24-Inch (7+ yr. old)
The Reaper packs the same aggressive trail performance found in our full suspension bikes like the Altitude and Instinct, but in a smaller package for young rippers. Don't fear the Reaper. The Reaper can tear up singletrack, smash technical descents, and slay bike park laps all day long. And, because we know that kids grow (and have younger siblings), the Reaper is easily convertible from 24" wheels to 26" wheels and vice versa. - High-performance trail bike for young riders - Can convert to 26" wheels - Air sprung suspension tuned for lightweight riders - High-performance tires - Ride-9 Geometry adjustment tailors bike to suit the rider & terrain FORM alloy FRAME CONSTRUCTION: FORM tubesets utilize premium materials to meet our strict requirements. Each FORM tube that we create is engineered for its specific purpose within the frame, ensuring optimized strength, weight, and ride quality. ABC pivots FRAME CONSTRUCTION: ABC pivots are light and stiff. Unlike other bushings, our patented system controls the contact of the bushing surfaces, reducing stiction and binding. Their angled bushing surfaces increase their relative contact area, optimizing them for compact locations like chainstay pivots. RIDE-9 adjustment system GEOMETRY: The RIDE-9 adjustment system allows riders to quickly fine-tune their geometry and suspension with a pair of Allen keys. Nine configurations are possible thanks to two interlocking chips. Adjust your RIDE-9 position for geometry before considering suspension effects, or variables like air pressure and shock compression. Make gradual, incremental changes, take notes and be methodical. Don't adjust in a hurry before a big ride. Take your time and enjoy the process. Smoothlink suspension SUSPENSION: Smoothlink suspension is efficient yet supple when you're on the pedals and across a wide range of gears. It features a controlled end-stroke and a rate-curve that feels more capable than the travel would suggest. This four-bar suspension design philosophy is centered on ride characteristics; each bike platform we develop balances variables like anti-squat, axle path, chain growth, rate curve, anti-rise, etc. to achieve the legendary Rocky Mountain ride feel.
The Rocky Mountain Vertex Jr 24 is a disc-brake equipped, performance kids’ bike—perfect for getting their first tracks on dirt. Whether they're riding to school or ripping it up on dirt, low weight and great performance are important for younger riders, too. These disc-brake-equipped Vertex kids' bikes are ready to help instill a lifelong love of having fun on two wheels.
