The Academy Origin is a 16" Kids BMX which is one of the most affordable bikes going around. Designed with a 16" top tube and 16" wheels, the Origin suits kids between the ages of 4 and 8 with its simple and easy to control design sure to be a hit. Like most entry level bikes it is made with tough Hi-Ten steel frame, forks and bars, but still brings the quality with a fully sealed cassette hub with 25/9 gearing. It rolls on single wall rims with an alloy U brake for control so that kids can learn to ride with confidence. The Academy Origin is a BMX that does the basics well and doesn't load up on unnecessary spec for entry level riders, ensuring that you get excellent value from this bike.
