BMX Handlebar Buyers Guide


BMX Handlebar Buyers Guide

There are many handebars out there - most of which look pretty similar but there are subtle differences between each set. Handlebars make a massive difference to the way your bike feels and reponds and this guide helps you understand all of the differences between each set. Read on to find out what are the best bars for you whether you are on a budget or simply just want something bigger!

BMX Handlears Explained

Handlebar Geometry

Get to know your Bars!

Handlebars have many bends and angles, all of which are described using the terms below. When choosing your bars there are two main types; regular 2 piece and 4-piece. The construction can vary too from regular straight guage tubing to butted tubing meaning the tubing is thicker on the bends where strength is needed - more on that in the below recommendations...

A. RISE: This is the height of the handlebars. This measurement is taken from the middle of the clamping area to the middle of the grip area.

B. UPSWEEP: The angle of which the bars bend upwards on the grip area of the bars with 0° being flat

C. WIDTH: This is measured in a straight line from the end of each side of the handlebar in inches.

D. BACKSWEEP: The angle which the grip area of the bars bend back towards the rider. Typically somewhere around 12° is normal. The lesser the degree the straighter the sweep.

 

All these measurements and angles are listed in all of the product descriptions of each set of bars we sell - making choosing your perfect bars that much easier!
