The (last) word on the street.
The Belter 24 is stunning, whichever way you look at it, and whenever. A maintenance free Shimano hub and beautifully clean belt drivetrain because winter is hard enough without having to regularly clean out 'mud glue' from derailleurs and clean clothes smeared by greasy chains or speared by grimey rings. An incredible 310% gear range provided by 8 evenly spaced gears because our 10-going-on-20 year olds like to go places, fast, no matter what's in the way. Instant changing to any gear you want, whether peddling or not for those stop start urban rides, try that with a derailleur and see how far you get.
Hydraulic disc brakes on 160mm rotors because towns have hills too, and stopping power around traffic is even more important than on the trails. So is control, which is why our Belter 24 has the same custom Ritchey finishing kit and direct mount crankset as our race ready full suspension bikes. Speedster 2" tyres for comfort and confidence when hitting curbs and unexpected pot holes, oh, and 32 spoked rims to make sure the wheels don't buckle under the stress.
Robust, lightweight, nimble, fast, clean, maintenance free, durable, beautiful and safe. The Belter 24 meets the wishlist of the most active kids on the streets as well as the most concerned parents at home.
