We’re stoked to announce that for a second year in a row some of our best models appear on the World of MTB “Best of 2021” list!

This year they include the hardtail 29 Trigger 9.9 GX-12, the top gravel bike 28 Sterrato CF 7.0 EKAR and the kid’s dream – 24 Badger Lite DB.

It’s a pleasure to introduce you Badger – the new DRAG model for little shredders.

BADGER has the soul of a mountain bike implemented in the body of a kids bike thanks to DRAG’s KidFit Pro technology! It is the new DRAG model, which is developed to be on the threshold between a kids bike and a real mountain bike for adults. It has all the features of a “true” mountain bike, but fully customized thanks to KidFit Pro technology developed by DRAG – each component is rethought and tailored to the anatomy, proportions, reflexes and power distribution of young riders.

Badger 24″ Lite DB is one of the lightest, most versatile xc kids bike that will get the little ones  excited to be out on the trail.

A cross-country shredder with a Shimano drivetrain, Hydraulic Disc brakes with ergonomic kids levers and in-house components, it is designed to fit the youngest riders. Badger Lite uses a light but stiff aluminium frame that will deliver a real off-road performance to create the next generation of mountain bikers. DRAG kids bikes feature  gear and brake levers that are child specific, smaller and easier to use. Feeling comfortable and developing confidence is crucial at this point to ensure the fit is correct and the child is happy with the look and feel of the bike.

Here’s what they say about the Badger 24″ Lite DB bike from the german magazine WOM:

“With just a bit over 10 kg and a price under 400 euros the Badger Lite DB is a really great kids XC bike. It comes with decent 2.0 Vee Tire tires which have great performance even on technical terrain. The handlebar is sufficiently wide and all parts are suitable for children. A suspension fork is dispensed in favor of the weight and the bulky tires.
Race offspring go!”

Weight: 10.17 kg (incl. pedals)
