DMR Wrath: MTB or BMX?

10 10 2012

DMR Bikes have been putting out dirt jumping-oriented mountain bikes for some time now. Based out of the UK, their irreverent, BMX-ish mentality has garnered them a considerable following.

That following extends outside of the MTB community as well.

I’ve seen a number of builds featuring DMR’s distinctive Supermoto tires and their Vault platform pedal is popular among MTBers and BMXers alike.

With the introduction of their 2013 lineup, that line DMR has been walking between MTB and BMX is getting thinner still. Sure, they still have full-on MTBs on offer but what got my attention is the new DMR Wrath.

According to DMR, the Wrath has “BMX race-inspired geometry” that is “at home on the pump-track, park and dirt jumps.”

It certainly has a BMX look to it!

Available in both 24″ and 26″ sizes, it’s built around a cro-mo frame and features a 3-piece cro-mo crank, plastic pedals, Supermoto tires, amongst other good things.

Looks like a really solid build.

About the only pure MTB feature to it is the disc brakes.

Could this be the start of more cross-over style bikes from DMR?

Time will tell.

But I’m liking this first effort!

Ironic!
I got back into BMX through DMR when I bought a DMR transition MTB.
I sold that to buy a Faction 22″ then a Sunday Model C which now sports DMR white wall supermoto tyres.
Why DMR don’t go the whole hog and do a proper BMX at both 25 and 26 puzzles me.
