Customer Reviews

I’ve had the bike since October 2022. Tripper personally delivered it to me. I ride it weekly. Running great, very sturdy, plenty of power, and Long lasting batt. Still in like new shape. My wife and I go everywhere. We go out to Traders, shopping at our our outdoor mall, and lunch at a bar and grill. I use to feel cooped up in the house. I have health and mobility issues, I cant walk much, im 270 lbs. I needed the Tripper 500 lb max wieght, no one else has that rating. The Tripper takes me all over town. I take neighborhood watch type rides in my community. The best money I’ve spent.

Easy to assemble. Great looking bike. Lots of power. Pleasant ride for single or both wife and I. Would have loved for it to fold but can’t have everything. Extremely happy with it. Well worth the money. Highly recommend it.

Just took delivery of my Tripper Falcon II. I am so stoked and just floored with the build and quality. I’m 270 lbs, with mobility issues. I’ve been wanting and researching Ebikes for a year. I finally test drove a couple. I can’t plant my feet when sitting on a 26 or 24 inch frame. I visited a Ebike rental place and got on some bikes my mobility issues were evident on the 24 and 26 inch frames. Than I sat on the Tripper Falcon II. A 2 Seater rated at 500 lbs. A 750 watt motor which peaks at 1,000 watts. With a large 17.5 AH battery. Sat flat footed on the plush seat, for 10 minutes. I started communicating with Tripper on FB Messenger. They answered all my questions. Gave me a great deal. Free personal delivery to my house. All assembled with some extra goodies. I used Klarna, for financing. I was able to climb my hill throttle only. With pedal assist, ran up the hill like a champ. They cover it for a 2 year warrenty, local service available. I’m extremely happy and looking forward to rides with my wife. Mark Corona, Ca.

Best Beach Cruiser Electric Bikes 2023

Intro to Best Beach Cruiser Electric Bikes, 2023

Electric Bike Report aims to help consumers find the right electric bike for their needs. When you buy a product we recommend, we may earn a commission.

If there was a Dictionary Americana full of descriptions and definitions of U.S. cultural icons, there would be a picture of a beach cruiser next to the entry for “bicycle.”

Like Apple pie, baseball and the moon landings, the swept-back handlebars and retro, low-slung styling of the classic beach cruiser bicycle is synonymous with American culture. The style’s roots can be traced at least back to the mid-1950’s, but it really burst into mainstream popularity thanks to the California surf scene in the 1970’s. The popularity of beach cruisers has waxed and waned through the decades, but thanks to the rise of the electric bikes the low-slung and easy rolling bicycles are surging in popularity.

Loved for their looks and comfort, beach cruiser electric bikes are now one of the most popular categories of e-bike. Nearly every e-bike brand has their electrified take on the classic design, so it can be tough to figure out which electric cruiser is right for you. That’s why Electric Bike Report’s team of expert testers put together this list.

And if you’re looking for a little more bike style variety, you can always check out our page dedicated to the best electric bikes of any style.

How we picked these electric cruiser bikes

You can technically cruise on any e-bike, but only some fit squarely into the “cruiser” category. Those are the bikes this best beach cruiser e-bike list focuses on (barring a few exceptions). This list is not exhaustive, but it does include the best electric cruiser bikes reviewed by the EBR staff this year plus a few bikes we’ve included because our readers love them or because their reputation precedes them.

We evaluated the best beach cruiser e-bikes based on a few key criteria, mainly:

  • Comfort and style: An electric beach cruiser bike that isn’t comfortable just doesn’t make sense. Comfort is central to what a cruiser is, so the geometry needs to be upright, the seat cushy and the riding position laid-back. Beach cruiser electric bikes also have a very particular style, so does the bike fit that mold?
  • Ease of use: Cruiser bikes need to be approachable by anyone, which is why you’ll see many bikes on this list in a step-thru frame design. They also need to be easy to stop and start, so we look for bikes with a geometry that allows riders to touch their feet to the ground when seated.
  • Components and extras: Does the bike have baskets and bags? Racks and fenders? What about optional customizations you can order with the bike?
  • What does the manufacturer say it was built for?: E-bikes of all types can be used for just about anything, but we take into account what the manufacturers say their bikes were built for. We do sometimes deviate from their definition, but more often than not, they built the bike and know it best.

