I’d like a frame on which it’d be comfortable to balance on the front wheel, easy to spin and, at the same time, jump high, because I love to bunnyhop. I can honestly say that I’ve managed to come up with it after creating truly unique geometrics.

Roma Shalimov

The gold standard currently is 13″ chain strays. But Roma needs a frame for high bunnyhopping, so he’s extended the chain strays to 13.1″, plus, the dropout allows them to be further increased up to 13.4″. It’s easier to jump high with the frame this way, but it would be a little bit more difficult to spin with short chain strays, if it wasn’t for one ‘but’…

The Hype frame has a non-standard angle of inclination of the headtube – 75.66° – for two reasons: balancing on the front wheel and spins. Everything is clear with the first one: the larger the angle of the headtube, the easier it is to balance on the front wheel. The second improvement is not so obvious. The thing is that the more acute the angle of the headtube is, the shorter the base of the bike is; the shorter the base of the bike is, the easier it spins. Thus, a longer angle of inclination makes up for longer chain stays, and longer chain stays help to bunnyhop higher.


As with all STRESS frames, the Hype frame has 4 gussets on the top and down tubes: two internal and two external. This makes the front triangle very strong with very little weight added to it.

Another unusual solution was the 72° inclination angle of the seatpost. We have already used the same solution in the STRESS frame called The Aim. As back then, this is done for easier and faster barspinning. The saddle kind of becomes closer to the knees, and it takes less time and effort to clench it with your knees.


The down tube has been heat-treated just like on the other two frames of our brand. This is done to avoid any dents from unsuccessful sliding down the stair-railing.

The area where the chain stays are welded to the seatpost is the second thing that often breaks according to the breakage BMX frames statistics. That’s why we add gussets between the chain stays on all our frames. The gussets evenly distribute the load between the chain stays and the tubes of the front triangle. It actually works. Over the years, not even one of our frames has been broken in this spot.

Нижняя труба термообработана, как на двух других рамах брэнда. Это сделано, чтобы избежать вмятин от неудачных скольжений по перилам.
