Kink 2011 Launch


$300.00 Released January, 2010

Product Shot 1 The Pros:Better quality Mission components than on other Kink models. Grips are more durable than other Kink and competing models, also have comfortable hold. Relatively light (26 lbs) compared to other BMX bikes in this price bracket.

The Cons:Stock tires have a heavier tread than many similar bikes and begin to wear quickly. Seat does not pivot, so its position cannot be adjusted - most BMX bikes come with this feature. Pedals are somewhat heavy and do not grip as well as other models.

The 2011 Launch is a mid-range BMX bicycle from Kink that offers an alternative to the Kicker, a similar model in the company's 2011 product line. Fitted with a pair of 20-inch wheels featuring Alienation PBR rims, the Launch functions as heavy-duty model intended for larger bikers.

In addition, the rear of the bike is fitted with a set of three-piece tubular chromoly cranks for quick acceleration, and a sealed bottom bracket allows for safe and secure impact absorption that will be distributed evenly.
