To celebrate the Red Bull Empire Of Dirt returning for 2012, we have teamed up with Kye Forte and Red Bull to produce an extremely limited edition of the United x Red Bull KL40 complete bikes, and for the first time ever you can get your hands on a bike with officially endorsed Red Bull Empire Of Dirt graphics.

We used the brand new 2013 KL40 model and then tied in Red Bull Empire Of Dirt branding, by using grey sidewall United tyres, colour matched grips, anodized red rims and seat clamp which all finish this bike off with a look way beyond it’s price tag. Available from the end of April 2012 in the UK only.

The previous Red Bull Empire Of Dirt event in 2008 was feted by pro riders as the most progressive event the BMX world had seen, so this is sure to be a welcome return.

Kye Forte has been busy designing an amazing, challenging course and is excited for this year’s event which will take BMX to the next level.

“Empire in my opinion not only shows what is possible on a BMX in way of riding & course design to the general public as well as a core BMX fan. The oversized features on the course & mix of terrain MX size jumps & snowboard type hits is obviously dangerous & very entertaining, which will appeal to a wider audience, as well as the BMX scene” – Kye Forte
