Your young rider has been complaining that they're too big for their old bike already, and after watching them try to take makeshift backyard jumps on a suspension free frame, you can see they're ready for an upgrade. Diamondback's Lustre 24 will give them a taste of front suspension, and it's built with quality components that you can trust to grow with them as they ride endless laps around the backyard and gain confidence with you on local trails. The Lustre 24's frame is made out of 6061 aluminum, a treated version of the metal with an ideal blend of low weight and high durability. Young riders who have never experienced suspension before will be pleasantly surprised the next time they hit a few tree roots or rocks in the yard the Trail fork offers them added plushness with 40mm of travel. Our guess is that they'll only want to go up from there. As the fork name suggests, the frame's geometry is designed to resemble an XC bike, with a moderate, 69 degree head tube angle to keep them upright and able to practice picking their own lines as they navigate new terrain. Many youth bike manufacturers don't realize the importance of providing kids with bikes made with quality components for their adventures. Fortunately, Diamondback is aware that dependability matters to young riders as much as it does to their parents, and they build the Lustre 24 with easy to use Shimano componentry. The seven speed drivetrain and triple cranks equip kids with a variety of gear ratios that will allow them to tackle challenging new terrain with confidence, and Shimano Revo Twist grip shifters make navigating new gears simple. Diamondback includes its rugged Jr. ATB Knobby tires on the Lustre 24, and it adds reliable alloy linear pull brakes to help fearless future cycling stars stay in control.
