With over 40 years of production, the PK Ripper is the most famous and longest-running bike in the history of BMX. It honors a legacy both innovative and timeless. This year we collaborated with Vans, the original action sports footwear and apparel company, to produce the first-ever Vans PK Ripper, and we also made a limited-edition 16” version of the bike named the LiL’ Ripper. This means that even the youngsters have a chance to ride like the legends. The Vans LiL’ Ripper features details like a Vans checkerboard padset and Vans ‘66 valve caps.
Vans was founded in 1966 in Anaheim, CA, and the brand is embedded in BMX culture. Many top riders throughout the history of the sport including “PK” himself, Perry Kramer, have worn Vans shoes and ridden in many Vans-sponsored BMX races and events.
