One of the biggest in the BMX industry and it all started with a custom made sprocket: BSD Forever!

It all began back in the summer of 1991 when a group of BMX friends started making videos of the trips they went on and the jams they took part in. From the first video Stress Kings to Steel Rods and Sleezy Rider the BSD name was born. At their core BSD’s ethos was and still is about hanging out with friends, travelling the world, riding bikes and having a laugh. It is also about making the best quality BMX products out there, while still having a lot of fun in the process...

In 1998 the first BSD product came out - it was a custom 44t, 10mm thick beast of a sprocket. Grant Smith, owner of BSD trained as a mechanical design engineer and decided to start applying what he knew to BMX parts. Jump forward to 2005 and more BSD products were added to their line. Quality and innovation has always been key to what they do. In 2005 the Jersey Barrier hubguard arrived - the very first push on plastic hubguard to be developed, now an industry standard used by many BMX companies out there.

Today, BSD offers the full range of premium BMX parts to build your custom bike. To sum up what BSD is now: an award-winning, rider owned BMX brand, designed by riders for riders with an indestructible line of products and a world-famous team of talented riders.
