Customise your freestyle BMX for a unique look
We carry BMX forks in many different colours and styles. So, you will be able to customise your stunt BMX bike and make it unique from the other riders.
Improve the balance with a freestyle BMX fork
The fork is one of the main parts on a stunt BMX bike. The fork determines how easy it will be to find the balance point when doing nose wheelies, stands and other BMX tricks on the front wheel. If the balance point comes too fast and you keep flipping over.
The fork offset refers to the position of the dropout and can determine whether the front wheel is placed more forward or backward. This changes the overall wheelbase length and has an impact on the way your bike reacts.
- Minimal or no offset your provides you with super responsivity and quicker steering and is great for technical tricks and flatland.
- Maximum offset gives you more control and a slower reacting bike, which is good for big jumps, speed and vert.
Strengthen your riding style with a new BMX fork
When you ride a stunt BMX aka freestyle bmx bike and do a lot of flatland tricks, the fork is highly exposed to impacts. Most fork snaps happen when you are training and learning new BMX tricks. Jumping down stairs or from a box to flat ground are popular BMX tricks, but it can make your BMX fork snap. Price and quality often go hand in hand. Consider the quality, if you do many BMX tricks where you are landing on flat ground.
It is important to have solid equipment for freestyle. Forks for stunt BMX bikes are typically made from steel or chrome steel 4130. Both of these kinds of steel are chosen to extend the lifetime of your BMX fork.