Electric Bike Company Model Y

A stylish and ultra-customizable classic beach cruiser

Designed and built in Newport Beach, Calif., there’s few e-bikes that capture the beach cruiser ethos like the Electric Bike Company Model Y.

The Model Y is a low-step frame design that’s easy to get on and off of and the bike comes stock with a powerful 500W rear hub motor, battery options that range from large to extra large and a very classic beach cruiser styling. Electric Bike Company boasts one of the most complete customization setups in the e-bike industry, allowing customers to pick frame and fork colors, battery size, drivetrain type fork type and even the color of the spokes laced into the wheels — it’s an impressive amount of options.

But despite their beach cruiser looks, this e-bike is extremely capable. The version of the Model Y we tested in early 2021 boasts extremely good battery life, climbs well and has enough power to easily cruise at Class 3 speeds. It also sports a torque sensor, making the motor extremely sensitive and responsive to rider input. If the low-step frame design isn’t your thing Electric Bike Company also makes the Model X, which is an extremely similar sibling of the Model Y with a high-step frame design and some other small differences.

The Electric Bike Company Model Y is a stellar beach cruiser electric bike that not only looks the part, but has the added benefit of a powerful motor and big batteries — more than enough to get you to the beach or the boardwalk and back with ease.

Pro’s

  • Classic cruiser styling with limitless customization options
  • Dual battery system allows for extended range
  • Bikes are assembled and painted in Newport Beach, CA (not shipped directly from China)
  • Class 2 or Class 3 compatible
  • Affordable starting price with many optional upgrades
  • 60Nm of torque
  • Front basket comes standard

Con’s

  • Wide turn radius – a tradeoff that comes with any beach cruiser e-bike
  • Battery is difficult to remove so best charged on the bike

Trek Townie Go! 8D EQ Step-thru

An affordable mid-drive beach cruiser electric bike

With beach cruiser styling and a sporty heart, Trek’s Townie Go! 8D Equipped step-thru model balances performance with beach cruiser comfort.

The Townie Go! 8D’s smooth lines, gently swept handlebars and relaxed geometry fits the bike squarely into the beach cruiser category. But tucked into the bottom bracket is a 250W Bosch Active Line motor, one of the best e-bike motors on the market today. That motor is powered by the Bosch PowerPack 400 battery, which gives thi e-bike 400Wh of available energy. This combination, plus the e-bike’s relatively affordable price point, makes it a formidable contender in the best electric cruiser bike category.

The drivetrain is a mix of the Shimano Acera and Tourney 8-speed groupsets and the braking is handled by a pair of Tektro mechanical disk brakes front and rear. It’s got a Bosch Purion display, integrated LED lights front and rear and weighs in just under 50 lbs.

At just a little over 2,000 retail, Trek’s Townie Go! 8D equipped (both the step-thru and high-step versions are great options for the person looking for high-performance pep combined with laid-back looks.

Pro’s

  • The Bosch Active Line motor and battery are top-of-the-line, making this a uniquely capable electric beach cruiser bike
  • Solid Shimano 8-speed drivetrain.
  • Color matched fenders, integrated lights and mounting points for racks and other accessories

Con’s

  • This e-bike is limited to Class 1 capabilities, which may leave some riders looking for a little more speed

Aventon Pace 350

An affordable and popular option that blurs the line between commuter and beach cruiser electric bike

With a little bit of cruiser comfort mixed with light-duty commuter styling and functionality, Aventon’s Pace 350 is one of the most popular e-bikes sold by the budding American e-bike company.

At the entry level price point of just over 1,200, the Pace 350’s 350W motor, 417.6Wh battery and Shimano 7-speed drivetrain make it an awesome value buy. It shares an extremely similar design to its bigger sibling, the Pace 500, but at a slightly cheaper price. This e-bike comes in a step-over and step-thru design, but we’re particular fans of the step-thru variation of the e-bike.

