Find the right Race BMX Bars
Race BMX bike handlebars are usually higher than the BMX bars of Freestyle bikes.
Handlebars for race BMX bikes are available in different models and sizes. Both the height and the width of the Race BMX bike bars are measured in inches. Most BMX bars are 8 to 10 inches high and 28 to 30 inches wide.
The race BMX handlebars are made of either aluminium or heavier steel types. Most BMX bars for freestyle bikes are made of steel, while most BMX handlebars for race bikes are made of aluminium to keep the bike as light as possible.
Should I choose a 2-piece or 4-piece BMX bar?
There are basically two ways BMX bars are constructed, and you guessed it - 2-piece or 4-piece handlebars.
2-piece BMX bike handlebars are made of 2 pieces of either steel or aluminium tubes. This is usually a lighter construction. The 2-piece bar is usually the strongest construction because it only has two weldings.
4-piece handlebars are made of 4 pieces of either steel or aluminium tubes. This is often a bit heavier than a 2-piece bar, but it provides a unique design to the race BMX bike, which some riders prioritise.
So if your main goal is to get the weight of your bike as low as possible, you should probably go with a 2-piece BMX bar. If you want to give your bike a more retro and stylish look, the 4-piece bars would be your weapon of choice.
