Kelsey Dixon over at Aggro Racing has recently been seen riding a DK Pro V2 frame, and team manager Big Stu Dixon has sent us this test/review and pics. I personally have always been a big fan of DK, back from the days when Neal Wood and Robbie Miranda rode for them, I remember riding DK Pro XXL frames and they were super nice!! A few of the locals at MKBMX are riding them now and love them too.
With Caroline Buchanon taking the Elite Woman Supercross win at Manchester last month to add to her 2013 World title we thought it was time to check the hype on the DK frames, we managed to get hold of a Pro frame and asked Aggro Racing’s Kelsey Dixon to do a small test for us, Kelsey currently rides in championship female class.
The frame went together really well,it was nice to be able to just do a straight change of parts from the old frame to the DK, everything fitted just right and looked good too, the rear end on the DK is slightly longer so we added another link to the chain but that was it.

We took the bike to Royston Rockets EA regional, a track I like and know, after a roll round and making sure it was all set up right I tried a couple of manuals, which felt good, cornering felt good too, responsive when it needed to be, on to gates and after a couple I chucked myself into a few gates with the older faster guys, it felt stiff out of the gate with no flex at all. – Kelsey Dixon
The frame itself is available in black, white or green although at the moment stocks in the UK are pretty limited.
Made from SPF 7005 aluminum tubing (10% lighter than hydro formed frames) and available with tensioner blocks to take both a 20mm and 3/8 axles size (although Kelsey runs a 15mm axle on hers). The frames aren’t the lightest about with the Pro XL weighing in around 3lb 8oz but the quality is there to see, integrated tensioners are included in that weight along with the tensioner blocks.
The V2 is available in the expert XL/Pro/XL/XXL/XXXL & Cruiser in the regular tt sizes 20.25/20.5/21/21.5/22 & 21.75 respectively.
All in all the bike looks good, handles well and I’m amazed there aren’t more around in the UK… although I think that’s just a matter of time, as check out CUSTOM RIDERS for all the info HERE.
