3 Best & Tallest BMX Bars (2022)

I bring you a collection of the tallest BMX bars because of the great demand from my IG followers.

Unfortunately, there aren’t that many high-rise bars available on the market.

However, the ones that are WILL do you well.

BSD, S&M and Shadow took the leap and released bars that are above 10″.

If you’re rocking a 10″ bar and want to go higher, try adding some spacers first just to see how it feels.

It’s a pretty big gap from 10″ to 11″, but you can transition with BSD’s High As Hell!



Best High-Rise BMX Bars

1. BSD High As Hell

If you’d like to go high but unsure yet if switching to an 11″ bar would be a good idea than I highly recommend picking BSD’s High As Hell bar.

This is the tallest handlebar BSD ever released and it can be a nice transition from 10″ to 11″. (But there’s a good chance you’ll stick with it.)

It is a heat-treated bar made of multi-butted 4130 chromoly (to reduce weight).

I was actually thinking of getting this one but decided to pick BSD’s Raider bar. I like it so much, I’ll just stick with this one for a while.

But I highly endorse BSD’s HAH!

High As Hell specs:

  • Rise: 10.5″
  • Width: 29.6″
  • Backsweep: 11°
  • Upsweep: 2°
  • Weight: 1.7lbs
  • Price: $79.99 (may vary)

2. S&M Elevenz

S&M is one of the first if not the first BMX brands who released an 11″ bar. Everyone went crazy about the idea, but there are still very many riders who enjoy it!

This is the heaviest bar on the list because of its straight gauge construction but that also makes it the strongest.

Drop everything and pick S&M’s Elevenz bar if you want an extremely reliable 11″ BMX bar.

It also comes in multiple colors, ensuring there’s something for everyone. (FYI: Some colors sell out quickly, so be fast!)

Elevenz specs:

  • Rise: 11″
  • Width: 30″
  • Backsweep: 11°
  • Upsweep: 3°
  • Weight: 2.87lbs
  • Price: $69.99 (may vary)

3. Shadow Conspiracy Vultus SG

Shadow also saw the need for tall BMX bars, so joined the tribe with the 11″ version of their widely popular Vultus SG bar.

This is another straight gauge handlebar made of heat-treated chromoly, guaranteeing the strength you need.

What’s unique about the Vultus SG bar is the teardrop crossbar, Shadow’s signature detail that’s not just for the aesthetics but improves the bar’s overall toughness.

Vultus SG specs:

  • Rise: 11″
  • Width: 29″
  • Backsweep: 12°
  • Upsweep: 3°
  • Weight: 1.9lbs
  • Price: $79.99 (may vary)


Are taller bars better for BMX?

Yes, if you are a taller person. High-rise bars make the bike lift easier.

And you’ll have less back pain because you won’t be so bent over if you’re taller.

But it’s worth testing raising your front-end with spacers before switching to anything above 10″. (Just to be sure it’s something that’ll work for you.)
