The Chic is an essential accessory for all budding fashionistas. With coordinating accessories and delicate flower design, it is the bike every little girl wants to have!
Chic has a lightweight aluminium frame and lower top tube for easy mounting and dismounting alongside a front V-brake modulator. This regulates the force that goes down to the front aluminium V-brake resulting in smoother braking and aluminium/resin brake levers, which are designed to be easily operated by little fingers and are fitted with an adjustment screw to fit smaller hands. It also has low rise handlebars which allow a more upright riding position giving little riders increased visibility.
Aluminium rims give an improved surface for the brake blocks to brake against and junior non-slip pedals, a safety feature Raleigh has been fitting to Children’s bikes for years, which have been fitted with rubber pads to prevent feet slipping off. Each pair of non-slip pedals is carefully colour matched to fit the bike design and narrow 1.5 tyres with a modern style tread pattern make it suitable for riding on all surfaces.
The Chic features full Shimano transmission which includes Shimano freewheels, derailleurs and Shimano Revoshift shifters. This component mix will improve your child’s experience of learning how to change gears. In Raleigh’s experience, this style of gear shifter is easier for children and enables them to keep their hands fully on the handlebar whilst they are changing gear. The bike also has rear derailleur protection which prevents damage to the gears if the bike is dropped to the ground.
Raleigh focuses on every detail of design when it comes to their bikes, with a colour co-ordinated saddle, grips, tyres and brake cables, as well as having graphics applied under a clear coat to ensure they don’t fade or become damaged over time, longevity and enjoyment are provided in masses with Chic. The bike also comes equipped with an aluminium kickstand to ensure it continues to remain damage-free.
