SE Bikes, one of the most respected (some say "legendary") bicycle manufacturers, has brought out its new line of bikes, bike frames, parts and accessories. The new line is the "raddest, baddest, lightest SE bikes to date," they claim. The company has been around since the start of the BMX racing scene, so they probably know what they're talking about.
The elite racing series are at the top of the SE Bike line, the ones that put the company on the map and helped establish its legacy in the industry. The entire series is built around the lightweight but tough 6066 Alloy frame, making these bikes lighter than most bikes in their class. The bikes are meticulously engineered and mercilessly tested, so you know you are getting high quality equipment. The parts and accessories are also the finest in the industry, so you can be sure the bikes are race-ready as soon as you get on the seat.
PK Ripper Team XLP
The PK Ripper Team XLP features tapered fork legs, Truvativ cranks and the Tioga D-Spyder pivotal seat. The 6066 Alloy frame is incredibly light but strong. The bike tips the scales at an unbelievable 20.75 pounds.
PK Ripper Team
The old reliable PK Ripper Team is still feather-light at 21.5 pounds, and it's still ready to race when you are. This solid performer has had a number of features changed and added to keep it on top of SE Bikes' elite racing line.
This is a deceptively stylish bike that looks good and is really fast. Built around the same 6066 Alloy frame as the rest of the Ripper series, this is the bike that can win you races. The entire bike weighs only 16.4 pounds.
This is the BMX for kids. Now Junior can fantasize about upgrading to a PK Ripper Team while he wins races on his Ripper Jr.
Another wicked bike to get started on, the Mini Ripper delivers performance in a tiny, 15-pound bundle.
24" Floval Flyer
Even with its impressive 24-inch tires, the 22.3-pound Floval Flyer sill weighs less than most 20-inch bikes. This bike can definitely take you higher on that next jump.
SE Bikes was started by Scot Breithaupt in the 70s, when his advertising company Scot Enterprises sponsored BMX races and bicycle safety seminars. In 1977 Breithaupt collaborated with one of the hottest BMX riders at that time, Perry Kramer (the "PK" in "PK Ripper"), to build the PK Ripper line of BMX bikes. During the first few years after the PK Ripper was introduced, the company couldn't make them fast enough and was back-ordered by around 2,000 bikes. To this day the PK Ripper is one of the most popular bikes being produced. Breithaupt also created the Floval Flyer's Floval tube frame. Floval stands for "flat oval," the underlying technology that makes the Floval Flyer the high jumper that it is.
Besides the elite racers, SE Bikes builds mid-level bikes -- the Ripper, 24-inch SoCal Flyer, and the 16-inch Li'l Ripper. The entry-level bikes include the various Bronco models and the popular Soda Pop series. Heavy Hitter, Hoodrich and Everyday make up the line of dirt bikes. The best freestyle bikes include Wildman and Quadrangle.
