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.

Yeti Bikes has released one of the latest mountain bike frames for 2012 called SB66. Four of the major features of this 3.17kg frame include switch technology, more responsive mid stroke, efficient pedaling, and continuous travel. It is available in lime, turquoise, black, and white colors.

An unconventional mechanism is used by the optimized dual-link design called switch technology, which is combined with the leverage ratio’s flat linear shape for a more responsive mid stroke. By rotating the eccentric link rearward, efficient pedaling is achieved without compromising its small bump sensitivity.

When the 2012 Yeti SB66 Mountain Bike Frame gets to the inflection point, the forward clockwise rotation of the eccentric link begins. With this continuous travel, the rate at which the chain stay develops drops fast so the suspension can work separately from pedal feedback and chain forces.
