When your young rider is ready for serious trail action, KHS’s Alite 24 fits the bill and then some. Its KHS butted 6061-aluminum frame keeps things light and stiff so your little mountain biker gets up to speed quickly. The 24-inch aluminum wheels and Suntour suspension fork take on rocks and roots with ease. Climbs are a breeze, too, thanks to the 1×9 Shimano drivetrain, and when it’s time to slow it all down, all-weather mechanical disc brakes are ready for the job. Top it off with reliable aluminum components front to back and you’ve got a fine bike ready to stand up to all their rugged and fun riding.
