A range of components designed by Reverse Components, specifically to suit little shredders.
Reverse Youngstar Pedals
With this pedal, we've worked to improve shredding for young riders, with better ergonomics to suit smaller feet. With kids bikes being lighter and more capable than ever, it's time to get the components to fit the smaller proportions that kids have.
In our opinion this topic gets too little attention by the bicycle industry. Be it with the Q-factor of the children's bicycles or the oversized pedal surface of the pedals for children's feet!
Both the Q-factor and the support surface of the shoe on the pedal body, were taken into consideration during the development of the Youngstar pedal. The extra-short pedal axle allows a significantly lower Q-factor, which stops the legs being forced into the bow legged "X-position".
This makes it much easier for the kids and leads to a more circular rotations. Due to the smaller pedal surface for kids feet, the pedal flipping is reduced. Imagine you have to stand on a pedal the size of an A4 sheet! You will definitely tip backwards or forwards, since you could never really stand on the middle of such a pedal! The Youngstar is much smaller, making it much easier to find the point of balance.
With its weight of just 229 g, this aluminium pedal pair with CrMo axle is tough, durable but will be lighter than most pedals out there.
Fits for children up to shoe size 34 (US size 3).
Unless otherwise specified by the crank manufacturer.
Make sure that the pedals are tightened to min. 37 to max. 42 Nm.
Reverse Youngstar Grips
The first contact point of any bike is the grips. With children having smaller hands than adults, this contact point is even more important to get right to allow good control of the bike. The common problem is that children s bikes are equipped with grips that have too large a diameter. This is why we developed the Youngstar grip, to make the perfect match for young riders.
With a diameter of 28 mm and a total length of 98 mm this handle offers the same comfort as our adult handles, at a size that sits comfortably in their hand. The Youngstar grip is available with different clamp ring colors to suit any colour scheme.
Safety for young riders is our top priority. To prevent falls due to slipping off the grips, for the Youngstar grips we opted for a very soft rubber compound, which provides a much higher grip level and great damping properties. With the Youngstar grips, the young riders have excellent grip in all situations and less hand soreness, giving them more confidence on the bike and a willingness to ride further! Due to the softness of the rubber compound, like a good tire, there is faster wear than in comparable grips with a harder rubber compound, but which offer significantly less grip and damping. In addition, there is the possibility, after wearing out the top side of the grip, the grip can be rotated 180 degrees, so that the grips can be used for a while longer.- Grip pattern: Reverse diamond knobs
