Impossibly light, the Mad 6 lets little kids crank up hills, once impossible, and ride longer, more technically advanced single tracks. Now they can keep up with the bigger kids or the rest of the family, instead of being left behind. The dual suspension, rather than tokenism, works seemlessly– specifically engineered and tuned for pint sized riders weighing less than 50kg. This gives kids substantially more control and smooth X-C traction over bumps and making for a much more comfortable ride.
Extremely agile, the Mad 6 can navigate technical single track at speed with ease and with its full carbon construction frame, its tough enough to withstand riding terrains a little kid can throw at it. Perfectly designed for X-C racing, the MAD 6 gives little riders who are looking for a podium finish an unfair advantage!
CarbonXScycles uses the latest in 3D design CAD combined with the newest materials and build techniques. Carbon frames from one of the worlds top frame builders combined with high spec components and custom engineered special parts such as a lightweight crankset. CarbonXScycles premium performance bikes are meticulously constructed by hand, one at a time, to each individual order. Frame geometry is set to suit the size of your childand can be continually adjusted to suit a riders increasing height and weight.
The design and build philosophy behind the “MAD 6” is “build for purpose”, rather than a downsizing of an adult bicycle to suit a child and then pay the penalty in weight and performance. “Putting 15psi in a Rock Shox SID® does not convert it to a suitable fork for kids”. Bicycle weight kills performance, we know that as adults, so this has been a key design feature.The smallest details have not been overlooked to increase strength and reduce weight. Suspension has been purpose designed and built to function smoothly for lightweight riders. Many components have been custom produced down to details such as a custom titanium shock hardware. The custom built carbon wheels are no compromise, show stoppers.
Given that the riders of our bikes have a maximum weight of 35kg and a very low centre of gravity, the braking system employed is a front and rear disc brake. The bikes are fitted with the powerful “Shimano XT” hydraulic disk brakes, which we consider to be the most solid, reliable, easy to adjust units available. Pure two finger performance – even for a 5 year old. Whilst combined technology and design has produced a bike bred for racing, it is also perfectly at home being ridden to school each day or out with family and friends on bike paths.
