"The all-carbon swingarm doubles as the exhaust silencer". That thing looks crazy. Wonder how well it would handle a nice crash... You know.. Since it's geared towards the FMX crowd..

Kevin, Would you ride that for fmx? I have seen those guys land to flat and that swing arm does not look like it would take many of those. They bottom suspension all the time.

They make supercar frames from carbon fiber that are made to handle extreme horsepower and torque. I wonder if it is a practical material for freestyle motocross

If the CF is thick enough it is strong as for the weight. Why do you think F1 car tubs are made that way.
