Product Description

The ‘in-betweener’ wheel size may well be the current hot trend in the mtb world, but we’ve been thinking outside of the box somewhat; adopting it as the ideal basis for an alternate format ‘jack-of-all-trades’ dropbar bike aimed at smaller/younger riders.

Labelled a 20” the Caribou Jnr actually utilises a 19” trials rim and tyre combo, the large volume 2.5” Maxxis Creepy Crawler tyres blowing up to a similar outer diameter as a conventional 20” wheel/tyre combo (hence 20”). Seeing as they’re a trials tyre, the Creepy Crawlers deliver big time in the grip department, their soft 42a rubber compound providing grip in all manner of situations. In fact, with the wide-range 1x7sp gearing and grippy tyres, it should be almost possible to ride up walls!

We’ve sweated all the details from a junior-sized perspective - light action, easy-function Revoshift (“Twist Shift”) shifter, proportionally sized crankarms and reach-adjust brake levers. 4.0” tyres would’ve been cool but we’d not want to subject the ultra-wide q-factors that come with the associated cranks to a child still in growing. For this reason the Caribou Jnr run a standard 68mm BB shell, conventional crankarm q-factor and manageable 2.5” tyres.

Of all the kids bikes in the world it might not be the quickest, lightest or most practical in all circumstances, granted, but its amongst the most rugged and most fun. Awesome family adventures start here.
