We refined a few areas of the original Chase frame to take the Chase RSP 2.0 to the next level.

The best frame in BMX just got a little bit better.

The RSP 2.0 features a refined newly shaped intergrated head tube that directs the brake cable routing through it. The brake cable runs through the head tube, alongside the steer tube, into the top tube and the cable exits in the rear of the Top Tube. This gives the frame and ultra smooth look while hiding the cable! The RSP 2.0 frames come with brake cable housing already threaded into the frame.

The RSP 2.0 also features a refined BB shell to not only help reduce weight, but offer the rider a stiffer design, that helps reduce flex and put more power to the rear wheel by increasing the surface area and adding strength to the chain stays. Another new feature on the 2.0 frame is the curved seat stay brace, again reducing weight and increasing stiffness slightly from the 1.0 frame. Its a small change, but its the attention to detail on the RSP 2.0 frame is what makes it the best Alloy Frame in BMX racing today.

Chase RSP BMX frames were designed to be the leader among the current options of Alloy BMX frames. Chase worked with our Manufacturing engineers to offer you the best of modern technology with using ultra light 7005 T4/T6 Heat treated Alloy, that features Hydro formed, tapered, oval and swedged tubing, double butted and triple butted tubes, CNC 3D 7mm dropouts, CNC intergrated head tubes, and beautiful & detailed ultra light water graphics applied under a clear coat.

Chase RSP 2.0 frames are offered in 12 different sizes:
– 10 different 20″ frames : Mini, Junior, Expert, Expert XL, Pro, Pro+, Pro XL, Pro XL+, Pro XXL, and Pro XXL+
– 2 options in 24″ frames: Pro or Pro XL Cruiser

We are also excited about the new design of the graphics, for a clean, factory look. Chase only uses an ultra hi tech process to utilize super thin decals under the clear coat, than not only keeps your frame looking better, but it also helps keep the weight of the all over graphics on the frame to a minimum. it may not seem like much, but when a race is decided by inches, the reduce weight is a key to victory!

The entire offering of Chase RSP 2.0 frames is available in three colors :

Brilliant Black with White Graphics
Winning White with Black Graphics
Polished with Black Graphics

The Chase RSP 2.0 frames main features are the proprietary to Chase, Hydro-formed double butted top tube & triple butted down tube. The RSP 2.0 also features an integrated brake cable mounting system, with the cable entering the frame through the head tube. The RSP 2.0 chain & seat stays both utilize a special process: muscle forming to give a unique look not only giving added strength & stiffness, but it creates one of the lightest & stiffest BMX frames available today. Chase adds these incredible features while remaining true to the traditional look of BMX racing frames while adding cutting edge racing performance, pushing the evolution of the BMX race frame.

Other features include the Hydro formed or tear drop shaped tubing that is on the RSP 2.0 Frames are custom designed, radically shaped, & drawn aluminum alloy for weight savings and stiffness that help give optimal strength and rigidity to the frame. A new curved seat stay brace helps add a touch more stiffness, tire clearance, and also lightens up the frame. That along with the newly hour glass shaped BB, again, helps lighten up the RSP 2.0, as well as stiffen up the power transfer area of the frame.

The Hydro formed tubes have two main advantages.
First, the narrow axis is a flatter surface, which means more surface area to carry the load, so it is stiffer & stronger across the minor axis.
Secondly, the deeper axis is stiffer since the stiffness varies to the cube of the diameter, stronger to the square. When using an oval shaped tube on a typical BMX frame it helps reduce flex but only in one direction, but on the Chase RSP 2.0 frame, the tubes are oval in both directions in the main flex areas and these tubes help reduce flex in both main directions.

Born from some of the best alloys for building BMX race bikes, our special 7005-T6 SpeedLite alloy is the perfect blend for our Hydro-forming process, giving the Element frames the core strength needed to produce unmatched speed on the track, while keeping the overall weight of the frame down to a minimum.

While each rider is unique, Chase Bicycles has developed Bio Fit sizing for our frames to offer riders the ultimate size options for BMX racing. The sizing used for the Chase line has been carefully designed to give riders the optimum power output in the size range offered. Our commitment to details and offering many size options, gives you a custom fit BMX frame, that you can buy right at your local Chase BMX Dealer.

Chase Bicycles utilizes tapered tubing to offer you the most durable, yet light weight products, to help you achieve optimum results on the BMX race track. Our tapered items, use multiple thicknesses in the same tube, so the tube can be reinforced where needed with precision to help reduce stress areas where needed and lighten up the areas that don’t require extra materials. In aluminum the result are tube walls that eliminate stress points, boosting strength, reducing weight and improving fatigue life. The advantage is clear : Tapered tubes enhances strength and durability, at less weight.
