Want to buy a bike for junior, but unsure whether to go down the dedicated mountainbike route or something a little more tarmac-focused? The Alpha 24 could be the answer to your prayers
Shipping with both a pair of 1.25" slicks for road/tarmac use and a pair of semi-slick light knobblies for light off-road/CX use, the Alpha 24 represents unbeatable value-for-money; x2 bikes for the price of x1!
With an emphasis of fit and safety, at this age we're convinced a flatbar setup is the way to go - scaled-down, jnr-specific integrated shifters might fit well from the hoods but are tricky to reach and operate confidently from the drops.
Underestimate the Alpha 24 at your peril; our lightweight, simplisitic flatbar road-come-CX do-it-all aimed at the yoofs punches well above its weight!
Kids at this age (normally coming from a single speed of some sort) can struggle to adapt to rear shifting alone, let alone asking them to compute 3 seperate front chain rings also! A simplified 1x8 drive with optimized chainline and wide-range 11-34T cassette still provides an ample, useable range but is lighter, easier to maintain and more resilient (aka 'kid proof').
A youth bike is all about sweating the details and ensuring a good, safe fit. Scaled-down crankarms, handlebars, saddle and levers are all sourced, designed and selected with the smaller rider in mind, helping to ensure a better, confidence-inspiring fit.
