We expect the 2023 Chase Element bikes to likely to sell as fast as the models from the past couple of years with this range from Chase having established itself as incredible value for the racer looking to step up from an entry level bike and onto a race machine capable of winning at state and national level racing. Out of the box, the Element Expert sports components that includes gear like race proven Answer carbon fibre Dagger forks, along with a hydraulic disc brake system. It's the first step in the Element Pro range, a perfect race rig for riders coming up through the ranks from something like a Expert or Expert XL bike and is not quite ready to take the plunge to a full custom, ground up build. Not that the Chase Element will leave the rider wanting for anything with the part's list continues with legit brands like Elevn, Insight and Tioga used for key components on this super quick complete race bike..
With design cues from the top of the range Chase alloy RSP frame series, the Element's geometry has input from Chase's Olympic champion Connor Fields, and 4X USABMX title winner Joris Daudet. The Pro L Element with a 20.5"" top tube is suited to the rider jumping up from a expert sized bike who's grown enough to skip the expert XL level, particularly if they are really starting to hit bigger jumps. The 20 inch wheelset with a 20x1.75/1.60 combo will soak up cases that inevitably will happen. It's all part of development and with a little ""suspension"" built into the bigger tyres, the rider on this bike will progress further and faster than ever before. Especially with the DNA of the Chase brand in every Element.
Even with a little customisation to dial this bike in for the rider, this bike won't lose out to racers on bikes costing two or three times as much as the value for money Chase. You won't be disappointed when you roll down the hill the first time with a massive smile on your face!
