Huffy is well-known for making budget-friendly, entry-level bicycles for American consumers. Their bikes are tested for safety and have a recommended maximum capacity. This is the maximum amount of weight the bike can safely carry while riding. Some Huffy bikes feature baskets and carriers, so the maximum weight refers to the weight of the rider plus anything else the bike is carrying. The maximum weight limit depends on the size of the bike.
Maximum Weight Capacities
Huffy makes adult bikes in 20-, 24- and 26-inch sizes. The maximum weight capacity for a 20-inch bike is 150 pounds. For a 24- or 26-inch bicycle, the maximum capacity is 250 pounds. This includes cruisers, all-terrain, BMX-style and mountain bikes. Huffy manufactures children's bikes in 12-, 14- and 16-inch sizes. The max capacity for a 12-inch bike is 60 pounds, and 80 pounds for a 14- or 16-inch bicycle.
