A freestyle BMX sprocket is an essential component of a BMX bike's drivetrain system. Sprockets are the round, toothed gears that attach to the cranks and are connected to the rear wheel via a chain. They play a crucial role in determining the gear ratio, which affects the bike's speed and acceleration.

A 25-tooth sprocket is a popular choice among freestyle BMX riders due to its versatility. It strikes a balance between speed and torque, making it suitable for various riding styles and terrain types. The number "25" indicates the number of teeth on the sprocket.

The size of the sprocket greatly influences how the bike performs. A 25-tooth one, provides great torque and acceleration, making it ideal for ramps, jumps, and tricks that require quick bursts of power. It allows riders to generate the necessary momentum for high-flying maneuvers and explosive bursts of speed.

Furthermore, a 25-tooth sprocket is often preferred by riders who engage in street riding and technical tricks. The slightly smaller size compared to larger sprockets offers a balance between speed and maneuverability. It enables riders to navigate tight spaces, execute precise maneuvers, and maintain control during complex tricks.

The choice of sprocket size is subjective and depends on individual rider preferences, riding style, and the specific demands of the riding environment. Ultimately, it comes down to personal preference and the desired performance characteristics for a particular riding style.

In summary, a 25-tooth freestyle BMX sprocket strikes a balance between speed and torque, making it a versatile choice for various freestyle riding styles. Its size allows for quick acceleration and manoeuvrability, enabling riders to perform complex tricks, navigate tight spaces, and generate the necessary momentum for high-flying manoeuvres.

As a BMX rider, you know that every part of your bike matters. And when it comes to the drivetrain system, the BMX sprocket (or sometimes referred to as a chainring) is a crucial component. In this article, we'll explore what BMX sprockets are, how they work, and why they're so important to your BMX bike and riding style.

What Are BMX Sprockets?

BMX sprockets are circular metal discs that attach to your bike's cranks and are connected to the chain. They feature teeth that mesh with the links of the chain, allowing you to transfer power from your legs to the rear wheel and move forward.

The Importance of Sprocket Size

BMX sprockets come in various sizes, which are measured by the number of teeth on the sprocket. The size of the sprocket is a critical factor in determining the gear ratio of your bike, which affects both your speed and acceleration.

Most freestyle BMX bikes come with a 9-tooth driver on the rear wheel, which means that smaller sprockets (with fewer teeth) provide a lower gear ratio. This makes it easier to accelerate and perform tricks. On the other hand, larger sprockets (with more teeth) provide a higher gear ratio, enabling riders to achieve higher speeds.

Additional Features

Some BMX sprockets come with added features to provide extra protection or customization. For instance, a sprocket guard can protect the teeth from damage during grinds or other stunts. Meanwhile, unique designs or colors can help you personalize your bike and stand out from the crowd.

Making Your Choice

Ultimately, the choice of BMX sprocket will depend on your specific needs and preferences, as well as the type of riding you plan to do. Some riders prioritize speed and may choose a larger sprocket, while others may prefer a smaller sprocket to help them perform stunts more easily and provide more ground clearance.

Conclusion

BMX sprockets are a vital part of your bike's drivetrain system, enabling you to transfer power to the rear wheel and move forward. When choosing a sprocket, consider the size and any additional features that may be important to you. With the right sprocket, you can enhance your riding experience and take your BMX skills to the next level.

A core part of your bike, the Wheels get you from A to B and need to be the right set for your Bike. We carry a wide variety of wheels available in a range of brands, colours, and sizes, including a complete list of custom parts to build up the perfect set of wheels for your BMX bike. A ripper BMX wheel is judged by a few things:

  • Toughness: BMX riding is a super rough sport, so the wheel needs to be able to handle the beatin' and bangin' on the dirt jumps, streets and skateparks. In most cases, the big brands like Odyssey, Eclat, Federal, etc are producing some of the strongest wheels in the game. 
  • Weight: The bike is going to feel a heck of a lot nicer with a set of lightweight wheels on there, making tailwhips and barspins rip around with ease. Alternatively, if you are looking for a BMX street riding workhorse that will take all the beatings you can lash out and will stick to it's line, maybe a heavier/stronger wheel is more for you.
  • The Rim: The rim material and build affects the wheel's strength and weight. BMX Rims are either welded or pinned - with welded being the stronger of the two. They come in a variety of widths and depths, but a good rule of thumb is to opt for a popular rim/brand as this is most likely what most riders trust.
  • Hubs: The BMX Hub connects the wheel to the bike and gives you a smooth and efficient ride. You want a strong and trustworthy BMX hubba for a good BMX wheel. Whether you choose a BMX freecoaster or a BMX Cassette Hub, choosing a quality brand with strong internals will make a massive difference to your shredding. If you are unsure as to what direction you want to go with your hubs - Contact Us!
  • Spokes - Most BMX freestyle wheels nowadays use a 36 spoke design with either a 3 cross or 4 cross spoke pattern. Spokes can sometimes be double butted to save weight and increase strength. Check the specs tab on the wheels for a rundown of what spokes are used. 

So, in a nutshell, a good BMX wheel should be strong, lightweight, and tough, with a reliable hub. The big brands tend to do it best, but if you have any questions at all just drop us a line on 1300 LUX BMX or shoot us an email at help@luxbmx.com.au.
