The perfect mountain bike for kids loving life outdoors—blending the right-size frame, the right spec, and more attitude.

Trail 26 is built for progressing riders ages 9 to 13 between 4'8" and 5' who are too big for kids' bikes, but not quite big enough for adult bikes. Take it to the next level on the bike path or grow new skills on the dirt.

Geared-Up and Ready to Shred:
The perfect mountain bike for kids loving life outdoors, blending the right-size frame, the right spec, and more attitude.

Where it thrives:
Leisurely rides, Challenging trails

What it's built for:
Trail-riding fun, Handling, Agility

- Lightweight SmartForm C3 Alloy frame and Suntour suspension fork
- Shimano 8-speed Tourney derailleur and Revo Twist Shifter
- Tektro cable-actuated disc brakes

Big wheels, big fun:
Full-sized 26-inch wheels eat bumps for breakfast and roll over roots with ease. They are more maneuverable than the larger 27.5-inch wheels found on many adult bikes and keep the stand-over height low for stability and plenty of room to grow.

Sized just right:
We crafted the Trail 26 with growing groms in mind, so the sizing and geometry are perfectly tuned for big kids who are ready for the next step toward adult bikes.

One Size: 4'8" - 5'0"

Ready to rip:

The Trail 26 frame is lightweight for rocketing up hills and durable for tackling the rough stuff, plus it uses powerful disc brakes for quick stopping even on the steepest hills. Built to boost the fun, wherever you ride.
