DK Cygnus 24
Released January, 2010
The Pros:Maneuverable enough to take through the skatepark. Feels light weight so you don't have to force it hard to do what you want. Stylish design looks high-end without looking too boring.
The Cons:Hard to swap out any of the components, everything is pretty permanent.
The Cygnus 24 is one of DK's low-cost BMX offerings. The Cygnus 24 is distinguished from the closely related Cygnus by its 24" frame (as opposed to 20"). The pedals of the Cygnus 24, which are alloy platform as opposed to plastic, are a step up from the Cygnus, as are the Kenda multi-surface design tires, which are a little bigger than Kenda's Park/Trail design and can stand up to more punishment.
