Increasing the strength of the front triangle in comparison with other frames 66%
Increasing the strength of the rear triangle in comparison with other frames 52%

According to statistics, in 60% of cases, the frame breaks near the head tube. This place is a real stress concentrator.


In addition to external gussets on both tubes, we also use branded integrated gussets. This means that tube walls are 66% thicker where the main load, and thinner where there is no load. As a result, we have not seen a  The Crew frame broken in this place over the past 5 years.

The second weak unit in most cases is the place where the seat stays are welded to the seat tube. It accounts for about 30% of all broken frames.


On all our frames, we made an additional gusset between the seat stays, which increased the strengths of this place almost twice.

The chain stays break less often, but instead of a standard bridge, we also made our brand wolfbone gusset.

We heat-treated the down tube to prevent dents from unsuccessful grinds.


We made the walls of both tubes of the frame thicker where necessary, and thinner where possible. The walls of the tubes change their thickness up to 3 times - this is called triple butting.

Rear end 12.9 – this is the modern middle ground. It fits any rider. With this rear end, it is very easy to spin, turn on a manual, and the bunny hop is still hight.

We are fans of understated BBs, in our opinion, this is the most underestimated frame characteristic. By lowering the BB, you bring your center of gravity closer to the bike’s center of gravity, and your bike becomes more intuitive. In addition, the load on the loin is significantly reduced, which is also important.
