Watch Tom Pagès take his new FMX bike for a spin

What is a small or even standard FMX modification here and there for most of the riders, brings Tom Pagès to the next level. While the frame remains aluminium and some components are titanium, the subframe, such as the grab holds at the seat, has been replaced with carbon fibre. On top of that carbon fibre materials replaced the regular ones wherever it was possible.

Even the brake lever and shift lever were lightened, the brake discs and other parts have been drilled with holes to further reduce weight. The bike's forks have been replaced with the latest air forks to save another kilo.

It was Pagès himself who came up with the idea as he considered the problem of how to generate enough power for the radical and unique tricks he performs – and those he'd like to develop. The bike is now around 15 kilograms lighter than the bike Tom was riding before, which was around 100 kilos.
