New Bikes For The Next Generation

Cub Scoot, 14″ and 16″ Cub Scouts

For life’s special moments.

Sharing the DNA of the infamous scout, Nukeproof are proud to launch the cub scoot, the 14” and 16” Cub Scouts. Whilst we can’t guarantee the newest additions to our Cub Scout range will make your little person into the next Sam Hill, it’s a good place to start and they are sure to have fun along the way.

With a discerning team of testers (our own kids), we’ve left no stone unturned in creating a range of youth bikes that are designed to inspire and give confidence off road to the next generation of mountain bikers.

Knowing that kid’s bikes are 50% ridden, 50% carried by mum and dad we’ve ensured the full range is durable but lightweight for those inevitable ‘uplift’ moments.

Nukeproof Cub Scoot

What sets it apart | Designed and developed by the very same team behind our award-winning mountain bike range, the Cub Scoot is a dedicated kids 12” balance bike for riders around 2yrs.

Featuring lightweight wheels wrapped in specific off-road tyres to deliver maximum grip whilst staying nimble enough for little riders. Size is important on a kid’s bike, which is why the cub scout is offered with a low standover height and a fully adjustable saddle height to keep the Cub Scoot in the family for longer.

The Cub Scoot is rear brake ready for when the shoe-brakes become not quite enough (140mm rotor recommended), to reduce the need to trade in the Cub Scoot prematurely and keep it in the family for longer. The frame is made with hydroformed 6062 -T6 Custom butted Aluminium to maintain strength, and features custom designed in kid friendly MTB geometry.

The Cub Scoot is offered in two colours: Rosso Red and Turmeric Yellow, and retails for £229.99 GBP/ €299.99 Euro/ $249.99 USD.

Nukeproof 14″ Cub Scout

What sets it apart| For mini shredders who have graduated from balance bikes and are looking for their first pedal bike (3yrs+). A direct descendent of the Scout, Nukeproof’s award-winning hardtail, the 14” Cub Scout offers a low standover height and adjustable integrated saddle and seat post.

The 14” Cub Scout offers single speed gearing to keep things simple in those early days, as well as disc brakes (160mm front and 140mm rear) fitted with short-reach levers to allow for easy braking when things get rowdy.

Little hands and feet call for components to suit. Nukeproof have selected a full range offers child-friendly components in the form of a kid’s-specific saddle; kid’s-specific bars (25.2mm clamp) and 19mm grips ensuring the key touchpoints are covered.

The Nukeproof 14″ Cub Scout is offered in two colours: Rosso Red and Turmeric Yellow, with a retail price of £349.99 GBP/ €449.99 Euro/ $399.99 USD.

Nukeproof 16″ Cub Scout

What sets it apart: One size doesn’t fit all. If you are coming straight from a balance bike, have outgrown your 14″, but are not big enough for a 20″; the Cub Scout 16″ is there for you.

Designed for youths between 105 -110cm tall, the Cub Scout 16″ is a proper off-road bike, with quality tyres; dialled geometry and components to suit small hands and feet. A low standover height and adjustable integrated saddle and seat post makes this a confidence-inspiring first pedal bike. Powerful disc brakes help support learning the basics of mastering a mountain bike.

The big choice, which of the two colours on offer do you want? Rosso Red or Turmeric Yellow? Both retail for £399.99 GBP/ €499.99 Euro/ $449.99 USD.

Growing with us | The youth have never had it so good. We know (from first-hand experience) that small humans grow into bigger ones. Therefore, we have expanded the Cub Scout range to go from the 12″ Cub Scoot through to the 26″ Cub Scout.