By blurring the line between electric cruiser and commuter bikes, Aventon has built an extremely comfortable and capable e-bike that’s just as good at commuting to the office as it is making a run to the beach on a Saturday afternoon. It’s an inviting and accessible e-bike that won’t break the bank.

Pro’s

  • At a claimed weight of 46 lbs, the Pace 350 is very lightweight for an e-bike
  • The 417.6Wh battery is a solid size for the bike’s 350W motor
  • The design is very appealing and looks very nice. Aventon did a good job of making the bike simple but good looking

Ride1UP Cafe Cruiser

One-of-a-kind moto-styling on an extremely relaxed cruiser.

Comfort, legitimate ‘plus one’ carrying capabilities, and a styling that makes you feel like you should put on your bomber jacket – the Ride1UP Cafe Cruiser is certainly a unique model amongst our list of the top cruiser e-bikes.

This isn’t your grandfather’s beach cruiser. Unless we’re counting your grandfather’s James Deen phase, in which case it very much is his beach cruiser. The Ride1UP Cafe Cruiser has a throw-back motorcycle look that stands out from what we typically think of in overall cruiser design, and it offers a similar free-spirited joyride feel where one could envision riding with the wind whipping through your hair.

Its 750W motor provides exhilarating speeds on flats, while doing decently well on hills. What we really liked was the decision to include a welded-on rear rack that could support an additional rider (with the proper added accessories) so you can take leisure rides with a friend.

On top of the aesthetics and utility it’s also a super comfortable ride. The included suspension fork, and the plushest Ride1UP saddle we’ve seen yet keep the rider feeling good at all times.

The total package makes a striking first impression, and it’ll leave a lingering imprint on you after your first ride too.

Pro’s

  • Battery range exceeded expectations.
  • We don’t like to lead off pros with looks, but this thing is a stunning choice for a cruiser e-bike
  • Not many cruisers include a rack capable of carrying 150 lbs.
  • Ride1UP balanced comfort and sportiness well with this one. It’s a pleasant ride that can feel speedy if you want
  • Overall, there’s lots of bang for your buck: Good components, good motor and good looks for more than a fair price.

Con’s

  • The throttle has a ton of speed on flats, but it isn’t the fastest up the hills without some rider help

Blix Sol Eclipse

A classic beach cruiser that’s soft on the eyes (and the wallet)

Hot from the drafting table, the Blix Sol Eclipse is a brand-spanking-new iteration of the Santa Cruz, California-based company’s electric beach cruiser that bore a similar name.

The new version of the Sol sports a larger 750W rear hub motor, wider tires and a new LED front headlight for nighttime rides. Aside from those changes, the Sol has retained its classic shape and comfortable ride qualities the previous version of the e-bike was well known for. The Sol is equipped with a Shimano 7-speed drivetrain and Tektro mechanical disk brakes front and rear.

The Sol is also compatible with Blix’s proprietary modular rack system that easily allows you to add or subtract carrying capacity on the front and rear of the bike (you can even set it up to accommodate a child seat). Capping off the Sol’s build is a pair of very swept back handlebars and a wide cushioned seat that supports your back.

The Sol is a solid option for anyone looking for an beach cruiser electric bike that’s well spec’d, thoughtfully built and affordable.

Pro’s

  • The Sol looks great and the low-step frame design makes it easy to get on and off
  • The modular rack system is really cool and super functional, making the bike more versatile than just a pure beach cruiser
  • The 614Wh battery is plenty big for most trips, with a little left over so you don’t need to worry about battery life

Con’s

  • One size fits all. We typically like to see different frame sizes so riders of different body shapes can get a good fit

SixThreeZero Around The Block 500W

A modern (and electrified) take on an American icon

With a frame design harkening back to the mid-century Schwinn cruiser bikes, the SixThreeZero Around the Block 500 appears to be an electrified clone of an iconic American bicycle.

This is SixThreeZero’s new version of the Around the Block 500 that features new colorways, a 500W rear hub motor, a 500Wh battery, disc brakes and pedal assistance up to 28 mph. Like many other beach cruiser electric bikes it’s a one-size-fits-all frame designed to fit riders from 5-foot to 6-foot tall.

