24-Inch (7+ yr. old)
Your little one might love to ride, but that doesn't mean they'll be doing Trans-Provence this summer. That's why Specialized made their Hotrock 24 with plenty of gear range to tackle the neighborhood hills, and enough front end travel to ride beginner's trails confidently. Of course, it also features a lightweight, yet durable, A1 Premium Aluminum frame that's designed to take a hit while they find their legs on the pump track. Chatter and bumps, meanwhile, are handled by the coil-sprung SR Suntour fork's 50mm of travel. Then there are a whole host of other components that are plenty tough enough to stand up to your little ripper, so you can rest assured that you'll be spending more time riding with your kid and less time waiting in line at the repair counter. - Tough, light, and durable, the A1 Premium Aluminum frame is built to stand up to years of tough riding. - SR Suntour suspension fork offers 50mm of coil-sprung travel that smooths out bumpy, rough terrain. - The 8-speed Shimano Tourney shifts smoothly and is tough enough for abuse.
Kids move fast, and grow faster. At times, it can seem like there's a small window for the perfect bike fit. The right bike for a young rider is a delicate balance between too small, too big, and a short-lived just right. If we're going to inspire the next generation of riders, we need to keep kids comfortably riding longer. The Jett is designed so that you'll never fear the growth spurts. We did our homework to understand how kids grow—spoiler alert, kids' arms and legs grow more rapidly than their torso. We took to the books and designed a bike with child-specific touch points that withstand the development of young riders. The Jett is uniquely adjustable, perfectly proportional, and child-liftable—they'll always be set to Jett. The Jett Multispeed features an adjustable handlebar that allows kids to fine tune reach as their arms grow. The 2-hole position cranks combined with longer seat tubes give plenty of flexibility to dial-in the optimal pedaling position. And what's more, we designed the frame and reviewed every component to make the Jett one of the lightest bikes on the market. You're going to have to beg them to get off this bike. - We designed the Jett Multispeed to be uniquely adjustable with 2-hole position cranks, adjustable handlebars, and longer seatposts so kids can dial-in the perfect riding position as they grow. - Every detail of the Jett Multispeed—including the 130mm Bridge saddle, narrower-diameter grips, and short-reach, tool-less adjustable brake levers—was informed by Retul data from a kids' research group to be perfectly proportional for young riders. - A lightweight bike is simply more fun and the Jett Multispeed's all-new A1 aluminum frame, alloy fork, Pathfinder tires, and 8-speed drivetrain make it one of the lightest kids' bikes on the market.
Buying a bike for your child can be daunting—that's why we developed the Zuma range to make it easier. Based on the concept of a kid-sized MTB bike, the Zuma bikes are incredibly lightweight. They feature a carefully researched geometry and are designed specifically around smaller riders as the perfect balance between a bike for a child to learn the basics on and a more advanced MTB for off-road riding conditions and weekend rides with the parents. These carefully spec'd bikes feature a super lightweight alloy frame and fork with double-wall rims and children's-specific aftermarket components from Promax, KMC, FSA, Vee Rubber, and Satori, making them suit the rider's size perfectly while keeping the look, feel, and ride of a high-end, full adult size MTB. Children are the future, and the Zuma line is designed to give them the best possible start for that future.
