SE Racing Ripper and Lil’ Ripper
SE Racing has been THE name in BMX for over 30 years. SE Racing really focuses on BMX (you won’t see a triathlon bike or a hybrid bike with their logo on it). Each year the folks at SE refine single-speed BMX bikes to give kids more fun and better performance.
The Ripper (originally the “PK Ripper”, named for star racer Perry Kramer) is one of the more famous and sought-after racing bikes. The Ripper is still around, and it has been refined over the years for maximum fun and minimum weight (a good value too, now under $330).
Of course older kids have been well-supported by a stable of great racing models from SE. Sometimes it’s hard being the younger kid. The Ripper made little kids in need of a real BMX bike a bit envious.
Now big kids won’t be the only ones who get to have fun with a bike from SE Racing. While big brother rips up the track on his Ripper or Quadangle, a younger brother or sister can shred just as hard on their Lil’ Ripper.
The Lil’ Ripper is a great bike. Well-proportioned, easy to handle, light and tough. Comes with great BMX styling including pads and a number plate, this bike will give junior all the performance he needs.
The Lil’ Ripper is built with a light aluminum frameset along with awesome 16″ aluminum wheels. It has a freewheel with a hand brake just like on bigger bikes, and will still accept training wheels for easy learning.
