Sean Sexton has been a fan favourite for several years, and it’s easy to see why. His style on the streets is consistently excellent – from those opposite downside whips to the rail tooth over 360s, Sexton makes it all look damn fine. The guys at Kink BMX say Sean’s long-lasting popularity is down to him simply having good taste, an even better personality and raw talent on a bike. That makes sense. He’s definitely seen and done a lot in BMX and his efforts have been appreciated by fans and sponsors alike. The Kink SXTN frame has been out for a few years now. It’s a tried and tested piece, proven by Sean and the boys to handle it all – steezy downwhips included.
Established in 1994, Kink still has the same mission today as it did when it began – to help its customers have a good time, enjoy being on their bikes, and spend time with friends. As long time Kink rider, Sexton has put a proper shift in with the Rochester, New York based brand. Kink started out as a parts company and have seen many successful products launch them to where they are now – manufacturing every part that a BMX bike is made of, plus complete bikes themselves.

“We worked closely with Sean Sexton to create his version of the perfect frame, from the geometry to the colors. The SXTN frame includes some really unique features like its hollow invest cast dropouts with integrated chain tensioners, and custom Arizona state flag inspired invest cast seat stay bridge. The oval downtube looks great and adds additional dent resistance to the 100% 4130 chromoly tubing, that is also used throughout the frame. The EBS removable brake mount system means the frame both looks and functions great, with or without brakes." –Kink BMX
It’s clear there are lots of key features on this frame, for both strength and looks. On the strength side, that oval downtube will certainly do the job, and the whole tube set has an air of high quality to it. We like the dropout design with the open tubes, it’s a unique detail that gives the SXTN frame real character. Lastly (along with some more likely candidates like gloss black) this frame comes in some cracking colourways, from this gloss trans blue to matte slate green. Paired with some decent sticker graphics from Kink, the SXTN definitely stands out.
