Finally a kid’s bike for the junior rippers that ride more than a bike park. Our Ripcord is a dedicated 24” wheel kids bike designed to handle any trail condition. The Ripcord is designed to be comfortable for pedaling with size appropriate front end height, and confident handling from a 67 degree head angle and short 381mm chainstay. Strong enough for intermediate level bike park riding, and light enough for XC journeys; the Ripcord is one kid’s bike that does it all. We have based the design around a 100mm travel 26” fork and a standard size rear shock so you have plenty of upgrade options down the road. Despite the compatiblity with high end 26” forks, the bike has geometry specifically tailored for 24” wheels and will not accomodate other wheel sizes.
TRANSITION RIDE IMPRESSIONS
Everyone at Transition has been excited to get out and ride the Ripcord, but it turns out we are all too big. The Ripcord is a kids bike designed for versatility. We had seen a lot of entry level kids bikes and a lot of kids downhill bikes, but we felt the market was lacking a high quality 24” wheel model suited to regular trail riding. We designed the Ripcord as a kids all mountain bike, scaled down from adult size 140-160mm bikes. The Ripcord has a low standover and handlebar height, and a short chainstay length for comfortable handling. The bike uses a 100mm travel 26” wheel air fork with 100mm of rear travel from a standard size air shock for easy setup changes and upgrades down the road.
