6061 Aluminium Arms,
Designed for less flex and more braking power,
Low profile spring and adjusters for better chain clearance on chain stay set-ups,
Machined Aluminium Alone straddle cable hanger.

Straddle cable and knarp included.
Although we’re in a world where website updates are dictated by social media links it’s been a while so we should really let you know what we have been up to!
Team wise Ribs and Callum have been getting about lately….
Ribs riding street around London and at the recent Boardmasters Festival with our boss man Hitcher (no photos appeared online of a nose pick on the Boardmasters ramp from him which is staggering!). Although, if you see Ribs hitting the streets up town around London say hello to the salty old dog.
Sean has been ripping down under riding in the Sydney area by the looks of it living the life down there!
Callum had a run at the recent NASS festival despite no practice!! but the lad has been busy ramp bulinding and having fun at Corby skate park of late. As you can see from his instagram posts:
Lastly, product wise or products are out there too!… The Roxbury frames and Sean Pointing Signature V2 SPorks forks have been particularly strong!.. on a par with anything out there!. The investment cast dropouts making the fork so strong. These things don’t fail. Good to put your trust in. Check out the product range here: alonebmx.co.uk/products
We have been working on a new U Brake called the “Skid Row” brake… this will be out later this year too. Something a bit different considering most are brakeless these days but we’re working on some cool new brakeless style stuff too.
That’s it for now!… Follow us on all the social media to keep up!
The annual Rom Jam went down this past weekend… Our man Tom “Ribs” Milham was there along with our boss James Hitchcox. Ribs was sending some big airs and clicking turndowns with a hangover like a trooper and has a few clips in this Ride BMX UK edit of the day. Always an honour for us to support this event at a historic location again this year. Hopefully we are planning a team get together soon before summer is out so we can have a pedal, a beer and talk shit as always.
In product news our new shipment is due in any day now!… so hit up your local shop that supports BMX to get some of our newness for your ride. Support the shops and brands that support your scene.
The team are out hitting various spots on all sides of the globe!.. why not give us a follow on instagram? @alonebmx to see what they’re up to!… We want to see your Alone products out there shredding it with you too so don’t forget to tag us!! we could give it a share.
Our current product range is also available globally and we’re working on some awesome new products for later this year so keep an eye out!… Spring is finally here so get out and ride!! Thanks for your support! Alone BMX 2004-16 and beyond… BMX – fly out fun to vert flips, ledge nibbles or crazy rails. Salty comments approved!
As with everyone in the BMX community today we all pay our respects to Dave Mirra.
From the kid in the Dorkin videos that was way too good to the global superstar he became, his importance to BMX is on a par with anyone and the outpouring of love and respect today proves this. Thank you Dave.

This is what BMX is all about, hopping in the van with no plans other than to eventually reach a destination and ride every spot you pass. Ride shotgun with Zeal Distribution’s in-house brand ‘Alone’, as the crew head south from Stourbridge to Newquay. Along the way they are keeping the skateparks alive with both the bangers and beers flowing all day, and keeping cosy at night in a (not so watertight) trailer…
