Trail riding, Park riding, desert riding, sweet sweet bermed loam riding - this one does it all at a category leading weight. Stans recently sent us a shipment of 28 spoke 24" Crest MK3 hoops with their standard red decals. The wrong ones! Instead of turning them around and sending them back, we thought it would be super cool to do some color matched decals on these MK3's and offer some "Limited Edition" builds at a price which splits our special build and Pro Deore level bikes.
The outcome is an amazing 24" full suspension bike. We spec'd the Vee Crown Jewel 2.25" tires on this one for those who like to get extra rowdy, and we spec the superlight Ashima 85 gram rotors just like our PRO level builds to help keep the weight down.
We spec the absolute best components on the Maxwell 24, and with component technology improving we are able to drop even more weight from our bike. The 2018 Maxwell 24 Limited Edition gets a custom Stans 28 spoke Crest MK3 wheelset to reduce even more rotational weight at just 1360 grams. We spec an 11-42 Sunrace cassette with a 42 tooth largest cog to help maintain low weight. Additionally, we've launched our new Trailcraft direct mount cranks with aluminum spindle which sheds over 100 grams from our previous crank. Our 28 tooth narrow-wide style chainring mated with the 42t largest cog our back will allow your young ride to ride just about anything. This is the best component spec in its category for a kids mountain bike!
We have a super limited number of color matched wheels allocated to the Maxwell 24 builds, so don't miss this one!
Just 25.8 pounds. Fits riders with a 25” minimum stand over height.
100mm front and rear travel in weights starting at just 24 pounds. The Maxwell 24 has it all - high performance geometry, lightweight components and three cool color options to choose! We've added internal stealth dropper routing on the seat tube so you can add your favorite dropper and not worry about a loop of cable housing. Super clean internal cable routing for the rear derailleur using full cable housing from shifter to rear derailleur with two routing options.
The Maxwell 24 complete bikes are spec'd with RST Snyper 24 100mm forks for more of an all around Trail build to keep bike weight as low as possible and axle to crown low. 26" forks are cool, but we are getting 26" performance and travel at lower 24" axle to crown heights with the new Snyper which is specifically designed for kids lower rider weights.
For wheels we spec a high end Stans Crest MK3 24" 24-spoke rim laced to a 12x135mm superlight hub in the rear, and 15x100mm superlight hub in the front. Schwalbe Rocket Ron Performance 450 gram tires round out the wheel package and to keep rotational weight as low as possible, we spec Ashima 85 gram 160mm rotors.
We have three component level choices, the budget friendly Shimano Deore M6000 10-speed package in a 1x10 drivetrain setup, or for maximum weight savings and high performance level we offer a Shimano XT M8000 1x11 package consisting of Shimano M8000 XT brakes, shifter, rear derailleur, and 11-42 cassette.
