A new bike is a critical investment for families. Especially now, when parents are looking for safe, fun ways for their kids to get out and get active. Specialized knows that greater comfort opens the door for more riding. With kids’ bikes, comfort comes from a bike that fits well, and a design that’s kid-focused. Because of their growth spurts and growth patterns, the perfect fitting kids bike is a short-lived “just right.” Not only do kids deserve class-leading bikes, but they also deserve a bike that fits better, for longer.
“A better fit means more comfort, leading to more rides, kick-starting a lifetime of riding. We’re here to inspire that.” -Specialized Development Team
Specialized asked, and parents said they want a bike that fits their kids for about 30 months or three summers. The Specialized teams did their research and found that kids ages 5-12 grow in their arms and legs faster than their torso. So, they needed to make a bike that was proportional and adjustable for quickly growing arms and legs to achieve the perfect fit multiple times in the bike’s lifetime.
