2020 Kink Gap Review


2020 Kink Gap Overview

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 Gloss Lavender Splatter or Gloss Rootbeer Fade 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 Grizzly CC 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.

2020 Kink Gap Price

For $379 you are getting a really good deal. This bike is super solid for a new bmx rider.

2020 Kink Gap Quality

I will always say that Kink does a great job at making good bikes for good prices. The 2020 Kink Gap is another bike that they have been able to turn out and include good parts.

Highlights

Affordable

My favorite thing about this bike is that it really is affordable.

Lowlights

Hi-tensile rear end

Most of the frame is chromoly. But the back part is hi-tensile. Companies do this to cut costs. With the hi-tensile back end you have a good chance of bending it as you learn abusive spins.

Buy if you are learning:

  • 180
  • small 360
  • x-up rides
  • bunny hop
  • half-cab
  • Barspin

Don’t buy if you are learning:

  • tailwhips
  • 360 stair-sets
  • Big handrails
  • Backflips

Conclusion 🤩

The colors are sick! The parts are strong! 9″ inch bars are good for any rider. Another quality built bike by Kink.
