Academy 26, Black


Our premium range of Academy children’s bikes are something a bit special. Built around a lightweight, triple butted frame, we’ve carefully selected components that are perfectly in proportion with the intended rider for this 26″ wheel, 8 speed machine. Why confuse life with too many gear ratios, when most riders stick to only a handful? We’ve stuck by this principle across our Academy range as when it comes to gears on a kids bike, quite often less is more! Perfectly proportioned 152mm crank arms, easy to pedal 32T chainring, narrow handlebars, a choice of 13″ or 15″ frame and simple to use, slimline quick release seat collar allow you to find the perfect fit for cycling enthusiasts aged 9yrs +
