For 2012, Redline has introduced a carbon frame for BMX called Flight for the first time. After thorough research and deliberation, Redline has chosen carbon fiber in order to achieve an excellent strength to weight ratio as well as an ultimately flexible design.
In specific areas of the Flight frame, Redline was able to either increase or decrease the amount of fibers through a carbon fiber manufacturing process. This process allowed for the optimum adjustments on the frame’s weight, ride quality, and stiffness.
With a Euro BB, integrated headtube, and enclosed 15mm dropouts, the 2012 Redline Flight Carbon Frame weighs 1.27 kg and 1.36kg for XL and XXL sizes respectively. This means that this frame is 25% lighter as compared to the Flight R6 alloy frame.
