Should you have to modify a bike you've just bought for your child in order to make it safer on the road? No, we don't think so either. It's the reason we developed the Acid 240 Allroad - the kind of mountain bike that kids have always wanted, with the safety features that mean parents can relax. The package includes mudguards for wet weather, LED lights so that your child can see and be seen at any time of day, and a front brake modulator to prevent over-keen braking resulting in an over-the-bars accident. Brake levers are specially designed for the shorter reach of children's hands, and the Shimano 7-speed gears are easy to use. There's even a Suntour suspension fork for better comfort and control on rough surfaces. Read more... The frame onto which all this carefully selected equipment is bolted is equally impressive, boasting youth-specific geometry with a low top tube for the ideal blend of agility and stability. Heat-treated, mechanically formed 6061 aluminium frame tubes are of the same type that we use in our adult bikes, allowing our engineers to build a frame that easily passes our stringent in-house safety tests. Add it all up and it's everything that your young rider needs to conquer roads and trails, all on the same bike.
