PRESS RELEASE

Rocky Mountain Launches the Reaper

The all-new Reaper packs the same aggressive trail performance found in our full suspension bikes like the Altitude and Instinct, but in a smaller package for young rippers.

Rocky Mountain Launches the Reaper

The Reaper can tear up single track, smash technical descents, and slay bike park laps all day long. And, because we know that kids grow (and have younger siblings), the reaper is easily convertible from 24" wheels to 26" wheels and vice versa. We also have the new Reaper 27.5 option, to keep your kids shredding longer!

 

Rocky Mountain Reaper Highlights

  • The RIDE-9 adjustment system allows riders to quickly fine-tune their geometry and suspension with a pair of Allen keys.
  • Increased anti-squat for better pedaling efficiency
  • Size Specific Tune ensures that riders of all sizes get the appropriate rear shock tune - our design team creates custom shock tunes base on field testing feedback, and adjust the tune of each shock for specific frame sizes
  • Bearings at all pivots, including at the lower shock mount (still compatible with aftermarket shocks)
  • Blind pivots maximize rider heel clearance at the chainstay
  • 1x optimized design with wider main pivot
  • Sizes: 27.5, 26, and 24 inch wheels
  • Weight: Reaper 27.5: 13.65 kg (30.1 lbs), Reaper 26: 12.69 kg (28.0 lbs), Reaper 24: 12.59 kg (27.7 lbs)

From 24 to 26 and Back Again

The Reaper 24 is easily compatible with 26" wheels and vice versa. That means that your kid can start with 24" wheels and upgrade to 26" as they grow, staying on the same frame longer.

All-new Reaper 27.5

The Reaper 27.5 is available for the kids that are ready to take their first pedal strokes on a 27.5" wheel bike and are still looking for a cool bike with a killer name.

Updated RIDE-9

Our RIDE-9 technology provides a wide range of geometry and suspension adjustability; it has been moved into the link for lighter, narrower packaging.