The battery is mounted on a rear rack and the bike has a claimed range of 20 to 40 miles, depending on how hard you tax the motor. It also comes with a throttle that is limited to 20 mph, wide tires, a broad cruiser-style seat and swept-back handlebars.

If you’re on the hunt for an electric remake of an American classic, the SixThreeZero Around the Block 500 is worth a look.

Pro’s

  • The SixThreeZero Around the Block 500W looks fantastic. They did a great job capturing that classic mid-century styling
  • The spec level is well done for the price. The 500W motor and 7-speed Shimano drivetrain work well
  • SixThreeZero went with a very simple, no frills design. We really like this

Biktrix Stunner LT

A unique fat-tire electric beach cruiser with lots of options

As if adding a larger-than-average motor and fat tires wasn’t enough, Biktrix doesn’t just make their Stunner LT cruiser bike in different frame sizes — you can also order it in three different wheel sizes.

The Stunner LT comes in three frame sizes from small to large, not a terribly uncommon thing among e-bikes, but where this bike stands out is that each frame size comes with a different wheel size. The small bike comes with 20-inch wheels, the medium comes with 24-inch wheels and the large with 26-inch wheels. The bikes are also ultra-customizable, with customers getting to pick everything from battery size to seatpost type and brakes.

The bike comes with a 750W rear hub motor and a 48V, 17.5Ah (840Wh) battery that can be upgraded, a torque sensor and a Shimano Acera 8-speed drivetrain. The tires across all three wheel sizes are 4-inches wide and the bikes come with upgradeable hydraulic disc brakes.

To put it short, the Biktrix Stunner LT is a feature-rich electric cruiser bike that’s ultra-customizable and available in a number of unique configurations. That amount of options makes it worth for consideration on any best beach cruiser electric bike list.

Pro’s

  • A unique take on the cruiser from Biktrix that combines fat biking with beach cruising
  • The 750W motor is larger than average for the beach cruiser electric bike category
  • The wheel size options are a really neat touch. Not only does it make the bike more accessible to different sized people, it basically gives you three different bikes
  • The Stunner LT is ultra customizable

Con’s

  • The varying wheel sizes are cool but it does mean that each frame size will handle uniquely. Not necessarily a bad thing, but something that should be kept in mind when choosing your size

Magnum Lowrider Cruiser

A well-spec’d and nice looking beach cruiser electric bike

The low-step version of Magnum’s popular cruiser bike, the Lowrider Cruiser is a nicely designed beach cruiser e-bike built for urban cruising.

The Lowrider comes with a 500W rear hub motor powered by a 48V, 13Ah (624Wh) battery that’s partially integrated into the frame. It’s spec’d with Tektro hydraulic disc brakes, a Shimano Acera 8-speed drivetrain and an RST front suspension fork. It’s a Class 3 e-bike, meaning the motor will give pedal assistance up to 25 mph. It also has a throttle that’s limited to 20 mph.

Magnum gave the Lowrider very gently swept bars and a very wide, cushioned seat for comfort. It also comes with a rear rack and lights front and rear. Magnum bikes also boast a one year comprehensive warranty.

The Magnum Lowrider Cruiser is a great bike for anyone on the hunt for a good looking beach cruiser electric bike.

Pro’s

  • The hydraulic disk brakes, RST suspension fork and Shimano Acera 8-speed drivetrain
  • The Magnum’s unique copper accents and frame design make it stand out from other beach cruisers in its category
  • The 624Wh battery has good range when paired with the 500W motor

Con’s

  • The front headlight and rear taillight are “independent” meaning they operate on internal batteries rather than draw energy from the bike’s main battery

Specialized Turbo Como SL 5.0

A beach cruiser with a super advanced and super light motor

One of the sharpest looking beach cruiser electric bikes released this year, the new Specialized Turbo Como SL is built around a proprietary motor and battery that make it lightweight, stealthy and very nice to pedal.

