Hit corners harder and with more accuracy. Race Axles offer more composure in harsh G-outs.

WHAT ARE RACE AXLES?

Sensei suspension swingarm does not have bridges between each side. Instead, we have a patent pending bridgeless swingarm. Our axles have bores that create a rigid construction for the swingarm. The upside of this design is that there’s massive tire clearance, ease of service, and we control the stiffness EXACTLY how we want. Racing Axles makes the swingarm 30% stiffer. 

WHY STIFFER

Stiffer is not for everyone. Most riders are better off with a more compliant frame. A Stiff frame is something that does not give in and is not easy to bend. A very stiff frame would mean a bike that is very accurate in turning at high speeds and is not so forgiving of the mistakes we make. We have learned that a nimbler rear triangle is easier to corner at low speed. Overall the bike is more tolerant of errors and more comfortable. 

WHO IS THE RACE AXLES FOR?

Racers, big boys, and fast riders. You know if you need them.

EXO casing is light weight and suitable for trail riding.
DD casing is best of both worlds.
DH casing is the perfect option for bike parks and downhill use.

Maxxis Minion DHF 2.5

With a tread design that deftly balances rolling speed with braking and cornering traction, it’s no wonder why the Minion DHF is one of the most imitated tires in mountain biking.

Maxxis Minion DHR II 2.4

With side knobs borrowed from the legendary Minion DHF, but widened to provide more support, the DHR II corners like no other. The center tread features ramped leading edges to improve acceleration to create a smooth transition when leaning the bike. Paddle-like knobs on the center tread dig in under hard braking and help keep the bike under control.

Maxxis Assegai 2.5

Greg Minnaar’s signature tire – the Maxxis Assegai – provides tenacious, predictable grip across the entire profile no matter the lean angle.


EXO casing

EXO is a cut- and abrasion-resistant material added to the sidewalls. This densely woven fabric is lightweight and highly flexible, ensuring that the performance of the tire remains unaffected. Choose EXO Protection for enhanced durability for XC, and light-duty trail riding.


DOUBLE DOWN casing (DD)

DoubleDown (DD) is the solution for enduro racing and e-bike use. Two layers of lightweight 120 TPI casing material are combined with a butyl sidewall insert to create a highly durable tire with more trail feedback than a Downhill casing tire. DoubleDown tires are marginally lighter than their Downhill counterparts, but it’s really the difference in “trail feel” that sets the two apart.


DOwnhill casing (DH)

As the name implies, Maxxis’ Downhill casing tires are designed for extreme use in all gravity applications from downhill racing to bike park riding to free riding to long travel e-bikes. A Maxxis Downhill tire is made with two layers of our durable 60 TPI casing material along with a large butyl rubber insert that extends from each bead into the sidewall. The butyl insert helps prevent pinch flats, protects the rim from impacts, and provides additional sidewall stability.

Don’t get left out on the trail with a long walk home. For peace of mind pick-up a replacement hanger and pop it in your backpack or tool pouch.

The UDH  protects your derailleur against chain jams by pivoting back and out of the way, and slips slightly when encountering impacts. It improves shifting performance, guarantees better alignment

  • It offers unparalleled derailleur protection. And perfect alignment. Guaranteed.
  • The UDH is designed to rotate rearward in the event of impact and features the ability to “re-rail” the chain back onto the small cog.

Sizing

Taking into consideration height crossovers, we have created a size chart matrix that not only covers the rider’s height but incorporates your riding style too. The result is a simple way for you to best choose the bike size to fit their needs.

For example, if you are 182cm tall and prefer a bike for all-out speed, we would suggest the size K3. If you spend more time at the bike park or prefer a more agile riding style, take the size K2.

Electrophoretic Clearcoat

We listened to our customers and the message was loud and clear: They want their RAW finished bikes to continue to look amazing for longer.

Wet paint and anodizing aren’t an option. We never want to cover the pure awesomeness of the CNC machined surface. So we created an area in our new manufacturing warehouse and invested a good deal into industry-leading equipment that can offer a long-term solution. A unique and innovative surface treatment system.

Going Electric – This is NOT anodizing

After extensive studying and testing, we chose to go with Electrophoretic Clearcoat. Something you haven’t heard about before? That’s not surprising, because its use in the bike industry is unique and as far as we know, has never been done before.

This type of surface treatment is mostly used in industries whose applications have to resist mechanical strain and environmental impacts like salt. It’s also commonly used in the jewelry industry. The coating system has a hard surface and completely clear looks the same as the RAW finish.

As the name suggests, the process involves electricity and exposing the processed part to different solutions. First, the surface is cleared from aluminum oxide and other materials present in the alloy, like zinc, copper, and magnesium. Then an electrical circuit is made between electrodes and parts being processed.

When voltage is introduced to the solution, the clearcoat attaches to the surface of the parts. Finally, the parts are cleaned and placed in a low-temperature oven to remove any moisture and residue left over.

The resulting finish is durable, and impressively only a few microns in thickness. High tolerance parts like bearing races and threads are also completely unaffected by the process.

Environment-Friendly Solution

As with our in-house CNC manufacturing process, we wanted to keep our environmental impact as a high priority and as low as possible. In general, the business of surface coating involves chemicals of the worst type, and we wanted to stay with the most environmentally friendly option possible.

When it comes to green factors, electrophoretic clearcoat ticks all the boxes. As it’s a fully closed system it does not involve any heavy or toxic chemicals and all wastewater is securely stored in tanks and recycled later.

The whole treatment is done in-house, so it also gives us complete control of the processes and by-products.

True Gold

Raising the Standard

Production at our new on-site surface treatment facility is now fully operational. All CNC machined frames have the clear coat Electrophoretic lacquer applied as a standard procedure. We call this Raw Clear.

We can do colors too! Currently, we have True Gold and Storm Grey. True Gold and Storm Grey are available as an additional option and can be included on all Vikkelä frames.

Custom cut and fitted frame protection tape is also included on all colored framesets as standard (True Gold and Storm Grey). Raw Clear frames do not come with protective tape but is available at an additional cost.
