Korean bicycle manufacturer Wiawas BMX has a new carbon race frame and fork offering called the Atom-X. With the Atom-x, Wiawis have used the more traditional carbon BMX construction rather than the glued in tubes of their flagship Rokon frame. I’m loving that candy red colorway with white decals!
Wiawis describes the Atom-X, incorporates ‘graphene nano technology’ . according to the company, they say that the application of of Graphene Nano Technology makes a lighter bike, stronger and more flexible. I wonder what they mean by “more flexible”? Maybe they mean not as flexible as the average carbon frame but still stiffer than aluminum? Your guess is as goo as mine. Tell us what you think they mean in the comment section below.
The frame comes in sizes that range from Expert up to ProXXL. It features a press fit BB86 bottom bracket and a rear drop-outs that can fit 10, 15 or 20mm axles(with adapters). There will also be two versions of the frame, one for V-brakes and one for disc brakes. The disk brake version of the Atom-X will have no V-brake mounts.

This is my first time ever hearing about graphene nano technology. Time to do some learning 😉
