Throdwn Adds Aluminum and a Heavy-Hitter Team
Earlier this year, Wisconsin-based BMX startup, Throdwn, launched a fresh line of titanium BMX Racing frames and cranks. The line is sold exclusively through Dan’s Comp, and if you were walking the pits at the Grands, you would have seen more than a few heading to staging. After the race, News caught up with Throdwn honcho, Charlie Jahnke, to hear more about the new steed. He also dropped a hefty scoop on us, with news that Jim Buchanan’s star-studded team would be suiting up in the Throdwn colors for the new season.
Here’s what he told us:
Throughout Grands weekend, visitors to the Throdwn pit got a first-look at our new aluminum frame. Now, we’re stoked to show it off to BMX News readers.
Available in 13 sizes (listed below), Throdwn’s proprietary tubing set is meticulously prepared, fabricated and finished by Yess BMX in Canada, a shop known the world-over for quality and consistency.
Our aluminum line is offered in three matte finishes, black, white and gray, with eight color-complimenting decal choices to set the vibe just the way you like it.
Available in January through Dan’s Comp, Throdwn will be THE frame to beat in 2017. And that ain’t just talk…
FACTORY THRODWN 2017
A legit product needs a legit team backing up on raceday what the marketing guys say during the week. Throdwn is honored to announce that Jim Buchanan and his team of 20 stars will be the brand-new Throdwn Factory Team.