The Turbo Como SL is the second non-performance e-bike in the Specialized lineup to get the company’s “Super Light System” motor and battery. Not only is this a lighter powerplant than you’d traditionally find on an e-bike, but it’s been carefully tuned to replicate a rider’s natural pedaling. While the motor on many e-bikes can outright overpower a rider, this one is designed to give a much gentler assist.

Aside from the SL system, the new Turbo Como SL is thoughtfully designed with an integrated front rack, lights and fenders front and rear. The overall design of the bike is downright cool, and the mid-step build makes it easier to get on and off the bike. It comes with a Shimano Nexus internally geared hub, a Gates Carbon belt drive and TRP hydraulic disk brakes. At 47 lbs, it’s also lighter than average for a cruiser-style e-bike. The premium parts and construction make it a worthy entrant on our best electric cruiser bike list.

If you’re looking for a cruiser with a gentler oomph or if you’re sold on e-bikes built by one of the global leaders in bicycling, the Specialized Turbo Como SL 5.0 is worth a look.

Pro’s

  • The Specialized Super Light System is one of the best designed e-bike drive systems on the market
  • The Nexus internally geared rear hub requires far less maintenance than a traditional bike drivetrain
  • 47 lbs is extremely lightweight for a cruiser bike
  • This is a cruiser that could easily double as a commuter or city bike. It’s built to be very versatile

Con’s

  • The SL drive system’s power delivery is much lighter than some of the other motors on this list. For experienced cyclists this works well, but it may not work best for those looking for more oomph

Evelo Galaxy 500

A compact but powerful cruiser perfect for smaller riders

Built around a 500W motor and 24-inch wheels, the Evelo Galaxy 500 is a compact cruiser electric bike that packs a considerable punch.

The Galaxy 500 is built with smaller riders in mind, with a maximum recommended height of 5-foot-10-inches and a minimum height of 4-foot-10-inches. But despite its small stature, the bike’s 500W mid-drive motor is powerful, especially when you consider that most mid-drives on the market today only clock about 250W of power. It also boasts the very cool Enviolo AutomatIQ shifting system, which changes gears automatically — you never have to worry about what gear you’re in.

The Galaxy 500 comes in a low-step frame design, and to ensure the frame was as low-slung as possible Evelo opted to mount the battery on a rack over the rear wheel instead of inside the front triangle of the frame. It also has a Gates Carbon belt drive, which is cleaner, a little quieter and requires less maintenance than a traditional chain.

We tested the Galaxy 500 in 2020 and were thoroughly impressed by its performance, and we think you would be too.

Pro’s

  • Enviolo Automatic transmission system takes the guess-work out of shifting. The bike will shift for you as you ride.
  • The low-step frame is easy to get on and off.
  • The small frame size makes this a cinch to ride around town. It is very navigable and easy to maneuver around corners or alleyways.
  • Upright frame and swept back handlebars allow riders to sit up rather than hunch over.
  • Easy to manage the power; this is a great bike for older or smaller riders

Con’s

  • The Evelo Galaxy 500 only comes in a small frame size, so it is best suited for riders under 5’10”. Evelo also offers the Aurora Limited which has the same transmission system with a larger frame and 750W motor for larger riders.

Bottom line: Gone are the days of slow beach cruisers

While loved for their looks, comfort and their embodiment of California beach culture, traditional beach cruisers have long had one thing working against them: They’re a little slow and inefficient.

Their upright body position and low-slung geometry is a double-edged sword; it’s forgiving and comfortable, but can make them tough to pedal for long distances or uphill. E-bike motors have helped solve this problem, giving them the extra boost needed to make them capable as well as comfortable.

But how do you choose the best electric cruiser bike for you? This is a very tough and very subjective question to answer. The bike salesman in me wants to point you toward your local bike shop and tell you to test ride as many as possible until you’ve got a good feel for what you want. But nowadays, with more brands going to a direct-to-consumer business model, test riding a bike in person is not always an option. That’s where the team of experts at Electric Bike Report comes in.

We spend days testing the bikes we review, putting them through a gauntlet designed to demonstrate their braking ability, hill climbing prowess and how far they’ll go on a single charge, among a few other things. Our goal is to demonstrate how the bikes perform in the real world so that if you have to make a buying decision without seeing the bike in person, you can at least have a good idea of what to expect when it finally shows up at your door.

