2021 Subrosa Letum Overview

Street riding can beat up a bike, so we built the Letum with a 100% chromoly frame, fork, and bars for durability. We’ve added a sprocket guard, 4 pegs with hub guards, and a freecoaster hub, so you’re ready to ride any spot you find. The Letum is also full of aftermarket products from The Shadow Conspiracy and Rant.

2021 Subrosa Letum Price

The Subrosa Letum is a lot like the Fiend Type R. However the Letum is about $200 cheaper. This bike only costs $529 and I love that it is so close the the $500 price point.

My parents bought me my first BMX bike in 2011 and it changed my life. This bike has taken me all over the world and introduced me to cool places and cooler people. My goal is to help get 1,000,000 people into BMX so they can experience the joy and freedom that comes from a progression based sport.
