[Press Release] – The all-new Future Pro Ransom’s balanced geometry paired with long-travel, custom-tuned suspension and dropper seatpost, the adjustability to run 24″ or 26″ wheels and tailored components means no rider is too young to show the trail what they’re made of!

The kid-tuned 140/130mm suspension of the Future Pro Ransom is paired with a custom frame and geometry that provides a very low standover height and promotes a stable, balanced, and safe position. This allows kids to tackle descents with confidence and gives parents peace of mind. When they’re ready to pedal back up for more, the Syncros Ducan Dropper keeps the transitions quick. The Future Pro Ransom comes in two models: the Ransom 600 with 26″ wheels and the Ransom 400 with 24″ wheels. Both bikes can be fitted with 24” or 26” wheels with our simple flip-chip system on the linkage allowing this bike to last because we know kids grow fast. The wait for the next generation is over, the Ransom family is complete.

Full Discloser: If your kid wasn’t faster than you before, with the all-new Ransom, they will be now.

Geometry

We built the Ransom 400 and 600 with the same aggressive intentions as the “big” Ransom, but for a kid. At the same time, we wanted to support a balanced position with equalized weight over both wheels for a safer ride. For the bike, this means a slack head angle and low BB for stable and confident cornering. The extra low standover height allows kids to put their feet down if needed and a short head tube keeps the handlebar low and weight over their front wheel, giving control over their line.

Made for speed

Just like the “big Ransom”, the Ransom 600 is made for speed. It will smoothly absorb the biggest of jumps and remain perfectly controllable and fun even at the highest speeds. With 140mm of fork travel and 130mm at the rear, no obstacle is insurmountable.

Adjustability

Built for adjustability, both the Ransom 400 and 600 feature the same lightweight alloy frame that can run 24” or 26” wheels thanks to our simple flip-chip system you also find on other SCOTT frames. This allows families to buy a bike that can grow (or shrink for siblings). The alloy frame is lightweight for little riders to maneuver easily yet durable to last the test of time.

Suspension

We built this bike for kids who would be hitting some serious terrain and then pedaling up for more. At the same time, it was central to the development to have a bike that worked well for riders who are light. That’s why we equipped the Ransom 400 and 600 with a 140mm fork and 130mm rear shock, both with custom tuning for kids. This means suspension that works better for a smoother, less exhausting ride.

Dropper seatpost

The Syncros Ducan Dropper 80mm allows kids to get the seat down and out of their way when descending and pop it back up quickly and easily. A special kid’s tunes makes this easy when they’re ready to pedal back up for more.

The cable routing is completely inside the frame.
