Bringing our progressive design to 9-12 year old riders requires more than just shorter measurements, and smaller tubes — we built the Fluid FS 1 24 with low standover, longer reach, youth-tuned suspension components and a dropper that is optimized for riders below 90 pounds.
The Fluid FS 1 24 features 120mm of Fox Performance FLOAT rear suspension matched to a Manitou J-Unit Expert Air 145mm fork. It features SDG youth-specific touch points, a SRAM NX/SX Eagle drivetrain and Shimano MT500 hydraulic disc brakes.
- Aluminum full-suspension frame
- Manitou Machette J-Unit 145mm travel fork
- SRAM NX/SX drivetrain
- Sun Ringle Duroc 30 Kids tubeless-ready Boost wheelset
- SDG Jr handlebar, saddle and grips
- JD TransX Light Action dropper post, 100mm, w/1x lever
A dropper seatpost allows you to quickly lower and raise your seat to give you an ideal riding position. Dropping your seat creates a lower center of gravity for better control and maneuverability on steep descents, while raising it puts you at normal riding height for efficient pedaling.
Construction can include either hydraulic- or cable-actuated systems and the post’s travel can either be infinitely adjustable or stopped at set intervals, depending on the model.
Dropper seatposts come in standard lengths and diameters and vary by the amount of travel.
