Founded in 1991, Hoffman Bikes has over two decades of experience specialising in high quality BMX bikes for riders at all levels, and also offers a range of aftermarket frames, parts and accessories. Based in Oklahoma City, the company was founded by legendary BMX freestyler and the man sometimes described as the greatest vert-ramp rider in the history of the sport Mat Hoffman, when he was just 20 years old.
Hoffman remains part of the brand today as one of the Hoffman ‘Lifers’, alongside Kevin Robinson, Jon Taylor and Will Love. Hoffman’s Pros are Seth Kimbrough, Ben Hennon, Jeremy Hrabal, Mikey Babbel, Zack Warden, Trent McDaniel, Dylan Sparkman and Morgan Wade, and there is also a Flatland team featuring Kevin Jones, Matt Wilhelm and Art Thomason.
After a number of tough financial years for Hoffman, the company announced the ‘IBD’ line in 2015. Available only in selected independent shops, this range includes high-end, professional models such as Kimbrough’s ‘BAMA’, Hennon’s ‘Lady Luck’, Hoffman’s ‘Condor’ and Jones’s ‘Strowler’ frames, plus new models ‘Crucible’, ‘Immersion’, ‘Seeker’ and the 18-inch ‘Imprint’.
Alongside IBD comes a new range of entry-level and intermediate-level BMX Freestyle bikes, offered exclusively in the USA through a high street chain – the ‘Condor’ in 16”, 18” and 20”, ‘Aves’, ‘Carrion’, ‘Cirrus’ and ‘Talon’. This line also introduces the first Hoffman Bikes 26” trail model, called the ‘Version’.
