ICE ‘’RAPTOR’’ CARBON BMX FRAME
Frameset delivered with IRC ‘’Ice Roller Coaster’’ chain tensioning system and rear Ø15mm thru-axle.
Manufacturing using advanced technological processes
This ICE ‘’RAPTOR’’ frame is made from best quality Toray T700 + T800 carbon fiber (T800 used for reinforcement). Not many brands use the T800….
Frame is molded in 2 parts and then stuck during making.
Glue used is a high-quality American glue named 9432
According to the forces to which a BMX Race frame is subjected, local reinforcement must be carried out. EPS moulding technology allows us to go even further in reinforcement and finishing when manufacturing our RAPTOR frames.
3D technology is used for the design of these EPS . We use finishing EPS which are then wrapped in LATEX, allowing an optimal modling of the fiber avoiding any overlapping of it and making the internal structure of our frames perfectly wrinkled . This way fiber is perfectly oriented, transition of angles is smooth, avoiding any concentration of stresses on a specific point.This is why our frames are reliable, resulting from an optimal design .
‘’ARCH’’-type rear stays designed to be uses with a rear disc-brake caliper in Flatmount standard, which makes everything very discrete and classy. This system allows a Ø140mm brake rotor.
Rear dropouts designed for a mounting with a rear Ø15mm thru-axle (Ø 15mm axle delivered with frameset ) or 10mm axle (adapters also delivered with frameset).
Technology and standards used
- Our RAPTOR frame are delivered with our revolutionary I.R.C chain-tensioning by integrated spring system (ICE Roller Coaster) . This system allows avoiding any tight spot on your chain, and will above all allow you to keep a precise rear wheel setting, as you will no longer have to disassemble the rear wheel to remove your chain. Saves precious time when changing a chainring between 2 races !
- Internally-guided cables using carbon-made ‘’Pipeline’’for a smooth guiding and appreciable ease of assembly.
Housing inlet at the head tube and outlet at the inner level of the left chainstay for direct connection to your brake caliper.
- Tapered head tube at integrated standard (SHIS : IS42/28,6-IS52/40)
(Also accepts mounting of a fork with a 1'1/8 steerer with a reducing baseplate)
- External BSA 24 (Shimano Hollowtech II) bottom bracket
Robustness proven in laboratory
All our frames are subjected to to a battery of laboratory tests, with requirements revised upwards compared to the usual necessary data for passing standards, to ensure that you have your hands on a very resistant product. (frontal / rear impact tests, fatigue/torsion tests…)
