Despite its popularity, the Kink Drifter is our only 26” bike. Kink BMX is a BMX brand, through and through, and the Drifter is truly an extension of that. This bike is for the BMX dad whose back has seen better days, but he’s still not afraid to jump a curb or two. It’s for riding to school or work, when the 20” wheels aren’t so practical. The Drifter is for having fun on your bike and ripping a timeless skid. The Drifter uses all standard BMX specs and components, which makes things super easy to maintain and gives the bike an extremely natural feel to a BMXer. The Gloss Digital White colorway really shines and is complimented with a matte black aluminum headtube badge.
The bike itself cuts no corners, starting with the full 100% 4130 chromoly frame, fork and handlebar set. Sealed bearings throughout the bike keep things rolling smooth, and double wall rims front and rear keep your wheels rock solid. In addition to the BMX components being tougher than anything you will find on a traditional 26” bike, they can all be swapped out or upgraded with any other standard BMX products. Thoroughly thought through design decisions also mean the Drifter can even fit pegs and a gyro.

One (1) year warranty against material defects, workmanship defects, breaks, cracks and defective or malfunctioning parts.

Your bike will come semi-assembled for shipping only. All parts pre-assembled are not properly adjusted for riding and must be checked over and adjusted by a qualified bike shop. We also strongly recommend that ongoing maintenance and/or upgrades are done by a qualified bike shop.
Issues that are not covered after being built by a reputable bike shop include; stripped threads and/or rounded nuts, bent dropouts, bent axles, tires, tubes, grips, minor paint and cosmetic finishes, dents, rider abuse, misuse, neglect, or improper maintenance. The rider is also responsible for purchasing a bike appropriate to their riding level.
