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 fiber. On top of that, carbon fiber 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 a few pounds.
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 33 pounds lighter than the bike Pagès was riding before, which was around 220 pounds.

It looks like Pagès is more than ready to defend his Red Bull X-Fighters title in Madrid 2017 and if you want to be part of that, simply head over to RedBullXFighters.com/tickets and get yours before it's too late and Las Ventas is sold out.
