The Federal BBS sprocket has to be one of our favourite sprocket designs of recent years. The spoke style pattern may have been done before, but the Federal design really nailed it. After the original BBS sprocket came a solid version with the design machined in, and now we have a super strong bashguard setup.
Federal Bikes was launched by Seventies Distribution in the year 2000. It’s certainly been through a few different chapters as the landscape of the BMX industry down in Hastings has changed, but Federal continues to be, without question, one of the UK’s strongest BMX brands. Their team over the years has been consistently strong – from international big dogs like Davey Watson, Jared Washington, Stevie Churchill, Bruno Hoffmann and Steven Hamilton, to homegrown heroes such as Dan Lacey, Mark Love and Dan Cox.
“The Federal BBS Guard Sprocket has to be one of the best looking bashguard sprockets out there…”
Federal has always maintained its status as a honourable brand to represent, which has translated into the success of its products, both in the UK and further afield. Federal has earned global respect.
