Product Details

Ridgeback Dimension 16

This Ridgeback for boys and girls from around 4 to 7 years old stands out for being a lighter weight kids' bicycle, perfect for pavements, cyclepaths and roads.

  • The Ridgeback Dimension street bike is a lighter weight alternative to a kids' MTB
  • Its 6061 aluminium frame is as lightweight as you'll find at this price
  • Major components such as the wheel rims, brakes, handlebars and stem are aluminium alloy so they're also lighter weight than steel parts
  • Its steel rigid fork is lighter weight than any suspension fork
  • Its 16x1.5 inch tyres are lighter weight and smoother rolling than 2 inch wide knobbly treads
  • These smoother tyres still offer the cushioning, comfort and grip you'd expect on an adult hybrid bike's tyres
  • V-brakes have all the stopping power a young 'un needs, and they're probably the easiest to service
  • No gears also saves weight and keeps the bike simple
  • The 250mm long alloy seatpost offers room for growth
  • Did we mention that this Ridgeback Dimension is probably the lightest weight kids' bike you'll find at this price?
  • See our blog, What to look for when buying a kids' bike

Here's how Ridgeback describe the Dimension 16

'Lighter and more versatile than an MTB, a Dimension series Ridgeback combines the principles of a Metro hybrid with a specification and features designed for smaller riders.

Dimension combines a triple butted alloy frame with lightweight and robust components ideal for regular use.

Utilising stainless spokes and alloy rims, the Dimension has an all alloy parts mix to ensure that its weight remains low.

With a high quality specification to provide the necessary durability to allow the bike to be passed on to a second child, a Ridgeback Dimension is ideal for younger riders who cycle more frequently.'
