Cult – 2017 Complete Bikes

cult-bmx-2017-devotion-complete-black

With BMX shops and mail-orders around the world starting to receive shipments of Cult‘s new 2017 range of complete bikes, we figured it would be a good idea to take a closer look at just what Cult have to offer. One thing that you might notice with Cult is that they have a smaller range of bikes than some other brands offer, but they do a great job by covering all their bases when it comes to sizes and prices. They have the smaller 12″, 16″ and 18″ Juvenile bikes for the young guns just getting into BMX all the way up ot their high end Devotion that has been a new addition for this year that also comes in a 26″ size for those looking to cruise. Let’s take a closer look!

2017 DEVOTION

As we mentioned above, the Devotion is the newest bike to be added to the Cult line of complete bikes and it is their top of the line option that is spec’d and priced right. The Devotion takes place of the signature series bikes that Cult previously did, but they decided to focus on one bike versus a couple different bikes. This bike starts out with a full 4130 chromoly frame with a 21″ top tube length. You can find features like an integrated head tube, top and down tube gussets, removable brake mounts, an integrated seat post clamp and rounded seat and chain stays for the bigger 2.40″ tires. Up top you can find chromoly (2-piece on the Navy and Black versions, 4-piece on the translucent gold) bars and a full chromoly fork with a one-piece steerer tube. The rest of the bike is loaded up with Cult aftermarket parts.
