The MX24 series features in our 24" wheel selection of kids mountain bikes, so it seems only fitting that its pint-sized sibling should be featured too. This Team version comes with a better specification than the Dirt shown above.
The MX20 Team comes in two versions, with a choice of v-brake or disc brakes.
As you can see from the picture (the Orbea MX 20 Team is shown) the bike just oozes purposefulness, with its paintwork and 2.1 inch tyres back and front it looks desperate to be let off the leash.
The specification for the MX20 Team Disc is good, with a smattering of own-brand components in the usual areas (bars, stem, seatpost) matched to named components such as the Shimano MT400 hydraulic discs, that have a strong reputation for good performance at a palatable price.
The drivetrain comprises a 9-speed setup with Shimano Altus Shadow rear mech and shifters and matches a 34T single chainring up to an 11-36T cassette to give a good spread of ratios.
Shimano updated their groupsets earlier in the year, and in doing so the technology from the higher in the pecking order XTR an XT trickles down to the groupsets below, making them really great value.
This is a good move by Shimano and gives the MX20 bang up to date kit, which is great to see on a 20" wheeled bike.