If you’re on the hunt for the best beach cruiser electric bike, you’ve come to the right place.

For those planning on sticking mainly to the pavement, Decathlon’s Riverside 100 Hybrid bike pairs smooth-rolling tires with a mountain bike style frame to create the ideal city bike for young riders on a budget. The Riverside comes standard with 6-gears with a grip shifter as well as a kickstand.

The Riverside 100 is currently only available through Walmart. Also, the listing on Walmart states that the bike comes with battery-powered lights and a bell. We believe this is a typo as the bike we received did not.

For more great city options, Decathlon also sells their “Original” model directly on their site for 229. It is a bit heavier than the Riverside and has more of a traditional frame. A pink and navy version with fenders and a basket is also available for 249.

INCH BIKES FOR NEIGHBORHOOD RIDERS

What We Look for in a Neighborhood Bike

Whether riding down to a friend’s house or heading out on a long ride with the family, neighborhood bikes are designed for kids who mainly stick to paved surfaces. With smoother or narrower tires and slightly more upright body positioning than multi-use bikes, these neighborhood bikes are fun and natural to ride.

With a FOCUS more on simplicity for the average kid rider, these 24 inch bikes feature easy to use grip shifters, less gearing options, and v-brakes. They also boast exceptional quality that will allow you to pass these bikes down to several kids, or resell them for a good price.

Innovative braking system, easy-to-use grip shifters

  • SEAT HEIGHT: 25″ – 33″
  • WEIGHT: 25.5 lb.

With just one brake lever that sequentially engages the rear brake followed by the front brake, timid kids feel more secure, and aggressive kids have the added stopping power they need.

The woom 5’s combination of a super lightweight frame, a more upright body position, and a wide gearing range make this bike the most natural and easy ride of any 24 inch bike we’ve tested. Its uniquely designed handlebar allows for height adjustments to make the woom 5 a better fit for a longer period of time.

Its slightly knobbier tires also make the woom ideal for riding on various surfaces.

The woom 5 is a solid, does-it-all bike for your budding bike enthusiast.

An exceptional bike all-around, the Specialized Jett is a quality bike with top-notch components that is not only build to last, but is also built to fit much longer than other 24″ bikes!

After years of study and research, the Jett was uniquely designed to provide about 3″ of additional room for growth as compared to other bikes. After testing the 24″ Jett out on 8 different kids, we found it to properly fit on heights ranging from 51″ to 62″ (many 24″ bikes max out around 59″).

In addition to being a great fit, the Jett is a blast to ride. All of our testers loved the fun, smooth, and nimble ride of the Jett and preferred it over many other bikes in our test fleet. Both our timid and aggressive riders loved the Jett’s 2.0″ wide tires that help to cushion the ride, as well as the quick and responsive trigger shifters.

Lastly, while the Jett is available online, you can also order it through your local bike shop and then pick it up already assembled!

INCH BIKES FOR ADVENTUROUS RIDERS

What We Look for in a Multi-Use Bike for Aggressive Riders on Paved and Dirt Trails

For adventurous kids who need a bike suitable for occasionally (or frequently!) hitting dirt trails, these multi-use bikes are the perfect choice.

These kids bikes feature either wider and knobby tires for better traction on various surfaces, or a more aggressive positioning on the bike. This positioning on the bike allows kids to more easily shift their weight around while speeding up a jump or going through a tight turn – whether on pavement or dirt.

These 24 inch bikes also feature one or more of the following features: Rapid fire trigger shifters for faster gear changes, disc brakes for top-notch stopping power, or a basic coil suspension fork to make neighborhood tricks like bunny hops a bit easier.

Specced with trigger shifters as well as 9 gears with a wide gain ratio range, the Prevelo is easy to shift on the fly and even easier to power up hills or lay down the speed on long straightaways. When it comes time to slow down, the Alpha’s Tektro v-brakes offer quick and responsive stopping power.

