Early Rider Belter Kids 20'' Trail 3S

The Early Rider Belter Kids' 20'' Trail 3S is among the most advanced 20 inch wheel mountain bike for kids from 5/6 years old.

Or as Singletrack magazine put it so elegantly, 'we can suggest wholeheartedly that if you are in the market for a proper kid’s MTB bike that could stand happily next to your own dream bike, you need look no further.' See full review.

S for Suspension
The Trail 3S takes the key elements of the standard Early Rider Belter Kids 20'' Trailand adds a particularly child-friendly, light, air-sprung, 50mm-travel Spinner suspension fork for that extra level of comfort and control on the trails.

  • Manufacturer's published weight: 9kg - this is our lightest weight 20-inch wheel kids mountain bike with front suspension.
  • Making it a couple of kilos (that's around 25%) lighter than rival 20-inch wheel mountain bikes creates a bicycle that's easier for a 6 or 7 years olds to control and manoeuvre.
  • Knocking a kilo off the weight of a kids' bike is the equivalent of taking 4 or 5 kilos off an adult bike. That's a lot. In adult bike terms, reducing a bike's weight five kilos is like the difference between a 14kg utilitarian steel bike and a svelte 9kg carbon road bike.
  • 'Trail 3' refers to the bike's wide ratio 3-speed SRAM hub gear.
  • This type of gear is particularly child friendly because, unlike a derailleur system, it allows junior to shift gear when the bike is stationary.
  • With the gear change mechanism enclosed in the rear hub, hub gears are intrinsically cleaner and require less maintenance than derailleur systems.
  • To make it even cleaner, quieter and lower maintenance, instead of a traditional steel bicycle chain, the transmission features a belt drive, which will never rust and will never need oiled.
  • Frequently spotted on £1,000 adult bikes, Avid BB5 disc brakes are ball bearing actuated for smooth, dependable operation, so they'll require less maintenance than regular rim brakes.
  • The front hub, the headset, the bottom bracket and the pedals also roll on cartridge sealed bearings for smooth operation and longevity.
  • To further ensure reliability, Early Rider bikes are equipped with trusted name-brand components: the saddle is made by Selle San Marco, the pedals by VP, the disc brakes by Avid, the tyres by Maxxis and the bars and stem by Ritchey.
  • Standover Height: 57cm - fits children from 5 to 6 years old till they are 9 or 10.

'The Trail 3S takes the Trail 3 and adds an air suspension fork for the hardtail MTB experience, but still keeping things nice and simple. Shod with Maxx Daddy tyres and Spinner forks, this bike has the 'proper' mountain bike look. Its amazing spec even retains the belt drive for a super smooth drive train. All the usual range refinements including a Ritchey finishing kit and sealed bearings throughout.'
