-In 2022, new BMX <E.T. 40> is released-

This time, in 2022, 40 years after <E.T.> was first shown, Kuwahara is releasing <E.T.40>, a BMX.

There is a poster made in 1982, and we have reproduced it here as a tribute to it.

Two types of BMXs were available in 1982: <E.T. Original> and <E.T. Replica>. The main difference between the two models was in the parts specifications; both had high-tensile frames.

 

However, the <E.T.40> to be released this time is a frame made of 4130 chromoly, which is widely used in bicycle competition frames. In addition, the new <E.T.40> utilizes many reliable parts, such as high quality sealed bearing hubs and Dia-Compe brakes, based on the experience of selling old-school BMX for more than 10 years.

 

Of course, the <E.T.> logo, which is the sign of an official Universal item, is also perfectly displayed.
