Mongoose are game-changers in the BMX world, and have expanded into producing many other types of bikes too. Skip Hess, the original founder of the brand, developed the first US-made cast magnesium alloy wheel for BMX bikes back in 1974, and from there the brand and company grew. Mongoose soon became the biggest BMX brand and race team that there was. The company also delved into the worlds of MTB and Scooters. If you’re daring enough to try BMX, you know you’ll be reaching for a Mongoose bike to get you through the stunts because of the quality and longevity of the bike and its brand.
