With USABMX Grands past us and the new year fast approaching we’re gonna be seeing all the new BMX racing treats for 2018. One of the biggest treats to wrap this week was seen on Dale Holmes Instagram and FB feed with a photo of the 2018 Haro Black Out Pro XL complete!
This bike looks mean, fast and exotic all at the same time! And the first thing you’ll notice right away (especially if your a Haro fan) is after years and years of incorporating blue into their BMX bike’s colorways, they switched things up and are now using gold as the main accent for 2018 on the Blackout. The gloss black paint job on the frame really help to bring out the gold contrast and we also love the big, bold lettering of Haro’s branding on the frame too. Even the forks are done in the gloss black color way to match the frame.
The 2018 Blackout is not just a great looking bike, it’s also loaded with race ready parts. Check out the features list below…
