Tired of getting dream-crushed while shopping for the next trail bike?

The Maxwell 275 is a next level full suspension bike for the 5' to 5'6" crowd.  We packed the Maxwell 275 full of current features including stealth internal dropper routing and boost front/rear spacing.

Our Maxwell 275 complete bikes are weighing in lower than many carbon bikes on the market thanks to a 7000 series alloy frame.  Our Maxwell 275 offers aluminum durability at lighter than carbon complete bike weights thanks to to an amazing parts spec.

Our PRO and ELITE level build set up tubeless is just 27.5 pounds with a dropper post! Special Build level bikes are just over 28 pounds with pedals ready to ride!

    Perfect. Purchased the 26+ with tubeless 26″ tires and the Deore built kit. My 11 year old son is 70 lbs. and 4′-8″ tall. It fits him well and with the option to add the 27.5″ tires he will be riding this bike through high school. We are in Hawaii and ride mostly single track in the mountains. This lightweight bike allows him to easily peddle up steep climbs and with the full suspension his skills have greatly improved on the challenging downhill runs. Areas that he once had to walk down with his previous bike he is now safely flying down those sections. Expensive? No, if you consider the quality of the bike and components and that this bike will last for many many years. Brett and his wife run this small mom & pop company and provide incredible service. The shipping company damaged the chain ring so Brett shipped a new one the next day. I am happy to support local businesses that provide great customer support. My younger son will be getting one for Christmas this year and I am pretty sure a few of my friends children will as well. After one of my friends took his son on a ride with us he immediately saw the difference that the Maxwell 26+ made compared to his kids store bought mountain bike. There was no comparison. Buy quality and enjoy riding with your children.
