LEARN MORE ABOUT WHAT MAKES DAYLIGHT FRAMES SO SPECIAL. THERE IS FAR MORE TO THIS FRAME THAN A BEAUTIFUL CUSTOM FINISH.

FRAMES FORGED FROM RACING

ARC

20″ and 24″

The USA built ARC is the most advanced aluminum frame ever made — a real BMX superbike! From its modular, sliding vertical drop-outs and InterLoc™ tubing intersections to its beautifully hydroformed tubes, these custom finished frames are purpose built to win races and look amazing doing it!

 

LANDSLIDE

26″

The ultimate 26″ cruiser, the Landslide is our largest version of our ARC frame but still an all-out racing machine — same hydroformed tubing, sliding vertical drop-outs, and features, up-sized for big-wheel masters. You won’t find a more serious 26″ race cruiser anywhere.

 

 

WAVELENGTH

20″ and 24″

Based on proven ARC geometry, our Wavelength 2.0 coming this fall ’23 ( Expert XL and larger frames) gets the ARC c2’s new rear stays plus a new T47 bottom bracket. With its internally threaded bearings for our 92mm shell, the T47 works with every crank spindle for a bigger, stiffer and smoother ride that will put you and your bike on the same Wavelength!

TIMELINE

26″

Make time fly on our JPX machine (jump/pump/4X), the ultimate dirt jumper made from our same race proven BMX tubes but built aorund a 100mm suspension fork and 142mm rear hub. So you choose — hit the jumps on a single speed or shift into high speed with the Timeline’s sliding 12mm thru axle drop-out + derailleur hanger and blast the dual!

THE MOST ADVANCED BMX FRAME EVER CREATED

BB92 InterLoc™

The ultra-wide BB92 is not only a stiffer crank interface, it also creates a larger intersection for our oversized down tube, tapered seat tube, and extra wide chain stays.

InterLoc™ Construction

InterLoc refers to Daylight's large, overlapped tubing intersections. Every joint on our frames has been designed for maximum tube contact which creates a stiffer, stronger frame.

Headtube InterLoc™

The tapered IS head-tube is matched with perfectly fitted hydroformed tubes to create an exceedingly strong, monocoque style front end.

Hydroform Tubes

ARC frames are made with hydroformed tubes that are specially shaped for strength along the tube as well as for the best interface with our head tube, seat tube, and bottom bracket.

Tapered Seat Tube

The ARC seat tube on the larger, pro series models is tapered for a larger connection area to the bottom bracket to improve stiffness and strength.

Rectangular Stays

Daylight uses rectangular seat and chain stays to improve torsional strength and increase the contact area with the seat tube, bottom bracket, and drop-outs.

Modular, Sliding Drop-outs

The drop-outs can be adjusted to the perfect chain length and then locked so the wheel can be removed and re-mounted without the need for re-adjustment. Additionally, the non-drive drop-out has what is arguably the best integrated disc caliper mount for a BMX race bike.

Yes, that’s a bold claim in a world of carbon fiber and integration. It’s not unreasonable when you consider the thought that went into every tube, weld, and feature on the Daylight BMX frame and how it translates into performance. Corben Sharrah could make a very good case for it as well. We think our InterLoc™ construction, purpose-driven hydroformed tubing, BB92 bottom bracket, and slotted, modular dropouts, however, say it all on the race track.

INTERLOC™ CONSTRUCTION

Every tubing intersection on our frames is designed with our Interloc™ Construction philosophy. The key features are the connection of large tube profiles along with substantial tubing overlap which creates an exceptionally stiff, strong intersection. This is very visible at the head tube, but if you look at the seat-tube, top tube, seat stay joint, you will also see the extensive overlap of the tubes. It’s also visible at our drop-outs where the joints are angled to lengthen the contact area. The real heart of the bike, however, is the BB92 intersection. Here, the extra wide bottom bracket allows for full contact with our oversized down tube, flared and tapered seat tube, and the wide placement of the chain stays. Each and every element of the frame was designed for maximum contact, creating stiff, strong world class performance.

 

BB92 – THE HEART OF THE BEAST

There is absolutely no place on a bike more important than the bottom bracket. It’s were the force and power of the rider is transmitted through the frame to generate speed and acceleration. Our ultra-wide BB92 increases stiffness in two ways. First, by putting the widely spaced bearings directly into the frame for improved spindle integration, and second, with our InterLoc™ Construction. The wide, CNC machined bottom bracket is the heart of the most important intersection of tubes on the frame. Our oversized down tube converges with the bottom bracket and flared, tapered seat tube which is then connected to the extra wide chain stays to create a solid, incredibly reinforced, inter-locking convergence of tubes. Performance to the core.

MODULAR SLIDING DROP-OUTS

Wheel position and chain tension are extremely important. Being able to securely control these two variables is key. That’s why we designed our modular drop-outs. They not only allow the axle position to slide back and forth using an Allen head micro-adjustment screw, they also use offset bolts to lock the system in place. The angled positioning of the lock-bolts forces the slider to cantilever when force goes into the axle which prevents the system from slipping under power. Once you find your perfect position, you can take your wheel on and off without needing to readjust.

CUSTOM TUBING

HT

TAPERED HEAD-TUBE

IS 42/52

INTERLOC™ FRONT END

The CNC tapered head tube strengthens the transition from frame to fork and also increases the contact area with the top and down tubes to create an extremely strong monocoque style front end.

ST

FLARED SEAT-TUBE

30.9mm ID

INTERLOC™ BB

The seat tube on our pro BMX frames has a flared, tapered base that increases the contact area at the bottom bracket shell to form an incredibly stiff, strong intersection with the BB, down tube, and chain stays. creating unrivaled stiffness and strength.

HF

HYDROFORMED

TUBING

ENGINEERED STRENGTH

Hydroforming allows us to put the strength where it's needed most with variable wall thicknesses, transitioning shapes, and expanding diameters. Our Interloc™ Construction maximizes contact and overlap at the tubing intersections.

SHOP FOR FRAMES

Daylight frames come in a full range of 20″ wheel (Mini to Pro 3X) and 24″ cruiser wheel (Junior to Pro 3X) sizes, as well as our Landslide 26″ wheel race cruiser. We also offer a Timeline 26″ dirt jumper in both small and medium/large sizes, and will soon be rolling out our all-new 29″ big wheel cruiser, the Mondo! Each frame is welded from premium 6061-T6 aluminum hydroformed tubing and CNC machined parts, and comes with an integrated sealed headset, sealed integrated bottom bracket, quick-release machined seat clamp, sliding vertical drop-outs with integrated disc brake mount, and internal brake cable routing. Frames are stocked ready to paint in your choice of colors and come standard with our 100% ceramic painted two-color finish (no decals or stickers are used on our frames).
