Academy MTB 20


This impressive little machine has made everyone in the Dawes office wish they were 7 years old again!

Using our tried and tested Academy triple butted frameset, with revised geometry for mountain biking, we’ve introduced super lightweight air suspension forks to all our new Academy MTB’s…something you don’t see everyday on kids bikes!  Combined with Tektro mechanical disc brakes (hydraulic would be a bit too powerful!) on the front and rear, ALEX DP17 double wall rims and Shimano 8 speed Rapidfire gears, this 20″ mountain bike is likely to impress even the most daring of kids!  Weighing just 9.42kg, it’s light enough to pedal just about anywhere.
