Stacked official word:
COMBINING CUTTING EDGE HYDROFORMING TECHNOLOGY WITH INPUT FROM TEAM RIDERS DAN KRUK AND THE WETHEPEOPLE TEAM, THE BATTLESHIP FRAME IS THE PERFECT MATCH FOR THE PROGRESSIVE STREET RIDER. BOASTING AN INCREDIBLY SHORT 12.7" CHAINSTAY, THICKER CNC MACHINED DROPOUTS (DESIGNED TO WORK FLAWLESSLY WITH HUB-GUARDS AND PEGS), AND A FULLY BRAKELESS DESIGN; THE BATTLESHIP IS A SUPER TOUGH, NO-NONSENSE STREET WEAPON WITH OUR MOST RESPONSIVE GEOMETRY YET.
INCLUDES LIFETIME GUARANTEE.
THE BATTLESHIP FRAME WAS OUR CHANCE TO REALLY SEE JUST HOW RESPONSIVE WE COULD MAKE A FRAME. TAKING THE ALREADY BATTLE-PROVEN HYDROFORMED TUBING FROM OUR LEGENDARY "SCORPIO FRAME", WE PAIRED IT UP WITH A TALLER 127MM HEADTUBE AND A SUPER SHORT 12.7" CHAINSTAY, RESULTING IN A FRAME THAT CAN SURVIVE JUST ABOUT ANYTHING YOU WANT TO PUT IT THROUGH.
TESTED BY DAN KRUK AND THE WTP TEAM, THE BATTLESHIP IS ONE TOUGH BEAST DESIGNED FOR THE STREETS.
The concept is from the get-go, the Battleship was meant to be the most robust, and durable frame in the lineup. You'll see a lot of unique features on the frame, that were designed specifically to help keep this frame going long after most would fail. Boasting an incredibly short 12.7" chainstay, thicker cnc machined dropouts (designed to work flawlessly with hub-guards and pegs), and a fully brakeless design; the battleship is a super tough, no-nonsense street weapon with our most responsive geometry yet.
Dan Kruk's word:
The Battleship frame is the most dialled frame I've ever ridden. From the 12.7" chainstay to the 75.5 headtube, this thing was designed to take all the crankflips and pull-up bars you can throw at it. It is so responsive that with one gust of wind you can hard 720 a flat rail and land in manual to 180 every try. This frame will let you jump down El Toro every day till you were 87 years old and it still wouldn't break.
When WETHEPEOPLE approached me about doing a colorway I couldn't be anymore stoked. I really wanted to do a colour no one had really seen before or just something super different. The Konfetti came out better than expected and matched up perfect with my 90's themed graphics from Eben Fischer. I was born in the 90's and really am into all of the graphic design they were doing back then so it just made sense to put all that on to a frame I was really stoked on as well.

Headtube extras: We took the battle-proven hydroformed tubing from our legendary "Scorpio frame", to create a larger contact/weld area to the headtube. Paired up with a taller 127mm headtube, this not only creates an incredibly strong and stiff front end, but also reduces the need for vast amounts of headset spacers for a much cleaner look.
Chain stay extras: The Battleship frame was our chance to really see just how responsive we could make a BMX frame. We shortened up the chainstays to 12.7" (slammed), which gives you a much shorter wheelbase, and in return helping with spins and making the bike easier to throw around. Despite this super short back end, the frame still accommodates a 2.45"+ tire and a 28t sprocket.
tubing extras: When deciding on tubing, we wanted to increase the thickness of the tubing in all the areas where there is the most stress, even if we had never had issues before, we wanted this thing bombproof. The Battleship toptube is much thicker at the seatube junction, and the downtube is much thicker at the headtube, both critical stress areas. This greatly improves the strength of the frame, and ensures that there are no possible "weak spots" for the frame to fail.
Bottom Bracket extras: The increased bottom bracket 11.9" height not only helps keep your sprocket out of the way on crooked and crank arm grinds, but also contributes to the “snappy’ and “responsive” feel of the frame.
Drop out extras: The dropouts on the Battleship are 6mm thick and CNC machined out of 4130 chromoly, and then heat treated for extra strength. To combat a lot of issues that street frames traditionally suffered from, we use a special dropout shape on the Battleship that is designed to give ample room for hubguards and line up perfectly with pegs, even when at the slammed length of 12.7". If that's too short, you can also run your wheel one half-link longer at 13", and not have to worry about your pegs or guard not having adequate contact with the dropouts.
