The Ripcord complete bike is a powerhouse of a kids bike with a ton of features and no need to upgrade anything on the bike. RockShox air suspension front and rear makes it super easy to set up and change as the rider grows. SRAM GX 1 x 10 drivetrain is simple and easy to use with only one trigger shifter and has a huge gear range of 11-36t on the cassette. Shimano hydraulic Deore disc brakes as effortless to use and have excellent lever reach adjustment for smaller hands. Tires are everything and we spare no expense to give the Ripcord the same Maxxis Minion tires that are spec'd on the Transition adult bikes for superior traction and braking.
The good news is that the Ripcord only comes in one size so you don't have to worry about finding the right size. Since your child is constantly growing, our sizing chart shows the height that is optimal for the Ripcord. Please note that although your child might not be in the optimal size range it doesn't necessarily mean your child will not be able to ride the Ripcord and have a great time. It may just mean that they will have some time to grow into it over the next year or so and reach that optimal range.
Not only is your childs height important but their weight as well. The Ripcord utilizes a rear air shock and an air front fork. This makes it easier to setup the suspension for your child as their weight changes over time. In order to utilize the suspension properly, your child should be in the 60-150 lb range. If your child is lighter than 60 lbs, that is not a problem, it just means that with the minimum amount of air pressure in the fork and rear shock they may not be able to utilize the full travel of the Ripcord.
