Kids aren’t daft, and there comes a time when they’ll want a bike as good as mum and dad’s. With the Acid 240 Hybrid Rookie SLX, now they can. It features the same Bosch Active drive unit and battery as many of our adult hybrids, so your young rider has the power boost they need to ride further, faster and longer – good news for family outings. The Suntour air fork is easily adjustable to suit smaller, lighter riders – we even used a thinner handlebar and grips for better comfort and control with small hands. Shimano’s 10-speed gears are super reliable and offer a great range, and powerful hydraulic disc brakes safely rein in any excess enthusiasm. It’s good to go.
