MEC Col XS Bicycle - Youths


See available road bikes


A bike that gives younger riders access to real speed. In fact, don't be surprised if they beat you to the top of the hill. The Col XS's frame is shaped to provide a fast riding position that feels nimble on the corners and comfortable on the straights. Caliper brakes keep the velocity in check, and Alex Rims and Vittoria tires offer a responsive connection to the road. Overall, this is a quality bike that feels quick and opens up longer ride potential for every member of the fam.
