Kids, teens and young adults dominate this small-wheeled area of cycling. BMX (Bicycle Motor X-cross) bicycles generally use 20-inch wheels, very robust, rigid frames and low-slung dimensions. Performance and strength are considered more important than weight saving, as these bikes need to withstand some big manoeuvrers.
BMX bicycles are generally broken down into the categories of dirt jumping, street, freestyle, and race. Dirt jumping BMXs often use a rear brake only, coupled with wide tyres and large tread blocks for strong traction in the dirt. The areas of street and freestyle overlap to a certain degree. Both these bikes usually employ front and rear brakes, but a rear brake only, is not at all uncommon. Given that BMX frames are so stiff and strong, they provide very little give, so wide, large air volume tyres are used to dampen the shock where possible.
Race-specific BMXs are vastly different, and one area of this discipline where weight is considered important. BMX racing revolves around very quick acceleration and hard sprinting out of the saddle, so these bikes are centred on maintaining great speed and momentum until the finish line.
