The new Framed Defendant BMX bike enters a new era of riding by incorporating the new 22" wheel and tire size. This creates a larger and longer frame that rides higher off the ground. Thanks to the 22" wheels, the bike travels further with every pedal rotation which means more speed! The contact surface between the tire and the pavement is also increased which yields better traction and stability. The Defendant is a great entry level point into BMX for riders looking for the latest technologies without breaking the bank.
