  • Vitus Nucleus 26 Youth Bike

    This 26”-wheeled Nucleus takes its inspiration from the high-end MTBs that Vitus offer, in a smaller and more manageable package for younger riders. Designed and build to help boost your kids riding skills and confidence as they transition from riding the streets to the trails.

    Spinner 300 Air Suspension Forks with 100mm Travel

    Vitus has equipped this mountain-tamer with Spinner 300 Air suspension forks at the front with 100mm of travel, this enables you to set the forks responsiveness to your child’s weight, so they get the maximum travel from the forks for greater comfort, control and a smoother ride. And, it features a lock out to limit the fork travel when climbing for greater efficiency and less wasted energy.

    Shimano Altus 9-Speed Drivetrain and Tektro Hydraulic Disc Brakes

    Powered on by a Shimano Altus 9-Speed drivetrain for excellent speeds, while Tektro hydraulic disc brakes and super-grippy Schwalbe Rocket Ron tyres enhance control of momentum and ensure grip in all conditions.
