About the productDawes Academy MTB 26 - Kids Bike 2018 purple

Using our tried and tested Academy triple butted frameset, with revised geometry for mountain biking, we’ve introduced super lightweight air suspension forks to all our new Academy MTB’s…something you don’t see everyday on kids bikes!  Combined with Tektro dual piston hydraulic disc brakes on the front and rear, ALEX DP17 double wall rims and Shimano Deore 9 speed Rapidfire gears, this 26″ mountain bike is likely to impress even the most daring of kids!  Weighing just 11.26kg, it’s light enough to pedal to your nearest trails, race round all day and, pedal back home again!


Just really impressed with the level of service. Thanks.
