Josh had an awesome weekend in Louisville at the Derby City Nationals. 15x is a super stacked class and to come away with a 4th in the main is amazing.
Roughly 18 months ago, we decided it was time for a change; an evolution, really. For years, race frames have featured an 1-1/8" head tube, and a euro bottom bracket shell - two things that represent old technology; old thinking. Let us introduce you to the Carbon – the most innovative race frame ever created.
Light, stiff, and durable is how we describe the perfect blend of M30-S and T-700 carbon that creates our Haro C730 Carbon frame. The carbon alone is enough to catch ones attention, but the features of the Carbon are equally as impressive as the material it's constructed from. Traditional frames use a Euro BB or BB30, which are 68mm wide while the Carbon utilizes a press-fit BB86 design, which is the heart of our PTC concept. The PTC (Power Transfer Center) bottom bracket is made up of an 86.5mm wide shell, allowing the down-tube, chain-stay, and seat-tube to taper to the outer width of the shell and create undoubtedly the stiffest, most responsive bottom bracket concept to hit the BMX market. Power gets transferred to the rear wheel faster and more efficiently than ever before. Simply put, this frame makes you faster.
The head-tube of the Carbon is a taper 1-1/8" – 1.5" design which not only stiffens up the front end of the bike, but also opens the door for a tapered steer carbon fork we’ve developed under Haro's race component line, CLiQ. The rear dropout of the Carbon is a slotted 20mm design and the frame comes with 3 different axle compatibilities allowing you to choose between running a 10mm, 15mm or 20mm axle.
Pro (20.5" TT / 14.75" RC) – Pro XL (21" TT / 15.2" RC) – Pro XXL (21.75" TT / 15.2" RC) – Long (21.75" / 17.2" RC)
Colors: Black/cyan – White/cyan
Weight: Pro XL frame is 2.7 pounds
We should be taking delivery sometime in April.
They are on the pricey side.
Both of these edit have so much style! Love those tire slides...
Not going to lecture you about wearing a helmet. It is your choice. Check out this article from All It Is. And remember like Mike Aitken said, "It only takes once."
Haro BLACKOUT's have just arrived at Mill Town. If you are looking for a high end race ready rig. Make sure you come in and pick up the BLACKOUT. The frame has been re-designed for 2014. It centers around Haro's PTC (Power Transfer Center) and a BB86 makes this one stiff & fast frame. Add in CLIQ's Weaponz cranks and Finisher forks with 20mm dropouts. This an amazing bike!
