First Look | The Felt Cruncher kid-size fat bike

Kids are great! Kids are the future! But how are we supposed to get kids as excited about riding as we are? The answer is obvious: by giving them awesome bikes to ride! California-based bike manufacturer Felt have obviously known this for some time, and now they’ve launched the Cruncher, a lovely fat-bike just for kids. We had the opportunity to take a first look:

Das Felt Cruncher verfügt definitiv über eine auffällige Optik.
One thing is for sure: the Cruncher is flashy!
20” Durchmesser, 4,0” Breite - Damit ist ordentlich Traktion für den Nachwuchs garantiert!
20″ diametre, 4.0″ tyre width – you don’t need to worry about traction with this little monster!
Dicke Reifen, dicke Scheiben – am Cruncher werden Scheibenbremsen verbaut.
Wide, thick tyres need great brakes. The Cruncher comes with disc brakes.

Fat tyres and disc brakes – the Cruncher can handle a lot!
As the fat tyres, mounted on 80mm rims, already provide more than sufficient comfort, the Cruncher comes with rigid forks. Mechanical Tektro M280 disc brakes take care of braking.

Dank der farbenfrohen Lackierung wird man mit diesem Rad nicht übersehen.
The Felt Cruncher has a colourful finish.
Gripshift sorgt für ein instinktives Schalterlebnis. Kinder mit kurzen Fingern haben im Gegensatz zu Triggern mit Gripshift kein Problem.
Gripshift makes sure that gear changing is intuitive – even with tiny hands.
Am Heck kommt eine Kassette mit extra großem 34t- Kletterritzel zum Einsatz.
With the 34-tooth sprocket, steep climbs are no problem.

The drivetrain consists of a Shimano Altus 7-speed derailleur and short cranks (152mm) with a 36-tooth chainring.

Die mechanischem Scheibenbremsen kommen aus dem Hause Tektro.

Die 24”-Version des Cruncher kommt mit einer eigenen Farbgestaltung daher.
The 24″-version of the Felt Cruncher has different colours.

The Felt Cruncher will cost 449 € (20″) and 499 € (24″) – which isn’t much to pay to become the king or queen of every playground!
