Premium aluminum frame reduces weight for better performance. Lighter than steel, aluminum is durable with a rust-resistant surface. With its lightweight, aluminum frame, this Escalate bicycle provides more rolling momentum so it’s easier to pedal for speed and acceleration.
This 21-speed bike delivers more control, momentum, and power over all types of terrain. Tackle the trails and ride with pride on the Escalate 26-inch Mountain Bike.

This bike would be perfect if you’re just entering the world of mountain bikes or if you’re interested in upgrading to a bike with good quality components. The Escalate comes with all the tools you need to finish the assembly of the 90% pre-assembled bike. After assembly it’s worth checking the bike over however we personally were not able to find any issues. The handlebar needed aligning and tightening but this is to be expected.

One common issue with budget bikes is the gear system sticking. However that isn’t an issue with the Escalate mountain bike. Huffy have done a great job in delivering a bike that shifts well and remains quiet throughout. This bike is great and we’d really recommend it if you want a cheap entry bike for racing around your local dirt track or going off-road.
