The Darkwave is not only 100% built out of 4130 chromoly, but it also features Sunday’s signature dent-resistant wave down tube to giveriders a little extra peace of mind when things don’t go according to plan. Itstays looking clean with refined details like an integrated seat clamp, tapered stays, and integrated chain tensioners. Removable brake hardware and gyro tabs are also available when you need them and disappear when you don’t.
Broc’s preference in geometry gave the Darkwave a 75.25°
head tube angle for keeping the front end responsive, and a slammed 13.25”
chainstay combined with a 9.25” standover to give it the proper balance of pop
All this makes the Darkwave an affordable and versatile
signature frame that’s designed to handle Broc’s 4 foot high bunnyhops, massive
drops, and all the tech combos in between.

Wave Down Tube:
Down tube dents are common with the competitor’s frames and
they significantly weaken the front end of your bike. The double-butted, 1.45″
diameter down-tube feature Sunday’s proven Wave shaping to fight denting
against contact made from a rail, ledge, coping and whatever else happens to
get thrown at it.
Butted Seat Tube & Miter Cut Top Tube:
The seat tube is where all three triangles of the frame meet
and it is crucial to keep this junction strong.
Tapered Chain & Seat Stays:
Both chain and seat stays taper to provide a refined and
clean look to the frame while still providing strength. They are both angled on
the inside for improved chain clearance and weight savings.
Hollow Dropouts with Chain Tensioners:
Hollow 8mm wide dropouts are as light as a solid 5mm
dropout, but over twice as strong. There is a small internal chain tensioner to
hold the wheel in position and to simplify wheel removal.
