Bikes for 8–11 years
Kids’ bikes with 24" wheels offer all the benefits of full-sized bikes in terms of frame design, transmission and braking. The only difference between these and adult-sized bikes is that the frame geometry has been optimized around a 24" wheel.
From ages 8 and up, 24" wheel junior bikes have most of the same features as an adult bike but will feature shorter cranks and a reduced reach for the handlebars to make them more comfortable and controllable for shorter limbs.
24" wheel mountain bikes will often feature suspension, to facilitate greater exploration! They’ll have more gears too so that your child can handle steeper inclines and descents.
