Taking its inspiration from Nukeproof’s full sized, award-winning Scout bikes, the Cub-Scout 26 Sport is a kid's hardtail mountain bike that’s ready for the toughest trails. Fun to ride, tough and perfectly sized for smaller riders, it enables younger cyclists to confidently push their limits. This is because it comes kitted out with X-Fusion 100mm travel suspension forks, powerful Tektro disc brakes and a wide range Box Components 1x8 drivetrain.

This 20" kids bike has been designed from the ground-up as a proper mini-mountain bike. It features a hard-wearing custom-butted and hydroformed alloy frameset, which makes it perfect for kids to learn the ropes of riding on. Nukeproof has also equipped this model with a range of kids specific components to inspire confidence on the trails and act as the ideal platform for progression. Coming equipped with up-to-date long, low and slack kids geometry, this ride is available in 20”, 24” or 26” options; meaning that there should be a bike to suit kids of all sizes from aged 5 and up.

Developed and tested with the help of Nukeproof's own children, Nukeproof has created a class-leading lightweight kids bike range to inspire and nurture budding future World Cup or EWS winners.


Proper fit and function of components are essential for kids bikes because adult components are not optimized for smaller people. To ensure that these bikes fit and function perfectly, Nukeproof took the time to test and develop its own or work with its partners to select the best kids-specific components they could find on the market.
