Go faster, handle harder, enjoy more.

Our remarkable Seeker X16 is about how best to support the ever increasing capability of our young riders. The tweaked geometry delivers stability on the downs and the most efficient position for driving the pedals on the ups. An all aluminum frame set of course, brand new Ritchey bars that provide more cockpit space, and the awesome, bump-soaking 2.25" Vee Crown Gems running on our market leading, 4 cartridge bearing cassette hub.

The upgrade delivered by the Seeker X16 is the Promax hydraulic discs. Super smooth, light actuation with awesome braking power. Removing the concern of break pads on wet muddy rims, means your kid can shred the trails with absolute confidence no matter the conditions. Some will consider this bike to be overkill, but we think it's about greater control at greater intensity. 

 

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 aluminum 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 aluminum 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 aluminum 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.

Deserves to be a cult classic.

This is the bike I should have bought a year ago. It's insanely light (compare it to the very similar Commencal model), confidence inspiring for my son and has some details I really didn't expect, particularly the engagement of the hub. The value is on the money too, given that some adult frames cost more than this entire mini trail bike. You could pay more for the through axles etc. but I think this makes a good step up, particularly for kids who are too short for a 20".

Seeker x16

Built the bike last night, really easy to do. Only downsides the rear brake cable routing is poorly thought out in my opinion . The cable routing should be internal so that the cable can cross the top tube and exit on the right hand side so that the cable run can be better managed. I was also a bit put out that no frame protection stickers were including to help negate frame rub, cost would be pence to include in the box. Only needed to use 3. Also the plastic brake cable retaining clips are not worth including, zip tie the brake lines in place because the plastic clip at the top tube won’t hold the brake line in-place.

I thought the seat want the best of quality, the tyres were poorly fitted to the rims and had to be deflated and refit. The supplied Allen keys were poor quality. I used a quality set of Allen keys to build it and note that some of the metal and coating on the bolts were a bit soft in comparison to larger bikes quality fastenings. Wheel set was relatively true. Just my initial thoughts. Bike hasn’t been ridden yet.
