Introducing the all-new Inspyre Concorde V3 frame, the result of two years of intensive testing and development in close collaboration with the Inspyre team. Completely redesigned, it stands out as one of the most advanced aluminium frames in the BMX Race market.

The Concorde V3 features brand-new tubes throughout the frame, except for the top tube. Each tube of this frame has been meticulously hydroformed to achieve an optimal balance between lightweight, strength, and aerodynamics. Attention to detail is evident, particularly in the innovative design of the intersection between the top tube, bottom bracket, and rear stays. This intersection, the widest on a current aluminum BMX Race frame, is the result of precise engineering by the Inspyre team.

The generous cross-sectional area and smooth transitions ensure optimal load distribution, creating a structure with exceptional lateral rigidity. This increased rigidity significantly enhances pedalling efficiency, ensuring optimal power transmission to the drivetrain. By minimizing frame flex, the Concorde V3 maximizes energy return, providing an unparalleled riding experience on BMX tracks. The use of variable thickness tubes represents a major advancement, allowing the Concorde V3 to reduce weight by 15% compared to its predecessor, the V2, without compromising overall strength and rigidity.

The aesthetics of the Concorde V3 have been meticulously crafted. This new model features flat welds, providing an outstanding quality finish. On the paint side, no detail has been overlooked, with the application of stickers under varnish, adding an extra touch of refinement. Every element has been considered to ensure not only optimal performance but also an elegant and polished visual appearance.

Its brand-new hourglass-shaped CNC-machined headtube brings an entirely new dynamic to the bike. Following the IS 45 x 45 standard, we recommend the use of PRIDE RACING headset kits that perfectly match the shape of the headtube. The Concorde's headtubes remain low, measuring 110 mm for children and 115 mm for adults. Why? To lower the cockpit as much as possible, promoting an aggressive position at the start and on the track.

The new oversized rear stays offer increased rigidity, and our assembly of stays with a wide bottom bracket further contributes to this robustness. The stays adjust perfectly to the full width of the bottom bracket to provide maximum lateral rigidity.

The Junior, Expert, and Expert XL versions feature specific tubes adapted to the morphology of young riders, ensuring a bike that is less rigid and lighter than the adult version. After all, our young riders are lighter and less powerful, so why offer the same tubes and structure?

The SWELL rear dropout system has been completely redesigned to offer an improved user experience. The SWELL V2 dropouts provide a real adjustment range of 25 mm. The internal plates made of 7075-T6 aluminum that make up the dropout remain in place even when you remove the wheel, offering optimal ease of use during maintenance. The chain tensioning system is achieved using two CNC-machined knobs, all mounted on a stainless steel axle. The disc dropout is in the post-mount standard for a 120 mm disc, however, it is still possible to ride with a 140 mm disc thanks to a +20 mm spacer. This dropout comes standard for 10 mm axles, but we offer a specific kit for mounting wheels with 15 mm axles. Furthermore, this dropout is compatible with the latest ADS chain tensioner, offering the ability to adjust your wheelbase regardless of your gear ratio.

With this frame, Inspyre redefines the standards of performance in BMX Race, providing riders with an exceptional platform to push their limits on the track.

*The determination of Head Tube Angles and BB height is influenced by the choice of fork and tires. We've meticulously calibrated our angles to ensure accuracy when paired with a Pride Carbon Fork, and when using TIOGA Fastr or PowerBlock tires. This configuration guarantees precise angles and measurements. However, employing alternative forks and tires may introduce a deviation, either positive or negative, in both heights and angles.

FREESTYLE VS RACING BMX BIKES?

Choosing the correct bike for your discipline is extremely important, and sometimes for those new to the sport it can be difficult to know or decide, so we’ve broken down the main differences to help you make a decision. 

Freestyle bikes are designed for the skatepark, the streets or the trails.  They are constructed from strong, hard wearing materials and usually feature Steel or Chromoly frames.  This means that the bike can stand up to a certain amount of impacts and hard landings, but remember no bike is indestructible.  For riders looking to learn tricks and stunts, then a freestyle bike is the correct choice.

Race bikes are designed specifically with the track in mind, they are nimble lightweight machines for putting down quick lap times.  Typically, they are constructed from lightweight materials like aluminium and carbon fibre to keep the weight down and the rider at the front of the pack.  These bikes are strong enough for smooth landings on race and pump tracks but will not take the abuse that a freestyle bike would in concrete skateparks.  If you’re looking to set fast lap times or begin your competitive career on the track, a race bike is the right choice. 

