It can be argued that Dave Mirra was the greatest freestyler of all time, however,it’s undeniable that Dave did more for BMX’s mainstream exposure than any other rider in the sport’s history. As a way to honor Dave’s legacy, we’ve teamed up with Mirraco Corporation to create a bike that pays tribute to one of the many models he rode during his career with Haro. In keeping with both companies’ focus on giving back to the sport, a portion of the revenue generated will be donated to DaveMirra.com to support organizations that promote youth cycling.

There are no two ways about it: Dave Mirra was the spark that revitalized Haro in the mid 1990s. Gone were the days of Bob Haro and Ron Wilkerson behind the brand's direction -- it was now Dave Mirra and Ryan Nyquist designing complete bikes that were affordable, high quality and available worldwide to a new legion of BMX fans. A few years later, the X Games hit, and suddenly, Dave Mirra's signature Haro was on every TV screen of an ESPN subscriber, and demand for his signature bikes and components sky rocketed. Mirra remained an esteemed member of the Haro team through the end of 2006, and then started his own brand, Mirraco, for the remainder of his BMX career. But the majority of Mirra's accomplishments at the top of the sport were done on a signature Haro, and it's where most of us remember him best.
