Empire Cycles MX6 EVO and VX8 frames ... ...

Following on from our last post we thought we would explain a bit more about our current range of MX6EVO and VX8 frames. Did you know that approximately 40% of each frame set is made from recycled aluminium? Did you know that the rear end is a one piece monocoque, cast here in the UK along with the seat tower which gives an incredible stiffness to weight ratio? Did you know that each cast area is subjected to real time X-ray to ensure that sub surface defects can be detected and not passed to the end customer? Did you know each frame headstock is machined from one piece billet aluminium? Did you know that all of the frame including the aluminium for the sections to be welded and machined are supplied from a UK mill? Did you know that we print our graphics in house and use a local applicator for the coating we apply, the coating is hard wearing so you don’t even need helitape! So there you have it, full UK sourcing and manufacture with a hand made frame for £1399 on the MX6EVO & £1799 on the VX8! #lessimportingandlessco2 #weverecycledforyears #AP1wastheoriginal
