Bikemaker Vitus has reduced its popular Mythique trail all-mountain bike into a new children’s version for the next generation of mountain bikers to hone their off-road skills. With 120mm of travel, capable slack geometry, modern drivetrains, all the latest standard, and the option of 24″ or 26″ wheels, young riders will be tearing up the trails and parents will be fighting to keep these new mini Mythiques .

All mountain bikers want their kids to ride their bikes well. But department store bikes don’t measure up to real riding. Even good quality hardtails aren’t really as fun as you’d hope. (Are you ditching your modern carbon bike and going back to an entry-level aluminum hardtail now that your taste in full-suspension riding?) And the bikes are so expensive, that it is difficult to justify spending money when the children are still growing like weeds.

Enter a Vitus Mythique for children!

The new Vitus Mythique Kids is based directly on the popular and successful aluminum version of the 2023 Vitus Mythic which was just updated last winter (and which in its previous generation earned mentions in both mio 2019 & 2020 Editor’s Choice for its speed and accessibility). Vitus wanted a bike that was “as capable and confidence-inspiring as its adult-sized namesake.”

How did they do it?

To achieve this, Vitus scaled the normal aluminum bike. Therefore, it left only 10 mm of rear wheel travel and reduced wheels to fit smaller riders. “Essentially, we’ve started with the adult-sized Mythique’s alloy frame and narrowed it down to fit a smaller human, meaning your budding shredder can look forward to the same balance, playfulness and durability that made the Mythique one of the most popular bikes in the world. our line.”

The resulting bikes get 120mm of rear wheel travel (up from the adults’ 130mm), mated to a 130mm fork on the 16″ bike or a 120mm fork on the 14″ bike for an even lower standover.

Both also maintain fairly progressive geometry. A 66° head angle on the larger bike, with an effective seat tube at 75.5° on both. The size is designed for smaller riders, from 127-158 cm / 4’1″-5’1″ tall.

Technological details

The Kids’ Mythique is a 6061-T6 alloy bike with the same 4-bar suspension design as the adult version. It also maintains the same modern standards, quite surprising for a children’s bike, actually. You get a standard universal derailleur hanger. Tapered head tubes. In addition, Boost spacing, suitable thru-axles, and down tube, chainstay and seatstay protectors.

Unfortunately, Vitus does not build bikes with dropper posts. But there is internal routing for a 31.6mm dropper when it’s time to upgrade your baby.

There is only one complete bike build of each. To that end, they get similar specs built around a wide Box Four 1x 8-speed drivetrain, 160mm Clarks Clout hydraulic disk & 30mm WTB ST i30 internal rims with tubeless tape already installed.

As for specs, the 26″ red bike gets a 130mm SR Suntour Raidon 34 fork and 2.5″ EXO Maxxis Minion tires. While the silver 24″ bike gets a 120mm Manitou J-Unit 34 Expert fork, and an Enduro 2.4″ Vee Flow Snap tire.

Both bikes retail for the same suggested price of £1600 / $2000. And they come directly from Vitus’ direct-to-consumer sales partners Chain reaction and to move. now, recent industry news suggests that the parent of all these companies that are struggling financially and has gone into restructuring. Indeed, this could add some doubt about the long-term availability of the service or warranty coverage. But if you’re looking to buy this bike, you’re already going the direct-to-consumer route away from brick & mortar bike shops anyway. And in addition to this, Vitus was clear that they developed this bike with a focus on durability and ease of service based on their adult Mythiques in alloy.

What this also means is that Vitus and its relative Signa, are looking for cashflow. And with the holiday season right around the corner, they’re calling it an early Black Friday sale. As a result, in the United Kingdom there is currently a 25% discount that puts these children’s bikes at £ 1200. Also, in the United States, this is a 33% discount, bringing prices down to $ 1340. These sales on a new modern bike make these look like a pretty killer deal for your young shredder.
