Key Features

  • Trail-ready MTB geometry and build quality

Shotgun's Dirt Hero balance bike is designed for MTB kids who want to hit the trails. Rolling on 12" wheels with 14” wheel convertibility, 2.25” Vee Tire Crown Gem off-road tyres, mtb geometry. The Dirt Hero inspires confidence and progression in mini mountain bikers who want to get off the driveway and onto the dirt. Each bike comes with 3 Shred Til Bed MTB top tube skins, for your little one to make the bike their own.

Why 12 – 14” convertibility? The Dirt Hero takes 12” and 14” wheels sizes, or can be set up as a mullet. The Shotgun research team often saw kids making the leap straight from a 12” balance bike to a 16” pedal bike. Such a big step can not only hinder their progression but also impact their enjoyment of riding. Being able to move smoothly from a 12” to a 14” (and then adding brakes), all before having to take on a much heavier pedal bike keeps kids progressing one step at a time and the stoke levels high. Not having to buy a separate 14” in-between bike is also a great benefit for parents, simply upgrade the wheel kit and keep the good times rolling.
