Prepare your family for a summer of cycling

The summer holidays are finally here so it’s time to start planning some fun family rides. The warmer weather at the end of the school year is the best time to build up your family’s confidence on the bike and on the road. It is a great opportunity for everyone to get their shorts on, throw a leg over the saddle and head out on local trails, bike paths and even playing fields.

Specialized Hotwalk (Boys’)

For the youngest in your brood, the Specialized Hotwalk is the perfect introduction to the motion and balance of cycling, without the technicality of pedalling. The A1 Premium aluminium frame is tough, light and durable, built to stand up to years of use. Its 12-inch wheels are wrapped in Rhythm Lite, 2 inch-wide tyres with a wire bead, making them all but invincible. Though the Hotwalk balance bike will not lend itself to a family ride to the pub, it will get your child ready for the step up to a more traditional bike complete with pedals and gears.

Riprock 20 

For a young cyclist, components, brand names and gear ratios are less important than the freedom of the road and track. The Riprock is all about enabling enthusiastic young riders to explore and advance with durable equipment that inspires confidence. The frame is constructed from A1 Premium Aluminium which is both lightweight and built to last. It was equipped with mechanical disc brakes, intuitive, no fuss, Shimano Revoshift gearing. No expense is spared in making this a high-performing and comfortable ride, with a custom SR Suntour XCT fork to absorb impacts or bumps in the trail.

Boy’s Hotrock 24 XC

The Hotrock is one step closer to the big time. The design is taken from that of a grown-up singletrack racer, constructed from durable and lightweight A1 Premium Aluminium. The coil-sprung SR Suntour fork and its 50mm of travel takes care of any road chatter, lumps and bumps, and the whole host of other components that are tough enough to stand up to the most relentless little racer.

Jynx Sport 650B (Women’s)

The Jynx is a model designed specifically for a no-stress, comfortable and confidence inspiring ride for the road or trail. The frame is constructed from A1 Premium Aluminium with the Women’s Sport Trail Geometry to optimise comfort and handling. The custom SR Suntour 650b suspension fork makes use of Multi-Circuit Damping technology to neutralise the bouncing effect on rough terrain. A Shimano Alivio rear derailleur partnered with Altus 8-speed shifters control the gears and immense stopping power is provided Shimano hydraulic discs.

Rockhopper Comp 29 (Men’s)

In time-honoured tradition, the Rockhopper is designed for longevity, durability and adventure. Designed around the lightweight A1 SL Aluminium frame is where efficiency and capability cross paths with its natural hardtail climbing ability and snappy confidence over any terrain. The compliant frame is fitted with a SR Suntour XCR-Air fork with 80/100mm suspension travel to smooth the road and Shimano Deore shifting. Enviable stopping power is provided by Shimano hydraulic disc brakes which round off a perfect all-rounder for a day in the sun with the family, or a session on the trails with your mates.
