TOP FIVE THINGS YOU NEED TO KNOW Laser's mini MX-Moto design offers plenty of stand-over clearance for young riders and a head-turning, two-tone paint finish that will be the talk of the neighborhood. The over-sized blades and leading axle dropout of the Laser fork assures it will be up to the task of getting there and back safely. If a steel or alloy part is not painted or anodized, we protect it with a black electro-plating which enhances the corrosion resistance of that part. The satin sheen of the finish looks good too. The Laser's full-length & full ring-wrap chainguard keep clothes & legs cleanly and safely out of the way of the chain. Every 16” Laser offers stabilizing training wheels that assist the young rider in learning how to pedal, steer and balance a bike for the first time. The training wheel support struts attach securely both to the rear hub axle and the frame itself so that the training wheels don’t rotate out of plane with the rear wheel, preventing tips or spills.
The lightweight and durable aluminum Jamis Laser frame is easier to pedal than steel, giving young riders the confidence to keep up with mom or dad. The 20-inch Laser actually offers two types of brakes: a standard rear coaster brake, which most youngsters are familiar with, and a rear V-brake which many are not. Having the rear coaster brake as a back-up allows youngsters to get used to hand-braking without going cold-turkey on the coaster brake they are comfortable with. The alloy rims are anodized black to provide even greater corrosion and rust resistance than the alloy already possesses, and the rim sidewalls are ground to provide a smooth braking surface for the rear V-brake. Jamis builds the Laser 2.0 wheels with 36 spokes in a 3-cross lacing pattern for strength and durability, and mounts knobby BMX tires that bite in the dirt but with a rounded profile that rolls smoothly on neighborhood streets and driveways. Every Laser 2.0 offers a kickstand for parking that pride and joy and a bell to announce that the Laser has arrived.

Jamis' lightweight and durable aluminum X.24 frame is easier to pedal than steel and it's spec'd with a replaceable rear derailleur hanger for increased frame longevity. Disc brakes provide super-responsive stopping power so kids feel secure. That suspension fork isn't just for cool looks. It's 45mm of bump-eating travel means greater control and safety for young riders. Compared to bigger 26” wheeled bikes, the smaller diameter 24” wheels and shorter 12” frame of the X.24 provides more standover clearance and a lower center of gravity for enhanced control and safety, so young aspiring mountain bikers can learn to ride both on and off road comfortably, securely and safely. The double chainring crankset offers increased gear range (14-speeds) with an alloy outer rock guard to protect the chainrings from contact with curbs or logs. It helps keep pants and legs clean too! Bolt-on hubs and seat post clamps ensure that wheels and seats remain securely and safely attached to the frame and fork.
Every Jamis youth bike uses size-specific items like grips, saddles and cranks that enhance comfort and control by providing the best possible bike fit. We focus on designing frames with low stand-overs to take much of the awkwardness out of getting on board and dismounting after. We trim as much weight as we can with lightweight aluminum frames on many of the youth models and use aluminum parts where possible (the limiting factor here is working within a youth-bike-appropriate price point) to work towards that make-it-as-light-as-possible goal. - Enduro design, 6061 aluminum frame - XC50 24"suspension fork - Alloy 36H black anodized disc wheel set - 7-speed Shimano Tourney components - Tektro M280 mechanical disc brakes
