This is the most advanced frame of it’s kind on the market today. We believe in purpose-built bikes, and the Subverter26 is designed for pure street. Quick and responsive, stable yet comfortable, this is a frameset for the advanced freestyle rider. We’ve incorporated many functional design details into this frame. First, we selected a special blend of OX Platinum steel tubing, which offers the benefits of a lighter frame without sacrificing any of the strength (it actually gets stronger at the weld points, reducing unecessary weight and eliminating the need for gussets!). It has “just enough” of a negative bottom bracket for grind clearance, and its “dialed in” fork length & short head tube add to its strength while saving even more weight. And its short wheelbase & tight rear triangle (with the shortest chainstays of any frame in it’s category) it offers superb handling, especially during transitions.
