THE YOUTH MODEL Y/1

The Youth Model Y/1 was conceived for the junior adventurer to keep up with and climb past their mentors. Everything has been intelligently considered—weight reduction, more durable componentry, two sizes that specifically accommodate for kids and their growing proportions, corrosion-proof inner and outer tube coating, and, most importantly, redefined superior fit and feel. All of these advantages carefully engineered into one bike provide for a ride feel that will drive them to go bigger and climb higher every time they roll up to the trail head.

DURABILITY. AGILITY. ADAPTABILITY.

VAAST Y/1 Allite Super Magnesium youth MTB’s are designed specifically as serious, performance bicycles with the young, growing adventurer in mind. Available in two wheel sizes, the VAAST Model Y/1 line is intuitively designed to account for the rider’s growth and skill development. It features lightweight ride longevity and minimal maintenance. Performance has been optimized by selecting the most trusted component brands in the business, like Shimano, SunTour, Kenda, and KMC, enabling junior explorers to become master mountaineers with confidence.

DESIGNED TO MOVE MOUNTAINS.

Riding with confidence means advancing to the next level.

Designing a youth mountain bike requires far more consideration that just making things smaller. For a young rider to develop and advance, they first must feel confident. To do so, we need to make sure we address things like grips and levers actually fitting their hands, making top tubes low enough to accommodate “bail-out” situations, and spec suspensions with re-bound rates tailored to the weight of a kid. The Model Y/1 will give young riders what they need to grow both physically and mentally to undoubtedly one day ride right past you begging you to keep up.

Bike Technology

LIGHTER. STRONGER. PROFOUNDLY BETTER.

VAAST Bikes® are the first to use ALLITE® SUPER MAGNESIUM™. This high-strength alloy features excellent shock absorption properties, weighs 33% less than Aluminum and 50% less than Titanium by volume, and is significantly stronger than both. Through the exclusive use of this eco-friendly metal, we have achieved a ride feel like no other.

  • Efficient power transfer makes for easier climbing.
  • Shock absorption properties neutralize much of the road buzz.
  • Frame weight rivaled only by Carbon Fiber.
  • PEO surface treatment technology for added corrosion and wear resistance.
