The main feature, which sets this kid’s bike apart from the similar options at this point in Scott’s range, is the presence of mechanical disc brakes from Tektro. It maintains the same high standard of components throughout, but for kids who are getting passionate about cycling, this is definitely a worthy choice because it goes beyond the more basic models to provide precision, handling and high octane thrills.

The 24-inch frame is fashioned from light alloy and its Voltage Octagon tubing looks reassuringly chunky without giving the bike any extra weight. The front fork features suspension with 50mm of travel to give the rider a smoother time in the saddle without compromising traction. Of course, the disc brakes are a definite improvement over the standard callipers, which are available on bikes of this type designed with kids in mind. With 18 gears the Scott Voltage JR 24 Inch Disc is a good all-rounder, capable of taking on difficult terrain or the local roads without compromising in either situation.

The mostly grey frame of this bike is juxtaposed with green elements on the handlebars, saddle and white front fork. It does not look as playful as some of the other Scott bikes in the junior ranges but if your child is looking for a focused ride, they will not be disappointed. The one issue with this, like many other bikes in this category, is that the bike is a little biased towards the masculine rider from a style point of view. This may not be an issue in most cases but young girls might want something a little more decorative and less stern.
