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.

Seeker X16

5 stars: Excellent quality and very nicely engineered for young riders!

Hint: One might want to use really low pressure when riding trails - we currently use 10/12 psi (f/r) for a ~20kg rider - to achieve good damping by the big tires. For riding to school (tarmac) we use 30/30

Awesome Bike - The little man loves it

Really impressed with the bike straight out of the box. Our 3 year old was so excited he took it up our driveway and came back down pedalling straight away (I will add he has a balance bike, electric balance bike and Peewee 50 so balance and braking is already good). After 20 mins he was riding around the entire driveway and over his little bike jumps. Such a confidence inspiring design and very smooth rolling.

The Seeker X16 proved to be the perfect choice for our life on the farm as we have no flat concrete to learn on but the wide tyres make rolling on the gravel a breeze. I'd highly recommend this bike for anyone looking for the rolls royce of kids mountain bikes. It's worth the asking price.

Perfect Bike

My son loved this bike (just as much as I do)!

Perfect fit and handling, superb braking power, a clean belt instead of a dirty chain….and most important; It looks awesome!!!

Couldn't be happier

I wish that bikes were this good when I was growing up. Geometry is fantastic, really stable and handles perfectly. Everything is really well thought out, from the brake lever sizing to the tire spec, my son absolutely loves it and what's more, his little brother will get to enjoy it too. It's not an inexpensive bike but the used value is really high because they are such great products that they are sought after, so once my boys have outgrown this one they can sell it an put the money towards their next Early Rider bikes.
