The evolution of winning continues with the Chase RSP 5.0 frame's latest itteration being a culmination of refinements and upgrades brought forward from the day Connor Fields first jumped on the RSP 1.0 and started his domination of BMX racing in the USA, and onto an Olympic gold medal. The RSP 5.0 shares its racing winning geometry traits with the carbon ACT 1.2 Chase frame, at a price that will let you throw all the best parts at it.
In fact, the RSP 5.0 is slightly off the ACT's game by being offered as a disc only frame with a redesign of the dropouts allowing for better clearance for a wide array of disc brake calipers, improving the overall braking performance, and now compatible for both post and flat mount disc brake system. Here at LUX we've witnessed the gradual move towards disc brake only frames and we are totally behind this design movement as it allows the youngest of riders to properly control their bike with a disc system requiring only a fraction of the finger strength that a conventional V-brake set up needs.
Additionally, the Chase RSP 5.0 Frames feature tapered headtube (Expert XL and above sizes), an Aero Seat Post tube, Enclosed Rear dropouts, Press Fit Bottom Brackets (Expert XL and Above), Triple and Double Butted tubes, Hydro and Muscle formed 7005 T6 Premium Ultralight tubing. RSP 5.0 Frames now feature a new internal cable routing from the ead Tube, through the down tube & bottom bracket, and exits out of the chainstay (Expert XL and larger), and for the Mini – Expert, the cable exits out of the bottom of the down tube. Internal routing keeps everything nice and tidy and combined with the lack of brake posts and mounts, gives the RSP 5.0 a super sleek look. Especially when it is paired with the new colours and graphics of this latest model.
The Expert Chase RSP 5.0 with it's 19.5" top tube without doubt will turn your young rider into a race winner as they follow their dreams to be the next Izaac Kennedy on BMX tracks across Australia. Kit it out with Ikon and Elevn components to reproduce the look, and race carving abilities of the Chase Pro riders' rides. With seven colour options available, there is plenty of chance to individualise your Chase RSP 5.0.
