The Nucleus 24 Youth features a durable and lightweight alloy frame that incorporates modern low, long and slack trail-riding geometry. It's equipped with a Box Four 1x8-Speed groupset, 60mm-travel Suntour suspension and powerful Tektro hydraulic disc brakes, giving it a wide-gear range for superb pedalling efficiency and reliable all-weather braking power.
The new kid on the block. Influenced greatly by all the good stuff Vitus learned when creating the award-winning adult Nucleus, this youth platform brings all the same trail riding performance and hardtail fun to the next generation.
At its core, the lightweight aluminium frame utilises the familiar Vitus progressive geometry that promotes stability, control and confidence - everything you want in a bike for a smaller rider.
Helping your youngster cruise the trails and smooth out the bumps is a quality Suntour XCR air suspension fork that’s adjustable to suit their weight and can be quickly locked out for riding on harder surfaces. Hydraulic disc brakes with adjustable levers ensure that powerful stopping performance can be achieved by small hands and the 2.2” Maxxis tyres deliver heaps of traction, so there will be no stopping them whatever the weather. A single front chainring keeps the maintenance low and the smooth Box Four gears include a clutch derailleur that stops the chain from bouncing or coming off. For them, that means a smoother, quieter ride and for you, that means no more greasy fingers at the trailside.
Staying true to the Nucleus vibe and personality, this Kids platform delivers everything that a young rider needs to experience the buzz, the thrill and the fun of riding a mountain bike. Ride with them, shred the trails with them and watch them grow in confidence, empowered by the capability that comes as standard with the Nucleus heritage.
