Your little one might love to ride, but that doesn't mean they'll be doing Trans-Provence this summer. That's why Specialized made their Hotrock 24 with plenty of gear range to tackle the neighborhood hills, and enough front end travel to ride beginner's trails confidently. Of course, it also features a lightweight, yet durable, A1 Premium Aluminum frame that's designed to take a hit while they find their legs on the pump track. Chatter and bumps, meanwhile, are handled by the coil-sprung SR Suntour fork's 50mm of travel. Then there are a whole host of other components that are plenty tough enough to stand up to your little ripper, so you can rest assured that you'll be spending more time riding with your kid and less time waiting in line at the repair counter. - Tough, light, and durable, the A1 Premium Aluminum frame is built to stand up to years of tough riding. - SR Suntour suspension fork offers 50mm of coil-sprung travel that smooths out bumpy, rough terrain. - The 8-speed Shimano Tourney shifts smoothly and is tough enough for abuse.
The Capri 2.4's swooping frame design has a purpose other than great looks: with 24” wheels this bike offers a low standover and low center of gravity for stable, secure riding and control. Jamis increased the wheelbase length over their 20-inch mountain bike to offer even greater stability, security, and comfort. A seven-speed drivetrain with Shimano's Revoshift twist shifters is easy to learn how to shift and master and is enough gearing to get around the neighborhood comfortably. Just one chainring in front simplifies shifting, too. There's a full-wrap chainguard to keep the chain in place and clothes and legs out of the chain's way, and Jamis pedals offer a non-slip insert that keeps feet and shoes in full contact even when wet for safe and secure pedaling. Every Capri comes equipped with a kickstand to protect the bike from the typical dump-n-run parking damage— prevention that makes for a much happier new bike owner!
Every Jamis youth bike uses size-specific items like grips, saddles and cranks that enhance comfort and control by providing the best possible bike fit. We focus on designing frames with low stand-overs to take much of the awkwardness out of getting on board and dismounting after. We trim as much weight as we can with lightweight aluminum frames on many of the youth models and use aluminum parts where possible (the limiting factor here is working within a youth-bike-appropriate price point) to work towards that make-it-as-light-as-possible goal. - Enduro design, 6061 aluminum frame - Unicrown, 6061 aluminum fork - Alloy 36H black anodized wheel set - 7-speed Shimano Tourney components
Jamis' lightweight and durable aluminum XR.24 frame is easier to pedal than steel and it's spec'd with a replaceable rear derailleur hanger for increased frame longevity. That rigid fork isn't just for cool looks; its light weight means greater control and safety for young riders. Compared to bigger 26” wheeled bikes, the smaller diameter 24” wheels and shorter 12” frame of the XR.24 provides more standover clearance and a lower center of gravity for enhanced control and safety, so young, aspiring mountain bikers can learn to ride both on and off road comfortably, securely, and safely. The double chainring crankset offers increased gear range (14-speeds) with an alloy outer rock guard to protect the chainrings from contact with curbs or logs, and it helps keep pants and legs clean too! Non-quick release hubs and seat post clamps ensure that wheels and seats remain securely and safely attached to the frame and fork.
