2020 Kink Downside Overview
Freshened up once again for 2020, the Kink Downside continues to get even better. The general construction is nothing less than you would expect, with its 100% 4130 chromoly frame, fork, bars, and sealed bearings throughout the bike. The big bars, short backend, and sealed rear freecoaster hub mean the Downside is ready for some serious riding. The special Matte Dusk Sage colorway needs to be seen in person to be truly appreciated, and the paired skin wall tires and black parts keep this bike looking pro.
When it comes to the components featured on the Downside, you won’t find any shortcuts either. Components like the Kink Bold HRD stem, 2.4” wide Kink Sever tires, and Mission Dispatch freecoaster, start to really set this bike apart. This model also features the tall 9” Kink Grizzly CC bars, Kink Ridge 3-piece tubular chromoly cranks, and two Mission Targa plastic pegs.
Note: This bike includes removable brake mounts and full Mission brake set.
