Kriss Kyle is the type of rider who likes to ride everything, bowls, street, dirt, the lot. His signature Freedom frame is designed to perform well on all terrain, this frame combines the stability of a low 11.5" BB, the responsiveness of a 75° headangle and the versatility of a short rear end. To create a stiffer rear triangle we've utilized an invest cast wishbone and invest cast seatstay bridge, great for sideways landings!!

INVEST CAST SEATCLAMP
The invest cast seatclamp is brazed onto the frame so there's no need for a separate clamp. Also the slot cut beneath the seatclamp gives more clamping power less torque on the bolt. Note the new seatstay bridge too.
INVEST CAST DROPOUTS
Because the dropout is cast as one piece it's much stronger than a plate welded to a tube. 7mm thick to provide good support for your axle, and the small shape has been designed for grinding meaning there's no overhang to catch on ledges or rails, also the dropout is heat treated before welding making it extra tough. And finally there;s an integrated chain tensioner bolts inside.
INVEST CAST WISHBONE
We've used a new heat treated invest cast wishbone on the Freedom frame. This combined with the new seatstay bridge offers a stronger and stiffer rear end, especially good for sideways landings.
