Academy bikes form part of Dawes’ premium children’s range, the term ‘premium’ is perfectly apt – these are special! Each Academy bike is built around a lightweight, triple butted alloy frame using carefully selected components that are perfectly in proportion with the intended rider for this 26” wheel, 8 speed machine. A wide ratio 11-34 tooth cassette provides a wide enough range of 8 gears, using just a single shifter on a ‘one by’ drivetrain keeps things simple and functional for the younger rider. The short, 152mm, crank arms are perfectly in proportion and the 32 tooth chain ring makes the Academy 26” easy to pedal. Narrow alloy handlebar and the choice of a 13” or 15” frame allow you to find the perfect fit for your young cycling enthusiast.
