2020 We The People Crysis Review


The Crysis is a strong mid-level bike. Made with full chromoly, aftermarket SALT and ECLAT parts, sealed bearings, and much more. This bike weighs 26.66 lbs, and is designed to hold up to any kind of mid-level riding. Is it worth $660 though?

2020 We The People Crysis Overview

The Crysis is a sleek and stealthy bike designed to rip it on all terrains, with a spec that could easily be found on the same bikes the pro teams are riding on this year. You’ll find a generous helping of Wethepeople aftermarket parts including the all-terrain 2.35” overbite tires, Logic sprocket and now the Logic stem. If that wasn’t enough, the Crysis is available in two frame sizes (20.5” or 21”), both of which use WTP’s new invest cast wishbone and taller 127mm head tube for a super clean and refined look.

Frame Geometry

A: Top Tube Length:  20.5″-21″ – Learn what size is right for you here.

A 20.5″ TT is for smaller riders.

If you are around 5′ to 5’6″ get a 20.5″

If you are taller than 5’6″ get a 21″

B: Chain Stay Length: 13.2”

A 13.2″ Chain stay is a little longer than average. A longer Chain stay givers your more control with manuals and ice picks.

C: Head Tube Angle: 75° – Learn About Head Tube Angles Here

Steep head tube angles make the bike “snappy” meaning more responsive to fast turns.

A less steep head tube gives you more control.

D: Seat Tube Angle: 71°

E: Bottom Bracket Height: 11.65″

F: Stand Over Height: 8.75”-9″

The Stand over height affects how much frame there is to control tricks with. 8.75″ is around the average size.

2020 We The People Crysis Price

$660 is a lot of money for a bike. That’s why it is aimed at people who are pretty serious about riding and who want a good bike to last them a while. This is a good first bike if you are already serious about bmx.

2020 We The People Crysis Quality

The WTP Crysis is a mid-level bike with high-level quality. I love it when I review a bike with this level off quality, because it reassures me that there is still some good bike being made.

Full chromoly. This bike has Chromoly bars, forks, and frame. This means that these parts will last a lot longer than hi-tensile steel. Learn more here.

The cranks on the Crysis are something we don’t normally see on complete bikes. 48 spline cranks!! While this may not seem like much… 48 spline cranks are a lot stronger and lighter than 8 spline cranks.

Double wall rims are a must for any serious street riding. Sending spins down big drops will absolutely murder single wall rims.

Highlights

Really Good Quality

As I mentioned in the quality section, this bike has really really good parts!

Lowlights

A little expensive

It is designed as a mid-level bike, but it is pushing a pro-level price. I wish this bike could get a little closer to $500.

Buy if you are learning:

  • x up rides
  • 360
  • barspins
  • 180 combos
  • crankflips
  • Grinds
  • Whips

Don’t buy if you are learning:

  • Good for anything

Conclusion 🤩

I think the Crysis is a great bike for anyone. It has a somewhat low price point making it affordable for most. If you make the investment in the Crysis, you get really good parts. It will last the average rider quite a while. The specs are designed to help you progress in the streets as well as the park.

If you decide to buy this bike get it from Chain Reaction, which sells in the US and UK.
