M2 Alloy

The M2 Pro frame was designed to aesthetically replicate our flagship model, the Velox Carbon. With all the same features, such as tapered head-tube, BB86 bottom bracket, massive tapered down-tube, and the Integrated Tension dropout system; the M2 is the pinnacle of power & efficiency in an aluminum frame.

 


ZK6T9887BB86 – There are 3 popular bottom bracket standards for BMX – euro, BB30, and BB86. A euro is a threaded BB, the shell is 68mm wide and it uses 24mm (92mm total) of outboard bearings and a 24mm crank spindle. A BB30 is similar, 68mm shell but promotes a larger crank spindle (30mm) therefore a larger spindle to flex the same narrow bottom bracket junction. The M2 Alloy uses a BB86 which is a 86mm BB shell and press-fit bearings that equal 4mm added to the 86mm shell (92mm total) while using a 24mm spindle. The advantage to our BB is the wider down-tube and chain-stay described above. Rigidity is key for first straight pull and accelerating out of turns, while a flimsy frame will just get you cut off out of the gate.

1ZK6T98880/15mm dropout – The dropout on the M2 Alloy is all about efficiency. With an integrated chain tensioner through the front of the dropout, the need to over-tighten your wheel has been eliminated. Each dropout uses two flex-free 4mm adapters to insure your wheel isn’t gonna move regardless of how many horses you’re putting down first pedal.


ZK6T9890Tapered head tube – The standard for high-end race frames is a tapered head tube. A tapered head tube uses a 1-1/8” top bearing and a 1.5” bottom bearing and allows us to use a fork both lighter and stronger than ever before.


Tubeset- The M2 features a fully double-butted 7005-aluminum tube set. The massive down-tube tapers 52mm to 72mm top to bottom, which eliminates flex and allows your power to be efficiently converted to speed as you accelerate from the gate, and corners.
