Subrosa's Altus 16-inch is the perfect whip for the younger rider looking to progress. It starts with a frame and fork made from rock-solid steel that's strong enough to take casing a few jumps, yet light enough to hone new tricks. Double-wall, 36-spoke Rant wheels can handle the park and trails, and the 25/9 gearing gets you up to speed quickly. Rant pedals, stem, and tubular 3-piece cranks mean the bike is ready to rip right out of the shop.
