"Engineered by SCOOL". Our developers of the ACADEMY Bikes, in cooperation with the German Institute for Orthopaedics, Osteopathy and Sports Medicine (DIOOS), under the direction of Dr. medical Andreas Elsner has succeeded in developing ultra-light junior bikes that meet the latest ergonomic requirements. All models are lighter than 40% of a normal child's weight, and the frames with deep and narrow bottom brackets allow for narrow, child-friendly leg guidance. Short pedal cranks and the upright sitting position allow you to put your feet on the ground at all times and still ensure an ergonomic knee position while driving.
Are you looking for a stylish but ultra-light 26-inch youth bike?
We proudly present: Our ACADEMY GRADE 6!
A design that is trendy but not out of fashion, paired with an exceptionally light weight, makes our ACADEMY GRADE 6 the ideal partner for young people and teens with style who value comfortable handling and ultimate riding fun at the same time.
Thanks to its classic design, the ACADEMY 26 inch children's bike is suitable for both girls and boys.
TAKE IT EASY! WHY YOU SHOULD CHOOSE A LIGHT YOUTH BIKE.
In addition to the size, the weight of the youth bike in particular is a decisive criterion when choosing the right 26-inch bike for children and young people. The reason for this is best explained using a simple calculation example: While the weight of an ordinary adult bike is usually around 20 percent of its body weight, this value can be between 40 and 80 percent for a child or young person, depending on the bike model.
Would you like a little more? Please do not!
A youth bike that is too heavy takes effort, can cause frustration and, in the worst case, even lead to accidents. With a light 26-inch bike you get going faster, climbs are much easier to master and you are better in corners.
Light as a feather: All models of our ACADEMY bikes weigh 40 percent less than the weight of an average child.
Flyweight: Our ACADEMY GRADE 6 youth bike with 26 inches weighs just 9 kilograms.
We recommend the 26-inch children's bike for children aged 10 to 14 and a height of 140 to 165 centimetres.
The design of the 26-inch youth bike is perfectly tailored to the ergonomic requirements of children and young people. The frames with deep and narrow bottom brackets allow for narrow and child-friendly leg guidance, while short pedal cranks and an upright sitting position ensure that the feet can reach the ground optimally. And all this with an ergonomic knee position while driving.
Equipped in this way, children and young people always reach their destination easily and, above all, safely.
We value quality: From 20 inches, our light Academy Bikes are equipped with Shimano Claris gears. The durable, low-maintenance 8-speed drive offers optimal gear steps, while the easy and intuitive to use DUAL CONTROL gear lever ensures a high level of driving comfort.
The goal when developing the ACADEMY Bikes was to develop a light bike for children and young people that is fun and at the same time satisfies the necessary orthopedic and ergonomic aspects. For this reason, the ACADEMY models were developed in cooperation with the German Institute for Orthopedics and Sport (DIOOS) Bielefeld.
The result is impressive: A light children's and youth bike in the range from 16 to 26 inches with a well thought-out design and a stylish look.
