The Scott Scale JR 24 Inch is a kid’s bike aimed at youngsters aged between nine and eleven which should give them years of fun in the great outdoors, whether it is riding around the local area or taking things more seriously and heading out into the countryside to test its mettle off road. The bike is set up for fast paced fun and it is grounded by some competent components that will give kids a good deal of control over the ride.

The special alloy frame is set up to echo the look and abilities of the full sized adult bikes which means it is accompanied by an RTS Capa front fork with 50mm of travel, Tektro brakes and gear components from Suntour and Shimano. This melting pot of big name components blends seamlessly together and even if the rider is not into this type of riding to begin with, once they have taken a spin it will be impossible to get them off it.

As kids get older they begin to throw off childish things and the Scott Scale JR 24 Inch does not patronise them with bright colours or designs. Instead, its black frame with red and white flashes shows a more serious, adult side that still passes the ‘cool’ test. This scaled down racer is definitely a looker, although kids tend to have their own ideas about what is fashionable and what is not, so it may not be to the taste of every potential owner. This does not detract from its performance but it is something to bear in mind.
