|Accolades:||The Force -X is Top End’s BLI NG bike. It is light, fast, and very stiff for complete transfer of power on every pedal stroke. This bike is for serious racers who have already dialed-in their position and are ready for a fixed frame, non-adjustable bike that saves weight.|
|Comments:||If you want the best of the best…get this bike with Top End Carbon wheel upgrade. If you don’t already own a Force -R or similar bike and/or you haven’t dialed-in your position, this is NOT the bike foryou. This is the best racing handcycle out there….but it’s strictly a racing bike.|

Complete the order form and supplemental measuring form using an existing handcycle as a reference for your measurements. Submit all forms to the provider of your choice and we will send a CAD drawing for you to approve via the provider.
