Flybikes have added a new guy to their team over in Switzerland named Alessio Tonoli! We don’t know much about him, but we would imagine he’s a real dialed rider if Fly picked him up! Expect to see more from Alessio in the future.
“Everyone in Fly is stoked to welcome Alessio Tonoli to the team! Alessio from Winterthur Switzerland, is the kind of guy that is always down for a good time, has a sick style, and loves going big and that to us is what BMX is about! Keep an eye out for him if you want to see some cool stuff!” – Flybikes
Here’s a little sponsor news for you. Flybikes have added Varo Hernandez to their line up over in Spain. Check out a few words about the news below, along with a look at his new setup. This is an interesting one since Flybikes haven’t had any flatland specific products for some time. Maybe they’re planning to bring back some of their old Suelo products in the future? That would be pretty interesting to see. Either way, it looks like they’ve added another dialed rider to the team.
“Varo Hernandez is an awesome human! He is a Madrid local, where since the 80’s there has always been a great flatlander scene with a magic level and very good vibes. Varo’s good friends with Sergio, Courage, and Tere. It’s common to see them together riding around Madrid. For that reason, Varo joining the Flybikes Family seemed like a natural fit, so… WELCOME TO THE FLY FAMILY!!” – Flybikes
It’s been so crazy seeing the younger generation progress incredibly fast. Flybikes have announced that they have added 10 year old shredder over in Spain Javitxu de la Torre to their crew! Here’s a video where Javitxu teamed up with Sergio Layos for some amazing riding at a concrete park! There’s honestly clips where we can’t even tell the difference between Sergio and Javitxu. It’s easy to see just why he was added to the team! After you watch the video, you can check out his setup an an interview over on the DIG website!
“We are very excited to welcome Javitxu de la Torre to the Flybikes family! Over the years, we’ve watched as younger and younger riders have progressed faster and faster, and it’s been incredible. But, when Sergio Layos puts your name out to be on the team, you know you’re on another level! Check out the future as Javitxu and Sergio team up for this amazing video!
Javitxu is riding the new Sierra 18″ frame, 8″ Sierra bars, 18″ Volcano fork, and Fuego 18″ tires, along with other Flybikes aftermarket parts with the aim of getting the perfect 18 inch setup. This setup was designed to look and ride just like Sergio’s personal Sierra setup!

We’re getting a double whammy from Devon Smillie today! Earlier we poste up his new USL BMX Dice video, now we get a 5 minute banger packed with clips he filmed over the course of 2020 around southern California for Flybikes! No traveling or contests, but it looks like Devon still made the most of it, stacking a ton of heavy clips for this! You already know this one is a must see!
“2020 was a year that nobody expected to turn out the way it did. The pandemic changed up everyone’s world, some more than others. Instead of traveling the world, riding in contests and filming at crazy spots in cities all over like normal, Devon Smillie stayed home in California. Despite all the negatives, there was a silver lining; schools were closed, normally busy and unrideable spots were cleared out and the sessions with the locals were still happening! 2020 was less than ideal, but Devon managed to make the most of it and stack a ton of fire clips staying close to home! Enjoy!

Check out the new Courage Adams signature Flat Raw Savanna 2 frame!
With the way this year has been, it’s no surprise that we’ve seen a pretty sporadic release in products this year from brands. There’s been crazy supply issues, delays with manufacturers, shipping container shortages and overloaded delivery services. But, it’s made it so new products are a little more unexpected.
Flybikes have begun releasing some of their new 2021 products, and it looks like Courage Adams signature Savanna 2 frame from Flybikes has been released in this new Flat Raw color! The Savanna 2 frame is made from full 4130 Japanese seamless chromoly tubing with a 75.5-degree head tube angle, 71-degree seat tube angle, 11.75″ bottom bracket height, 9.25″ standover height and a 13″ chainstay length. They’ve gone with new tubing specs to help reduce the weight without sacrificing strength, a CNC machined 4.45″ (113mm) tall Integrated headtube, laser cut top and downtube gussets internally and externally (double gussets), multi-butted and tapered tubing, an Investment Cast seatpost clamp, Mid bottom bracket, laser cut seat and chainstay bridges and Investment Cast dropouts with integrated chain tensioners. You can find heat-treating on this frame as well. Also note that the Savanna frame is brakeless, so there are no mounts or guides.
The Savanna 2 frame is available in 20.2″, 20.6″ and 21″ top tube lengths with Flat Raw, Gloss Black and Metallic White for color options and a weight of 5.3 lbs. The frame is available for $370.00 through BMX shops and mail-orders that carry Flybikes worldwide and online, or direct from the Flybikes Website.
