Bottom line: We’re big fans of Prevelo’s Alpha Three, and highly recommend it for riders ready to step up to a 20″ bike!

Especially as young kids are learning to ride and gaining confidence in their cycling abilities, coaster brakes actually inhibit progress.
Despite how many times you teach and remind most kids to handle their bike with care, they are still kids & tend to be hard on their belongings! Just as the Alpha Three is designed just for kids and their unique physical structure, a lot of consideration has been taken to create a bike that is “forgiving” to young riders.
