25 pounds. 120mm travel. Boost front/rear. NOTHING to modify because we’ve made it super light and built correctly right out of the box for you. The last thing your kid wants to do is ride with an extra 5 pounds if they plan on riding uphill, and a 27.5" wheel bike is just too unwieldy coming off a 24" bike.
We've created the ultimate trail shredding machine with our new Maxwell 26. Dominate the trails going both down and up with this amazing bike - the name Maxwell comes from Maxwell trail in Fort Collins, Colorado where we love to ride. It’s a super technical, steep and rocky trail but the reward down is so nice. It can be done on a hardtail, but it is so much more fun on a full suspension bike! If your local riding area requires climbing for the really good stuff going back down, then the Maxwell 26 is your next bike.
Our new Maxwell 26 comes in at 25 pounds with best in category components. Attention to detail with top shelf level components include Stans Crest MK3 wheels, 85 gram ultralight rotors, an extended range 11-42 cassette and 152 mm direct-mount cranks with aluminum spindle typically found on much more expensive bikes. We’ve built the best bike with the best components so you can spend more time riding and less time pushing uphill.
This is a fun, playful, super flickable bike for all types of mountain bike riding. The Maxwell 26 is built for next level riding with some key geometry features designed specifically for riders of young and old! The Maxwell 26 features a Horst link suspension design which is active under braking and very plush over both small bumps and bigger hits. Short yet stable 420mm chainstay length and a 1082mm wheelbase is the perfect 26" trail bike for riders coming off a 24" bike.
ALL level bike builds get our new lightweight 152mm Trailcraft Cycles aluminum spindle direct mount cranks with your choice of 26, 28, 30 or 32 tooth narrow-wide style chainring. Choose 26 or 28 tooth if you are riding steep hills and lung burning mountain climbs. Lower elevation levels or flat areas are fine with a 30 or 32 tooth chainring selection. Most adult bikes don't even offer this level of configuration out of the box!
