Product: 2017 United KL40 Complete Bike

With the introduction of Kye Forte’s signature KF22 last month, I was wondering if the 20″ KL40 would still be a part of United’s line of completes. The release of United’s full 2017 complete range answered that question, and I’m happy that it’s yes. The KL40 is the perfect starter bike for someone looking to get into riding trails. While most completes these days are aimed at the streets, the KL40 is specced with a longer 21″ top tube, trails friendly geometry and United’s aggressive Indirect tyres. Even the two muted colorways it comes in are what you would expect from a trails bike. A kid could literally pick up one of these, head on down to the woods and blend right on in with the locals. With a retail price of just $399.99, a bike like this could be just what our aging scene needs to bring in some young blood. So next time you have a kid ask you what would be a good bike for riding trails, point him in the direction of a KL40. Who knows, you may end up with a new digging buddy out of the deal! The 2017 KL40s are landing at United Dealers worldwide right now. Hit their STOCKIST PAGE to find the one closest to you.
