The Kicker is Kink's only 18" bike and is built with younger riders in mind who aren’t quite ready to make the jump to their first 20" bike. With similar components to the Kink Launch model, this bike doesn’t compromise on any specs. This year, the Kicker comes in a tough-looking Gloss Midnight Blue color and is paired with all black components and chrome bars. The Kicker is not simply a scaled-down bike. Parts spec and geometry on the Kicker 18" are specifically tailored to the needs of smaller, younger riders. A few notable components kitted with the Kicker are the 8" Kink Badger CC bars, rock solid 3-piece tubular chromoly cranks with sealed Mid bottom bracket, a sealed integrated headset, and all new modern tread design 2.4" tires.
