Avanti launches new range of MTBs for kids at ₹26,000
Avanti Bikes, the bicycle maker from New Zealand that is making waves in the Indian market, has launched a new range of Mountain Bikes aimed at children and teens for India. Launched by Scott Sports, Avanti has introduced three bicycles that aim to introduce the idea of lifestyle mountain biking to kids in India. Let’s take a look at all three.
Avanti Shadow 24
The starting point of the range, meant for kids, the Avanti Shadow 24 has a lightweight alloy frame that has an integrated head tube. The bike also features a lightweight alloy fork at the front. It has a gear system with a gear guard at the rear to save it from the rough use and abuse that kids will no doubt subject it to as they learn the tricks of riding off-road. The Avanti Shadow 24 starts at ₹26,000.
Avanti Spice 24
Similar in almost all ways to the Shadow, the Avanti Spice 24 also has a lightweight alloy frame and fork design allied to an integrated head tube. The bike also features a twist shifter on the grips that will be easier for the pre-teens that it is aimed at, who will be at a more advanced stage of learning how to ride bicycles properly. The Spice 24 starts at ₹26,000 as well.
Black Thunder MTB series
Aimed at teenagers who are more advanced in their knowledge and ability at the handlebar, the Black Thunder MTB series has two models in the range. With a more tough frame, the bicycle also has wider tyres and disc brakes that increase its abilities off the road and enable it to accomplish more for the older kids who will ride this bike. The Avanti Black Thunder 1 is priced at ₹35,000 while the Avanti Black Thunder LE is priced at ₹39,700.
Speaking at the launch, Jaymin Shah, Managing Director, Scott Sports India said “The Avanti Kids bikes are aimed at providing maximum fun for enthusiastic kids who enjoy riding their bikes for experiencing adventure as they grow. Our gear systems are designed to provide maximum control for young kids and the frames are built to last all the adventures that come with childhood”
