Fade Profile Ltd Edition

Check Availability
A limited edition Fade build with matte-black powder-coat finish, chrome Profile cranks & sprocket, chrome decals, silver Pike DJ & silver Chromag finishing kit. 

Sometimes we have an idea for a bike that we've got to build someday. A bike that we know will be awesome - if only we can come up with an excuse to do it. That's where our Limited Edition series comes from; bikes that are unique, that you can't get anywhere else or ever again.

Profile Racing is a brand that has etched its name into the history of BMX since day one. Whatever generation you're from, you grew up wanting a set of Profile's legendary US-made cranks. Now we have the Fade: a dirt-jump frame with a growing reputation of its own and finally we can build a bike around the Profile crank. The choice of finish is obvious: chrome. On both the crank arms and the sprocket. That sets the scene for the rest of the bike: a matte black frame with chrome decals. Pike DJ in silver, Hope Pro 4 hubs in silver ano running black Fortus 30 rims, and Chromag finishing kit in a carefully selected black & silver combination.

The Profile build is coming in matte black with chrome decals, and as a limited edition, there are no custom options. The whole thing is a no-brainer just as it is. The first 10 customers will get them.

  • The Fade frame is available in one size only. It's designed as a compact dirt jump & pump-track bike but reach is a little bit longer than most, so it's perfect if you're a mountain biker accustomed to modern, long enduro bikes.

  • We often get asked these questions so we've put together some quick answers for you. More information is available on our Tech Pages, Shipping and Warranty Pages.

    How long does it take to build a bike?
    Normally around a week for a standard bike. If you have custom options it can take longer but we make this clear in your custom build quote. Things can be a little slower at busy times, but we keep you posted on progress.

    Can I make changes to the build kit?
    Yes. All our bikes are built to order so we’re happy to customise for you. The best thing to do is contact us and we’ll produce a custom build quote for you.

    How much does shipping cost?
    Shipping costs vary depending on what you order and where you live. Take a look at our Shipping Page for more information.

    The size & colour I want is out of stock. Can I preorder?
    If it's out of stock now, chances are it's due back in soon. If you'd like to reserve one your can place a preorder. Contact us.
