Skid 16 is finished with a kid's specific saddle, smaller, narrower bars, smaller diameter grips, reach adjustable bars, reach adjustable brakes and a shorter crankset with smaller pedals - all to suit smaller riders perfectly.
Skid 16 features a frame optimized for young riders. Trickle-down technology means that the new frame benefits from our leading platforms. The frame tubes are mechanically formed into complex shapes to increase strength and stiffness, minimizing weight and excess material use making for a lighter frame.
The chainguard completely covers the chain and chainrings. This keeps your kid clean and hands and feet from potential hazards.
Geometry on our kids bicycles are designed to improve balance and comfort moving the rider in a more natural feeling position. With better balance and more comfort, confidence is improved. This makes for swift riding progression.
The Skid frame features mounting points for fenders. The bikes come fitted with front and rear fenders as well as a front basket for carrying essentials.
The Skid 16 comes with training wheels.

Lower standover means that the Skid 16 can be ridden by both girls and boys with more room for movement. This improves control and confidence when learning to pedal and balance.
Skid 16 comes with V-brakes. V-brakes offer good performance and the lever pull is light for young riders. Levers are reach adjustable for smaller hands. Full-length cables keep brakes working better for longer, and maintenance easier.
