Owned by the longest running BMX distributor in Australia, Blackeye has 40+ years of BMX industry knowledge poured into their bike range, ensuring that you get the best spec'd bike possible, for the best price possible.

The Blackeye Hornet 18 inch bike comes ready to rip the skateparks and jumps, but for the smaller/younger rider.

Strong components like the sealed bearing cassette hub and tubular 3-piece cranks sets the Blackeye Hornet bike apart from other bikes at a similar price point - in fact, normally a bike like this would be sitting a couple hundred dollars higher than $549.
