  • BMX-Category2
  • Gravity
  • Free Ride
  • Downhill

Bikes designed for jumping, hucking, high speeds, or aggressive riding on rougher surfaces, or landing on flat surfaces. However, this type of riding is extremely hazardous and puts unpredictable forces on a bicycle which may overload the frame, fork, or parts. If you choose to ride in this terrain, you should take appropriate safety precautions such as more frequent bike inspections and replacement of equipment. You should also wear comprehensive safety equipment such as a full-face helmet, pads, and body armour.

INTENDED For riding that includes the most difficult terrain that only very skilled riders should attempt.

NOT INTENDED To be indestructible. There is no guarantee that extreme riding will not break your bike or your body. Appropriate equipment should be worn but cannot guarantee safety in all eventualities. The terrain and type of riding that "extreme" bikes are designed for is inherently dangerous and this kind of riding, bad judgment, bad luck, or riding beyond your capabilities can easily result in an accident, where you could suffer serious injury or fatality.

Maximum permissible load:
Rider: 95kg
Luggage: 0kg
Total: 95kg
