The Chase ACT 1.2 (Advanced Carbon Technology) frame will continue where the ACT 1.0 left off, winning races around the world. The ACT 1.2 has already won the biggest races of 2020, including the USABMX Pro Title with Connor Fields piloting his bike to one of the year's biggest payouts! It is now avialable in new colours that gives this frame, in our opinion, one of the best finishes of any race frame we sell here at LUXBMX.
For the 2021 race year, the Chase ACT 1.2 frame utilises todays most advanced technology to manufacture a BMX racing frame that can not only take the power of the worlds top Pros, but deliver the perfect feel and that is not too stiff. We took the best of the best, the ACT 1.0 and made it even better with the ACT 1.2 with small, but significant improvements.
Winning UCI World Cup Championships & the USA BMX #1 Pro Title has given credibility to the Chase ACT line of Carbon racing frames. Over the past 2 years, the ACT frame has won more UCI and USA BMX Elite Mens Pro races than any other frame, but we don’t rest on past results. Over the past year, we have been hard at work trying to do the impossible, make the ACT 1.2 even better. After tweaking the design, building samples, testing, modifying, testing some more, we feel we have been able to do just that! Connor Fields and Joris Daudet had been riding the ACT 1.2 for over 10 months before we felt it was truly improved and ready for sale.
A few key improvements include:
The ACT 1.2 is designed with the highest quality Carbon Fibre know as UD (uni-direction) carbon fibre. UD has one of the highest tensile strength of Carbon Fiber and is at this time the ultimate type of Carbon Fiber to be used for a BMX frame. Tensile strength is the amount of force needed to cause the fibers to breakdown, while the tensile modulus is a measure of the carbon fiber’s stiffness. We exclusively use the UD Carbon when building the Chase ACT 1.2 Frame to make sure the frames are of the highest quality available. Its not only stronger than most strands of Carbon Fibre but it is also lighter, but this all comes with a higher cost. But when we designed the ACT frames, we were worried about performance and quality first, price was an afterthought.
