If you are looking for a real mountain bike for your 8 to 12 year-old, look no further.
Trek’s Superfly 24 puts all of the off-road technology that you would find on an adult hardtail into this small package.
The Superfly comes with a 80mm travel Suntour suspension fork that is appropriately sprung for a small rider. The lightweight double-wall wheels come with allen-bolt quick releases for easy maintenance and travel. Overall weight is reduced with high quality aluminum construction all around. The handlebars, stem, seatpost, crankset, derailleurs, brakes, and even spoke nipples utilize better materials to make the bike light and trouble free. Even the cheap plastic pedals typically found on kids bikes have been replaced by high quality Wellgo platform pedals.
Shifting and braking effort is nice and easy for small hands with quality Shimano derailleurs and smooth Tektro V-brakes.
Heck, if you come in to check out this bike you might be wishing it came in your size.
