Welcome to Salt BMX
You may not know this, but SALT components are ‘The Best-Kept Secret in BMX’. Nothing is re-badged at Salt, nothing is chosen from a catalog either, in fact, Salt is designed by the same team that runs and operates WETHEPEOPLE Bikes on a daily basis. With such a pedigree background you know that Salt parts are extremely hardwearing, innovative and manufactured to the absolute highest standards.
In an industry where tastes and trends change so fast, Salt has always stayed one step ahead of the game, and our 2017 collection is a true reflection of what parts BMX riders want and need now, and in the year ahead.
To kick things off, the Comp Stem is new to our stem range; a mid-rise toploader that uses a wider 48mm faceplate and STC (Shark Tooth Clamping) but with a classic design that will look good on any bike.
2017 sees the introduction of some fresh rubber. The Tracer Tire uses a modern street inspired tread pattern and measures up at 2.35" making it our largest tire yet, perfect for big drops and absorbing impacts. We felt a need to bring a new grip into the family this year, the EX Grip is longer to fit today's wider bars. It uses a soft sticky rubber compound and a slightly thinner diameter making it feel perfect from day one. Both the Tracer Tire and the EX Grip are available in our wild Neon Yellow colorway which is bound to make you stand out from the crew.
On top of our already hugely popular Rookie line of entry-level wheels, we now offer a Rookie Cassette Wheel, using our Valon rim and a semi-sealed 9t cassette hub, bringing micro-drive gearing to an all-new lower price point. We also offer the Rookie cassette wheel as part of our Valon wheel & chainset. Combining the semi-sealed cassette wheel with a matching front wheel, as well as an alloy sprocket, chain and matching pegs for a whole new drivetrain setup on a budget.
With so much more to focus on, dive in and check out the entirely new 2017 collection from Salt BMX.
