Kids these days… spoiled rotten I tell you! Many well-established bike companies now offer appropriately sized (and tuned) MTBs for young riders, including Devinci Cycles and their new Ewoc FS trail bike.

The Ewoc FS is a full-suspension trail bike designed specifically for young shredders. It comes on 24” wheels, but the frame and fork are compatible with 26” wheels so the bike can grow with its rider. Aimed at groms approximately 9-12 years old and/or 4’4”- 4’11” tall, the Ewoc FS features Devinci’s Split Pivot suspension linkage with 125mms of rear travel.

Frame Features:

The Ewoc FS frame is made in Canada from 6061 T6 aluminum. Knowing how kids can be rough on their stuff, Devinci gave it a durable powder coat paint job.  

To keep maintenance easy, Devinci gave the Ewoc FS external cable routing. The frame was designed to offer a very low standover height and provides clearance for tires up to 2.4” wide (with 24” or 26” wheels).

The Ewoc’s suspension kinematics were specifically tuned for lightweight riders, so the linkage remains highly active even with low shock pressures. Devinci even builds the Ewoc frame with Enduro double-lip sealed bearings to ensure long-lasting, smooth suspension movement.

The Ewoc FS frame fits 31.6mm seat posts, and the stock dropper post has 100mm travel. The frame runs a Boost 148mm rear axle, and can fit a 28t or 30t chainring.

A threaded BB makes crank maintenance simple, and a chainstay protector and lower down tube guard provide protection against rock strikes and chain slap.

Geometry:

Devinci gave the Ewoc FS modern geometry so young riders can tackle the trails with confidence. The head tube angle of 64.5° and 76° seat tube angle are right in line with today’s adult bikes. See the chart below for all the numbers.

Component Highlights:

Devinci went with a suspension package from X-Fusion for the Ewoc FS, with a 02PRO RL rear shock and a 140mm Velvet RL fork. The air-sprung fork offers a lockout and rebound adjustment.

Key kid-specific touches on the build include 155mm SRAM SX Eagle cranks and Promax short-reach brake levers. Promax’s 2-piston calipers grab 180mm front and rear rotors. Another youth-sized component is the 680mm wide V2 Pro handlebar.

Devinci Ewoc FS, 12 speed cassette

There’s nothing kiddie about the Ewoc FS’s 12-speed SRAM SX Eagle drivetrain, featuring a wide range 11-50t cassette. Young rippers also get the benefit of a Trans-X 100mm dropper post.

The Ewoc’s V2 Comp 24” rims have a 27mm inner width to spread out the Kenda AMRAK 24×2.4” tires, and a set of Wellgo pedals are included so this bike is shred-ready.

Build Spec:

The Ewoc FS will be offered with one build spec – the Ewoc FS SX 12S.
