The MX 16 offers everything an aspiring young MTB rider could want or need. The alloy tubes in the lightweight frame bear shapes reminiscent of our top-of-the-line Alma hardtail. This ensures that your little ripper knows he’s on a real mountain bike as he’s chasing (or leading) you down the trail. As a first MTB, the MX 16 is designed for durability and simplicity. That’s why it has a rigid fork and a single gear. Thrown down in the dirt or hung up next to daddy’s bike, this one goes and goes. Simple doesn’t mean shoddy – the MX 16 uses a 1-1/8” semi-integrated headset, V-brakes, and an alloy riser bar. Show us whatcha got, kid.

The light weight of Orbea’s products for little kids and youngsters deliver an amazing usability. Making bicycles for kids and youngsters lighter has very important effects. Why? 1. Taking the bike and rider together, the former is proportionally larger when the user is a kid, and so it has a stronger influence on the kid's strength. 2. Every kilogram a bike maker can subtract from a bike’s total weight counts –the lighter the bike, the lower the proportion of its weight in the total. The proportion is even larger in a kid's bike. If the bike weighs less, it can be handled more easily at a standstill, which is really important for kids to have a nicer experience.
Orbea’s MiniPro geometry is what marks the new MX and their distinctive performance. This geometry is particularly compact and oriented to sports performance. 1. A sloping geometry provides stability, better handling, and accessibility. Designed even for more experienced riders who want to negotiate impossibly difficult off-road descents. 2. A shorter bottom bracket provides stability and easy rides in uphill and downhill sections. 3. The rear part is especially short for better traction and climbing capacity, and even for a rush or two.
We wanted to make bikes that kids could ride do what they wanted to do, embarking on real adventures ending at dinner time. So we also worked on transmission until we came up with the X1 system, which uses particularly large rear sprockets and a single front dérailleur. This is a simple, light solution. 1. The larger X1 rear sprocket is better for climbing than the traditional small one. 2. The single dérailleur makes the system easier to use and lighter too.
