Go faster, handle harder, enjoy more.
Put all the engineering packed into our remarkable Seeker 16 to work. Let your kids enjoy finding the edge with a geometry that is stable yet responsive, controllable yet fast. Watch them reap the benefits from the unerring drive and immediate pick up of our four bearing cassette hub as they climb out of the saddle. Envy the lines they stick that you wouldn't pick thanks to the 2.25 balloon mud tyres that let them coast over bumps and jumps you know'd you'd feel. See their confidence grow with the Ritchey Logic controls and powerful, easy pull short lever V brakes. Let them hammer the trails in whatever conditions the weather throws - and revel in the fact that the bearings in the hubs, the pedals, the bottom bracket and the headset are all sealed cartridges, the greaseless all aluminium drive train and frames just needs a rinse and if they blow on the ride you only have to carry a bike that weighs in at just 5.8kgs.
Performance, durability and cheap, pick two.
Producing a bike that performs to inspire but at a justifiable cost is a balancing act when it may be enjoyed by your child for only a couple of years. We work tirelessly to garner value with every penny we invest and where possible we only invest in value that can be retained. Our finish is brushed aluminium because it carries the scratches and dings beautifully. It's gender neutral too, so it can be passed on to both boys and girls. We exceptionally rarely have new model years, preferring to refine instead so that when a bike is passed on it's still current. We invest in weight saving components that others don't (hollow axles, external cup bottom brackets, CNC'd aluminium hubs, butted tubes, cold forged cranks) as it allows us to use high performance and incredibly durable components that others won't (cartridge bearings in all moving parts, our forged sliding drop outs, a 4-bearing cassette hub, an all aluminium drive train) and this is how we end up with bikes that are not only market leading by weight and by function, but also promise the durability that mean they can benefit the second or third owner as much as they did the first.
