SUPURB Bo24+ is a purpose-driven mountain bike – no kickstand mounts, no fender mounts, a spec fit for singletrack and a geometry tailored for kids. Geometry-wise, SUPURB Bikes are designed with a strong focus on weight distribution. With their rather intuitive approach to riding, we observed that kids don’t proactively shift their weight when on a bike. A balanced geometry with a long chainstay and the correspondingly greater load on the front wheel will help on singletrack and when tackling corners. Downhill performance is supported by a 68° head angle, VeeTire 2.35” tires, the air-sprung Manitou Junit Comp fork and strong Tektro brakes with brake lever adjustment.

Bo24+ is available in a single spec and size, but four colors.

Making it easier for kids to earn their turns, the upright seated position helps balancing the – relative to overall body weight and proportions - heavier head and helmet and doesn’t overly stress the neck. SRAM's 1 x 12 speed drivetrain and a short 150 mm crank help with climbing.

The icing on the cake is the addition of 60 mm of remote-adjustable saddle height, turning the Bo24 into the Bo24+. Intensive internal testing has shown that the sweet spot for most fun and number of dropper posts on a bike is one, so we got that perfect.

The science of dropper posts is quite simple, yet effective.

Available now for 1.099 € the Bo24+ was created for riders with approximately 135 cm height and 62 cm inseam.

Revised Pricing:
With the product launch of Bo24+ comes an update in pricing. The smaller Bo16, Bo20 and the non-dropper-version Bo24 will now retail for:
• Bo16: € 649 (previously € 699)
• Bo20: € 799 (previously € 999)
• Bo24: € 899 (previously € 1199)

About SUPURB Bikes:
The company was founded in 2012 by German industry veterans Jürgen Schlender and Sebastian Tegtmeier. Sebastian’s first-born was about to reach the body size to start cycling when Sebastian was searching for a bike that would meet his demands. Back then, the kids' bike market was not large and not offering, what he was looking for. After first sketches and ideas, prototypes were welded and the brainchild turned into an actual brand.

Within the next few years, the portfolio grew and reached high popularity, due to the SUPURB design principles: low weight, good geometry and smart features. In 2018 the brand was acquired by German online retailer bike-components.de, after the project capacities were conflicting with the founders' day jobs.

The legacy continues in the new range of products, with numerous parents and eager test riders at bc. Also, Director of Productmanagement Christoph S. has a strong BMX background and knows his way around small-tire bicycles.

It is truly beneficial to have a BMX background when developing bicycles with small wheel diameters. Pictured is a young version of bc's Director of PM.

 Too bad it is not available in the US. This thing looks way better than the ubiquitous Specialized Rockhoppers and Trek Marlins.

 Yeah this is a slick looking bike, would definitely be on my list if offered in the US. FWIW I just got my 6 YO son a 24" Cleary, the fork and components aren't as nice as this one (also no dropper) but its a real mountain bike and doesn't break the bank.

 Cool looking bikes. Too bad they aren't available here.

But these ARE available here and for impressive sale prices.

 This is a VERY good price for a proper kids bike, especially compared to Spawn bikes (my personal favorite). Too bad we can't get them here. A comparable Spawn is the Yama Jama 24 which is currently 1550+ USD (WITHOUT a dropper). And they sell out frequently.

 Biggest takeaway here--fun climbs from huge to gigantic at an exponential rate as you move from 0 to 1 dropper post per bike, then approaches 0 as you utilize more than one. Tandems would make for an interesting case study

 "Downhill performance is supported by a 68° head angle" 68 is closer to 70 than 65.

 Yes, true for a bike that will be ridden by an adult. A kid however has much less upper body strenght and can't ride an 800 mm bar, which all helps when handling slacker head tube angles. Balancing out benefits that certain geometry tweaks bring and actual rideability with focus on the person riding, is what we designed around.

 My 5 year old’s Vitus 20+ has a 67* head angle now it’s got different tyres on it. These look nice though.

 Hot take but shouldn't they be at least slightly cheaper than an adult bike of similar spec?

 This thing has thru axles, a tapered headset, air fork, dropper post, 1x12 drivetrain, hollow axle crankset, and hydraulic disc brakes. I am having a hard time finding an adult bike with all of these features for 1500, let alone 1099.
