The Grom Reaper

October 04, 2018
 

What’s it like to experience Whistler through the eyes of a kid? In short, it’s awesome. You get to eat ice cream for lunch, there’s no such thing as a to-do list, and your mind is set to cruise control, focused in on having as much fun as possible. Whether you’re chasing your heroes down the trail, or unexpectedly leading them, the world looks pretty good from a grom’s eye view.

Dane Jewett’s a 12-year old kid from Squamish and has been tearing it up on the Reaper for the past three years. Starting on 24” wheels, he moved up to 26” for this season and is looking to take his first ride on the all-new Reaper 27.5 later this year. Dane Jewett is the Grom Reaper, and he’s pretty fun to follow.

Carson Storch, Thomas Vanderham, and Dane Jewett took a few laps together down Crabapple Hits.

 

The Reaper can tear up singletrack, smash technical descents, and slay bike park laps all day long. And, because we know that kids grow (and have younger siblings), the Reaper is easily convertible from 24” wheels to 26” wheels and vice versa. We also have the new Reaper 27.5 option, to keep your kids shredding longer!

Announcing the Reaper and Growler

August 12, 2016

We're fired up to launch two new bikes: the Reaper and the Growler! The Reaper is a pint-sized full suspension shredder that can be converted from 24" wheels to 26" wheels, while the Growler is an ultra-capable plus hardtail that's both playful and intuitive. Get all the details below.

Reaper

 

  • Intended Use: Youth Trail
  • Front Travel: 120mm
  • Rear Travel: 130mm
  • Wheel Size: 24” / 26”

The Reaper provides the same aggressive trail performance found in our Thunderbolt and Altitude full suspension bikes in a smaller package for young rippers. It can tear up singletrack, smash technical descents, and slay bike park laps all day long. And, because we know that kids grow (and have younger siblings), the Reaper is easily convertible from 24” wheels to 26” wheels and vice versa. Don't fear the Reaper.

"The Reaper is the most fun and lightest full suspension bike I've ever ridden. It's good for everything! I can sometimes pass my dad on the trails and I'm even riding A-Line in the bike park!" —Dane Jewett, 10 Years Old

See both models here. Available early November.

Growler

 

  • Intended Use: Trail
  • Front Travel: 120mm
  • Wheel Size: 27.5+

 

The Growler takes full advantage of high volume 27.5+ tires and next generation trail geometry for a capable, confident ride. More traction makes short work of scrabbly climbs, more forgiveness helps hold aggressive lines, and intuitive handling keeps the ride playful. Cheers, eh!

See all three models here. Available late August.
