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 allow parents to relax. The package includes mudguards for wet weather, LED lights so that your child can see and be seen, and a front brake modulator to prevent over-enthusiastic braking resulting in an unfortunate accident. Brake levers are specially designed for the shorter reach of children's hands, and the Shimano 7 speed gear system is easy to use and puts the right gear for any situation just a click or two away. On top of all this, there's a Suntour suspension fork for noticeably better comfort and control on rough surfaces. It's everything, in other words, that your young rider needs to conquer roads and trails with the same bike.
Young riders want to ride as fast as their skills allow. That's why we developed the Acid 240 Allroad's frame to be light, strong and confidence-inspiring. Youth-specific geometry with a low top tube provides the ideal blend of agility and stability, while the mechanically formed, heat-treated 6061 aluminium tubes are exactly the same kind you'll find in our full size frames. We know durability is important, too, which is why we made sure that the derailleur hanger - which can be damaged in a tumble - is easily replaceable. It means that the kind of little accidents that are quite common needn't result in a big repair bill.
