DK Siklon


$230.00 Released January, 2010

Product Shot 1 The Pros:All-black design makes the neon blue detailing pop out. Versatile design useful in every context that BMX bikes are used. Light weight design, easy to move around and carry.

The Cons:Not as light as the higher end pro lineup. Handlebars are a weak point, could bend on a hard hit. Rims lack the impact resistance of higher end wheels, will bend with a hard landing on a curb edge.

The Siklon is a low-cost BMX in DK's Park/Trail line, a line DK promotes as being an improvement over their previous BMXs. The Siklon has many of the features common throughout this line of BMXs, such as 4130 chromoly fork, Tektro alloy seatstay mounted U-brake and plastic platform pedals (which adorn the lower-cost DK BMXs, as opposed to the higher-end aluminum platforms).

Where to Buy

The machined headtube frame of the Siklon, which allows you to adjust the head tube to your own personal specs, is the main difference between this BMX and the rest of the BMXs in the DK Park/Trail line. The rise of the handlebars, only 7.3", is also a change from the rest of the line, which have an 8" rise (excepting the flagship Asterik 26, which has a minute 30mm rise). Another of the features that sets the Siklon apart from the rest of DK's Park/Trail BMXs is the amount of color options available.
