Kade Edwards is one of the most talented and best all-round bike handlers in the business so it’s only right he has a bike lineup to match his diverse skill set. This is only a select few rides from his quiver with a few more stashed away. Kade has been onboard Trek bikes since 2016, initially a protege on the Atherton’s before sticking with Trek when they took their program inhouse last season. Although he’s an accomplished racer with a junior World Champs title to his name, Kade also has a reputation for his wild antics and style both inside and outside of the tape which seem to transfer effortlessly between whatever bike he decides to pick up. He admits to not being overly picky when it comes to setup either and is somewhat set and forget when it comes to most of his bikes, although his Session race bike has a more refined setup as you’d expect.

Kade runs both the fork and shock on his Ticket S as hard as he can.
Brett Rheeder sent over a Title gyro to use on the build.

After previously liking coil Kade is now sold on air and runs it across all his bikes.
770mm alloy bars with a 25mm rise and 35mm diameter are anchored to a 50mm stem which is raised 5mm for steeper tracks.
A 34T chainring is paired with a 10-24T cassette.
The cockpit says all that needs to be said when it comes to imagining what Kade gets up to on this bike.
Another clean looking drivetrain setup.
An XR1 is the tire of choice up front whilst an XR2 takes care of things out back.
The Rail gets Kade’s 30/30 setup… 30% sag front and rear and 30 PSI in the tires and then she’s good to go!
Does what it says on the tin. Get lit, not fit.
Kade isn’t fussy when it comes to setting up his Remedy, 30% sag front and rear and will “whack all the clicks on” if he’s hitting jumps.
In the grand scheme of things he runs his bars pretty narrow, these are cut at 760mm.
The slightly different lever angle comes from the result of a wrist injury.
Tall Order 315
He opted for a Tall Order 315 as he wanted a bigger BMX so it was more similar to his mountain bikes.
The Profile wheels were even a birthday present from his mum and Tahnee!
