Since the Supercross 20mm through axle prototypes were on display at the ABA Grands there has been a real buzz.
The cromo fork/hub combo is stiffer and lighter, and it has more colour options on offer than any other fork/hub setup of it’s kind. It has a 28mm offset like all SX Forks.
After getting the go ahead from the team, these have been put into production in 20″ and 24″ versions. It starts off with the SLT-i Integrated Race Fork and has special 20mm Heat Treated Cro-mo Dropouts. The Forks will ship with a custom Supercross Quick Twitch 20mm hub with custom frictionless bearings.
The final pricing is still yet to be determined, initial estimates put them under the $300 mark for the set. They are looking to ship late this month. If you are keen to be amongst the first to have them, get down to your local Supercross BMX dealer (www.supercrossbmx.com.au/dealers) and pre-order a set today.
