What were some of the happiest moments of your childhood? That question will throw a lot of minds back to their first time on two-wheels. Everyone can remember that awesome feeling of owning their first ever BMX bike.
Bikes have come a long way over the years and with cutting-edge design and the latest in manufacturing technology, today's kids BMX bikes are something to marvel over. Take the components, features, geometry and strength you’d expect from a high-end adults BMX bike and scale them down.
Lightweight, fast and strong. Now you’ve got the perfect-sized ride for any youngster. As kids are constantly growing we have included a range of wheel sizes in our selection. There’s something for all sizes here.
Kink Roaster 12"
Designed from the ground up to be the ideal first BMX bike, the Kink Roaster 12 is the perfect bike for kids making the transition from a balance bike to a pedalled bike.
With the Roast, they have taken the geometry of a traditional BMX bike and engineered it to suit the size and needs of a younger child. Stacked with great components including 5 inch rise Kink Puma handlebars, 12 inch Kink Lance forks, soft Mission padded seat and wide 2.25 inch tyres for extra grip and stability. The colour scheme looks great, with the Translook red frame complementing the all black components.
Kink has equipped this bike with a coaster brake in lieu of a traditional lever braking system as they believe this is an easier method of braking for young children to use. The Roaster is designed for children ages 4 and up.
