The Huffy Summit Ridge is equipped to deliver in looks and in performance. The striking denim blue gloss, the 21 speed gearing system & front suspension all add up to a great looking hardtail ready for action.
Backed by Huffy’s limited lifetime (see owner’s manual for details), The hi-ten steel hardtail frame provides solid performance and efficiently transfers your pedal power for strong acceleration on straight surfaces and uphill climbs. This 26-inch model is ideal for a rider height above 5 feet and comes with an alloy quick release enabled height adjustable seat post.
The ATB saddle, with premium padding, has stitched sides for lasting comfort. Front suspension on the Summit Ridge handles uneven terrain with ease. The kolo 1200 fork, in rich black gloss, absorbs any bumps and dips encountered on your path for a smoother-feeling ride.
The indexed Shimano TZ-31 rear derailleur combines with the micro-shift twist shifter to deliver 21 speeds on-demand for uphill climbing, downhill riding, or pure acceleration. The removable rear derailleur guard protects the gears from any unintentional damage. Knobby 26″ X 1. 95″ tires provide good traction in wet and dry conditions, dirt, gravel or pavement. Lightweight alloy wheels in matte black blend well with the overall design of the Summit Ridge.
Front and rear steel linear pull handbrakes provide consistent, dependable stopping action on demand. The slight-rise handlebar enables upright riding to minimize back and shoulder strain. Huffy grips remain comfortable to the touch, on both short and longer rides.
The ATB-type resin pedals on the 3-piece kolo steel crank have a good, responsive feel. The Summit Ridge comes with a mounted kickstand included.
If only there were mudguard/fenders. Perhaps you could get some and add them yourself?
