The Ruption Vector is a great beginners bike with great spec like the tri - moly frame, chromoly bars, cranks and fully sealed cassette, hubs and BB to name a few.
3 piece cranks are excellent because they are not only far lighter than the one piece but they are easier to assemble and last allot longer. These have many advantages such as ease of maintenance due to simple Allen key fittings being used, ease of parts sourcing if you were to ever break any part of these rather than having to replace the whole lot and they look super smart too!
Chromoly is used by almost every professional bmx rider of today, this is because it is a high grade of steel that is not only stronger, but also allot lighter too. This sort of material is much more guaranteed against bends or breaks than any other style of material you will find in the complete bike market. The Motion features chromoly cranks, and handlebars.
Sealed bearings are the best you can have for moving parts, This is because unlike unsealed bearings where dirt and grime can get to them, these bearings are enclosed in a push fit unit with rubber seales, this makes the bearings resistant to dirt and grime and to a point makes them waterproof too. So when it comes to fitting, parts like axles and so forth sit allot more securely on these units and they last allot longer.
This bike Uses Mid sealed bearings for the bottom braket, this means your pedaling action will be as smooth as possible yet it will last too, Oh and these are a mid size meaning they are smaller and lighter than the conventional usa Unsealed bottom brackets. This also has the integrated sealed headset bearings, this means the frame looks allot nicer and tidier and uses cartridge unit bearings that allow for better cornering and spinning of the bars and the quality is instantly noticeable over conventional headsets.
Micro gearing is great, this is because by using a special ‘cassette’ Hub on the rear wheel you can have a smaller chain wheel on the back and that allows for an even smaller one on the front, You will still have all the same pedaling efficiency but you will gain lots of improvement for your bikes performance such as weight loss due to smaller parts and a shorter chain, Smoother running because cassette hubs are more efficient, and this even helps prevent damage to your bike as there is no large chainring to bash on foreign objects anymore…
This comes with many plus points, the handle bars are made from chromoly steel for better strength when riding, the geometry is ergonomical for all the parts such as the frame and wheel base so riding is comfortable and of course so that it ride well when doing real levels of bmx riding (tricks and stunts).
