We’re very excited to announce the arrival of a whole new range of alloy framed bikes with Colony for all in Australia.
The Horizon range of micro freestyle bikes are aimed to be light weight, great spec list & awesome bang for the buck little bikes. These are perfect for the younger riders getting into BMX as they’re the right size & weight for them to be able to progress with BMX & have fun.
Based around a light weight 6061T6 alloy frame & using smaller geometry than most other bikes of this type with shorter frame lengths, small bars & shorter cranks it all adds up to a great bike for youngsters to start off on.
In the range we have a 12″, 14″ 16″, 18″ & 20″ wheeled version.
Something for every young BMXer at various stages in development.
Featuring sealed bearing wheels with 9T driver in the rear, integrated headset, sealed MID BB with tubular CrMo 3 piece cranks, railed seats so the angle can be set just right.
Check them out now at a dealer near you in Australia.
Yo yo !!

Watch some highlight clips of Chris James and Josh Dove from a practice session at the Vans BMX Pro Cup, check it out.
Alex Hiam has some clips around the 5 minute mark in this video from the 2nd day of practice at the Battle of Hastings. Loved the whip to ice fakie on the sub.
We have some new cranks starting to drop around the planet in the weeks ahead.
Our Venator Cranks have been in the testing stages for about 18 months now. The guys on the team have been giving them a pounding & we’re stoked on the results.
These will be one of the strongest yet also lightest sets of cranks on the market.
Using a new welding technique we’re able to use unique shaped cranks arms but actually increasing the strength of the cranks while doing so.
A hollow 22mm spindle also keeps the weight down along with 7075T6 alloy spindle bolts.
Available in 165mm, 170mm & 175mm lengths.
ED Black or Chrome.
