I know it may be bit to soon to be looking at new race frames, but what the hell, who doesnt love looking at bling new frames! Intense have already released their 2012 Podium frames. Look below for the Intense Podium Press Release. These Frames are available from the U.K Distributor Snap BMX
“The new Podium Limited frames feature the same race-proven geometry
and ride as the Race and Stinger frames, but with a lower
weight,10/20-millimeter axle compatibility, smooth double-pass welds and
new paint and graphics.
The weight loss comes from new butting profiles in the tube sets.
Each tube was meticulously engineered to be lighter weight, yet retain
strength and rigidity where needed. A Pro XL Limited frame weighs in at
only 3.53 pounds, a weight loss of a half a pound. Each Limited frame
includes two sets of chain tensioner Blocks for the proprietary rear
dropouts. The forged and precision CNC-machined Blocks work with either
standard 10-millimeter axle hubs or the stiffer Sinz Elite 20-millimeter
through-axle iHubs*. Use the 10-millimeter blocks and run any standard
wheel set or, for better gate snaps, a more powerful and efficient pull
down the first straight and better handling, use the 20-millimeter
Blocks with the Sinz Elite 20-millimeter iHub wheels.
Double-pass welds give each joint a smooth finish while boosting weld strength.Production was limited (hence the name) to 200 frames with the new Flying Circus-inspired chrome
and red paint scheme with only 8 arriving in the UK. When they’re gone, they’re gone.”
