DK Bicycles are changing up the Professional-X range of bikes for 2022 by introducing the army green frame from 2020 as the basis for their DK Professional-X Pro Bike group of race completes. After years of black Professional frames, we're stoked to see this colourway offered as standard as we built a few of these for customers as straight frame swaps, as well as building a couple of customs from the ground up. The Professional-X frame includes a Hydroformed tube set with tear drop and hourglass bridges and the low-profile geometry of each frame size is crafted for speed and stability. With features like internal brake cable routing, tapered head tube
A suite of race proven parts bolted onto this frame carry the speed theme from the bars to the tyres, with BOX One X5 carbon forks marrying perfectly with the tapered head tube of the frame. The 20mm front end set-up of the BOX forks and Duo hub stiffens up the front end to give the rider confidence to rail turns. Other touches include a Promax brake set, Promax QR seat post clamp and a BOX Echelon seat/post combo, leaving you without much to change other than the bar position and swapping in you clip pedals of choice.
We build our fair share of custom bikes hear at LUX and you couldn't build a bike of this level and performance at this price by piecing together individual parts. Solid 10 out of 10 from the race crew here at the shop. Since it's introduction, the Professional-X has raced countless UCI World Cups and USABMX Nationals, and can be seen at tracks all over Australia. This alone tells you it has right stuff to land you on the podium along with elite riders the world over.
