Seeker X16

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 aluminium 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 aluminium 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 aluminium 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 aluminium 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.

ASSEMBLY INSTRUCTIONS:

Your bike will arrive carefully packaged and boxed with both wheels attached. The handlebar will be ziptied to the top tube, simply remove the bars and all packaging and attach to the stem. Then simply add the pedals. You will be emailed an unboxing video with full instructions. Please retain your manual.

Your child will thank you for the lightweight construction.

An upgrade from the Big Foot 12 (which itself is brilliant a balance bike) for my daughter who got straight on, smiling, pedaling, no messing.

The pedals & handlebar were simple to assemble out of the box, tools supplied.

The seat has quick release, great for setting riding positions on the fly.

Drive via belt, maintenance and oil free. Disc brakes are hydraulic and stop well. Good design & lightweight construction, brilliant.

Only gripe I have - clips that retain the rear brake pipe could be redesigned, I have replaced for tie wraps!! A route through the frame like other models perhaps?

The box was open when delivered & a couple of minor defects were found; returned for a replacement. Communication & customer service 5 star, the replacement was received within a couple of days.

The bike has been used daily for a few weeks now with no issues.

Will defiantly consider the brand for the next upgrade.

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".
