yeah those argos bmx ramps are cool, but they've got a lip at the top that catches (i dared my dad to go over one and his bike caught the lip... alot of skin got stuck to the road that day)

ones i got from argos 2 year ago are rounded of edges
they even sold a bridge section that fitted between 2 ramps

mind you i did take a RC18 over it & totally totalled the buggy on landing
