Before the Quadangle there was the STR-1. This dates back to the late 1970s when Stu Thomsen was SE Racing’s National #1 pro and the sport’s first superstar. His signature frame at the time was the Stu Thomsen Replica-1. The STR-1 frame had a unique design with both of the double down tubes wrapping underneath the bottom bracket shell and continuing around the Looptail rear end all the way back to the seat tube. Less than ten STR-1 bikes were produced, making them almost mythical and the most sought-after frames of all time in the vintage BMX world. Fast forward over 40 years to today and SE is proud to bring you the third STR retro bike, the limited edition STR-24. All of the unique features and radness of the original STR-1, but built for the cruiser class with 24” wheels. This bike comes with an authentic SE Racing/Stu Thomsen trading card personally signed by Stu.
Kona’s Big Honzo takes the playful, slack geometry Honzo uses to light up singletrack, and ups the ante with bigger rubber and bigger fun. With 27.5 x 2.8 Maxxis Rekon tires wrapped around WTB’s Scraper rims, your footprint opens up like a sled-dog’s paw, aggressively clawing earth and floating over terrain with ease. Kona really wants you to use ALL that extra traction, so they hook you up with a stiff, nimble aluminum frame that squeezes speed out of descents and begs to be swooped through corners. A RockShox Recon Silver fork plows through chunky trails with 120mm of go-fast travel, so you can rip through the gears of your 11-speed SRAM NX drivetrain. And, while we know you love to go fast, everyone eventually has to scrub some speed to nail a line. Take heart, Shimano’s got your back with a pair of burly hydraulic disc brakes that’ll slow you down in a hurry, especially with all that grip. Add the solid control offered by Kona’s durable cockpit parts with a work-and-play dropper post, and you’ve got a rig that’ll keep you grinning for hours on end.
In the late 70’s, BMX wasn’t the only groundbreaking sport that was taking America by storm. Alongside BMX kids on bikes imitating motorcycles, there was a wave of shaggy haired California kids on skateboards mimicking surfers. At the heart of the skate scene in Venice Beach, CA, Dogtown Skates was born. This year we teamed up with one of the most iconic skate brands of Southern California culture to create the Dogtown Big Ripper. This bike features some of the most legendary logos of the skate scene that truly can’t be missed.
The Fat Ripper is the world’s first and only legit 26” fat BMX bike. It’s built around 26” x 3.5” Vee Speedster tires and a legendary PK Ripper-styled 6066 aluminum frame. New this year is an outboard bearing sealed bottom bracket and the addition of Avid BB5 front disc brakes. There really is no stopping this bike. It’s ready to monster truck over everything!
A staple in BMX for nearly as long as the sport has been in existence, the 26” OM Flyer was originally designed by and named after SE’s founder, Scot “Old Man” Breithaupt. This bike captures the essence of BMX's past four decades. It is built to last with a retro styled 4130 Cr-Mo frame featuring a classic Looptail rear end. New this year are the sealed bearing SE Mohawk hubs along with two gold SE wheelie pegs. All hail the OM.
In the spirit of SE's legendary motto of “BMX Innovations,” they went deep into the design lab this year to develop the speediest ripper ever, the 29-inch Fast Ripper. They took the Big Ripper and re-engineered it with a SRAM GX 1x10 drivetrain, Shimano Deore 10-speed cassette, Avid BB5 disc brakes, an integrated headset, and internal cable routing. This bike is built for speed so it’s only fitting that it comes equipped with Freedom ThickSlick tires. It’s fast. Can you keep up?
