The Kink Whip and Whip XL feature many of the great components of the Kink Gap bikes as well as some upgrades including a 100% Chromoly frame and forks. Not only will this make the frame and forks lighter but it will also make them stronger giving you the confidence to push your BMX riding to the next level. 

What are the differences between the Kink Whip and the Kink Whip XL?

There are two differences between the Kink Whip and the Whip XL. The Whip XL has a longer 21" long top tube whereas the regular Kink Whip has a 20.5" top tube. Also the handlebars on the Kink Whip XL are slightly taller at 9.25" rise as opposed to the Kink Whip that has 9" rise bars. Apart from this the componentry is identical between the two bikes.

What parts are on the Whip and Whip XL BMX bikes?

The Kink Whip and Whip XL BMX bikes feature a 100% 4130 Chromoly  frame making it both lighter and stronger than an equivalent frame made from High Tensile Steel frame. The forks are the Kink Stryker which are 100% Chromoly and feature tapered legs and are connected with a Mission sealed integrated headset.

These 20" BMX bikes have many high end components including the Mission Engage fully sealed rear 9 tooth, 14mm cassette hub giving you confidence this will keep you rolling maintenance free. This combined with the Mission Foxtrot sealed front hub are both laced onto Mission Mylar double walled rims with 36 spokes. These are running on Kink Sever 2.4" wide tyres with a knurled tread pattern designed for all different types of riding.

The Kink Ridge tubular BMX cranks are made from Chromoly and are 170mm long. These have a 19mm diameter, 8 splined spindle and sealed bottom bracket bearings ensuring your ride is maintenance free. Completing the drive chain is a Mission Charge 25 tooth aluminum sprocket and Kink Hemlock pedals.

Up top there's Kink Form flangeless grips on Chromoly bars which are clamped to a Kink Bold HRD top load stem. The Mission Token brake lever connects to the Mission Cease V2 rear brake via a Mission L4 Linear cable to give you good stopping power.

The Kink Whip and Whip XL are fitted with a Kink Duran Stealth Pivotal BMX seat and seat post. This is a premium seat with a subtle debossed Kink logo.
