The Falcon Oxide Boy’s Mountain Bike has been designed specifically for junior riders looking for a great ride combining style and performance. Unlike many other, Falcon design their junior full suspension bikes with an un-interrupted frame meaning that it can accommodate a longer seat-post and provide greater adjustment as any youngster grows. Unlike old fashioned “Y” frames, this provides a much greater range of adjustment and allows for a stronger frame and more enjoyable ride. The geometry of the frame has been designed specifically for a younger rider to make the riding position ideally suited, not just a small version of an adult bike, whilst the hi-tensile steel construction provides a strong and hard-wearing frame.
The front suspension fork and rear shock absorber, which is set to the weight of a younger rider, soaks up bumps when riding, making for a more enjoyable ride on rougher terrain. The neon red colour jump out from the stealth black components and grey forks. The matching Falcon branded saddle ties in to the strong vibrant colour of the frame and has extra padding for improved comfort. As well as being great to look at, the Oxide has a great spec to match. 6-speed gearing is powered by a Shimano branded rear derailleur and light action Shimano revo-shift rotational shifters, creating smooth gear changing whilst never having to remove your hands from the handlebars. The double-sided chainwheel guard protects fingers and clothes but also prevents the chain from slipping off the cogs. MTB style pedals provide re-assuring grip and the soft compound handlebar grips are a pleasure to hold.
Braking is supplied by reliable front and rear V-brakes which are controlled by reach-adjustable brake levers so they can be shortened to accommodate smaller hands. The Falcon Oxide Mountain Bike is ideally suited to grow with any young rider thanks to the 200 mm seat post and quill handlebar stem which provides ample height adjustment. Saddle rail adjusters provide further room to refine the set-up by allowing the saddle to be moved backwards or forwards to suit. The wheels are constructed from strong, yet lightweight alloy rims and knobbly MTB tyres for reliable grip when out riding. The Falcon Octane Dual Suspension Mountain Bike is a bike that stands out for all of the right reasons and a great bike for learning to use gears and suspension.
