An internally geared hub offers a wider gear range than a single speed, while remaining simple to use and virtually maintenance-free. The easy-to-use trigger shifter has two light action buttons to shift the three gears, even when the bike’s not being pedaled. Internally geared hubs shift anywhere. Stationary at a stop sign? Shift gears. Half way up a hill? Click away. Expert bike geometry centers weight between the rider’s hands and seat, which creates a stable, quick-handling bike. The front and rear Tektro V-brakes brakes, grips and 19 mm diameter handlebars are designed specifically for little hands, and the slim, junior race-style vegan leather saddle is designed to maximize a rider’s range of motion while minimizing chafing and weight. Your child will ride the Owl on trails, to school, all over the bike park and probably sleep with it in their room. (Sorry about that!) Fits riders with a 19 to 23-inch inseam best.
