Introduced last year, the Drifter is our only 26” bike. Kink BMX is a BMX brand, through and through, and the Drifter is truly an extension of that. So why a 26” bike? This bike is for the BMX dad whose back has seen better days, but he’s still not afraid to jump a curb or two. It’s for riding to school or work, when the 20” wheels aren’t so practical. The Drifter is for having fun on your bike and ripping a timeless skid. The Drifter uses all standard BMX specs and components, which makes things super easy to maintain and gives the bike an extremely natural feel to a BMXer. The Black Chrome colorway really can’t be topped and is complimented with a matte black aluminum headtube badge.
The bike itself cuts no corners, starting with the full 100% 4130 chromoly frame, fork and handlebar set. Sealed bearings throughout the bike keep things rolling smooth, and double wall rims front and rear keep your wheels rock solid. In addition to the BMX components being tougher than anything you will find on a traditional 26” bike, they can all be swapped out or upgraded with any other standard BMX products. Thoroughly thought through design decisions also mean the Drifter can even fit pegs and a gyro.
