Going on 14 years of being pro and 5 (Destroyer, Death Wish, Ends and Destroyer Reissue) signature frames for Volume Bikes, Jason Enns paid his dues 10 fold. The man has seen every trend come and go in riding, bikes, and anything else in bmx. Jason is one rider that has progressed more than ever over the years and his bikes have always progressed right along with him. His 4th signature frame, called the Cerberus will be coming out the end of this month and really wanted to show it all off with a proper bike check and questions. Be sure to check out all of the Cerberus’ specs HERE. All pics by Joey Cobbs

How’s your Summer been? You’re fully healed and back riding 100% now?
Summer has been hot as always. Im back riding and the knee is getting better but still have a lot of work to do before I’m back 100%. Doc says my knee will continue to be healing anywhere from 12 to 18 months. I’m just shy of 6 months post-op now, so I’m stoked to be riding already.
Your new signature frame, the Cerberus is about to drop. How’d you come up with that name?
Names are always the hardest thing. I’ve always enjoyed the imagery associated with Cerberus (mythical 3 headed dog that guards the gates to hell) and thought it could be a cool theme to run with.
Any special features on the frame you wanna talk about or really wanted to have?
I really like the built in chain tensioners, if you run four pegs it makes rear wheel adjustment too easy and your wheel will never shift. Its got a real steep headtube angle for quick steering response and also a little bit wider bottom bracket shell to make more room to run as big of tire as you want in the rear with plenty of clearance.
You especially have seen the frame progression in the last 14 years of being a pro and having signature frames, what do you foresee being the “next big thing”?
It seems to be coming full circle. Back to tall stand over heights and not trying to overly slim everything down. I like to see things getting back to basics again. Good to see a lot less money bumps and gimmicks.
I know Mastroni and you are working on a new promo for the frame too, how’s that coming along?
Its coming, we got a few clips so far. Its def gonna have a more chill vibe, I’m still having a bit of trouble with the knee on street with hops and impacts. We’re focusing on fun clips, chill clips, pools, tranny and anything that’s low impact for the knee.
You have anything else planned for the rest of the year?
Get healthy and back to 100% and go hard on my full part for the upcoming Volume video
