BMX Bikes Buyers Guide

BMX bikes came out of the USA in the 70s and they're still all the rage. In fact, BMX biking is now an Olympic sport, so they've never been more popular. BMX bikes are built to handle demanding riders, so they're strong, light and long-lasting.

BMX racing bikes

BMX racing is fast and furious. If you want to speed over hills or sand dunes and go off-road, then this is the bike you need. Because BMX racing bikes usually have aluminium frames, they're lighter and more responsive - this means you'll be in control when you're hurtling over the ground.

BMX freestyle bikes

If you prefer tricks to racing, then you'll need a BMX freestyle bike. Get one of these and those daring jumps, spins and stunts won't seem so hard.

Whether you're in a skate park or just using walls, benches and other obstacles, BMX freestyle bikes have strong wheels and rising handlebars that can withstand the impact of landing after a big jump. They also have built-in stunt pegs for hopping around and balancing.
