The Ripcord complete bike is a powerhouse of a kids bike with a ton of features and no need to upgrade anything on the bike. RockShox air suspension front and rear makes it super easy to set up and change as the rider grows. SRAM NX 11 speed drivetrain is simple and easy to use with only one trigger shifter and has a huge gear range of 11-42t to help kids get up the steepest of hills. Shimano hydraulic MT400 disc brakes are effortless to use and have excellent lever reach adjustment for smaller hands. Tires are everything and we spare no expense to give the Ripcord the same Maxxis Minion tires that we spec on all our adult bikes for superior traction and braking.
