Welcome to Federal

Boyd’s officially on Federal and he whipped up some serious heat for his Welcome video.

Odyssey & Sunday at Woodward

Tom Dugan, Broc Raiford, Justin Spriet, and Gary Young headed to Woodward with Sunday riders Jake Seeley and Alec Siemon for a week of ripping ramps and plazas and chillin’ with rad campers and staff. The boys took full advantage of the world-class facilities camp has to offer and came back with five minutes of killer footage…. Huge thanks to Woodward for taking such good care of us and to everybody we chilled with out there! We gotta make it back for sure…

Travis Hughes
“It’s Chill”

Don’t let the title fool you – the video is not chill. Travis may be just about the chillest dude there is, but put him on a bike and he becomes a determined, fearless, and practically unstoppable maniac who’s sole focus is pushing his riding to the next level. Filming for more than three years, Travis got to be as picky as he wanted with this one, and the time and work he put in shows. Press play and watch this guy CRUSH it!

Adam Banton

2019 Stampy Fork Test

20 Years of 41-Thermal

As part of our mission to make the best BMX forks possible, we continue to refine the 41-Thermal® process at all stages of manufacturing. Each step in the process is held under strict scrutiny, and we continue to examine the strength and fatigue testing methods used to evaluate our designs.

Stampy Test Goes Above and Beyond the Industry Standard

  • Much higher load than industry standard EN tests
  • Load is applied in the correct direction
  • Proper mounting rig to replicate real world use
  • Test doesn’t stop until the fork fails

In the previous round of Stampy fork tests we blew the industry standard EN tests for bicycle forks out of the water, and yet we still couldn’t break our own fork. In fact, we had to give up after running the fork for 2,000,000 cycles and with the machine operating at its ultimate limit.

So, in order to push the tests and our forks even harder we created an updated rig design that would let us supply much more force than the last time around. With this test we doubled up the cylinders that are applying the load and ramped the force up by 25%, going from 4000 Newtons to 5000 Newtons. That’s just over half a ton! (1124 lbf per cycle). Even so, at half a million cycles we started to wonder how long our forks were going to last, and since our competitor’s forks had already been taken to failure, we decided to ramp up the load on our forks to 6000 Newtons (1349 lbf), 50% higher than the previous tests, and after over 650,000 cycles, we were finally able to break them.

It is important to note that the 41-Thermal forks not only outperformed every other model that we tested by a huge margin, but that they did so while being lighter than most of the other forks too. This is direct evidence that proper design, engineering and manufacturing are much more important factors than simply always making the part heavier in hopes of making it stronger.

Unmatched and Legendary Lifetime Warranty

  • Best in class replacement program
  • Warranty against bending, cracking, and breaking
  • No fine print to limit coverage to basic manufacturing defects

When you see how hard we push to make the best forks; to make them better and better every chance we get, it is easy to understand why our legendary lifetime warranty against bending and breaking is still around 20 years after we first introduced it. And when you see the contrast between our forks and our competitors you can also quickly see why most of their warranties have long since been quietly canceled or modified with complicated terms and conditions that usually limit the warranty to manufacturing defects alone.
