IT'S ALL ABOUT
Our bikes fit better and last longer, growing with your child. Use our interactive sizing tool to find out which of our lightweight EPOK bikes fits your child best.
Learning to ride with stabilisers or training wheels can actually mean it takes longer to learn. That's why our lightweight bikes start life as balance bikes which allow your child to learn to balance easily and safely.
Out dated and they don't really help, stabilisers are old news and here's why.
We’ve been committed to sustainable design and reducing our plastic waste since the start.
So we’re super happy to be recognised by the Sunday Telegraph’s Kids Magazine as a top sustainable product!
We make long-lasting bikes that are responsibly made.
Our bikes are lightweight with proper components, sized for small riders, and our unique lightweight, clean belt-drive system.
We believe that our growing frame technology will end the ‘sizing compromise’ that all parents face when trying to choose the right size bike.
Trying to gauge when it is the right time for your child to start balance biking can be a tricky business.
But as with most things, especially when you are a parent, you will know! To help you out a bit we’ve put together a little guide on when to start and a few tips on how to encourage your child and whilst building their confidence.
How to choose the right bike size? Let's start by measuring them correctly...
Measuring your child and getting the correct size of bike for them can be tricky. Some people use wheel size, age or inside leg measurement to work it out, but we find that your child’s height is the best way to calculate what bike will fit them correctly.
The balance bike has to be one of the great (re) inventions of the 21st century. They have transformed how children go about learning to ride a bike.
No longer do our kids have to suffer the pain of riding around on stabilisers – balance bikes are the new school, but how do you get your child balance biking like a pro?
