The 2022 Launch continues the legacy of a truly remarkable bike. This bike is still one of the best value-priced models in the market, hands down, year after year. The Launch pairs its great color selection with even better components. The Launch is equipped with both a sealed integrated headset and sealed Mid bottom bracket, which drastically improves performance and virtually eliminates maintenance of these components. Combined with a parts package that includes Kink Stryker forks, Kink T875 8.75-inch bars, and Mission Triumph 3pc tubular chromoly cranks, this bike is a rookie's dream.
The Kicker is our only 18-inch bike in the line and is built with younger riders in mind who aren't quite ready to make the jump to their first 20-inch bike. With similar components to the Kink Launch model, this bike doesn't compromise on any specs. This year the Kicker comes in a tough-looking Matte Midnight Blue color and is paired with all black components. Geometry on the Kicker 18-inch bike is specifically tailored in all aspects and is again, not simply a smaller bike. All parts and components work together to create the perfect bike for younger and shorter riders. A few notable components kitted with the Kicker are the 8-inch Kink T800 bars, rock solid 3-piece tubular chromoly cranks with sealed Mid bottom bracket, a sealed integrated headset, and modern tread design 2.4-inch tires.
The Gap is a versatile machine ready to handle anything you throw at it. Featuring modern geometry, the frame, fork, and bars add 4130 chromoly into the mix. Components found on the Gap take things up a notch and are not to be missed. Not only will it look the part, the 9-inch Kink T900 bars, Kink Stryker forks, Kink Bold HRD stem, sealed Mission Engage cassette hub, and Kink Ridge 3-piece tubular chromoly cranks help it to feel and perform the part. The addition of a Stealth seat and seat post are not to be overlooked either and add both adjustability and modern compatibility. Modern frame geometry brings a lower bottom bracket and raised standover height to the Gap, for a stable ride.
Classic and timeless design is what the Backwoods frame is all about. Built for the trails, but just as ready to ride at the park or in the streets. The narrow toptube and downtube both feature gussets so the frame can maintain its classic look without compromising on strength. The tapered rear triangle tubing looks sleek but maintains its stiffness where it needs to. Included Kink Master Clamp features a 5mm/6mm combo bolt that makes adjustment super convenient, and the K-Brick headtube badge really finishes off the look. Integrated chain tensioners, removable brake mounts, and big tire clearance are just a few of the other features for modern-day conveniences and compatibility. - Material: 100% Seamless Sanko 4130 Chromoly Tubing - Headtube: Integrated Campy Spec - Dropouts: Investment Cast with Integrated Chain Tensioners - Wide Stays for Big Tire Clearance - Tapered Seatstay and Chainstay Tubes - Simple Straight Seatstay and Chainstay Bridges - Weight: 4lb 15oz (20.75") - Chainstay Length: 13.5" Slammed - Bottom Bracket Height: 11.6" - Standover Height: 9" - Headtube Angle: 74.5° - Seattube Angle: 71°
The 2022 Curb, which is available in four great colorways, offers the entry-level rider a bike that looks and feels like a pro model without the price tag. Featuring modern geometry and outfitted with components such as 8.75-inch Kink T875 bars, 3-piece tubular chromoly cranks, a raised Mission Control TL stem, soft Kink Paragon grips with push-in Kink Thrust bar ends, and 2.4-inch tires front and rear; the Curb is perfect for any rider looking for a solid first bike.
The Williams frame is Nathan Williams' first signature frame from Kink and features modern street geometry while retaining a classic look. Despite the classic look though, the frame features several subtle details that should not be overlooked. The steeper 75.5-degree headtube is responsive, and the short 12.75" chainstay length makes the frame nimble without compromising on tire clearance; fitting up to 2.5" tires. The double butted toptube and downtube with gussets on both, ensure plenty of strength in the front end while the chainstay and seatstay bridge designs allot for generous tire clearance while adding as much stiffness as possible. Nathan's frame of course comes standard with integrated seat post clamp, integrated chain tensioners, and removable brake mounts. Additional details like the custom seatstay bridge badge inlay, and interior dropout knurling round out both the good looks and serious functionality of the Williams frame.
The Whip is where our line really gets exciting. This beast is constructed using full 100% 4130 chromoly throughout the entire frame, fork, and handlebar set. Complimenting this strong, durable structure are sealed bearings everywhere; headset, bottom bracket, and both front and rear hubs. The front rim has also been upgraded to the Mission Mylar, giving this bike double-wall rims both front and rear. Topping off all the great functionality, the Whip comes in a Gloss Black Fade colorway. Featuring Kink Stryker forks, 9-inch Kink T900 bars, and Kink Ridge 3-piece tubular chromoly cranks, the Whip is fitted with great components featuring modern geometry. Adding to all these specs are the comfortable Kink Ace flangeless grips, Kink Hemlock pedals, and Mission Nexus sprocket. Retailing for a price everyone can agree with, the Whip cannot be beaten.
