Loaded with Features Obsessively Thought Out for Kids

9 Speed Microshift Drivetrain with Wide Span Gearing

9-speed Microshift drive train and 11-36T wide range gearing is the real deal and gives growing riders truly usable and class leading, 327% gear range. Kids are going to be efficient on the flats and have the leverage of low gears available to help make it up tough hills.

Compared other kids bikes that typically offer 7 or 8 speeds the Alpha Four offers 72% (or more) additional gear range.

Kid Optimized Crank with Dual-Alloy Guards

Prevelo crank lengths are custom sized for each size bike to make sure little riders have optimum pedal ergonomics. And they have ultra-narrow Q-factors to match the narrow hips of young cyclists. If that sounds like technical mumbo jumbo, here's the point - Prevelo cranks will help make small riders more comfortable and efficient on their bike.

The Alpha Four features industry leading Dual-Alloy Chainring Guardsthat both protected little fingers from getting caught in the mechanics and protect the chainring from impacts.

Kid Optimized Cockpit

This is where little riders command their steed. It's decked out with ultra thin grips and short reach brake levers that are optimized for small hands. The Microshift shifter is operated with two easy to operate thumb levers.

Confidence Inspiring Geometry

The Alpha Four features Prevelo's signature confidence inspiring geometry. Prevelo geometry utilizes a low bottom bracket that lowers the center of gravity of the bike and rider, making for a more agile and confident ride.

What the Bike Media is Saying

"The alpha series from Prevelo are neighborhood bikes that punch above their intended use. The geometry lends itself to ripping up trails as much as it does flying around the cul-de-sac. Everything is spot on from the tires, to the brakes to the handlebars. You will not be disappointed in such a refined kids bike that can do it all very well."

" The perfect mix of road warrior and basic all-terrain cruiser, the Alpha Four is built with kid-specific geometry for a precise, comfortable fit.....The Prevelo Alpha series is an exceptional line of bikes for eager young riders. Lightweight with a low-center-of-gravity, the Alphas are fun and easy to ride."

  • The 24" Alpha Four features a NEW 9-speed Microshift drive train. The 11-36T wide range gearing is the real deal and gives growing riders truly usable gear range. It features:
    1. Prevelo confidence inspiring low and narrow geometry. Prevelo geometry keeps the rider low, balanced and in control.
    2. Lightweight 6061 aluminum frame with custom formed tubing.
    3. Lightweight aluminum alloy fork with chromoly steerer.
    4. Front and rear v-brakes.
    5. Lightweight Allen head front and rear wheel skewers for secure wheel installation.
    6. Three piece crank with squared taper bottom cartridge bearing bottom bracket and ultra narrow Q factor.
    7. Custom made cranks. All Prevelo cranks are sized specifically for each model bike, down to the millimeter.
    8. NEW Microshift 9-speed drivetrain. Uses a shorter pulley cage without comprising gear ratio width. Because kids’ bikes have small wheel diameters, rear derailleurs on kids bikes hang low and close to the ground. The Prevelo Alpha bikes use smaller cage derailleurs to keep things high and away from the ground.
    9. Microshift Trigger Shifters. Small hands have a hard time using twist shifters. We use reliable silky smooth thumb shifters. They are easy for small hands to operate, and operate just like shifters on high performance bikes.
    10. Replaceable derailleur hanger. If the derailleur takes a hard hit, the hanger can be replaced without repair to the frame.
    11. 11-36T wide span gearing gives riders plenty of range to spin up tough hills.
    12. 95% assembled. Just install the handlebar, seatpost, front wheel and pedals.

    Love this bike!

    Got the same bike for my 7 year old as I have for my 10 year old (Alpha Four) because we love it so much. My daughter said "this bike is really good. I like this bike better than my old bike because the seat is really comfortable if you're riding a long distance. I think the size is really good and I really like the blue color because it's really shiny" (it IS an awesome blue)! Lightweight, gears are great for her and she figured them out right away and rode up a big hill... All in all an awesome purchase!

    The Absolute Best!

    Purchased for my 7 year old's birthday. Fit is perfect for her, relatively tall and fairly advanced rider for her age. We've been riding regularly over the last few months and have built up to a couple 10+ mile rides. Components are excellent and she is riding confidently over rolling hills and on occasional gravel. I highly recommend this bike!

    Top Notch

    Bought this as a birthday present for my 8 year old daughter. She is thrilled with her first geared bike, and couldn't be happier. The bike build and components are very high quality and dealing with customer service was a pleasure.

    At 7.5 yrs old our son decided he was open to learning how to ride a bike. After a lot of research, we wanted to buy a bike that was designed for kids, light weight, and could last for the next few yrs of growth. Couldn't be happier with the purchase, delivery, and design of his bike. Followed the "pedals off first" approach to learning and in one week he's confident and riding along side kids that learned at much younger ages. Thanks so much! Great product. Wish we had done the personalized name inscription.

    Such great bikes for kids

    I made the decision to get the alpha 3 a few years ago and never regretted it. One son is now older, the younger one inherited the alpha 3, and I had no questions about getting the alpha 4. The build quality is great, with details such as the kid-centric geometry and internal cable routing. The blue color looks fabulous. I made very few adjustments as I assembled the bike. The alpha 3 required some tweaking, but this one was great. My son was very happy on his 8th birthday. Now both boys can chase their mama while she runs. We have recommended prevelo bikes to many of our friends. Thanks for another great bike.
