Nukeproof Announces New 20-26″ Cub-Scout Kid’s Bike Range

Hey kids, we can ride 26″ mountain bikes together!

Taking inspiration from Nukeproof’s Scout hardtail model, the brand announced its Cub Scout range today, with bikes designed for kids who shred with three wheel sizes (20″, 24″ & 26″). Read on for the details below:

In-line with most new products to come from Nukeproof; the addition of the kid’s bike range was mostly inspired by our own selfish needs. Lots of our staff and racers such as Nigel Page & Sam Hill, now have young families and there is nothing better than getting the kids out on the trails to enjoy two wheels with Mum and Dad.

The new Cub-Scout is not just another kids bike: taking inspiration from our award-winning Scout adult hardtail range. No matter the wheel size; the Cub-Scout has been designed from the ground-up as a proper mini-hardtail bike. Designed to allow kids enjoy shredding off road, learn the ropes of riding, inspire confidence and act as the perfect platform for progression. Developed and tested with the help of our own kids, we have created a class leading lightweight kids bike range to inspire and nurture budding future World Cup or EWS winners!

The new range of Cub-Scout Hardtails are available in 20”, 24” or 26” options; meaning that there should be a bike to suit kids of all sizes from aged 5 and up. Each bike features a lightweight custom butted 6061 Alloy frame with bang up to date long, low and slack kids specific geometry.

Proper fit and function of components is essential for kids bikes because adult components are not optimised for smaller people. We took the time to test and develop our own or work with our partners to select the best kids-specific components we could find on the market. In-line with all Nukeproof bikes the components chosen were all tested, tuned and optimised to perform how we wanted them too, to ensure that our riders get the best on-trail experience possible. Lastly the fun part, testing with our very own small human trail shredders to ensure that all bikes are dialled in for you.

We’re stoked to introduce the new range, paving the way for the next generation of Nukeproof trail shredders. Bikes will be available through all authorised Nukeproof retails from 14th February 2020.
