The Academy children’s bikes are something a bit special. Built around a lightweight, triple butted alloy frame, these are perfect for the intended rider for this 26" wheel, 8 speed machine.

Why confuse life with too many gear ratios, when most riders stick to only a handful? Dawes stuck by this principle across the Academy range as when it comes to gears on a kids bike, quite often less is more!

Perfectly proportioned 152mm crank arms, easy to pedal 32T chainring, narrow handlebars and slimline quick release seat collar allow you to find the perfect fit for cycling enthusiasts.
