Vitus Energie 26 Youth CX Bike
Vitus Energie 26 Kids’ Cyclocross Bike: A versatile junior bike
The Vitus Energie 26 kids’ cyclocross bike is a ground-up rethink of how a bike should be built for growing bodies. A versatile cyclocross-style bike capable of racing between the tape or exploring on gravel or pavement, it’s optimized for smaller humans and built to help them grow as riders.
The Energie 26 uses disc brakes with short-reach shifters, ensuring that smaller hands always have their fingers in the right place for steering and braking. And for narrower shoulders, the handlebar is compact too, with a smaller drop and shorter reach to prevent the instability of over-stretching. Stable 38mm Kenda tires offer plenty of traction on variable terrain and thru-axles help stiffen the bike and make handling precise. Lastly a Microshift 8-speed drivetrain pairs with the short-reach shifters to keep shifting light, helping small hands tap through the gears with ease.
Though billed as a kids’ cyclocross bike, the Energie 26 is a great way to expose your budding cyclist to several bike disciplines through a single bike. Like adult cyclocross bikes, it’s a versatile build that’ll work exceptionally well for both road and gravel, in addition to being prime between the tape at your local CX race.
As adults, we know how awkward and inhibiting it can be to ride a bike that doesn’t fit properly. That’s why everything about the Energie 26 is optimized for children — from the narrower bottom bracket area to relieve pressure on young hips, to the short stem to improve the responsive handling. The Energie 26 is a cyclocross bike with features that give it the versatility to help your kids grow as riders whether on or off the race circuit.