With 2.25″ wide tires and an optional front suspension fork, the Precaliber is the perfect ride for the adventurous neighborhood rider who is eager to tackle both paved and dirt trails.

With top-notch Tektro hydraulic disc brakes that are usually reserved for true mountain bikes, the Meerkat offers plenty of stopping power for added confidence and safety. To smooth the ride, the Meerkat is the only bike on this list to feature a steel frame that helps to absorb vibrations and chatter from the trail. The heavier frame, however, makes it less suitable for really timid riders.

  • Provides a smooth ride that our testers loved
  • Internally geared hub – no finicky derailleur
  • Steel vibration-absorbing frame
  • Responsive Tektro hydraulic disc brakes
  • Highly adaptable frame – can convert to a regular derailleur and is suspension corrected to maintain geometry if suspension fork is added

How to Choose the Best 24 inch Bike for your 8 to 10-Year-Old

Here’s a quick summary of what to look for when selecting the best bike for your 8 to 10-year-old. For more detailed information on the topics below, check out our buying guide at the bottom of the article about the best kids bike brands on the market.

Sizing for 24 Inch Bikes

24 inch kids’ bikes are generally the best fit for 8, 9, and 10-year-olds or any child between 49″ and 59″ tall. If your child is already 11 or is a very tall 10-year-old, also consider 26″ bikes as they would offer more room for growth (although very few kids’ bikes come in 26″ tires). If a child starts on a 24 inch bike when they are 8 to 10, they can likely continue to ride it while they are 11 or even 12 years old.

Kids on 24 inch bikes are generally confident enough riders to set their seat about 2 – 3″ above the child’s inseam. At this height, a child can touch the ground with their tiptoes, which produces the best knee bend angle for pedaling with maximum efficiency.

As with all kids’ bikes, within a given wheel size category, the minimum and maximum seat heights of 24 inch bikes can vary. The average minimum seat height of a 24 inch bike is around 25″ while the maximum average is about 31″.

The height adjustability of 24 inch bike range from 5″ – 8″, which allows kids to ride 24 inch bikes much longer than other sizes. For example, the average 8-year-old should have plenty of room to grow with the bike until he turns 10 or even 11.

To ensure as much longevity as possible, be sure to compare your child’s inseam to the bike’s minimum seat height before your purchase. The Pello Reyes on the left has a minimum seat height of a little over 25″ while the woom 5 on the right has a 26.4″ minimum seat height. Make sure that you choose a bike that not only fits well now, but allows for plenty of room for growth.

Weight – light is better, but more expensive

Ideally, your child’s bike will be less than 40% of their body weight. This ratio is more important when a child is younger and just learning to ride, but is still applicable for your 8 and 9-year-olds! In most cases, the lighter the bike, the easier the bike is to ride. The more aggressive and longer your child rides, the more important weight becomes as well. If trail riding or any type of riding with varied elevation is in your child’s future, aim for a bike that is less than 30% of their weight.

In regards to weight, be cautious about purchasing a 24 inch bike with a shock as they can add a lot of unnecessary weight to a bike. In most cases, the weight a shock adds to the bike quickly negates the benefits of having a shock.

Best Frame Design – depends on riding style

The frames of all kids 24 inch bikes are designed for a specific type of riding. Whether they are designed for the average neighborhood rider (most are), for long distances (road bike), or for single-track trail riding, be sure to know HOW you plan on using the bike before you purchase one. Don’t expect your child’s neighborhood bike to perform well on single-track bike trails, or a mountain bike with front suspension to be a good fit for a 30-mile ride on paved surfaces.

Our “Best Of” list is mainly comprised of bikes we would classify as neighborhood bikes or light trail use, for which the vast majority of kids use a bike. The geometry of these bikes, however, also vary greatly. Some place kids in a more upright position, which is better suited for more timid riders, while others place riders in a more aggressive, leaned forward position, which is better for more adventurous riders.

Brake Types are more varied on 24 inch bikes

Dual-hand brakes are the standard braking system on most 24 inch bikes. A few will have coaster brakes, but for the most part, differences will be between what type of hand brake a bike has. Braking systems include V-pull brakes, disc brakes (mechanical and hydraulic), and Guardian Bikes’ unique SureStop braking system.

