Frog MTB 69
Hit the trails with the MTB 69, with lockout and compression control suspension forks that work in line with rider weight to achieve ultimate performance!
Experience smoother downhill control using hydraulic disc brakes and impactful suspension forks whilst tackling those uphill climbs like a champ, thanks to ultra-lightweight and rider specific frames.
SOME HIGHLIGHTS OF THE MTB RANGE:
- Frog have worked with a hand-picked OEM fork manufacturer to develop junior-specific suspension forks specifically for Frog Bikes. As such, these forks are Frog branded. The manufacturer has many years’ experience making forks for global bike brands
- The adjustable air-sprung forks are very responsive at the low pressure levels allowing for an appropriate amount of travel even for the lighter riders
- The bikes are true to the lightweight nature of the main range with the 3 bikes weighing between 11.3kg and 11.5kg / 24.9lbs and 25.4lbs
- Innovative, in-house designed, eco-friendly FrogFit Technology® rice husk composite pedals
“We have spent considerable time developing this range and have paid particular attention to child specific components, such as the brake levers and air suspension forks with lockout and damping control. The MTBs have also been ISO tested to adult MTB standards, so we can be confident of their quality and endurance.”
Dr Tom Korff
Head of Research and Development, Frog Bikes
“The Frog range is designed with the child in mind: Lighter frames, shorter cranks and finely tuned forks are just some of changes we have made to the geometry to ensure that cycling is a positive experience for younger riders. Our goal is simple – we want to make bikes children want to ride and stores want to sell.”
