Roscoe 24 is a kids' mountain bike designed to build confidence on the trail. It takes cues from the adult Roscoe, but this ride was built from the ground up for kids. 2.8˝ mid-fat tyres, a 1x drivetrain and a wide-range cassette make Roscoe the ideal bike for little rippers who want to build skills and have a ridiculous amount of fun keeping up with Mum, Dad or an older sibling. Fit for riders 4’3” - 4’11” (129.5 -150 cm) tall.
THIS IS ONE AWESOME KIDS BIKE! THE BEST VALUE THRASHING BIKE AROUND!
It's right for you if...
Your little shredder is ready to hop off the neighbourhood streets and onto the trail, and you want to get them started the right way with a real-deal mountain bike that builds skills and confidence from the outset. If you're looking to teach your little one the wisdom of the trail, there's no better teaching tool than Roscoe.
The tech you get
A durable Alpha Gold Aluminium frame with a sloping top tube for added clearance, 24˝ wheels with mid-fat 2.8˝ tyres for added traction and stability, a 1x8 Shimano drivetrain with a wide-range cassette for hills and technical sections, mechanical disc brakes and loads of thoughtful details borrowed from adult MTB tech, like a closed front dropout and a tucked-in rear brake calliper so when kids drop their Roscoe it doesn't mean an automatic trip to the shop for a replacement part.
The final word
Give a kid a Roscoe and you'll make a mountain biker for life. Mid-fat tyres and a wealth of kid-specific design details make this bike the perfect introduction to the trail. If your little one is ready to tag along when you hit the singletrack, this is the kid-friendly set-up that's made to build confidence, skills and a healthy obsession with the world's greatest activity.
