BMX Race Frames
The use of materials for race BMX frames is where they differ the most compared to freestyle frames. Race BMX frames are usually made of lightweight materials, such as aluminum and carbon. Compared to freestyle frames, typically made of steel, race frames are not suitable for tricks as in freestyle riding.
Design wise, BMX frames for race are built with a longer rear end, which makes the complete BMX more stable in the air. This also results in a later balance point compared to freestyle BMX frames.
