CHIC 20 INCH blue
The Chic’s delicate floral design is influenced by the tropical paradise beaches of Mexico that the White Cosmos flower is native to. Metallic pastel paint finishes create the perfect sophisticated look for the range and the Chic 20 in Blue is perfect for little girls embarking on their first cycling adventures with gears.
The lightweight Aluminium frame is easy to manoeuvre and has been adapted with a lower top tube to make getting on and off easier for your little girl even in her summer dresses. The Chic features low rise handlebars which help to promote a good riding position and ensure children are more aware of their surroundings plus the Aluminium prop stand is the perfect solution to keep the bike clean and prevent damage.
The Chic 20 boasts a full Shimano transmission which includes Shimano freewheels, derailleurs and Shimano Revoshift shifters; a component mix that will improve your child’s experience of learning how to change gears. In our experience, this style of gear shifter is easier for children to operate as it enables them to easily keep their hands fully on the handlebar while changing gear reducing those unwanted wobbles!
Aluminium V-brakes have been added for safe stopping plus a V-brake modulator has been included which regulates the force applied to the front aluminium V-brake resulting in smoother braking. The aluminium and resin brake levers featured on the bike have been selected to be easily operated by little fingers. An adjustment screw is also fitted allowing you to alter the sizing dependent on the size of your child’s hands. Narrow tyres have been selected for this model which feature a modern small block tread pattern making the wheels slimmer and lighter than the majority of the other children’s bikes on the market. These tyres are suitable for riding on all terrains including traffic free paths, roads and light trails.
Safety is a key concern when designing our children’s bikes and all components are designed to make riding as safe as possible for your child. Aluminium double-wall CNC wheel rims have been added to provide a further improved surface for the brake blocks to brake against plus we’ve colour matched them for style. Raleigh’s special junior non-slip pedals have been fitted featuring rubber pads to prevent feet slipping off. Each pair of non-slip pedals is carefully colour matched to fit the bike design.
We focus on every detail of design when it comes to our children’s bikes, and the Chic is no exception; with delicate graphics applied under a clear lacquer to ensure they don’t fade or become damaged over time plus a colour coordinated saddle, grips and brake cables to finish of that ‘chic’ look.
