Your early grade-schooler will love the Owl. It accelerates and stops fast! 1 speed, internal brake cable routing and rigid fork make Owls lightweight, sleek, tough-as-nails machines. Kids start to bike-pack with the Owl. 20” tires offer clearance for bigger stair drops, wider jumps and bigger adventures. The ride to elementary school just got real.

Best fit for riders with an inseam of 19" to 23". First time riders feel safest with their bottom on the saddle and their feet flat on the ground. That's how a child with a 21" inseam will fit the Owl with the seat post dropped as low as possible. Once kids get more comfortable on two wheels, they'll want to sit on the saddle with the balls of their feet on the ground. Thus, a confident rider with a 19" inseam and a first-time rider with a 21" inseam may both feel comfortable with the same set-up on their Owl.
