You need to be able to maneuver your BMX bike easily, which means choosing your handlebars carefully is essential. The wrong type of handlebars can, at best, make your ride uncomfortable and at worst, cause injury. Handlebars for BMX bikes have flat, rather than curved, handles for better grip and maneuvering. Handlebar widths can range from around 22.5” to 30”. Wider is generally thought better for tricks and pro-level riding, though handlebars that are 27”or more may be uncomfortable for casual riding. They’re typically made of steel or aluminum. If you ride professionally, then make sure to get handlebars that are comfortable for constant practice as some have a comfort level that’s more suitable for amateur riders.
