokes, you'll feel like this wheel was built just for you!

ORBIS RIM When developing the new Shadow Corvus rim we wanted to try something different. The goal was a wider profile rim that would help distribute impact forces while also retaining a sleek, lower profile look that would allow us to add material to crucial areas without bringing on added weight. We nailed it.

STUN RIM


The Strada tire is Shadow’s high pressure, fast rolling street tire that was developed with the help of Simone Barraco. Working together, we tweaked multiple designs until we created exactly what he was looking for, a smooth, minimalistic tire that grips extremely well on hard surfaces.