WHAT SIZE BIKE WOULD I NEED?

Choosing the correct size BMX bike is very important, bikes that are too large will be cumbersome and hard to manoeuvre and bikes that are too small can feel cramped and hard to keep under control.  

Youth freestyle bikes are sized depending on the diameter of the wheel staring at 12” all the way through to 18”, at a 20” wheel the bike is considered an adult size.  Adult freestyle bikes are sized on top tube length, a 18.5” top tube is extra small for younger teenagers who have just moved up to an adult bike, a 20” top tube is small, 20.5” a medium and anything over a 21” is considered large.

Race bikes feature 20-inch wheels on all models, but the components and frame are sized dependent on age and height.  Youth race bikes start from a Micro size for very young riders and offer a range of sizes through to expert XL.  Pro size and upwards are considered adult bikes and are usually offered up to a Pro XXXL or larger for very tall riders. 

We recommend consulting our height charts from the link below to help you choose your perfect sized bike:

WHAT LEVEL DO I NEED?

Choosing the right level bike for your riding ability is important.  Components that are not suitable for your level of riding can wear or fail much sooner than expected.  Although BMX bikes can look very similar, under the surface components and materials used can vary greatly. 

All our bikes are cherry picked from the very best BMX specialist brands, and all our bikes are designed specifically for use at the skatepark or on the track. 

FREESTYLE BIKES

For first time riders new to the sport our entry level bikes, priced from £200-£400, are perfect, most of these are made from high tensile steel which means they are still relatively strong, but can be slightly heavier than higher end models.  You might find you’ll want to upgrade to something lighter sooner than you’d think.  If you are planning on using the bike in rain or bad weather, we do strongly advise choosing a model with fully sealed bearings all round. 

If you are already confident on a bike and have some experience in skateparks or performing tricks and jumps then we would recommend choosing a mid-range bike, priced from £400 to £700, with a full Chromoly frame, fork, and bars.  This will be lighter and stronger than an entry level model.

 For an experienced person that is already capable of performing most tricks and has previously owned BMX bikes then a high-end complete bike, or full custom would be suggested to meet the demands of this rider, these bikes are priced from £700 plus. 

RACE BIKES

Our range of entry level race bikes are perfect for first time racers, usually priced between £200 and £400 most of these are constructed of heavier steel rather than aluminium. These are great to get a feel for the sport but would not be able to keep up in a competitive environment. 

Our mid-range race bikes are the perfect for riders who are beginning their path to competitive racing.  Priced between £400 and £800 these are not quite the high-end steeds you see at national level races, but they all feature lightweight aluminium frames and are designed specifically with the racetrack in mind.

For experienced riders who are already racing confidently at a competitive level we offer a small range of high-end complete bikes.  These are usually priced between £800 and £1500 and feature many aftermarket components like carbon forks, disc brakes and folding tyres.  However, at this level we highly recommend building a full custom bike, usually costing between £1500 and £3000 all components can be chosen specifically with the rider in mind.  For help on building a custom bike give us a call or drop us an email!

CASSETTE OR FREECOASTER

One of our most frequently asked questions in freestyle is, which rear hub do I want, a freecoaster or a cassette?  Most experienced riders know their preference, but if you’re new to the sport it can be difficult to know which choice to make. 

The main difference between the two is the way the bike performs when going backwards.  A traditional cassette hub requires the rider to pedal in time with the rotation of the wheel while travelling backwards, while a freecoaster allows the rider to travel backwards while keeping the pedals level in the same position as riding forwards.

Although this may seem like a brilliant feature, it does come at a price!  Freecoaster hubs feature a “Slack” before engagement while pedalling forward.  This means that you can turn the crank a set amount (Usually an adjustable amount) before the drivetrain engages.  This is referred to as the “Slack”, when riding backwards you must keep your feet positioned within the slack, if your pedals rotate too much the drivetrain will engage and your pedals will start to rotate.  The smaller the slack, the harder it is to keep your pedal positioned within it while riding backwards.  This means that certain tricks are harder to perform, especially those that rely on pedal pressure, for example Tire Taps.
