Solid and reliable, if you will.

After all, Radio Bikes is owned by no other than WeThePeople, so you know quality matters. (A lot!)

What’s also cool about Radio is its heavy focus on racing. But their freestyle frame line is also strong.

Note: If you’re more or of an all-around rider, I suggest you opt for Nemesis.


Best Radio BMX Frames

Note: Frames are listed in no particular order. (The 1st one is not necessarily better than the 5th one.)

1. Fox (My Fav!)

radio fox frame
In 2018, the Radio Bikes Fox Frame was introduced as Brian Fox’ signature frame.

This frame is designed to be an all-around frame with its geometry and has an interesting aspect to the geo that changes with the top tube lengths.

The frame is available in top tube lengths of 20.6” and 21.1”.

The geometry of this frame changes proportionally between these two top tube lengths to give taller and shorter riders the same benefits.

It is something that not many frames feature and is a pretty cool concept to see!

Fox specs:

  • Top Tube Length – 20.6”, 21.1”
  • Head Tube – 75°
  • Seat Tube Angle – 71°
  • ChainStay Length – 12.8” – 13.5”
  • Standover – 9”
  • BB Height – 11.6”
  • Weight – 5 lbs / 20.6”, 5.2lbs / 21.1”

2. S6

According to the Radio Bikes website, The S6 Frame from Radio Bikes is a frame built for the “modern-day skatepark shredder.” This park frame has a medium-short rear end length at 12.75” slammed and an 8” standover height.

A lower bottom bracket height combined with these makes for a technical frame that is also stable “while blasting transitions.”

There are external gussets on both the top and bottom tube and removable brake mounts with holes drilled for gyro tabs.

Brake hardware sells separately, and there is a lifetime guarantee on the S6 frame.

S6 specs:

  • Top Tube Length – 20.4”, 20.8”
  • Head Tube – 75°
  • Seat Tube Angle – 71°
  • ChainStay Length – 12.75” – 13.3”
  • Standover – 8”
  • BB Height – 11.6”
  • Weight – 4.9 lbs / 20.8”

3. Nemesis

Here is the Nemesis frame from Radio Bikes. This frame is an all-around frame with somewhat aggressive geometry.

The responsive geometry has a 75.5-degree head tube angle and a short rear end with a wide range at 12.7”-13.3”.

This is combined with a moderately high standover and lower bottom bracket height.

The Nemesis has top and bottom tube external gussets and removable brake hardware (buy separately).

The frame is also built with straight gauge tubing that is fully heat treated and it carries a lifetime guarantee.

If you’re looking for a reliable street frame, Nemesis is it.

Nemesis specs:

  • Top Tube Length – 20.75”, 21”
  • Head Tube – 75.5°
  • Seat Tube Angle – 71°
  • ChainStay Length – 12.7” – 13.3”
  • Standover – 9.25”
  • BB Height – 11.6”
  • Weight – 5.2 lbs / 21”

4. Quartz Pro

The Quartz Pro Frame from Radio Bikes is a BMX race frame that is a two-time world championship-winning frame, according to their website.

This frame is an alloy frame that uses Radio’s Helium frame as its base with some changes.

The frame is designed to be fully disc brake compatible and utilizes a new hydroformed 6061-T6 tubing which Radio calls their Paradigm tubing.

This change allows the frame to be considerably lighter than their Helium Frame. Radio says that Quartz frame is “the lightest and sleekest machine on the track.”

Quartz Pro specs:

  • Top Tube Length – 20.5”
  • Head Tube – 74°
  • Seat Tube Angle – 71°
  • ChainStay Length – 13.9”
  • Seat Tube Length – 231 mm
  • Seatpost Size – 27.2 mm
  • BB Height – 11.6”
  • Weight – 3.64 lbs

5. Solar Pro

Here is the Radio Bikes Solar Pro BMX race frame.

This is a carbon fiber frame that uses Torayca carbon and a mono construction which means that it is one piece.

The Radio website says the Solar Pro frame is “laboratory tested & proven to be insanely stiff.”

This frame has internal cable routing and weighs in at just 2.56 pounds.

Solar Pro specs:

  • Top Tube Length – 20.75”
  • Head Tube – 74.5°
  • Seat Tube Angle – 71°
  • ChainStay Length – 13.9”
  • Seat Tube Length – 238 mm
  • Seatpost Size – 27.2 mm
  • BB Height – 11.6”
