Visitors of the Eurobike may have already caught a glimpse of the new 20“ kids hardtail Dreckspatz. Besides the Frechdax full suspension bike, it completes Propain’s range of high-end kid’s bikes with a more affordable hardtail.
For all those kids who spend their riding time in a bike park or already try themselves out in rather technical terrain, the full suspension model Frechdax is probably the best option. For all others, who just need a light, strong and reliable kids bike to ride the trails next door or hit the local pump track, the new Dreckspatz is the perfect choice. Being super light and very pedal efficient the Dreckspatz hardtail is easy to handle and a real skill booster for the kids.
A light weight is essential for a great kids bike as a difference of just a few hundred grams can be felt by the young feather light shredders. Therefore Propain optimized the tubing of the new Dreckspatz to lower the frame weight to only 1.300g.
Equally important as the frame is the choice of the right components. As the offerings for lightweight kids components are still rather limited, Propain simply started their own kids component series to match the quality of their frames. Under the brand name “1st Ride“, Propain offers a lightweight carbon suspension fork, cranksets, handlebars, stems and wheelsets.
The weight of the high-end Dreckspatz Race is around 8.8kg. Prices for a complete bike start at 899€. Propain now offers the Dreckspatz in their online store in two different builds and two different color options, green and blue.
