FRAMES SO SPECIAL. THERE’S FAR MORE TO THIS

FRAME THAN A BEAUTIFUL CUSTOM FINISH.

Like an iconic race car, the once limited edition Wavelength is now here to stay — an instant classic that’s already a collector’s bike for many. BMX racers worldwide connected with its stunning good looks and its deep racing soul. So why change? Because technology evolves and innovation reinvigorates the soul.  And so we’re evolving again — with the Wavelength 2.o.

FEATURES

BUILT FROM THE SAME PROPRIETARY TUBE SET AND WITH THE SAME GEOMETRY AS OUR RACE PROVEN ARC FRAME, THE WAVELENGTH 2.0 SIMPLY EXCHANGES THE STRAIGHT LINES OF THE ARC’S PIERCING TOP TUBE FOR A SWEEPING NEW STYLE. AVAILABLE IN EXPERT XL AND LARGER 20′ AND 24″ FRAMES, THE WL 2.0 GETS THE ARC c2’s MORE ROBUST SEAT AND CHAIN STAYS PLUS THE LATEST BOTTOM BRACKET MILESTONE IN OUR NEW T47 BB SHELL THAT WILL DELIVER A SMOOTHER, STIFFER RIDE, PUTTING YOU AND YOUR BIKE ON THE SAME WAVELENGTH!

PROPRIETARY HYDROFORMED TUBING

Our Wavelength hydroformed tube sets have been crafted into one of the sleekest, most powerful silhouettes on the race track. Everything about its design  is right, at once classic and cutting edge — a modern geometry and lower center of gravity that is in perfect alignment with today’s advanced rider skills and more technical tracks. Internally tapered tube walls are thicker at the weld junctions and thinner in the middle. Together with its massive downtube, large diameter flared seat tube, and arcing top tube this is one serious race machine. Yes it does take longer to build and costs more than the standard round tube alloy frames out there, but as the only U.S. built hydroformed BMX race frame out there,  it rides as good as it looks.

DIME STACKED AMERICAN WELDING

This is truly a dying art form in the bike world, but at Daylight we conttinue to demand hand built perfection. No ground smooth welds or thick paint to hide our process as our thin ceramic coatings reveal one precision dime stacked weld after another. Even more critical is what’s beneath those welds — less than 1mm of gap between tube junctions for unmatched strength that also builds unwavering confidence.

MACHINED VERTICAL DROP-OUT SYSTEM

Experience the Wavelength’s vertical sliding drop-outs on the track and in your workshop and you’ll never go back to a horizontal slot rear drop-out. Other frames responded with fixed rear axles and idler spring arms to solve disc brake mount, axle creep and drive-train alignment issues, but even those with some wheel base adjustment simply don’t give you much compared to the width of our large “drop-slot”  — without the dangling idler and the excess chain. Our integrated disc caliper mount, stainless (or optional titanium) chain ring style slider bolts and “drop-saver” frame washers, and integrated titanium 4mm tensioner screws make the ARC the most precise in BMX for achieving perfect chain alignment/tension and the easiest to remove and reinstall a rear wheel with no readjustment necessary. The definition of beautiful form and superior function!

CERAMIC PAINTED FRAME PARTS

You’ve seen it certainly and if you’re made it to this point we’re assuming it’s caught your eye. Our admirers call it the Daylight Look — our clean two-color ceramic paint design where the color of the frame parts are painted to match the frame graphics or integrated into a more complex frame/bike design concept. In addition to our machined sliding vertical drop-outs, both our machined quick release seat clamp and premium tapered sealed beairng headset also come ceramic painted with every frame.

INTEGRATED BOTTOM BRACKET

While most BMX race bikes made today still run the same old plays, with an offense built around the standard BSA threaded 68mm bottom bracket shell, we decided to go wide — really wide with our proprietary BB92 shell to fit ouroversized hydrformed down tube and low and wide chain stays for maximum stiffness and power transfer. Its precision machined bearing bores come pressed with premium bearings and CNC machined bearing covers, race ready for any standard 24mm spindle crankset.

QUICK RELEASE SEAT CLAMP

When is a seat clamp more than a seat clamp? When it’s the perfect detail atop your Daylight frame — bridging front and rear frame triangles with the graphics color and a touch of the primary frame color on the adjuster knob. At 34.9mm for our oversized seat tube and CNC machined with a large but light thumb lever, it holds tight but let’s go easy for changing to your Moonbeam extended post between rounds.

PREMIUM HEAD BADGE

There’s nothing that embodies the quality, craftsmanship, and championship pedigree of our frames and bikes more than our Daylight Head Badge — the crowning touch to any Daylight BMX Flying Machine. We could have followed the trend towards modern and minimal — that would have been easy — but instead we embraced the heritage of the bicycle with an artisan head badge our customers rushed to embrace. And for many — that embossed, antique silver badge of distinction is the most important part of their Daylight. As it should be.

EVERY DAYLIGHT FRAME IS CUSTOM FINISHED. EVERY SINGLE ONE.

We offer the full Daylight Spectrum of color choices as well as some spectacular surface finishes and design concepts that takes custom bike building to unimaginable heights. These specialty finishes sampled below can be mixed and matched with any of our standard or metallic ceramic paint colors to create a frame or bike as unique as you.

COMPLETELY CUSTOM

If you’ve decided you want something completely custom, just check the completely custom box when you place your order and we’ll contact you to schedule a custom finish phone call.

RACE PROVEN AROUND THE GLOBE

Led by our Daylight World Pro Team as well as a roster of top amateurs across North America and around the world, we are a race company through and through — bound together by our shared vision for winning and loving the Daylight ride.

SIZING – FIND THE PERFECT FIT

There are a lot of variables aside from height that go into choosing the perfect size frame such as riding style, weight, aggressiveness, etc. Because of this, there is a height range for each size on our charts. The key metric to actually fitting a frame is the reach. This is the horizontal distance from the center of the bottom bracket to the center top of the head tube. Top tube length, seat angle, and other dimensions have little to do with fit since you won’t be sitting down. All of the geomentry dimensions besides reach have to do with performance and ride quality, not rider size. As you compare frames for you or your child, keep the reach measurement foremost in your mind. Below is a full chart of the Daylight size offering.
