Show Description

Like a hole-in-one or a quick cross-court shot, the Ace is a phenom. With higher quality components than most kids' bikes, it's better value, more durable and easier to ride. Your child will spend so much time cruising around on the Ace that you'll wish it came in your size too.

  • Lightweight aluminum frame is durable and ready to hit the trails.
  • 24 x 2in. tires with all-purpose knobby tread are aggressive enough for use on most trails, and works well on hardpack too.
  • Tektro V-brakes provides the clamping power required to lock that rear wheel like a pro.
  • RST Capa T24 suspension fork adds comfort and adjusts to varying rider weights.
  • Preload feature on the fork lets you adjust it for different rider weights.
  • MEC flat pedals provides a good grip.
  • Build with SRAM and Shimano® components.
  • Sized for kids from 8 to 11 years, or about 135 to 150cm (4ft. 5in. to 4ft. 11in.).
  • Bikes are covered by MEC's Rocksolid Guarantee and Bike Service Agreement. You can bring your bike to any MEC bike shop for free adjustments and minor maintenance for a year after purchase.
  • MEC bikes were designed in Canada. Everything from the frames to the graphics was developed at the MEC Head Office in Vancouver, BC.
