The Microshift Acolyte Super Short Derailleur allows the Alpha Series bikes to use an 11-38t cassette. This gives 90% more gear range than other comparable bikes.
Microshift is the only drivetrain maker to focus on kids sized shifters. Easy-to-reach triggers and ultra-light shifting action make this the #1 shifter for kids.
Short stems, handlebars sized to match shoulder width, easy-to-reach brakes, and a kid-friendly shifter. All features that give the rider control of their steed.
Low standover allowing young riders to get on a bigger wheel earlier. Bigger wheels roll faster, offer more traction, and roll over obstacles with less effort. Upright seating position with just enough weight over the front of the bike to maintain control and balance. A low center of gravity that's designed to keep the riders weight "in" the bike, rather than on top. Short chainstays keep the bike agile, while a slack front end keeps things stable at all speeds.
HEIR cranks use specific lengths and widths to match young riders pedaling ergonomics. The Dual Alloy Chainguards keep the chain on in all terrain, while protecting the rider's pants from getting caught.
