Vitus Nucleus 24 Youth Hardtail BikeThe Vitus Nucleus 24 is a hardtail aimed at youth riders and juniors breaking into the sport of MTB riding. Its design takes inspiration and is based on the award-winning adult Nucleus model. It features a long, low and slack geometry, confidence inspiring components and is ideal for XC, trail and bikepark riding. Box Four 1×8-Speed Drivetrain and Spinner Grind Suspension Built around a lightweight aluminium frame and an age appropriate wheel size but featuring many of the performance focused components found on the adults’ bikes. Vitus has upgraded this bike for 2021 with the excellent BOX Four 8 groupset, featuring a clutch activated rear mech, and a 1X chainring. This 1 x 8 speed system paired with the 30T ring and 11-34 cassette is the perfect setup to start ripping the trails. Up front the suspension is taken care of by a Spinner Grind 65mm travel air suspension fork with lock out that’s also adjustable for rider weight. Tektro Hydraulic Disc Brakes Tektro hydraulic disc brakes with a 160mm rotor’s offer great stopping power and adjustable reach levers. Vitus wheels featuring Schwalbe Rocket Ron 2.1″ tyres, and an all-aluminium finishing kit give the bike a look even parents are envious of.
