Larry Edgar is an absolute animal on a bike. The dude goes higher than anyone else, fact. He does 360 tables legitimately upside down… It has to be seen to be believed. We love Larry’s riding, it’s 100% wild, exciting to watch and always a crowd pleaser.
Stephen Murray, certified BMX legend, started the Stay Strong brand after his life-changing accident in 2007. The accident, at the Dew Tour in Baltimore, left Stephen paralysed from the neck down. In the last ten years, Stephen has done some amazing things with the Stay Strong brand. He really is an incredible human. You can read the full story in his autobiography, Staying Strong, that came out exactly ten years after the crash. To learn more about Stephen, see our 10 Weeks of Murray series that explores everything from his background and family life to his current lifestyle and the Stay Strong team. Knowing and working with Stephen is something we’re very proud of.
Stephen lived in Riverside, California for many years before returning to the UK in 2016. In Riverside, Stephen’s house was pretty much surrounded by dirt jumps – he kept that immediate connection to the BMX scene and saw some crazy sessions go down in his back (and front) yard. A regular at those sessions was Larry Edgar, so that’s how the match was made. Proudly representing Stay Strong, Larry now has a signature set of handlebars that he uses for navigating the skies.

These bars are dialled. They’re 9" tall but don’t look like big bars – they’re nicely proportioned. 29" wide, black only, these are straight up no-nonsense bars. With a proven combo of 12º backsweep and 1º upsweep, these bars feel totally natural and balanced, especially with a set of ODI x Stay Strong grips…
