2021 Kink Williams Review


Set to be released in June of 2020, the Kink Williams is going to be a huge hit for mid to advanced level riders. The red color is one of my favorite things about this bike. Not to mention the 4 pegs and solid aftermarket parts. This will keep you rolling stronger for longer.

2021 Kink Williams Overview

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 bright Gloss Mirror Red 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 Foundation II forks with a short 26mm offset, and aftermarket Kink Williams 9.25” rise heat-treated bars. The impressive aftermarket components list continues with the Cinema Rewind 25t sprocket, Cinema Sync half-link chain, Cinema Williams 2.5” tires, and Cinema Martinez stem. The 2021 Williams also features Kink Ridge 48-spline cranks, Cinema ZX wheelset with four nylon hub guards, and four Cinema C4 pegs, so this bike is truly ready to ride straight out of the box.

Frame Geometry

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

This is a long toptube.

Perfect for riders that are tall between 5′ 11″ to 6′ 2″

B: Chain Stay Length: 12.75” – Learn About Chain Stays Here

This is a medium chainstay. It will give you a good balance of responsiveness and control.

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

A less steep head tube gives you more control.

E: Bottom Bracket Height: 11.7″

F: Stand over height: 9″

This is a tall standover.

A tall standover gives you more stability and will make bars, and t-bogs easier.

2021 Kink Williams Price

$750 is NOT cheap. However, It’s worth it.. For this high price tag, you get a pro-level bike with a lot of after market Cinema parts. The Williams bike will last a long time.

2021 Kink Williams Quality

If you take a look at the spec list, you will see that most parts listed have links to learn more. This means that they are aftermarket and would cost a lot of money to build on a bike separately. Any bike with aftermarket parts is automatically a higher quality.

Highlights

Pro-level

I like pro-level bikes because they last a rider through all of the stages of progression. This is also a low priced pro-level bike. Most comparable quality bikes are at the $900 price range.

Lowlights

Expensive

Not many people or people’s parents can afford to drop $750 on a bike.

Buy if you are learning:

  • 180
  • 360 taps
  • fakie tricks
  • Barspin
  • Tailwhip
  • Flip
  • 720
  • icepick

Don’t buy if you are learning:
