It’s all about lightweight for kids.
We care as much about our kids’ bikes as we do those in our adult range; all components are as light and child-focused as possible.
We use 1x drivetrains with rapid-fire shifters to make shifting simple and, again, reduce the overall weight.
The Matts Junior + bikes have rigid forks as cheap suspension forks tend to work poorly and weigh a lot. Instead we use fat 2.4″ tyres to provide plenty of comfort and grip.
All bikes have a focus on longevity; not just the high quality paint finish, protected by a lacquer coat to keep the bike looking fresh for hand me downs or sale but also the flip-flop stem and spacers allowing for growth, extending the life of Matts Junior+ bikes.
