Big, mountain bike performance in a smaller package. Built to take aspiring rippers to the next level.

The Habit 26 thrives on the trails and is built for exploring, shredding, and learning. It uses 26-inch wheels for perfect handling and is fit for taller kids. Habit 26 is uses proven parts just like those you’ll find on bigger machines and an advanced four-bar linkage rear suspension for true mountain bike performance.

  • C3 Alloy Construction: Thanks to decades of experience engineering high-performance alloy bikes, we gave Habit 26 a frameset worthy of a pro. Advanced C3 aluminum construction means it strikes that perfect balance between tough and light.
  • Keeping it Clean: The Habit 26's internal cable routing achieves two things at once: it creates a smooth, clean design, and it also keeps the cables out of the way, so they're less likely to catch or snag - plus the bike will need less maintenance. 
  • The Right-Size Wheels: The 26-inch wheels are smaller than the 27.5-inch or 29-inch hoops on most adult bikes, so they'll fit you better, but they're still big enough to clear obstacles and provide a big contact patch on the trail for both traction and control.
  • Dialed-In Design: Why 120mm of travel? It strikes a balance between short-travel mountain bikes (80-100mm) that aren't supple enough, and long-travel rigs (140mm+) that can sometimes feel to floaty or bouncy when you're learning to shred. 
  • Go Confidently. Stop Confidently.: The Habit 26 comes with hydraulic disc brakes. That means stopping power is plentiful and reliable, giving you total control and confidence on the trails. 
  • Universal Derailleur Hanger: The derailleur hanger is a quiet hero. It's designed to bend or break if your hanger takes a hit, so the expensive frame doesn't get damaged. With the UDH, replacements are easy to find and easy to install.
