Product Description

With generous clearances, a simplified, wide-range 1x9 drivetrain and confidence-inspiring disc brakes, the beta 26 CX represents the ideal introduction to the muddy world of cyclocross.

Youth bikes, to us, should be all about a fun and exciting safe way to explore the great outdoors. With a vibrant ‘flash green’ paintjob and proportionally-sized contact points the Beta 26 CX has all the bases covered.

You'll find the simplified 1x9 drivetrain with wide-range 11-34T cassette still provides an ample, useable gear range but is lighter, easier to maintain and operate and also more resilient (aka 'kid proof'), ensuring there'll be life left in the bike for any younger brothers or sisters.


Youth-friendly gearing

Our youth-friendly 2x8 gearing matches a 46/34T chainset with a wide-range 12-32T cassette out back to deliver an expansive gear range that should cover both road and off-road use (you'll conveniently find generous clearances for knobbly-tyred rubber).

Proportionally-correct components

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.
