Take a closer look at the 2023 complete bikes from Kink!
A few months back Kink released their 2023 complete bikes with a full range of bikes from theri 12″ Coast all the way up to their top of the line Nathan Williams signature complete bike. If you want to take a closer look and see just what each bike looks like on the move, they have released promo videos for each bike. Up top is a quick teaser, but the video for each bike has been embedded below! Take a look!
2023 Kink Coast 12″
“The Coast is all about inspiring kids to start riding from an early age. Balance bikes, like the Coast, help to teach kids balance and coordination instead of relying on training wheels. What’s special about the Coast, is the way it combines features and geometry for children, with that of a BMX bike. The Coast is truly a balance bike designed for working a child’s way up to their first BMX bike.
Coming in a cool Gloss Digital Teal colorway, the Coast is kitted with some great BMX style parts. The 5” tall Kink T500 bars, 12” Kink Lance forks, and Mission X7 20-hole rims, all adapt BMX components to the right size and dimensions to comfortably fit a child’s needs. The ultra-low standover height allows the seat to be dropped even lower for kids to get rolling as soon as possible.
Note: Designed for children ages 2 and up. Seat height adjustable from 14.25″-16.75″.”
2023 Kink Roaster 12″
“Simply put, the Kink Roaster is designed to be a kid’s first BMX bike. The 12” wheel and frame size make it an easy transition from a balance bike and means kids will feel completely comfortable on their first pedaling bike. Once again, this bike isn’t simply a bike with 12” wheels or merely a miniaturized BMX bike. It factors into account standard BMX geometry, and applies them to a younger child’s size and needs.
The Gloss Digital Green colorway really pops while the bike sports some great components throughout. In addition to the 5” Kink T500 bars and 12” Kink Lance forks, the Roaster features a coaster brake in lieu of a lever-based brake system, that could be too difficult for some children to use at a young age. The seatstay bridge has been designed to accept a caliper brake or 990 brake plate for those looking to add a lever style brake as well.
Note: Designed for children ages 4 and up. Seat height adjustable from 15.5″-18.5″.”
2023 Kink Pump 14″
“While 14” bikes are not all that common, the Kink Pump 14” bike fills an important role in our lineup. Kids are not only getting into BMX at an earlier age, they are also progressing at an even earlier age and for that need a proper fitting bike as they grow. The Pump 14” fits perfectly between 12” and 16” bikes and is built with proportionate geometry and components suited to this age and height rider. Small details like the Mission Micro brake lever are considered carefully to ensure everything is of proper fit and function on this bike. The reduced angle of the Weider seat also means kids can sit down and ride comfortably.
The Gloss Digital Maroon colorway is a custom take on a great color that you really can’t go wrong with, and the reflective strip tires add a fresh look to the bike with the bonus of some added safety. The 6” rise T600 bars, 14” Lance forks and Pump frame all feature geometry tailored just for this 14” bike to fit the rider who’s outgrown their 12”. Component wise, the Kink Pump is truly a legitimate BMX bike with a Mission Function cassette rear hub, Mission Tracker 2.25” tires, and updated Mission Cease V2 brakes.”
2023 Kink Carve 16″
“The Kink Carve 16” bike is the younger sibling of our Kicker 18”, and it ensures every age and every height rider can find a perfect fitting Kink bike. Kids are getting into BMX younger and younger, and we love it. The 2023 Carve comes in a great Gloss Digital White color, which is complimented by black components throughout.
Properly proportioned geometry and components create a modern, yet comfortable ride, suited for the rider who isn’t ready for the bump up to a larger 18” bike yet. Still stacked with great parts, the 2023 Carve comes with 7” Kink T700 bars, a short reach 40mm Mission topload stem, rock solid 3-piece tubular chromoly cranks with sealed Mid bottom bracket, a sealed integrated headset, and modern tread design 2.4” tires.”
2023 Kink Kicker 18″
The Kicker is our only 18” 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” 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 Gloss Digital Black color and is paired with all black components.
Geometry on the Kicker 18” 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” 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” tires.
2023 Kink Curb
“The 2023 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. Whether you choose Matte Midnight Black, Matte Gold Leaf, Matte Alps Blue, or Matte Mica Green, you are getting an amazing bike.
Featuring modern geometry and outfitted with components such as 8.75” Kink T875 bars, 3-piece tubular chromoly cranks, a raised Mission Control topload stem, softer Kink Ace grips with push-in Kink Thrust bar ends, and 2.4” tires front and rear; the Curb is perfect for any rider looking for a solid first bike.”
2023 Kink Launch
“The 2023 Launch continues the legacy of a truly remarkable bike. This bike is still one of the best value priced models in the market, year after year. Available in Matte Midnight Black, Matte Cosmos Magenta, and Gloss Galaxy Silver colorways, 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” bars, and Mission Triumph 3pc tubular chromoly cranks, this bike is a new rider’s dream.”
2023 Kink Gap
“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, and is available in both Matte Baked Red and Matte Iridescent Mocha colorways. 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” 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.”
2023 Kink Gap FC
“After its hugely successful introduction, the Gap FC continues to feature the same great Gap specs but adds a freecoaster rear hub for making backwards tricks a breeze. Featuring modern geometry, the frame, fork, and bars also add some 4130 chromoly into the mix and is available in a classic Chrome Plated colorway.

The 2023 Switch does not disappoint in its design or components either, and features 100% 4130 chromoly construction, and sealed bearings throughout the bike. The addition of two included plastic pegs means this bike is grind ready out of the box. The unique Gloss Gravity Grey colorway is paired with all black parts and Kink Chinaski aftermarket seat.

2023 Kink Cloud
“The Kink Cloud is Kink Pro team rider Travis Hughes’ signature bike. If you’ve seen Travis ride, you know there is just about nothing he can’t do on a bike, and the Cloud is based on his personal geometry preferences. Component wise, the Kink Cloud has got you covered with the included four plastic pegs and rear freecoaster wheel. The stealthy Matte Iridescent Black colorway really sets this bike apart without being flashy, and graphics inspired by Travis’s design ideas really finish off the look of this bike.

To top it all off, the Cloud of course comes standard with four Mission Targa plastic pegs.”
2023 Kink Williams
“The Kink Williams is the flagship model in our line and our only signature bike with Kink Pro team rider Nathan Williams. The Williams is a no compromises bike, that gets as close to Nathan’s personal ride as possible with a much more friendly price tag. Stacked with aftermarket parts, and superior manufacturing and materials, the Williams bike is the best of the best in BMX, no question. The translucent Matte Forge Blue colorway is truly unique and shows off the craftsmanship of the frame.
The frame itself features both a double-butted toptube and downtube and is paired up to aftermarket Kink Origin forks with a 30mm offset, and aftermarket Kink Williams 4pc 9.25” rise heat-treated bars.

2023 Kink Drifter 26″
“Despite its popularity, the Kink Drifter is our only 26” bike. Kink BMX is a BMX brand, through and through, and the Drifter is truly an extension of that. 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 Matte Midnight Black and Gloss Wolf Grey colorways are both 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.”
