Building a custom Pro level race bike can be a difficult task while trying to stay within a budget. With the 2021 Chase Element Expert, they did all the hard work for you.
Chase wanted to offer bikes that our pro riders could race right out of the box, while taking into consideration that the cost I needs to be realist for riders who want the best for a great price.
With the new Chase Element, they have done just that!
The 2021 Element offers you the best of both worlds.
Utilizing the same geometry as their Championship winning ACT and RSP race frames, the Element frame features Hydroformed and butted tubing, a new intergraded chain tensioner/disc brake mounting system, and a press fit Bottom Bracket.
Parts features include Shimano Hyro Disc Brake, Answer Carbon Fiber Fork, Tioga fastr X tires, Sun Ringle Rims, a 31.8 Bar/Stem combo, as well as parts from Elevn and Insight.
