Like Mercedes, the two best colors for any serious racer will always be gloss black and Titanium silver. OK, that may be a matter of opinion but it’s one Haro seems to agree with, at least as far as the Haro Junior is concerned.
Quite a bit more serious than the average junior “racer” Haro’s offering may well be the ride-du-jour for any kid talented enough to need one. Starting with Haro’s well-science T-6061 aluminum alloy frame, the Junior is already well set to handle all sorts of abuse. Chromoly front forks and super-strong Alienation Ankle Biter rims are designed to absorb any sort of landing, especially those which may be lacking in the sort of well-practiced grace more experienced riders may (or may not) have.
A strong 3-piece alloy crankset will take all the strain any junior rider is capable of producing, and can be relied upon to stay strong on rough landings. An Odyssey freewheel comes standard, making landings and pulling off wicked stunts a safer and simpler affair.
As a whole, the Haro Junior represents an evolution, if not a revolution, in the speed game for younger riders. Given the ever increasing quality of Haro’s bikes over the past 20 years, that is certainly no bad thing. As with all Haro’s, the Junior is a great buy for the money and the perfect tool for young but experienced riders to exploit all their developing skills.
