Nukeproof: The Kids Are Alright

What a time to be a mountain bike youth. With ever increasing access to incredible trails, improving product designed specifically for younger folk and a supportive community to encourage progression. It’s almost certain that the new generation of youth coming through will enjoy opportunities that previous generations could only dream of. Be the result a World Cup racer, Slopestyle master or simply another person enjoying riding bikes, the next generation looks to have an exciting future. If you are fortunate to grow up in a Mountain Bike Mecca like the Tweed Valley, Scotland, then you have some world class facilities on your doorstep. Not just the home to some of the UK’s finest trails and largest trail centre, but with club and education network that supports riding and pushing boundaries and creating next level opportunities. Dirt school is one of the Tweed Valley's more established mountain bike schools. Designed to introduce riders as young as 7 years old to world and opportunity of mountain biking. The school aims to equip youths with the skills to ride faster, safer and explore more of what is on offer in the valley. Uniquely, Dirt Schools association with BASE College gives riders the opportunity to go from preschool age right through. BASE College offers students the chance to earn a SCQF Level 6 qualification and learn about the sport from the very best. Most importantly, the school allows riders to meet likeminded friends and enjoy the amazing trails on the doorstep. Nukeproof is proud of its association with Dirt School through Performance Coach at BASE and EWS Superstar Innes Graham. As a former student Innes is now back coaching the next generation. He is joined by the Tweed Valleys guides and Dirt School coach Fi Berry (also on a Mega). Earlier this year we asked Innes and Fi to handpicked three stars of Dirt School to showcase the Nukeproof youth range of Cub-Scouts bikes, Nukeproof Blackline Ridewear and Urchin Components. For 2022 and into 2023 Nukeproof youth ranges keeps on growing (mainly thanks to our athletes and staff’s demands for product for their own kids). Nukeproof now boast the Cub-Scout range of 3 trail honed hardtails (20”, 24” & 26” wheel sizes). These all-feature lightweight aluminium frames with optimised geometry and equipped with quality youth specific components to allow riders to enjoy their time off road. It’s not just bikes, Nukeproof also now offer a full range of Youth componentry (the Urchin Range of pedals, bars, saddles, grips) and youth specific Ridewear and clothing. Our Blackline youth kit includes mini me versions of the award-winning Blackline Trail pants, shorts, gloves & jerseys. It’s safe to say by the talent on display on the trails and at the Dirt School academy, the kids are alright. Huge thanks to Innes, Fi, Noah, Evan and Evie.
