What makes the Cleary Owl 3-speed special? No derailleur. The Owl 3-speed has the gears INSIDE the rear hub to make it more durable and nothing to break or bend. Also, the child can shift whether they are pedaling or not!
Gear range: 32 x 19T middle gear. Gear ratio with 25% gear reduction in lowest gear and 33% increase in top gear.
- Expert bike geometry centers weight between the rider’s hands and seat, which creates a stable, quick-handling bike

- Slim, junior race-style vegan leather saddle designed to maximize a rider’s range of motion while minimizing chafing and weight
