[REVIEW] Kink Sound Sprocket 22T post #1

Very nice 4 spoke design, and pretty light too. My friend had a Sound so i thought why not give it a try, it looks great and seems really strong since he rides hard. Ive had this sprocket for 3 months, and it hasn't broken on me until today. I sometimes miss concrete grinds, so my sprocket hits pretty hard, and hasn't bent or anything. Pretty stiff and strong when it came to that. It basically does everything a sprocket does and should do, but, almost any 22T aluminum sprocket is really weak.

I did a high fakie air and as soon as my back tire landed and i started to put pedal pressure so i dont go 203942039430429302 miles an hour in fakie, the sprocket snapped hard, which I REALLY wasn't expecting since its held up so well.

I'm not sure how to rate this sprocket, because it did such a good job until then.
It's not a BAD sprocket, but I wouldn't buy the 22T version again




PRICE: $40 USD

Pros:
does what you want it to do
looks good
holds up to missed concrete grinds- no bends.

cons:
very fragile to pedal pressure, so if you do fast 180's and you put a lot of pedal pressure, don't get it.

6/10

Also i'd like to say, the 19mm sprocket adapter doesn't sit flush on a profile spindle, so you have like 2mm of play between the sprocket and the spindle, which really sucks cause the sprocket doesn't stay straight, it wobbles up and down.

I have the 25t and i've had it for 4 months, no problems what so ever. My friend broke 3 kink sprockets, hes a hard street rider though. I'm buying my friends ody vermont 28t for 5 bucks :D

Just rotate it to the next hole. And bring your gearing up to 28-10. Then you'll have no more problems.

Oh no you didn't. Animal sprockets suck ass, should've gotten an Odyssey or Tree. Or bought my 28t Primo. That piece of crap will crack in half way easier.

Get a United Squad 2008 sprocket in 28t. Looks similar but a bit stronger, and it's sooo good.
