The Kona Shonky is made of chromoly steel while the Rocky Mountain Flow1 is made of aluminum.
Aluminum can be designed and constructed to be a very strong bicycle frame material. Many BMX cyclists who race, actually prefer aluminum frames over chromoly steel frames. However, most BMXers who do many tricks and jumps, realize the abuse and punishment that they'll subject their BMX bicycle frames to, and the overwhelming majority of them would much prefer the natural genuine strength of a chromoly framed bicycle.
