Kids' BMX Bikes
BMX bikes are off-road bicycles with small wheels and no derailleur to increase speed and enhance skills. The kids' BMX bike is built with the same geometry as an adult BMX bike and is often made of steel or aluminum. Whether you're looking for a BMX bike for your child aged 3 to 17 years, at Primeau Vélo, you'll find the right bike for your little one. Explore our extensive selection of BMX bikes from the best brands in the industry, such as Haro, Radio, and GT!
Question 1: How to Determine the Right Size for a BMX Bike?
There's no exact BMX bike size for a specific age, so here are our recommendations:
|Age Range||Height (cm)||BMX Size|
|3 to 5 years||95 - 115||12”|
|5 to 7 years||115 - 126||14”|
|7 to 9 years||126 - 138||16”|
|9 to 11 years||138 - 149||18”|
|10 years and older||145 and above||20”|
At What Age Can My Child Start BMX?
Actually, there's no specific age to start BMX. However, the child should have a strong foundation before getting into this discipline. We recommend introducing BMX at around the age of 5 years, as this is when the child will have good balance control. To ensure safety, it's important to outfit your child with proper protective gear, including a helmet, body protection (knee and elbow pads), and gloves.

What Are the Different Styles of BMX?
There are several ways to practice BMX, but what bike to choose for each style? For street, a more robust bike with a short frame is recommended to withstand impacts during jumps. For race, opt for a lightweight aluminum bike with a longer frame for better control. Freestyle requires a bike with impeccable maneuverability and a smaller frame to assist you in your tricks.
