Singlehandledy the ‘coolest’ option we have on offer is Transition’s Ripcord Mountain Bike. As Transition themselves say, The Ripcord looks like a rad adult bike that was put on the photocopier and reduced by 40%. With the ripcord you get all the features of an adult bike but in a sweet package that kids can shred. Features like super low standover, air front and rear shocks, hydraulic disk brakes and knobby Maxxis tyres for superb braking and cornering control.
With full builds at £1,595 it’s a serious piece of kit that your child will be over the moon with. Transition always struggle with stock on this one as it is such a unique offering and they incredibly popular. Get yours pre-ordered now to guarantee one before Christmas! Or come and see the couple that we have in store.
Orbea’s MX series of kid’s bikes offers an immensely versatile and varied range of products. Using a lightweight alloy frameset as it’s base, the offerings include builds suited to all riding types and requirements.
The XC, Trail and Dirt offerings are a more traditional MTB option, with a hardtail design and front forks in various offerings. These would be suited for kids just starting out on the trails or if your family rides feature more rugged terrain than simple tarmac!
The Park, Team and Speed models are more suited to city and urban riding. The suspension is replaced with a rigid fork offering a solid ride feeling. They are finished off with smoother tyres so that speed can be gathered and maintained much easier and with prices ranging from £249-£549 every budget is catered for.
The Grow is a great first bike for your child. With nice wide tyres and a solid build, the main goal here is stability and confidence. Featuring a very simple and stripped back design it offers easy upkeep as well so you can worry less about mechanical side of things and more on simply getting out there and riding. Prices for the Grow start at £189.
