E-450x8 | Age: 6 - 9 years | Height: 115 - 145 cms
We have combined our low gravity concept ergonomic frame with the very best cassette gears and tough wheels for the greatest safety and rideability.
It delivers a dramatic advantage in handling and comfort - with each tube of the frame customized to reduce weight and improve handling, and superior control and bump dampening ability with our CRM forks. Just 10kgs.
Design - With the E-450x8 frame we customised each tube to reduce weight and improve handling. Another crucial ingredient to the clever design is the improved control and bump dampening ability of our CRM forks - giving a dramatic advantage in handling and comfort.
Little details such as increased knee to handlebar clearance for growing bodies, a longer wheelbase for stable handling, and adjustable pedal position for growing legs, all make the E-450x8 the best entry-geared bike on the market for kids. Durabilty is also a key factor in the E-450x8 such as the added extra strength in the wheels and the tyres.
Performance - Kids love the idea of gears but they give them a tough time! ByK have gone for the top of the range in all departments. Their unique design offers a longer chain length, helping with chain flex. Then they use the direct pulling 1:1 SRAM gears - fantastic because every movement in the lever reflects the same movement in the derailler. Also, by using a cassette hub, ByK have eliminated cluster wobble and the demons of throwing chains off gears.
Safety - The custom-sized V-Brakes are calibrated for power and ergonomic fit. The innovative frame improves balance and control to help each rider operate at the safest level possible.

How To Determine Your Size
ByK Bikes are not categorised by the old imperial sizings of the past (like 12", 16", 20", or 24"). They use the metric system to describe their wheel sizes as 200mm, 250mm, 350mm, 450mm, 540mm and 620mm. Please use this chart to determine the bike size best suited to your young rider.
