There’s no better way to get young riders motivated than to give them the proper tools for adventure. With a lightweight frame, perfectly sized wheels, and all the latest mountain bike technologies, XtC Jr. 26+ gets them ready to roll.
The XtC Jr. 26+ is built on a lightweight ALUXX aluminum frame with a low stand-over height and geometry designed for smaller bodies. Its specially sized 26-inch wheels come with extra-wide 2.8-inch tires, which add comfort and traction to help boost the confidence of young riders. The soft, cushy tires can be ridden with lower air pressure, giving the bike a smooth ride on rocky, bumpy trails. It also features a lightweight, easy-to-use 1x9 drivetrain, powerful disc brakes, and youth-sized components for added comfort and control.
ALUXX-grade aluminum frame provides a lightweight, purpose-built chassis for aspiring young off-road riders.
Confidence and control
26-inch wheels and high-volume “Plus” size tires create a cushioned off-road ride quality for added control and confidence.
Youth-specific performance components help young riders improve their off-road skills.
Wider than standard yet narrower than fat, plus-size rims and tires hit the sweet spot in grip, stability, and speed, giving you more confidence on technical terrain. Compared to a standard tire you’ll feel grip in places you wouldn’t expect thanks to a bigger contact patch and greater rollover clearance. More air volume allows lower tire pressures which softens bumps and increases float on sand or snow. Whether you’re a novice or an expert, the benefits of plus-size tires and rims will amplify your mountain biking fun.
