The Scott Voltage JR 16 inch is a well-specified first bike for children who are just learning how to ride. It comes with stabilising training wheels, which will let them get to grips with the basics of cycling before allowing them to step out without help at a later date. Like all Scott bikes this is well made and compiled with carefully selected components that all complement one another. In this saturated area of the market however, is it worth picking up for your little one?

Scott Voltage JR 16 Inch 2011 Overview

The Scott Voltage JR 16 Inch has, as its name suggests, a 16-inch frame, which is suitable for younger children. It is made from a strong alloy and has rigid forks. First time riders do not need to worry about dealing with gears as this is a single speed bike and the chain is kept out of harm’s way beneath a full guard. This will prevent snagging and keep dinky fingers away from the potentially dangerous gears and moving parts. Unlike some first bikes this has brakes on both the front and rear tyres made by Tektro so you can be sure that it has adequate stopping power. Once the child has got the hang of riding with the training wheels in place, you can easily remove them and give them a much more grown up looking ride in a matter of seconds.

The Scott Voltage JR 16 inch mixes bright yellow and lime green on its frame and chain guard to present a look that the kids are sure to enjoy. It has distinctive branding marking it out as part of the Voltage range. The owner is sure to have bragging rights over their friends and its looks hint at the fun times that it can offer its rider.
