The Raleigh Zero 16 Inch Boy’s Bike has everything; Style, features and function. Designed with sophisticated young riders in mind, every element of the Zero has been considered from colour trends to the high specification parts it is fitted with.
The bike has a lightweight aluminium frame and hydroformed tubes which add strength to the frame alongside a front V-brake modulator. The V-brake modulator regulates the force that goes down to the front aluminium V-brake resulting in smoother braking and aluminium/resin brake levers, which are easily operated by little fingers and fitted with an adjustment screw to alter the sizing. The Zero also has low rise handlebars which allow a more upright riding position giving little riders increased visibility and a height adjustable stem allowing for children’s growth. The handlebar area is finished off with softer dual compound co-ordinated grips.
Aluminium rims give an improved surface for the brake blocks to brake against and junior non-slip pedals, a safety feature Raleigh has been fitting to Children’s bikes for years, are fitted with rubber pads which prevent feet slipping off. Each pair of non-slip pedals are carefully colour matched to fit the bike design.

Everyone remembers their first Raleigh, right? For 125 years Raleigh has been creating market-leading bikes in Nottingham. Chances are that you rode a Raleigh when you were younger – and maybe you still do now. Raleigh are just as famous for their iconic children’s bikes, like the Burner, Grifter and Chopper, as they are for cutting-edge bikes like TI-Raleigh Tour de France winning 853 steel frame or the Militis carbon race machine. But today they’re much more than just a bike brand. They own several other bike and accessory brands, including Diamondback and RSP, and they distribute a whole lot more to cycle shops around the UK.
