As one of the first mountain bike manufacturers who has dedicated so extensively to the kids segment, we are very proud to present the third generation of the Yuma. Our goal was and still is to build a kids mountain bike that is in no way inferior to the big ones.
“The perfect playmate for your next adventure, whether on the pump track, in the bike park or in the woods behind the house. With the Yuma, you’ll make mom look old and dad look silly. Grab your Yuma and have a great time you’ll never forget.” – That’s probably the best way to describe the Yuma.
The Yuma is a children’s full-size bike that is in no way inferior to its big role models. A full-fledged mountain bike for the motivated youngsters. Originally developed for the kids of PROPAIN founders, today it’s a bike for the motivated gravity youngster and a popular bike around the world.
Optimally designed for the needs of young shredders and Senderellas. The lightweight aluminium frame, optimized suspension system and balanced geometry give the rookies stability and security on every ride.
Delivered with 24″ wheels, the Yuma can be easily converted to 26″ wheels by means of Flip Chip and grow along. So kids have fun for a long time and the parents’ investment lasts. But beware: the moment will come when you realize that your child is faster than you!

Overall concept and geometry
The lightweight aluminium frame and balanced geometry gives the young shredders confidence and stability. The slack head angle and the low bottom bracket ensure a safe and fun ride. Thanks to the reduced standover height, the kids get their feet on the ground when needed and always have full control over their bike. The optimal length of the top tube in combination with a steep seat angle allow the youngsters an upright pedal position and an optimal weight distribution over the handlebars when going downhill. The Yuma is a small Enduro Bike and is designed for everything between bike park and rides with the family.
Wheel concept – Grow with it
Everyone grows and progresses and so does our Yuma.
Our “Rookie Launcher” comes with 24″ wheels. By simply switching the flip chip, the bike can be easily converted to 26″ wheels. So, the bike grows with you and can be ridden for a long time.
24″: Body height from 1.25 m – about 1.50 m
26″: Body height from 1.40 m – about 1.55 m
The maximum rider weight is 80 kg.
The Grown-Up Kit on 26″ wheels can be purchased separately and is not included.
Suspension system/ kinematics
The Yuma is suspended by a single link design. A simple system, which is ideally designed for children’s bikes. It saves weight and still offers decent progression and sensitivity for the light pilots. In addition, it is easy to maintain and simple to handle.
New design concept and colors
As with our adult models, we are also breaking new ground in terms of design language. The modern design of the Yuma is classy, tidy and dynamic, it can easily keep up with the “big guys”. The flat top tube gives the Yuma a sleek and simple look. Color of head tube badge, frame decals and grips are freely configurable. The new frame colors of the Yuma are “Badmint (Matte)” and “Venomblack (Matte)”.
Specification and prices
We offer our Yuma in one spec. The head tube badge, the frame decal and the grips color are configurable. In addition, there is the option for a tubeless kit from “milKit” – including sealing milk, filling system and valves which are already pre-assembled.
Saddle, seatpost, crank, handlebar and stem still come from “1st Ride”, the specialist for kids bike parts.
Also, for the drive train and the braking system we go no compromise and so a SRAM GX 1×11 and a SRAM Guide T brake are speced. The shock from Rockshox and the fork from Manitou round out the suspension.
Newmen supplies the very high-quality and lightweight X.A.25 wheels. These wheels not only look good but impress above all with decent stiffness and stability at record-breaking weight. Traction for the small Fully comes from the VEE Flow SNAP 2.4.
The new Yuma is available for order at a price of € 2,199.00 from 22th of June 2021 in our webshop. Prices outside EU may vary. North America prices are tba.
