“Necessity is the mother of invention”
After some research and further market studies, David realised that regardless whether you are a professional or an amateur rider there was a specific need in the global market of BMX in order for the progression that could potentially advance and help some riders to improve their performance, and simply to push the motivation to ride BMX. That would be developing lighter and stronger products and components.

SO WHAT WAS MISSING vs. WHAT IS NEEDED?
A general first thought was naturally to create a much lighter BMX bicycle. But, that also most importantly needs to be strong and durable for all kind of disciplines within the sports of BMX taking into consideration the jumps, hard landings and crashes. Ultimately, the idea is to enhance and improve the performance in terms of riding BMX as a hobby and pure pleasure as well as a profession for elite BMX athletes. However, foremost to promote this highly entertaining and joyful sports art to new comers and kids. A light BMX bike will encourage anyone of all sizes, age and to encourage more female riders.
