What We Like

  • The tires are of decent quality.
  • The chainstay is one of the longest in this segment and provides control to newer riders.
  • The tall bottom bracket provides for a snappy ride.

What We Don't Like

  • The bike's front end is made up of Chromoly, but the back end is made up of cheaper high tensile steel that tends to bend after prolonged use.
  • Bars are made of high tensile steel only.
  • Not made for intermediate to advanced level bikers.
  • Comes with single-walled forks.

Final Verdict:

The 2022 Gateway BMX bike by Cult is a good bike if you are a beginner. Due to its mellow frame geometry and single-walled forks, it is best suited for more stable street style riding or bumpy dirt riding but can not take the stress of a park riding circuit.

2. 2022 DEVOTION / black Cult BMX bike

GATEWAY / raw

The 2022 DEVOTION from Cult BMX bikes comes in a panzer white, a calvary blue and a black colour options. The Cult went all out on this BMX bike, providing 100% Chromoly frame and bars; they also have upgraded the rims from single to double walled Cult mach rims that provide unmatched strength and durability to the bike.

 The bike features integrated foot pegs that allow the rider to perform some of the advanced stunts. The bike has long 9-inch handlebars and a very long chainstay that makes the bike perfect for fast riding and entry-level use on dirt tracks. However, due to the long chainstay, the bike doesn't feel responsive enough to ride on the streets.

  • It has integrated foot pegs for stunts.
  • Good bike for entry-level BMX bikers.

What We Don't Like

  • The bike is not street specific.
  • The top tube is 21" long and maybe a little high for short riders.
  • The bike can not be taken to ride in BMX park circuits.

Final Verdict:

The 2022 DEVOTION is one of the most premium bikes from the house of Cult bikes. This bike is built to last with a 100% Chromoly body, frame, and double-walled rims. The long chain stay adds to the stability and helps the bike go faster. The tall handlebars allow a dirt rider to ride comfortably.
However, due to the long chain stay, the bike is not appropriately responsive for riding in parks.

4. ACCESS Cult BMX bike

ACCESS / black

Formerly known as Gateway Jr., the ACCESS BMX bike by Cult is built from sturdy hi-tensile steel and a 20" Top Tube length - a great choice for beginners. The standard 25-9T gearing, which is the perfect ratio for all types of riding, and the Cult X Vans tyres underfoot provide the best gripping power.

What We Like

  • The bottom Bracket height is good.
  • The long chainstay combats the weaker geometry and provides some stability.

What We Don't Like

  • The quality of the bike's frame is not very good.
  • Has single-walled rims.
  • The top tube is small and made for smaller riders to get on BMX
  • Has unsealed bearings at the rims and wheels.

Final Verdict:

The ACCESS is one of the most budget-friendly options from Cult, its longer chainstay and higher bottom bracket provide for stability and responsiveness, and this bike is made for an absolute beginner who wants to get started with BMX bikes. The bike is made of high tensile steel and is not as durable as other bikes on this list; it is suited for streets and dirt tracks but not for riding in BMX parks.

Is Cult a good bike brand?

Since they have built up a cult-like following over the past few years, they have become insanely popular. Essentially, they have one of the best reputations in BMX, and we recommend their complete bikes for new riders. Only because they make good quality stuff for a good price.

CONCLUSION

To wrap it up, Cult bikes are good mid-ranged bikes mainly targeted toward entry-level riders who want to enter the world of BMX. The Cult BMX bikes provide decent quality bikes at a good price range, surely they are not suitable for riding in parks and performing heavy stunts due to their geometry, single-walled rims and high-tensile forks, but to combat all of these, Cult bike has the longest chainstays and the highest bottoms brackets in this price range that provide stability and responsiveness to the bike.
