Kink gap review

Price

$350 Is very affordable, especially for a beginner bike. If you are just getting into bmx you will like this bike.

Quality

Like most low end Kink Bikes, they use a lot of Mission parts. Mission is Kink's budget line, offering bmx parts for a lower price. With that being said, it will be a lower quality than the bikes that use signature Kink Parts.

Highlights

Low Price

The price is low so you can get into bmx for a good price to determine if you love it.

Lowlights

Not the BEST parts. 🀬

The parts that come on this bike are good. However, they are not the absolute best. Don't stress it if you are just beginning..

Park

Park would probably be the best for this bike. You'll be able to land all of the beginner tricks with ease. Parts shouldn't start breaking until you get on to 540's and whips.

Street

As a beginner bike, you will be able to ride street as well. Again this is perfect for beginner tricks. Basic grinds, 180's and ever 360's will be good. Be careful with huge stair-sets.

Dirt

If you absolutely love dirt... you can ride it, just keep it small. The Kink Curb really isn't built to endure the beating that big dirt will give it. Brake will come in pretty handy!

Conclusion 🀩

Kink did a good job making an affordable bmx bike that can hold up to a beginner learning new tricks. Get familiar with bmx on this bike and then look at other options.
