2020 Kink Whip XL Overview
One of our most popular models, the Whip, is also available in a XL 21” toptube size. 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 XL comes in a new Matte Dusk Turquoise colorway.
Featuring Kink Stryker forks, the 9.25” Kink Buffalo CC bars and Kink Ridge 3-piece tubular chromoly cranks, the Whip XL is fitted with great components featuring modern geometry. Adding to all these specs are the comfortable Kink Ace flangeless grips, Kink Hemlock pedals, and Stealth seat and seat post. Retailing for a price everyone can agree with, the Whip XL cannot be beaten.

2020 Kink Whip XL Quality
I’m super happy that Kink made this bike chromoly, with sealed bearings. It is the perfect bike for bmx riders to shred. Everything is great and exceeding expectations.
21″ Top tube
A 21″ Top tube gives you a lot more control on your bike. Your bike will have a bigger feeling and you will be able to flow easier.
Only One Color Option
Sadly this bike is only offered in one color.
Buy if you are learning:
- all grinds
- x-up rides
- bunny hop
- half-cab/full cab
Don’t buy if you are learning:
- double whips
One of the best bmx bikes that I have reviewed. The full chromoly will really outlast any other option that comes with hi-tensile steel. If you are around 6′ you’ll love it.
