About Avent Orca:
Avent Orca carbon frame is the latest product completing our composite collection. F1 and F7 fork, Tribal bars, CS and CSO rims and wheels which some of has been successfully around for over decade give us enough confidence to deliver one of the best bmx carbon frames ever. It took us over 3 years of designing and manufacturing to come up with functional shape where design meets the function and transfer into super stiff and responsive bmx frame. Taking safety first, we test each frame in 500.000 cycles, demonstrating all possible impacts and lifetime. High compression internal moulding technology allows us to optimize the critical dimensions, unlike other carbon frames. Greater compaction and smoother internal walls with greater consistency, deliver lighter, stronger, highly optimized frame design with best stiffness to weight ratio in the class.
BOTTOM BRACKET: Regular EURO BB
HEADSET: Internal 1.5 to 1 1/8 (HS comes with frame incl race crown for 1 1/8 steer tube fork. The micro- junior sizes comes with hardware to be assembled with 1″ fork ST 26.8.

Supercross “Envy BLK 2” BMX Race Frame
One of the most sough after BMX racing frames, The Supercross Envy BLK gets a major upgrade with the release of the ENVY BLK 2!!
“In 2014 when we introduced the ENVY BLK Carbon Fiber BMX race Frame, we changed the game for carbon fiber BMX race frame construction. By utilizing more advanced materials and molding processes.
Now for 2019, with the ENVY BLK 2, it’s time to change the game again. And as with our ENVY RS7, it’s evolutionary, not revolutionary.
Torayca T1100-KS SpecsUtilizing the same World Championship winning geometry of all the SupercrossBMX race frames, the ENVY BLK 2, is an evolutionary change by keeping the same mold and technique of the original ENVY BLK but utilizing a new carbon pre-preg material from Torray the new T1100-KS.
With the new Torray T1100-KS we are able to reduce the weight of the frame another 6% while increasing the frames strength and power transfer. This stuff is sick. The kind of material used for fighter jets, formula 1 cars, and you get to ride it. So what are you getting then? The lightest, Fastest, Strongest BMX racing frame on the planet, and the same comfortable , confident feel of your current ENVY BLK. Isn’t that what you have always wanted anyways.
Some of you have been screaming as well for custom paint jobs. And while we would love to offer you custom paint jobs, it just isn’t affordable to do customs with the ENVY BLK paint jobs , but with the new ENVY BLK 2, every frame is a bespoke custom. You select your frame size, ( and we have a lot of them, Junior, Expert, Expert XL, Expert XXL, Pro, Pro Plus, Pro XL, Pro XXL and new Pro XXXL ) select your color choice, Matte Carbon, Gloss Carbon, Matte White, Gloss White, Matte Hi Vis, Gloss Hi Vis, and then select your decal color from our wide range of colors, Gloss Silver, Cyan, Hi Vis Yellow, Matte Black, Gloss Black, Red, Fire Orange, and even a Digital Camo option. Then once your order is placed, we go ahead and start finishing up your new ENVY BLK 2, right here in Apple Valley, California. It uses a traditional threaded Euro BB Shell on all models as it has proven itself to be the most dependable BB interface. All dropouts are solid Torray Carbon fiber with Titanium inserts that are molded directly into the frame. The Junior thru Expert XXL use a 10mm ( 3/8″ ) rear axle size and the Pro size and larger use a 15mm rear dropout and is available with a 10mm axle adapter until you are ready to upgrade to the 15mm size. The headtubes use full molded Carbon Fiber bearing races that are a solid part of the headtube to provide the strongest headtube on the market. The Junior thru Expert XXL use a Campy Std. Size that lets you use either the 1″ or the 1 1/8″ steertube forks depending upon which bearing kit you use, and the Pro and Larger have the Tapered Integrated headtube to allow you to use the 1 1/8″ – 1.5″ steertube forks, and still accepts the traditional 1 1/8″ straight steertube.
All Supercross BMX ENVY BLK 2 Frames, like our traditional ENVY BLK accept a traditional V Brake system. Light weight, Easily adjustable and no need for a special hubset.”

FTB, Balance Bike Collection, Inspired By Classic BMX Builds
If you didn’t already know, Factory Team Bikes (FTB) makes a really cool, high quality balance bike collection. These bikes are built as legitimate mini BMX bikes for kids to get their balancing skills on point. The steel frames are also strong enough for the little ones to shred with worrying about shredding the bike to pieces ;). Not only are these bikes quality made, they also pay tribute to some of the icon BMX bikes from the 80’s.
Lots of companies make balance bikes, but none of them make a real BMX balance bike. So, when we decided to add a balance bike to the FTB BMX range, our mission wasn’t to beat our competitors on price, it was to beat them on quality. We wanted to make something you would be proud to see your kid ride (not some toy store piece of junk) but also something durable enough to eventually be passed on to family or friends to share the love of learning to ride a bike with future generations. A gift that keeps on giving! With its quality steel frame and forks, chunky tyres and sealed bearings throughout, not only is the FTB balance bike fully serviceable, you also get all the quality and great design which the FTB brand is renowned for. Kids these days have never had it so good! ~FTB
