2021 Mongoose Legion L40

When it comes to entry-level BMX bikes, few brands nail it as well as Mongoose – and here is the new L40, which at £279 is right on the money. The L40 comes with a shorter 20.5″ toptube frame using geo borrowed from the team bikes, 8.25″ tall handlebars, a new Mongoose stem, slim padded seat, full Chromoly 3pc cranks with PC pedals, and new Mongoose 2.4″ tyres front and rear. Complete with 25:9 gearing and a gyro, this thing is set!
Choose from a couple of new colour options as well – you’ve got satin black with colour hits on the custom saddle, or deep purple. Either way, at this price this is one of the best BMX bikes you can buy for skateparks, dirt jumping, and street.
