Catering to BMX and MX enthusiasts since 1979.

Flite X Sports

The tradition lives on.

Flite™ popularized BAR PADS for the BMX and MX industries in the 1980’s.

The iconic brand began when DJ Scott started manufacturing bar pads out of his garage in Orange County, California in 1979.  DJ Scott Manufacturing soon became the world’s largest manufacturer of bar pads and added grip donuts, seat covers, number plates, hand deflectors, pad sets and other accessories to the product lineup.

In the 1980’s, Flite was born.  Beloved by BMX riders around the world with fun and classic designs to deck out their ride.

In addition to the Flite brand, DJ Scott Manufacturingwas the behind the scenes manufacturer of accessories for some of the biggest names in cycling and motocross.  GT, Haro, SE Racing, Mongoose, Robinson, ELF, Skyway, Fox Racing, Yamaha, Troy Lee Designs and so many more…

Today, the tradition continues.  At Flite, we are still making the classic Motocross and old school BMX designs you loved in your youth in the same factory using the same tooling, same materials and even some of the original team members!

Flite X Sports is still the country’s largest producer of MX bar pads, BMX pad sets and grip donuts, in addition to being  a top producer of Hand Deflectors, Grip Covers, BMX pads sets, Seat Covers, BMX Decal Sets and numberplates.
