Evans releases new Hoy models

Evans Cycles has updated its Hoy Bikes range with two new models. 

The Hoy range was developed in partnership with Sir Chris Hoy, and the new builds cater for children from four to 16 years. 

The Bonaly is Evans Cycles’ best-selling children’s bike. The updated range comes in 16in, 20in, 24in and 26in wheel sizes and now offers a completely redesigned lightweight frame and child-friendly components.

The Meadowmill is aimed at young riders who are looking to cycle on various terrains. It features dropdown handlebars and a lightweight aluminium frame.

A new Q factor crankset is designed to ensure riders’ legs are closer together, making pedalling efficient and smooth. The crankset limits any overstretch of legs, and also ensure pedals don’t clip the floor when cornering.

Additionally, size-specific handlebar widths have been implemented to match the riders’ shoulder width, designed to improve handling. 

Sir Chris Hoy said: “As a father of two, I understand as much as anyone the specific demands of modern kids’ bikes. Rather than simply creating a scaled down adults bike, each model has been finely tuned to provide a fit, which inspires confidence and ensures comfort based on years of testing and feedback.

“With new super lightweight frame-sets, internal cabling, low spoke wheels, micro adjustable seatposts and lightweight finishing kit, we’re confident that our new range are some of the lightest and most comprehensive kids’ bikes in the UK.”
