2013 supreme su18 Creating a higher end 18” bike last year was a risk not many people would take, and the fact it is back for 2013 mean it was for good reason. The United Supreme SU18 2013 is tailored to the smaller rider that is serious about progressing on a bike and having something that will hold up to their steep learning curve. We researched and developed how we could continue to have this model ride like a scaled down 20”, responsive pro level frame geometry that we tweaked from last year, larger 7.25” rise bars, along with our own shorter grips, lever and stem keep this sized perfectly. What you won’t find on many other 18” bikes is a Japanese cromo main frame, 100% cromo forks and a fully sealed rear cassette. If you are young, but serious about BMX then this is the bike for you.

2013 recruit rn2 What with all the upgrades and extra features on this years RN1, we wanted to make sure the United Recruit RN2 2013 remained accessible to a beginner rider, who may be looking for a something a little different. The United top load stem combined with the slightly longer top tube length make this an option for someone who may grow out of the RN1 too quickly. Adding high end features such as colour matched spokes and graphics, tapered forks, and slimline tubular cromo heat treated cranks along with our attention to detail in every area, give this bike both style and durability.

2013 recruit rn18 United Recruit RN18 2013. After the unexpected success of our high end SU18 last year, we decided to introduce a smaller bike to the Recruit collection. Even though this is our more affordable 18” option, we have still used a premium parts package and high quality detailing. We paid attention to a younger riders needs and created our own shorter 120mm United Jr grip and shorter lever, developed a shorter 18” specific stem, found a smaller seat option and used responsive pro level geometry to stop this feeling like just another ‘kids’ bike. Included as standard are the new features found on other 2013 Recruit models, integrated head tube, sealed mid bb, & fully sealed 3 pawl alloy cassette hub. Smaller riders rejoice.
