The Zero has everything; Style, features and function. Designed with sophisticated young riders in mind, every element of the Zero has been considered from colour trends to the high specification parts it is fitted with.
The bike has a lightweight aluminium frame and hydroformed tubes which add strength to the frame alongside a front V-brake modulator. The V-brake modulator regulates the force that goes down to the front aluminium V-brake resulting in smoother braking and aluminium/resin brake levers, which are easily operated by little fingers and fitted with an adjustment screw to alter the sizing. The Zero also has low rise handlebars which allow a more upright riding position giving little riders increased visibility and a height adjustable stem allowing for children's growth. The handlebar area is finished off with softer dual compound co-ordinated grips.
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, are fitted with rubber pads which prevent feet slipping off. Each pair of non-slip pedals are carefully colour matched to fit the bike design.
Raleigh focuses on every detail of design when it comes to their bikes, with a printed saddle and 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 the Zero.
