The OSET 16.0 Eco is the sister bike to the well established 16.0 Racing. The Eco utilizes a component set suited to new riders and is offered at a lower price than the Racing version.
What’s New for 2017:
Updated sticker graphics.
New style thinner grips, suitable for smaller hands.
Padded chin guard fitted to the stem.
Side panel Velcro straps design changed to allow easier refitting of panels.
The same drive system as the 16.0 Racing is used, featuring the OSET 36v 800w motor and 3 dial controller housed in the same frame as the 16.0 Racing. Differences to the 16.0 Racing amount to the component set, and include the wheels & tyres, forks, shock, handlebars and stem. The suspension is pre-load adjustable. The disc brakes are of the mechanical (rather than hydraulic) variety, and are still ‘reach adjustable’ for small hands. The OSET 16.0 Eco is a very capable machine for novice riders, and those dipping their toes into competitions.
Safety features are paramount. On on/off handlebar switch is easily operated by the rider, while the separate key switch is easily removable by the parent when it’s time to take a break! The OSET controller has been designed for our exclusive ‘3 dial’ system, which allows parents to easily adjust the characteristics of the bike. By simply removing the rubber bung in the ‘tank’ area, the responsible adult can adjust the speed, power and response of the bike. It can be set from a very mellow machine at walking pace and low power, all the way up to a competition level machine with maximum power. For those learning to ride, the throttle response can be set so the reaction of the bike to throttle openings is softened.
For 5-7 year olds, this bike is a great choice!
