Vans Big Ripper 29"
When we launched the world’s first 29” BMX bike, the Big Ripper in 2009, it literally took the retro BMX world by storm. Over the years, the Big Ripper has gone on to become the #1 bike in the Bike Life scene. Now the Big Ripper is taking another step forward with the new Vans Big Ripper. This limited-edition, individually numbered bike comes equipped with Vans x Cult tires and grips, a Vans padset, and a unique plume, red & white colorway guaranteed to turn heads. Southern California-based Vans has been at the forefront of action sports footwear and apparel since 1966. The brand has deep roots in BMX and has sponsored top riders, produced countless BMX races and events, and has always presented the sport in the most authentic way possible. To add to this Big Ripper collab, Vans created the Vans x SE Bikes Big Ripper shoes. With reflective checkerboard print, signature rubber waffle outsoles, and Big Ripper sidewall art, these shoes are definitely a must-have. When you combine the most popular bike in Bike Life with Vans, you are truly a Big Ripper. Limit one per customer.

This bike is slick to ride and an eye catcher, being 53 and having the ability to kick around this bike is a pleasure.
I am patiently waiting for the Galveston ride out in August!!!
The bike is a super smooth ride. It's my sunny day only ride.
Lucky enough to score on of these, being a Vans sneakerhead makes this more fun.How donI find out what # I have?
This Bike is sick!!! My local bike shop hooked me up once again with my second Vans Ripper. I will be loyal to that shop till the day I die. Bike Life is all I can say, I love this color scheme, got the kicks to match. Awesome bike, I stopped with the road bikes and now a SE Rider for life
Big LU from Carson
Was able to purchase #21 , nice color scheme and always a fan of Vans and pk rippers . Decent price for what you get . Not worth it on a black market price point by any means , ball burnished is better having owned both .
