      Inspired By Kids
      Engineered For Kids
      Dedicated to Performance


      Recess takes on a new meaning when working from home! Restart the school year with performance youth components from JUNIT and gear up your bike crew for a new style of recess.

      Hayes Performance Systems' pioneered the junior/youth riding segment when releasing the JUNIT (pronounced jay:unit ) system back in 2019. Since then, our engineers have been hard at work, developing performance youth components including youth-sized 20'' and 24'' suspensions, wheels, hydraulic brakes, and a unique handlebar/grip system, specifically tailored for youth riders.

      Manitou Machete JUNIT

      A key component of the JUNIT system is that the Manitou Machete 20” and 24” suspension forks offer complete adult functionality and adjustability, yet specifically tuned for kids. Our team was able to apply our extensive suspension expertise and knowledge to create something truly unique. Finally, young riders have the option of either a 20” or 24” fork to shred on a lightweight, high-quality Manitou chassis.

      ProTaper JUNIT

      JUNIT ProTaper MTB handlebar and grip is the final part of this system. Engineering began by researching anthropometric data from a NASA database. We determined the average hand size of a 6-10 year old which set the team into motion.

      Normally, grip diameter is a result of adding material to a standard handlebar size. For the JUNIT ProTaper handlebar system, we flipped the script. We began by determining the ideal grip diameter and worked inward.

      The result is a handlebar and grip with a 23mm outside diameter that’s ideal for a smaller ergonomic profile.

      The JUNIT ProTaper handlebar and grip are specifically designed to be used together.

      Hayes Dominion SFL

      Our Hayes Dominion A2 and A4 brakes are designed around one priority - low effort in and full controllable power out. As this was already ideal for young riders the only thing we had to do was to design a special lever to be the perfect fit for any rider who prefers smaller levers or have small hands. Combining the ProTaper MTB grip/bar combo and SFL short Dominion lever creates a perfect match for young riders.
