Based around the Embryo, this Frame will feature a 75 degree HT, 11.625″ BB, 13.25″ slammed CS and double gussets to keep the front end nice and strong.

Fiend‘s much anticipated 2013 drop of new product is now available. There is a whole bunch of new stuff for this year, most notably the new Ty Morrow Topload Stem which is available in Black, Polished, Bronze and Purple. The Stem is CNC machined from 6061 aluminum and features an internally machined body and top cap for reduced weight, solid 6mm chromoly bolts for strength and laser etched Fiend logos with a 48mm reach and 28.5mm bar rise.
New colorways for the Frames, with Ty Morrow’s extremly popular signature Frame now coming in Matt Raw and the team issue Embryo Frame available in Mint Green, both colors are now available for the Embryo Fork too if you wanted to match them up.
JJ Palmere’s signature Black Cloud Seat has had a bit of an update with a new stitched logo on the back. Still using the denim cover and is now available in either Black or Grey. The amount of Bleached Fiend Seats I’ve seen now is crazy…
The guys at Fiend have also been pushing their range of softgoods and accessories which is always refreshing to see. Ty, Garrett and JJ all have their own signature Hats and Sunglasses, each with unique and individualistic styling based on their personal tastes. Cool to see them try and do something different instead of just putting a fiend logo on a hat out a catalog. These all look particularly sick, I’m really feeling Ty’s Hat with the leather detailing and the trip logo under the brim.
All of these products should be available now from Fiend dealers worldwide. For more info on these products and where you can pick them up be sure to hit up FiendBMX.com today.
