The 2023 Specialized Jett 16 Kids Bike is part of a new kids bike platform that’s designed to be the most adjustable and comfortable kids bike on the market. A new bike is a critical investment for families. Especially now, when parents are looking for safe, fun ways for their kids to get out and get active. The Jett is designed to deal with growth spurts and growth patterns so kids are more comfortable on their bike and want to ride more.
To design the Jett Specialized consulted the cycling industry’s best bike fitters, and used the same study tactics that they use with world-class athletes. During “Bring Your Kids to Work Day” at the Retül Office in Boulder, Colorado, the team put kids on bikes and observed the mechanics of how they were riding, optimizing that data in the design of the Jett.
The Jett is designed to have the adjustability to last for three summers. Specialized’s research found that kids grow faster in their arms and legs than their torso, so they have built a bike that can accommodate average growth for up to 3 summers. Adjustability comes from 2-hole positions for cranks, a longer seatpost, and adjustable handlebars for extended reach.
The Jett 16” comes with a sleek design, lightweight frame, and fast-rolling Pathfinder Tyres will have kids leading the pack or keeping up with the grown-ups. A kids-specific 130mm Bridge Saddle and narrow q-factor cranks create hip-knee-ankle alignment for the rider. This helps to avoid knee pain and improve pedalling power—so riders can pedal further, faster. To keep things simple for younger riders the Jett 16 just comes with one gear.
This bike is perfect for
Kids (and parents) who want a seriously light and fast bike that will last for 3 summers. The Jett is comfortable for longer rides and the Pathfinder tyres can handle a variety of surfaces.
Specialized is one of the best-known quality bike brands in the world. Started by a group of riders in 1974. A fact which has guided their decision making ever since.
" Made for riders, by riders."
They strove to make the best quality tires when quality tyres weren't around. When people wanted to ride cruisers in the dirt, they made the first production mountain bike. When roadies wanted to go faster, Specialized doubled down on carbon and built their own wind tunnel.
Bikes like the Allez, Rockhopper and Stumpjumper have developed followings and reputations of their own. Specialized has a reputation for making high-end, high-quality bikes. Specialized bikes always look great with high-quality paint and sensible sizing hel0s you get the right bike each time. If you buy a Specialized bike you can be guaranteed it will do what it is supposed to and will last.
