2022 Inspired Hex Team - Super Rider Bike Check

This is my 2022 Inspired Hex Team. It's a 26" street trials bike - and what I believe to be the closest fit to what I grew up riding. The geometry is a perfect mix between street trials and old school trials geometry. It's an all-arounder that I would ride any style of terrain (or any riding style - street or competition). I've ridden this particular bike for over a year, and I'm happy with it. I can't imagine making many changes to the overall spec of the bike (beyond what I've done already - brakes, bars, grips and tires).

Check Out The Unboxing

Here's the original unboxing video when this bike was first delivered to the Shred Spot!

Deity High Side Bars

"I swap in Deity High Side handlebars on all of my bikes. It's the same rise/sweep as the bars that come on Inspired Team models. Deity bars withstand events like Red Bull Rampage, so I have all the confidence in the world with these bars."

Hayes Dominion Brakes

"Hands down the best disc brakes I've used for Trials. Ali Clarkson recommended these and I can't say enough good things about their power, the lever action...everything, really. I even rode a competition with these brakes. No issues at all."

Maxxis Ikon Tires

Maxxis Ikon tires, 2.2 in both front and rear. I was originally concerned about running a thinner tire for trials, but this set is a perfect mix of low rolling resistance and stability. I also use a Tannus insert in my rear wheel - no tubeless needed."
