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.
To meet the needs of these riders, and help them step things up and progress even further, we’ve completely re-designed the Fluid FS Youth series. The new, progressive frame design provides the features and ride quality of our best adult bikes in a package that isn’t just scaled-down, but thought out.
Standover has been maximized, suspension components have been carefully selected with an optimized tune, and the geometry has been honed to create the progressive Norco ride for both 20 and 24-inch models. We intentionally sourced youth-specific components to support riders who demand the most from their equipment, and want to step it up a notch.
The quality and build reflects everything we put into our full-size bikes, so you know the new Fluid FS Youth is up for every trail they are, and its quality parts will keep it out of the shop.
