Performance Road 26 Inch Red

Performance Road 26 Inch Red

Drawing on years of experience Raleigh has developed a range of premium spec bikes, which all children will enjoy riding.

Raleigh performance bikes are an eye-catching premium collection with performance specification components for the more serious junior riders. Not only will the colourful frames and graphics allow your child to stand out, but the lightweight aluminium frames with 4130 chromoly rigid forks will give your child the competitive edge, a great stepping stone for athletes of the future.

The aluminium frames are well proportioned with customised aluminium stems and cranks which have been sized with Children in mind and were custom made for Raleigh to ensure the best fit and most comfortable ride. The frames are triple and double butted to ensure they are strong but also lightweight for little riders.

Our 26" Performance bikes come with Kenda tyres, which host small block tread pattern making the wheels slimmer and lighter than the majority of the other children's bikes on the market. The tyres are suitable for riding on all terrains including traffic-free paths, roads or on cycling club nights.

The Tektro aluminium V-brakes and levers ensure safe braking, with the aluminium levers being adjustable to the size of your child's reach. Raleigh Performance bikes host a 32T chainring for easy pedalling and a double chainguard to stop the chain coming off, preventing crashes and dirty trousers!

Raleigh Performance bikes feature a customised saddle which has been designed to be a perfect fit for your child and the quick release seat post allows easy height adjustment. All our performance bikes are supplied with a detachable plastic mudguard to use if you are riding anywhere. Unlike our smaller Performance bikes, the 26" features 8 speed Shimano Revoshift gears which provide an easy range of gears for Children to deal with uphill and downhill.

Raleigh Performance bikes are perfect for all cycling stars of the future!
