Nukeproof Urchin Range: Performance kids components

Nukeproof announces a new range of performance MTB components and products aimed at kids. Nukeproof’s new Urchin range is for the awesome growth in demand from the next generation of tiny human trail slayers (in particular to meet the recent growth from the Nukeproof office staff and athletes’ families). Using our very own test pilots, the Urchin range has been optimised to offer trail/ track-ready upgrades for the kid’s market.

Urchin Flat pedals

Heading the new URCHIN range is the flat pedal. Designed for the next generation of foot out, flat out Sam Hill youths, these pedals are based on our award-winning Sam Hill Horizon flat pedals. Using an alloy CNC 94×76.5x17mm body, they have 10 pin replaceable pins per side and use the same proven dual sealed bearing internals as the adult pedals. Should the Urchin pedals require, a full rebuild kit and replacement axles are available.
