Get your little grom’s confidence up both in the neighborhood and on the trail with the Raptor Plus. It’s got a lightweight alloy frame and an easy-pedaling 7-speed Shimano drivetrain, but what really sets this bike apart are the 20 x 3-inch wide knobby tires that offer extra grip and stability to roll over anything. It sports powerful linear-pull brakes and details like a replaceable derailleur hanger and rear derailleur guard, because we all know kids can be tough on bikes.
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.
The Beep Beep is all about turning little kids into rad little riders. With a durable steel frame, smooth rolling tires, long seat post and adjustable height handlebars, it’s the perfect balance-teaching tool for kids as young as 18 months old.
