Why an Armored Build is Important for BMX
Flexed-out components slowing you down?
We've heard it all before. When it comes to your racing ability, an armored build plays a crucial part.
Toughness is a natural byproduct of our Oversized™ Technology. By adding size to specific areas of components, we have increased pedaling and steering stiffness and added toughness and strength. Larger surfaces also increase the ability of a component ability to spread impact loads.

Wouldn't it be a real shame if all that effort you put into training went down the drain because of a component failure on the big day?
What’s the point in loading up your bike with all that energy if the parts can’t take it? Remember with Oversized components, you aren't taking on more weight to get that extra size. We've just moved material from areas that don't experience stress and moved it to areas that do.
Don't let flexed-out components let you down. Take that better chance of winning with an armored build! BIG = FAST
"The Box One M35 Crankset and the X5 fork make my bike feel solid and make me feel that I am in control!"
-Gunner Clay, Box Level Up Rider
"For the past 6 years, I have had the amazing opportunity to run and represent Box Components. On my race bike I prefer to run the X5 forks which have proven to be the stiffest and most reliable race fork I have ever endured. Alongside my Box fork setup, I choose to run the 31.8mm bars attached with the Box One front load stem for the highest comfort front end that favors my riding style and helps me take on the field of riders."
-Spencer Cole, Box Rider
"When I started with Box, I was a lot younger and smaller. Now that I have grown and got stronger, I have parts to grow with me. Thankfully, the Oversized parts are there for that. They make the big difference when you're big enough to put the power down."
-Nathan Kitchen, Hex Lab Box Factory Team
