Alpha Almunum Frame

With the same quickness and affordability that have historically made aluminium such a popular material, the Alpha Aluminum frame was created to offer more versatile frames. Using an all-encompassing strategy for frame design and production, Trek is able to fine-tune frames to be stiff where essential and supple where it is practical. You will therefore have more chances to enjoy your aluminium frame on the journey.

If you have Alpha Aluminum, you won’t have to second-guess going on a multi-day tour or hitting the gravel. Aluminum bikes are the only ones you’ll ever need for leisure, travel, exercise, and competition.

Linear Pull Brakes

A common type of brake is the linear pull. Despite being more simpler to adjust than conventional cantilever brakes, they are nonetheless cable-actuated. In comparison to cantilever brakes, pads are also more simpler to replace.
Good all-around; simple to instal and maintain; simple to find replacement pads for.
On a frame component known as a “braze-on,” each arm pivots. The pivots are situated below the rim, just like cantilevers. At a linkage and “noodle,” the cable housing fastens to one arm. A pinch bolt on the other arm is reached via the bare cable.

Shimano Revo Shift

The Shimano Tourney SL-RS45 shift lever offers simple and dependable shifting. By requiring only a twist of the thumb and index finger to shift, the REVOSHIFT shifter enables riders to keep a firm and stable grip on the handlebar. Compared to the SRAMs, the shifter is much smoother.

Oh! What a feeling

This bike can introduce your child to an enjoyable, healthy, and ecologically beneficial lifetime pastime.

Kids may easily change gears when their terrain changes thanks to the intuitive twist shift.

To increase visibility on family outings and solitary trips, you may swap out the saddle’s integrated handle for one with an integrated light mount.

Like all Precaliber bikes, this one has a lower frame height to make it simpler for kids to leap on and off.

Our Rating​

This tough, high-quality bike promotes enjoyment and trail skill development. With an 8-speed drivetrain and a front suspension fork that smooths down trails, it’s ideal for kids just starting out in off-road riding.

The Precaliber 24 with suspension is the ideal bike for adventurous neighbourhood riders who never intend to actually ride in the mountains since it strikes the optimum balance between being neither overly technical nor underwhelming.

The Trek Precaliber 24 is a win-win because it gives youngsters the awesome off-road appearance of a real mountain bike without the pricey high-end components that parents don’t want to pay for.

The Trek Precaliber 24 is a fantastic bike for kids eager to take on challenging jumps and trails around the neighborhood but not quite ready to ride real mountain bike trails because it offers great quality and performance for the price.
