The BMX wheel and its history
Whoever wants to understand BMX and the underlying sport should first take a look at the history of its origins. The BMX bike as we know it today was developed in its basic principles already in the 60s of the last century in America. At that time, many young people were enthusiastic fans of motocross, but even far too young to drive motorized machines – and usually not in possession of sufficient money to purchase such. But the youngsters were creative and took small drivers with 20-inch Rädern, which were equipped with special handlebars and the classic motocross tires. They began to perform their first tricks and stunts, which have become classics of the scene to this day. The sport, which is fully advertised as Bicycle Moto-Cross, quickly spread in Europe, too.
Üover the years, the räs became increasingly more robust and stable, but the basic design has remained, which consists of a very high handlebar and the familiar 20-inch rädern. This is of course what we are looking for in our popular Haro BMX! Take a look at our BMX Shop and convince yourself of the fantastic quality and unique lifestyle that goes along with the 20 inch BMX. Of course, we also have BMX Cruiser with 24 inch for you in our assortment.
BMX Shop Online – put on quality
Hardly any other bike is as stressed as the classic BMX bike. That's why in our BMX Shop we attach great importance to quality and a stable workmanship – because you should enjoy your Professional BMX as long as possible. Despite the most modern technologies and processing techniques, we of course maintain the basics of the standard BMX: The 20-inch Räder spokes, which have been used since the beginning of the sport, are preserved, as are the 36 and 48 steel spokes, which are crossed 3 or 4 times. For all parts we use special materials that are particularly robust and resistant. Every BMX bike in our BMX Shop is with innovative hubs and axles that will withstand heavy use. Of course we try to keep the weight low, so that the adventurous tricks and stunts succeed despite quality bike. A classic BMX bike has no gears, of course, so we have decided not to use them in the BMX Shop Online. So the brake is all the more important: We primarily use the especially resistant U-brake, which belongs to the rim brakes, but is one of the most resistant and effective models here. Due to the particularly light and rather cautious design, this brake is excellently suited for BMX sports, especially as it is parallel to the resistance and particularly light.
We know the demands you make on a BMX bike – and we have them for our Haro BMX
