Built from the same heat-treated 6061 aluminium tubes as our adult bikes, the Acid 240’s frame is every bit as tough as a full-size mountain bike, but with the right weight and proportions for a child. There’s a bottle mount for mid-ride refreshment and rack mounts, too. The handling is designed to be both fun and confidence-inspiring. And, because we know accidents can happen, we made the gear hanger easily replaceable so that a knock or crash needn’t result in an expensive repair.
The Suntour suspension fork improves comfort and control on rough surfaces, while Shimano 7-speed gears put every hill within reach. The V-brakes are powerful and easy to control, thanks to levers that are specially designed for small hands and a power modulator on the front. And a replaceable gear hanger means an accidental knock needn’t result in an expensive repair.
