    Skid 20 ME -Built for fun!

    With hard-wearing, scratch-resistant decals and a rigid alloy fork, the Skid 20 ME is the perfect first mountain bike for your youngster. Featuring 2'35" knobbly mountain bike tyres and a singlespeed drivetrain, this bike is suitable for riding trails, street, your local pump track or even to school and back. Skid features smaller contact points to suit smaller hands and shorter legs and an integrated kickstand and mudguards for convenience and all weather riding.

    Alloy rigid fork

    Skid 20 ME features a straight taper alloy rigid fork with QR dropout slots, disc brake mount and integrated fender mount. The rigid fork is color and decal matched to the frame. A rigid fork is durable and a great cost effective alternative for young riders not used to bicycle maintenance.

    Mechanically-formed 6061 Alloy frame

    Skid 20 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, resulting in a lighter weight frame and lighter complete bike.

    WHY IT’S BEST.

    1. Easy ride geometry - improved balance and comfort makes for quicker ride progression.
    2. Lightweight hydro formed alloy frame makes for a lighter complete bike. And smaller frame tubes is easier to grab with small hands.
    3. Wider tyres improve comfort and grip.
    4. Alloy wheels are lighter than steel wheels, and makes for a lighter complete bike. Alloy wheels also pedal easier for kids, and the wheels are more robust and stiff than comparitive steel wheels.
    5. Integrated kickstand as well as mudguards included, no need to buy additional accessories.
    6. Low standover makes the bike easier to mount, and stand over. This improves confidence.
