Joris was ready to continue his wining ways from 2018, as he lined up for the first main event if 2019. When the gate dropped, Joris put the power down and took the hole shot into turn #1.

Box’s oversized technology is a philosophy of design and engineering. Its goal is to reduce energy loss to deformation or friction. The results are enhanced control, better acceleration, and increased speed. Featuring beefy hollow-forged crank arms and a massive 30-millimeter Praxis™ M-30 spindle cold-forged from 7075 aluminum and precision ground to extremely tight tolerances, the Box One™ M30-M Crankset is the absolute stiffest junior BMX crankset available today. A precision CNC-machined Chromoly/Alloy self-extracting crank bolt system makes installation and removal a snap.
Box One Cranks utilize an oversized spindle (35mm on the M35 units and 30mm on the M30-M cranks). With the use of an OT Spindle, we have virtually eliminated flex, increased strength, while maintaining a light rigid product. These key traits translate into enhanced performance.
