Huffy 26845 Why choose between the street and the trail? Enjoy the best of both worlds as you conquer any path - tame or treacherous - on the araxa 29 men's mountain bike from huffy. Built for adventures on- or off-road, this smooth riding 29er mountain bike is ready to take you from week to weekend and back again in comfortable and confident style. The araxa's steel 29er mountain frame is precision crafted for durability and comfort for a wide range of adults; the larger wheels of a 29 bike offer several sizable advantages over its smaller-wheeled relatives, giving riders a feeling of enhanced stability and control, whether riding on roads or up mountains. Larger wheels provide increased rolling momentum, meaning the bike will move faster and go further with less effort from the rider. Due to their size, 29 wheels roll over obstacles from a higher angle than regular 26 wheels, reducing the impact of rocks and bumps on the wheels (not to mention the rider) to increase the overall stability and comfort of the ride. Similarly, the larger size of 29 wheels gives 29ers better traction and control when climbing or cornering, as there is a larger tire contact area to grip the ground with. The 29 araxa was designed with all of these benefits in mind - but huffy wasn't ready to stop there, designing superior features with precision specifications for an optimum riding experience. The huffy-exclusive design includes a kolo suspension fork, steel linear pull brakes, a-head stem with oversize handlebar, and a 3-piece kolo alloy crank for stronger, more reliable, and smoother rides. The kolo oversize handlebars and front load a-head stem combine for additional durability and increased control, while the suspension fork helps the front wheel soak up bumps and drops; with a flexible fork, the bike absorbs the roughness of the road so your hands and arms don't have to. The scram 21-speed twist shifters work together with a shimano rear tz-31 7-speed derailleur for seamlessly smooth transitions between gears as you adjust to varying conditions. The shifting system's optical design is easy to read and simple to use (twist around the handlebar to change gears), allowing you to concentrate on the road ahead as you enjoy your trip; with the araxa, you're always ready to roll from road to trail - if that's where the day takes you. Similarly, easy-reach brake levers are conveniently located on both sides of the handlebars, providing you with full and immediate control of both the front and back brakes. The front and rear steel linear pull brakes combine to provide extremely powerful and balanced stopping power, especially when combined with the black anodized alloy rims, which improve braking even further and perform well under any condition; aluminum has a higher coefficient of friction than metals like steel and chrome, so an aluminum braking system ensures reliability when it matters the most. The alloy rims are also weather- and corrosion- resistant, making for long-lasting and lightweight wheels that support the knobby tires. The araxa's performance- optimizing components make this 29er bike durable enough for mountain trails yet strong and fast enough for street rides; in true huffy style, every inch of this bike was designed with you in mind. Added comfort features include soft huffy branded kraton grips to keep hands happy on longer rides and a premium padded seat that's mounted to an alloy quick release seat post, so you can easily adjust its height without the need for tools. This bike is designed to go anywhere you want to take it: just hop on your bike and go, whether you're headed down a mountain trail - or simply down to the corner store. Recommended for riders over 12 years old. Weight capacity of 250 lbs.
