Previously called the Areva 250, the Giant Areva girls mountain bike is a really well-designed, good looking kid's bike. As the Areva is quite light (made of aluminium), it makes it easy for your girl to push along. With a simple to operate Shimano gear system and a very effective brake system she will soon become quite confident riding. The brakes are designed with small fingers in mind, so they require only light pressure to stop the bike. The seat is well padded and comfortable as are the soft hand grips, so it not only fits well, but is comfortable to use.
It generally suits kids aged 8-13.
The white and pink paint finish not only looks great, but is extremely chip and scratch resistant. The frame has lots of clearance so that it can be mounted by a smaller rider, yet can be adjusted easily to cater for growth. As with all our bicycles it comes full assembled and with 12 months free service.
The Areva is ideal for smaller girls from 7 years of age. If your daughter is on the tall side for her age, or 8-9 years old the GT Laguna may be a better choice.
For a less confident girl the Mongoose LM 2.4 is a nice choice as it has only 3 gears with a back pedal brake, and it is the lightest 24" girls bike we have, so it is easy to pedal.
