Another collaboration with the mighty Lil Shredder, a race ready enduro machine born of necessity on the black runs of Whistler. A bike fast enough, plush enough, and responsive enough to run back to back all summer long. This phenomenal machine is the peak of kids' performance bikes and the history of riders that have played a part of the bikes development is beyond comparison.
The HX24 uses a combination of 6061 and 6066 tubing to give the best possible stiffness to weight ratio. Frame components are fully CNC’d, single pivot suspension kinematics giving predictable and durable performance. Progressive geometry combines with the world's best aluminum frame maker, the HX24 is clean, simple and proven. It’s all hidden in the detail; stealth dropper post ready, ISCG tabs & a 4 bearing pivot.
Out of the box the bike comes setup in the 4 “ travel position, a fantastic and appropriate trail rig. But drop the rear shock mount into the 5” position, and see the headtube slacken by 1.5 degree, bb drop and turn the bike into a descending hooner!
A market leading 1 x11 Shimano clutch equipped drivetrain with a huge gear range. Rapid fire shifters for immediate transitioning, direct mounts cranks, narrow wide chainrings and external bottom bracket for super smooth drive transfer to an immensely capable wheel set. Tubeless ready, double walled rims, CNCd' straight pull hubs on thru axles and running high thread count folding tyres.
Supported by light actuating Shimano hydraulic brakes that provide immediate, powerful braking no matter the conditions and a proven 120mm travel RST fork specifically chosen to complement the geometry of the bike. The Hellion X24 is the bike that showed that kids can do everything that adults can do, if they have the right tools.
