Electra Bicycle Co.

2021 Sun Shimmer 1 16"

Available In-Store Only

We’ve answered the age-old question of what’s at the end of a rainbow. Turns out, it's Electra's Sun Shimmer 1 16". Bright, shimmering rainbows and suns interplay with rich metallic clouds and raindrops throughout the frame. Specially-designed custom saddle, grips and valve caps complete the look for a bike that captures all the fun of playing outside regardless of the weather.



It's right for you if...

You're looking for a bike that is as unique and vibrant as they are. We design our kids' bikes with the same attention to detail as other Electra bikes, and of course the same level of quality and comfort. Our patented frame geometry ensures proper leg extension and no tippy-toe stops. Kids will be kids. Yours will just be a little cooler.

The tech you get

A cruiser steel frame and our patented Flat Foot Technology® are the makings of a perfect ride for your little one. A rear coaster brake and front caliper brake are combined with a custom saddle, grips and valve caps complete the look. This single-speed bike brings sunshine even on a cloudy day.

The final word

Remember when you first learned how to ride a bike? Whether it was to a certain destination or nowhere in particular? It was simple and fun. Remember fun? We do. Electra kids’ bikes feature quality, comfort and control in unique designs that will give your kids instant bike rack cred.


Why you'll love it

  1. Sun Shimmer captures all the fun of playing outside regardless of the weather.

  3. This 16" model comes with matching fenders, saddle and grips with beautiful designs your kids will love.
  4. With coaster brakes and a front brake, this single-speed bike just made learning to ride easier for your kid.
  5. Accessorize their new ride with a matching or coordinating helmet.

The charts below show our recommended sizes based on height, but there are some other factors, like arm and leg length, that determine a great fit. That’s why you’ll see some overlap in our recommendations. Not every rider who’s 5´8˝, for example, will fit on the same size bike. The best way to find your perfect fit is to consult the experts at your local Trek retailer.
