Not long ago we shared the 2011 Flight series from Redline, and now we share with you the 2011 Redline Proline series, a step down from the Flight models.

Just like the Flight series, the Redline 2011 Proline series features 9 bikes, which are the Proline Pro 24, Proline Pro XL, Proline Pro, Proline Expert XL, Proline Expert, Proline Junior, Proline Micro, Proline Mini, and the Proline Pitboss.

The line comes in all sizes, and for the most part similar materials and components. For example, the frames for the 2011 Proline series is made from 6061-T6 Aluminum, and the forks are Chromoly (some are butted).
