Regarded by many as the ultimate BMX freestyle bike of the 1980s era, the Haro Master set the benchmark for technical innovation, quality and cutting edge design. Inspired by its predecessor; The Haro Freestyler, the Master represented Haro’s vision for the evolution of freestyle and the ambitions of a new generation of riders.
In 1986, Haro delivered its most ambitious version of the Master to date. The phenomenal success of the Neon Green ‘85 model became the creative platform for what would become the most popular freestyle bike of the mid 1980’s. Three stunning color options, with exposed chrome on the fork blades and rear triangles, pushed the Master into a quality league of its own, while progressive geometry, stylish graphics and a selection of market leading Haro "Group 1" components, combined to deliver a formidable freestyle weapon. In the spring of 1986, the Master touched down in the BMX Press alongside the ultimate statement from the first "rider owned" brand in Freestyle... Declaring... "No Competition".
Few riders can claim to have had such an influence on every discipline and aspect of the modern freestyle scene, as Dennis "DMC" McCoy. Having honed his skills riding with his BMX Brigade on the streets of Kansas City, Haro’s first non-Californian recruit arrived in Carlsbad in early ’85, competing in his only season as an amateur in the coveted AFA Masters series. And DMC wasted no time in demonstrating to the locals that there was a world outside of California, making an immediate impact in his debut season before stepping up to the pro ranks in early ’86. A series of AFA titles on ramps, in the fast evolving flatland class and in the "overall", capped an era of domination for the innovative all rounder. There is no question that his countless wins and top placings at the 2hip King of Vert, Meet The Street, Hoffman Bicycle Stunt Series, Vans Triple Crown and X Games, through the late 80’s and up to the present day, were born from a unique level of talent and true character. Dennis McCoy simply embodies everything positive about a sport that he has dedicated his life to.
In honor of Dennis' commitment and service to the Haro brand, we remind ourselves of that phenomenal first professional year in 1986, with the release of a Limited Edition, full chromoly tribute to his trusty Haro Master. In a blur of neon green and sparkling chrome, Dennis turned the freestyle world upside down with some of the most technically advanced ramp and flatland riding ever seen. And although we would never attempt to achieve his greatness on a bike, we can roll out on the 2016 DMC Master tribute bike and remind ourselves of how awesome those performances were.
