Our Explore bicycles are among the lightest weight, best-equipped kids bikes for the money. As always with our Revolution bikes, we achieve this alchemy by stripping the bicycle to the essentials so we can offer all you need in a kids’ bike and not a single thing extra.
Brimming with confidence-inspiring name-brand brakes, gears and tyres the Revolution Explore 20”-wheeler is, for the money, one of the lightest weight and best equipped 20” wheel bikes for kids from 5/6 years old.
The Revolution Explore 24” wheeler bike achieves the same trick for youngsters from around 8-14.
Good things shared by every Revolution Explore
Quality frame & fork – made to last
The 7005 aluminium alloy frame and hi-tensile steel fork are strong (lifetime guaranteed) and, for the money, relatively lightweight.
The steel rigid fork is lighter than any suspension fork.
With just a single Shimano Revo 6-speed twist shifter to learn to master, our Explore bikes offer an easy introduction to gear changing.
The alloy wheels are built with 36 spokes to cope better with potholed roads and cyclepaths.
The wheels and saddles are bolted on to make them more secure when the bike is left unattended. (While quick release wheels and seatpost clamps can be convenient for the rider, they can also be a gift for opportunistic scallies intent on nicking bike parts.)
Every Revolution bike is shod by Kenda – one of the world’s best-respected tyre manufacturers.
The Revolution Explores’ 20×1.5 or 24×1.75 inch hybrid tyres are smoother rolling than a junior mountain bike’s 2-inch wide knobblies, while remaining grippy, hardwearing, comfortably cushioned and puncture resistant.
Frequently spotted on adult four-figure bikes, Tektro Brakes are among the most reliable brands in bicycling.
You’ll find confidence-inspiring Tektro brakes on every 2016 Revolution bike.
Believe it or not, the number of decals on many bikes run to double figures once you start counting the stickers on the wheel rims, handlebars, top caps and all. We’ve taken that number down to just three – just enough to identify the bike and register its legal CE compliance. Fewer decals mean more cost savings we pass on to you.