V-Pull Brakes

Standard V-pull brakes work just fine for the mass majority of 8 to 11-year-olds, but the quality and performance of V-brakes varies from bike to bike. High-quality, high-performing brakes are easy for kids to activate and don’t require them to exert a lot of pressure on the lever.

The brakes on higher-end bikes such as woom, Priority, Pello and Cleary are far superior to any handbrake found on a bike at a big box store. These brands also feature short-reach levers that place the brake lever closer to their hand, only requiring kids to barely extend their fingers to activate the brake.

Guardian’s SureStop Brakes

Guardian’s unique patented braking system allows kids to activate both the rear and front brake with ONE brake lever. Upon activating the single brake lever, the rear brake is activated, which is turn activates the front wheel’s brake. As a result, it’s impossible for kids to “endo”, or be bucked off the bike by braking with only the front brake because the SureStop system prevents the front brake from being activated until after the rear brake has.

Gears – Common and more necessary on 24 inch bikes

Gears are not only fun to use, they’re essential to tackle long flat roads, hilly neighborhoods, dirt trails, and single track. By the time a child is 8 or 9-years-old, they’re probably tackling these terrains that make it beneficial to shift gears. They’re also at an age when they should be able to manage the complexity of shifting without too much trouble. And as they grow with the bike at 10 and 11-years-old, those gears will eventually become second nature.

24 inch bikes are typically available with 7 or 8 gears that are shifted with one shifter. Unlike most adult bikes that have two shifters, one for each derailleur, kids’ bikes typically have fewer gears and just one derailleur. Having to only worry about one shifter is much easier for kids as they can simply shift up or down without having to worry about which hand and which shifter to use.

Most 24 inch bikes are available with grip shifters, which kids activate by twisting the grip with the palm of their hand, or trigger shifters, which are activated by pulling or pushing on levers with their fingers. In general, grip shifters are preferred by more timid or beginning riders as they are often easier and more intuitive to use. Aggressive riders typically prefer trigger shifters.

Trigger vs Grip Shifter

Price

Parents sometimes get a little sticker shock when they start shopping for a 24 inch bike. A larger bike is just going to cost more in general, and as kids get older, components often get more advanced to keep up with a child’s more advanced riding.

Every bike on this list is pretty incredible and significantly better than a bike you’ll find at Walmart. But of course, they cost more! If your child truly loves riding, try to stick to the bikes on this list. If they are beyond your budget, try to find one used! But in the end, any bike is better than no bike at all, so do whatever it takes to keep your kid riding!

BUILT RAMBO TOUGH

The Rambo Ryder 750W 24 Matte Black and Tan bike features 24” x 4” wheels, 48v 14AH battery, and a slightly smaller frame to accommodate smaller riders. It features a 8-speed Shimano Derailleur to get you through the toughest terrain, great for grassland areas and a high torque 750W mid-drive motor. It also comes with Kenda Kevlar anti-puncture tires to prevent flats and dual piston hydraulic disc brakes for increased stopping power

OUR BATTERY

Rambo’s frame integrated batteries allow the battery sit lower on the bike frame than a standard battery. By placing the 48v 14AH battery lower on the frame it helps keep the weight lower and gives the bike a faster, more responsive ride. The 14-amp hour battery can give you a max distance of 35 miles! Not all batteries are equal. In fact, not even close. Many e-bikes that are advertised on the market today at a certain amp hour fall very short. Real life tests show Rambo outperforms again and again! Don’t be fooled for less the than best!

RAMBO 750W MID-DRIVE MOTOR

You will love bringing the Rambo 750 24 anywhere with its Bafang BBSH02 High Torque Mid Drive 750-watt DC motor. You now have plenty of power to tackle various uphill trails, wet, muddy or loose surfaces. Have the confidence to ride rocky trails and up-and-down trails without much difficulty.

The big motor also allows you to carry plenty of gear, which is useful when hunting, camping or fishing. The bike frame features a conventional design where you can hitch a trailer to carry heavy loads.
