Scott Voltage JR 24-inch 2011 Kids Bike

You can never tell whether or not you are nurturing a future sporting great unless you provide them with the equipment to make sure that they can fulfil their potential. Of course, most children do not grow up to be competitive cyclists but buying them a good bike that will last them for years is a good way to ensure that they get some exercise and also gain a little bit of independence. For kids aged between nine and eleven, the Scott Voltage JR 24 inch bike is a sensible model to consider because it is in keeping with the quality and durability of Scott’s adult bikes whilst being proportioned for children who love cycling.

The alloy frame of the Scott Voltage JR 24 inch is strong and light, sporting a front fork with a shock from the RST Capa range that will absorb bumps and take landings safely after airtime is grabbed. 18 gears with Shimano components and brake levers from Tektro mean that there is plenty of top range pedigree to be found on this bike. Kids will not necessarily care about branding but it is a good measure of the bike’s overall performance for adults who are looking at the specifications in order to make a quick decision.

The Scott Voltage JR 24 inch bike is predominantly a bold green colour although the white forks and grey saddle provide a bit of diversity and contrast to the design. Kids like to own bikes that stand out from the crowd and when you have a group of friends who go riding together, this bike will certainly make a memorable impression.

Like many cyclists, I've been riding since I was very young and despite now being less-young, I love it just as much. I've done my time on road bikes, have cycled throughout the UK, including Lands End to John O' Groats (yes, uphill!) and now have fun on a mountain bike, in the hills and doing charity bike rides.
