The FRED265 Kids Downhill Bike fits riders from approx. 1.45 m height, offers 160 mm travel and is designed as a Mini Mullet with 27.5" front and 26" rear.
FRED is a bike for kids designed from the ground up for downhill use. The geometry with the 63er steering angle, low bottom bracket and the plushe but still jumpfreudige rear end with kinematics specially developed for low body weights appeals to young racers in the Junior DH series such as the IXS Rookies Cup and Bikepark Shredder.
As usual with VPACE, attention was also paid to the weight. The FRED265 weighs approx. 13.6 kg - and that with Bomb Proof full equipment. The progressive geometry, the well thought-out equipment and the special kinematics make the FRED definitely unique.
FRED – made for SHRED!
What FRED can do
FRED is probably the most consistent gravity bike currently available for kids. With its full-throttle geometry, top equipment and relatively low weight, FRED is the ideal bike for young shredders.
FRED265 fits from 1.45 m, was designed as a Mini Mullet around a 27.5 front wheel and a 26" rear wheel and offers smooth 160 mm travel at both ends.
Range of use
The FRED265 Kids Downhill Bike corresponds to a mountain bike of category 5. Bikes of this category can be used on very rough and partly blocky terrain, on difficult tracks that require a good riding technique, as well as designated sports and bike parks (occasionally). Jumps and drops can occur here up to a maximum height of 122 cm. The FRED265 children's bike is designed for a rider weight of max. 50 kg.
Bikes in this category should be checked intensively for possible damage after every ride due to the higher loads.
