For the last few years, the XDS Strike 4.0 has been a popular choice amongst parents who are upgrading their kids' mountain bike from years ago. The Strike 4.0 has some key features which make it a standout choice for both kids and parents.
Equipped with Shimano gears and front suspension, it?s perfect for social rides with friends and commuting to school on bike paths, Rail Trails, dirt and gravel tracks.
What makes the Strike 4.0 a good stepping stone into adult bikes is the sizing. Frame sizes are available from XS to M, which means if your child is on the taller side of 9 years old they may be able to fit the XS frame size because it?s much smaller than a traditional adult frame.
The bigger 26-inch wheels will deliver a more stable ride too.
Often we get comments that the bigger wheel and bike will be harder to handle. This is true if the frame size and wheel size is too big. Otherwise, if the frame size is chosen correctly, the bigger wheels will be easier to ride. Big wheels also travel further than smaller 24-inch wheels, improving efficiency on longer rides.
A Shimano 21-speed gear set is used on the XDS Strike 4.0. These are quality entry-level gears, nothing too fancy - just reliable. The gears are actuated using a trigger shifter which is easier for kids to adapt to.
If you think the number of gears is overwhelming, then our mechanics can simplify the gears by locking the front gears, thereby converting it to a 7-speed bike. When you bring the bike in for its 1st or 2nd free service, it?s a simple task of unlocking the front gears. This way, the gears are introduced in stages; front, and the rear. Simple.
Front suspension helps keeps the bumps smooth on dirt and gravel tracks.
Brake levers are aluminium, and also feature an important reach adjustment. For most kids, reaching the brake levers can be a challenge, so Shimano has designed this lever so that it can be adjusted closer to the handlebar - reducing reach.
A quick release front and rear wheel make wheel changes quicker and easier.
Everything is stock standard; tyres can be replaced easily, as can brake pads once they wear out for maximum longevity.
XDS has a Lifetime Frame Warranty. Shimano has 2 years on their parts. 1 year on all else. And there are 2 complementary services that are valid for 12 months.
