Updates to the 2013 line include:

Marzocchi 48mm sealed cartridge forks
 
Marzocchi 48-millimeter shiver forks are valved and sprung with the AWD rider in mind. The featured Progressive Floating Piston (PFP) System allows riders to adjust spring preload/sag, high/low speed compression, as well as rebound based on conditions and style of riding. Flange M8x25 used in front fork assembly.
      
Redesigned top and bottom triple clamps
 
The top and bottom triple clamps have been re-contoured to remove any excess material, making the end product lighter and sleeker, knocking off 220 grams.
 
Redesigned Dropout Gearboxes
 
The dropout gearboxes have been redesigned with an additional inner bearing for increased side load capacity and to promote better cooling for the brake system. The gearboxes have also been re-contoured to remove excess material, resulting in a lighter, sleeker design.

Redesigned Rear Sprocket
 
The new sprocket is a red anodized aluminum sprocket with an outer ring of steel teeth. This design lasts longer than an aluminum sprocket, and is lighter than a steel sprocket.

Front Hub Redesign
 
The proprietary front AWD hub that houses the front driving mechanism has been redesigned to take out almost 140 grams of weight, while adding an improved internal bearing for support.
 
Front and Rear Wave Brake Rotors
 
Wave brake rotors are known to improve brake-lever feel. They are made from high carbon 420 laser-cut stainless steel.
 
Billet Aluminum Gas Cap
 
A custom designed, aluminum CNC machined gas cap gives added strength and style. The cap features a laser etched CHRISTINI AWD spiral logo with a red anodized finish, and includes a one-way vent line allowing the tank to breathe while preventing fuel from splashing.
 
Fox Podium RC2 Shock on the AWD 250 and AWD 300 2-stroke models
 

The Fox Podium RC2 Shock is custom designed for the 2013 CHRISTINI AWD 250 and 300 models. It comes with an improved Dual Speed Compression (DSC), improved spring preload adjuster, externally adjustable rebound and a piggyback aluminum reservoir. The RC2 provides perfect course set-up every time.

Aluminum Exhaust with Carbon Fiber Heat Shield
 
The aluminum exhaust with a carbon fiber heat shield offers weight savings and added protection.
 
Custom Designed Radiators and Hoses
 
The Christini AWD custom radiators and hoses offer a better cooling flow and the ability to upgrade to an aftermarket fan that will keep your 2-stroke machine climbing.
