Dominate the trails going both down and up on our new Maxwell 24 full suspension trail bike. Here on our home trails of Fort Collins, Colorado there is an awesome trail called Maxwell. It’s a super technical, steep and rocky trail but the reward down is so nice. It can be done on a hardtail, but it is so much more fun on a full suspension bike! If this sounds like the riding in your area where you do have to climb for the good stuff going down, then the Maxwell 24 is your next bike.
Our new 120mm travel front/rear Maxwell 24 has a category leading complete bike weight thanks in part to attention to detail with top shelf level components typically found on much more expensive bikes. We’ve gone even further with weight reduction – 85 gram stem, 180 gram carbon riser bar on the Pro builds, and 160 gram bar on our XC build. The end goal - to build the lightest production 24” full suspension trail bike. Nothing more to modify to make it lighter because we've built your kid the best bike with the best components so you can spend more time riding.
This is a fun, playful, super flickable bike for all types of mountain bike riding. Race it, take it to parks, or just have an awesome bike to trail ride. The Maxwell 24 features a Horst link suspension design which is active under braking and very plush over both small bumps and bigger hits. We spec a proper 100mm travel 24" RST Snyper fork which keeps the front end low so your kid can aggressively climb and descend without having the bars at shoulder height. The short 390mm chainstay length keeps the bike super fun yet stable at speed. Perfect for those manuals and launching whatever trail obstacles need to be conquered! Our Maxwell 24 is internal dropper post compatible and the entire package has been created as the ultimate 24” full suspension trail bike designed to give you more smiles per mile at a ride-ALL-terrain complete bike weight.

Want to go a bit more custom or full custom on this build? Contact us! We are a small family business focused on building the best kids mountain bikes possible. We truly geek out on this stuff, just see our Instagram page for some of what we are doing as well as our custom builds page. We bring our frames in from Taiwan (un-assembled/not built) and we build each bike per order in Fort Collins, Colorado with US labor. Since we don't import "complete bike in box from Asia" like pretty much everyone else does, we maintain a high quality control from installation of headset, bottom bracket, and even putting the derailleur hanger on frames here in the US. You can be proud to tell your kids they have a unique bike which was truly built to order from the frame up!
The 2020 Maxwell 24 has it all - super light weight components and 4 cool colors to choose from! We invite you to custom build your kids dream 24" trail bike!

120mm 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 Rock Shox Reba 120mm forks for more of an all around Trail build to keep bike weight as low as possible the new Snyper which is specifically designed for kids lower rider weights.
