2020 Fly Sion Overview

The Sion is designed to be Fly's fast and flowy park machine, just the way we like it!

A: Top Tube Length: 21" - Learn what size is right for you here.

This is a long toptube. Perfect for tall riders.

Perfect for riders that are between 5'10" to 6'2"

B: Chain Stay Length: 13.4” - Learn About Chain Stays Here

This is a long chainstay. Longer Chain-stays give you more control when doing manuals and bunny hops. The long chainstay is good for control on trails and flowing park.

C: Head Tube Angle: 75° - Learn About Head Tube Angles Here

Steep head tube angles make the bike "snappy" meaning more responsive to fast turns.

A less steep head tube gives you more control.

D: Seat Tube Angle: 71°

E: Bottom Bracket Height: 11.75"

F: Stand over height: 9.25"

This is a taller standover.

A tall standover gives you more stability and will make bars, and t-bogs easier.

2020 Fly Sion Price

I think $720 is a lot of money for a bmx bike. The Sion is best for a rider who knows that they will stick to bmx for a long time. Even though it is expensive, it will last a long time.

2020 Fly Sion Quality

Lots of aftermarket parts show the true quality of the 2020 Sion. Expect this bike to last a long time because it is built with some good parts.

Fly Tractor Sprocket: An aftermarket sprocket that is thicker than most.

Volcano ST Stem: The brand new Volcano ST stem comes with a shorter 48mm reach and a taller, more street-friendly 35mm rise, to make your ride not only ultra-responsive but also amazing looking too.

Highlights
