2021 Kink Cloud Overview

The Kink Cloud is Kink Pro team rider Travis Hughes’ new signature bike. If you’ve seen Travis ride, you know there is just about nothing he can’t do on a bike, and the Cloud is based on his personal geometry preferences. Component wise, the Kink Cloud has got you covered with the included four plastic pegs and rear freecoaster wheel. The wild Gloss Translucent Teal fade colorway really sets this bike apart without being too flashy, and graphics inspired by Travis’s design ideas really finish off the look of this bike.

In addition to the full 100% 4130 chromoly frame and fork, the Cloud features an amazing list of components. This model comes with aftermarket Kink Rex 9.5” 13-butted 100% 4130 chromoly bars, Kink Pinnacle Stealth seat, and Kink 2.4” Sever tires front and rear. The integrated seat clamp, removable brake design, and Mission Dispatch freecoaster rear wheel solidify the aftermarket look and feel to this bike. To top it all off the Cloud, of course, comes standard with four Mission Targa plastic pegs.

2021 Kink Cloud Price

$600 is a lot of money to spend on a bike. However, this is the cheapest high-level bike that you will find. If you need a bike that can hold up to pretty decent riding, this is a good one for you.

2021 Kink Cloud Quality

Parts like Mission mylar double-wall rimsOpens in a new tab., kink rex barsOpens in a new tab., and 100% chromoly frame really make the 2021 Cloud stand out. It is a really good high-level bike.


Good quality to price ratio

This is something that I look at a lot when reviewing bikes. And it really takes into consideration how good a bike is vs how much it costs. For example, the 2021 Cloud is a really good ratio because the extra quality is worth the extra price. On the other hand, some brands have a really bad ratio. Meaning they are really expensive and low quality.



This bike will always be one of my top picks.

  • Good for all tricks

2021 Kink Cloud Conclusion

My parents bought me my first BMX bike in 2011 and it changed my life. This bike has taken me all over the world and introduced me to cool places and cooler people. My goal is to help get 1,000,000 people into BMX so they can experience the joy and freedom that comes from a progression based sport.
