It Started as a Sketch

Inspired by a team trip to Taiwan for Bike Week, Industrial Designer Yann Duez put an idea down on paper. Once the team mocked it up, it was clear: we needed to do this. If road cyclists ride carbon bikes for speed and stamina, so should kids. If mountain bikers need low-friction saddles for rough roads, kids do too. This ridiculously small, totally unique project was just too fun to pass up. And when it came to engineering, the answer was easy: Utilize the same team we’ve trusted to make our top performance bikes, like the Tarmac SL7 and the All-New Stumpjumper.
