During the pandemic, the bike industry saw a massive surge in interest, including the world of BMX. People have continued to carry that hobby over into 2021 even as pandemic restrictions have begun to relax around the nation. This means there is going to be a lot of continued interest in freestyle and BMX bikes available on the market this year.
If you’re in the market for a bike, here’s a list of some of the trending BMX bikes in 2021 that may interest you:
- Sunday Primer 16: This is classified as an ideal starter bike for young people by the good folks at bicycle.com, as it’s a bike that comes at a relatively low price point but will get your kids into the world of BMX. It has two wheel sizes (16- and 18-inch) for skatepark and trail riders.
- Redline MX: The Redline MX series is more appropriate for riders of all ages, from kids to adults. It also comes at an affordable price point for people who are interested in getting started with BMX riding, and comes in six different sizes. The bike was modified for the 2021 lineup to include many of the features riders loved from Redline’s more upscale Proline series.
- Taj Fairdale: This bike offers tremendous versatility, and comes with larger wheels. It’s named after Taj Mihelich, who has been a big name in BMX and freestyle for some time now. At 27.5 inches, these oversized wheels are greater for durability, utility and some stunting capabilities. It’s best suited for riders between 5’8” and 6’3”.
- Racing So Cal Flyer 24: The large wheels of this bike (26- and 29-inch varieties available) make them highly stable for some more extreme stunts. There are some drawbacks to consider, notably that they’re not necessarily ideal for riders under 5’4”. They’re also not particularly easy to fit into a compact car. They’re very much designed for urban lifestyles, including people who want to take them on subway trains.
- WeThePeople Audio 22: This is a bike that’s been recommended for people who are coming back from injuries. The 22-inch bike is a great choice for someone who hasn’t been on a bike for a while or who has suffered an injury and does not want to get to a larger wheel quite yet. They’re easier on the body (especially when ridden frequently), and ideal for riders between 5’8” and 6’2”.
- Sunday Soundwave Special: This bike is a bit more expensive than some of the others on this list, but it’s heralded as an extremely complete option for BMX enthusiasts who are serious about the hobby. It weighs in at 23.5 lbs without brakes (which is how the majority of BMX enthusiasts would use it).
