This is a longer chain stay. It gives you a more stable and controlled feel.
Steep head tube angles make the bike "snappy" meaning more responsive to fast turns.
A less steep head tube gives you more control.
This is a medium/tall standover.
A medium stand over provides a good balance between responsiveness and control.
While a tall stand over allows you to pinch more of the seat for bars and t-bogs.
The Control is just under $500. Most parents will spend about that much on a new bike for their kid. In comparison to other bikes with the same quality, I think that this bike is a little overpriced.
The Cult control is borderline mid-level quality. It has a double wall rim in the back and a single wall upfront. Which isn't really a big deal since the back wheel takes most of the beating. The fact that the frame isn't full chromoly is the only thing keeping it from being mid-level.
Like I mentioned earlier, bikes under $500 sell more. Which helps grow the sport. ☺️
I don't mean to bash the bike, because it does have some 'aftermarket' parts like the Salvation Stem and Cult Vans tires. But there are full chromoly bikes for this price range. Finding one would be a better option.
The 2021 Cult Control is for someone who has been riding bmx for a few months and can do some basic beginner tricks. Upgrading to the Control will give you a bike with some aftermarket parts and a little added strength. If you have a little extra money, I'd recommend getting a bike with full chromoly.
