The HARO Blackout XL is Haro's top of the line complete bike made for serious BMX Racing. The only upgrade after this would be a Haro Citizen Carbon frame but there's no complete bike available from Haro that features the carbon frame. That Blackout though. It's not the cheapest complete bike out there but the parts it comes with explains why. The CLiQ Citizen carbon fork up front is light and strong and shows minimal flex. Combined with the a tapered head tube, 3D dropouts and the Blackout PTC (Power Transfer Center), the Blackout frame is serious about transforming your power into straight speed. Out of the gate the CLiQ Weaponz 2 piece cranks mounted to the sealed bearing CLiQ BB86 press fit bottom bracket doesn't let you skip a beat. We see top racers ride this machine and for good reason. The bike does not come with pedals which is a miss, but knowing most racers use their own type of Clipless pedals why would you pay for something you are not going to use anyway?

Since when are you a Proper Bike Co sponsored rider? Shanice Silva Cruz: I started riding for Proper mid August and am very happy with their support! I was quickly used to my new bike and within half an hour I was back to doing my regular tricks like a tailwhip to tap!
What size frame are you currently on? Shanice Silva Cruz: I am riding a 20.7” Tecmatik frame, I’m not very tall and I like the way shorter bikes spin!
Does a new bike give you some extra motivation to learn tricks? Shanice Silva Cruz: Absolutely! My riding sessions are with two other riders that I normally didn’t ride with in the past, combined with a new bike and the fact that I don’t have to be worried my bike will
