The Redline RL 20 II Prostyler tube set remains one of, if not THE, most innovative and complex of any BMX frame, fork, and handlebar combinations ever designed. The first (of many) steps in the manufacturing process is "swaging" or, in non-engineering language, "tapering" the USA made 4130 tubing to achieve the sleek aesthetic the Redline RL 20 II Prostyler is revered for. Our raw tubing begins its journey in San Diego before heading north on the 5 Freeway to south Los Angeles, to take its new form in our proprietary swaging dyes. The material is literally forced into its new dimensional profile in a rotary swager. And the complexity doesn't end there, as we create custom pressure and bending dyes to enable the tapered tubing to be adequately secured in the bending

Peter Adam takes his video production in a whole other direction with the release of LIFERS, a film focused on a select group of riders in DIG's birthplace of Belfast, Northern Ireland who all started riding around 1980 at the height of 'The Troubles' in their hometown. Riding against the backdrop of violent sectarian, state, and terrorist conflict, made BMX in Belfast let's say, 'a little more challenging', than it was for most riders growing up in the eighties elsewhere.
Some months ago, RBK started the process of developing a mold for the Flyte Tech Seat. This was of course a product that was specified on the RL 20 II Prostyler, among many other Freestyle bikes from the mid-1980s era including Kuwahara, Peregrine, etc. RBK receive regular communication requesting this product, and it's now offered in three classic colors - Black, White, and Blue. Because the Flyte Tech seat is a non-Redline product that falls outside our RBK manufacturing plan, this product is offered on the shortest lead time possible and produced in a mold that has already been developed, refined, reviewed, and readied for its first shot of resin. The first order has a quantity cap to meet the desirable delivery timeframe and as RBK have no insight into demand.
