WHERE TO BUY  // MSRP $269.99*

The Piston is basically the same as the Lowdown with a little extra kick – it has a fully sealed rear hub with 5 sealed bearings used on many of our higher end bikes.  It has the essentials you need to get started in BMX, cruise the neighborhoods, or tear down the trails to your local fishing hole. This bike delivers trusted dealer level quality at big retailer prices.

The Piston complete has a neutral geometry making it incredibly easy to ride and learn your first tricks. The fat seat gives it a comfortable ride and the 25-9 microdrive keeps you looking like a pro. When your skills advance and you are ready to step it up from the Piston, use our Frame Upgrade program and get pro level products for a fraction of the cost. That’s the Eastern promise and our commitment to Eastern riders everywhere. (Rust and/or oxidation is part of the normal wear and eventual appearance of “rawed”, “phosphate”, or “translucent finishes”.)
