The ultimate first geared bike for rider progression
HÜTTO starts life as a small lightweight pedal bike, which is ideal either as a first geared bike or as a natural progression on from any single geared bike. HÜTTO gives your child the chance to gain confidence and develop their cycling skills whilst mastering gears for the first time. Then with our unique patented UP:SCALE growing frame design you can transform the bike into a larger pedal bike as your child grows.
As with all of our UP:SCALE bikes your child doesn’t need to ‘grow into it’ – with HÜTTO you ‘dial’ it down to fit them properly from the start, then as they grow and get stronger, the bike frame grows and develops with them. And with our UP:RISE stem extender you can also increase the ‘cockpit’ size of the bike very easily. What this means is that HÜTTO (like KAPĒL) fits better, and lasts longer than any other kids’ bike (See here for sizing help).
Our patented ‘growing triangle’ frame allows you to dial the bike down to fit now, and then grow with your child.
Short- reach, easy-pull Tektro® brake levers, with skinny 19mm bars & custom safety grips – optimised for kids.
Our custom saddle and inverted seat clamp, allows the saddle to go extra low for even the smallest rider.
Our unique stem extender that moves the handles bars up 3cm and forward 2cm, giving the rider more room up front.
Super smooth 7–speed gearing to help you charge up the hills and fly down the other side.
CNC rims, extra-long brake arms and Schwalbe Black Jack tyres - for safe handling and braking, even in the wet.
HÜTTO Size & Modes
HÜTTO rolls on 20” wheels and is the second geared bike in the Black Mountain EPOK range. It is aimed at children from around 6 years old, fitting those in the 118cm to 134cm height range, or until they are approximately 8.5 years old (depending on growth rate). HÜTTO is the ideal starter bike for kids transitioning from a single speed bike to a fully geared bike. Please use our sizing tool to work out if the HÜTTO is right for your child based on their ability and height.
Our HÜTTO starts life as a small lightweight pedal bike, which is ideal either as a first geared bike or as a natural progression on from our 16” SKØG. With a low stand-over and confidence-inspiring geometry, HÜTTO gives children the chance to gain confidence and develop their cycling skills whilst mastering gears for the first time.
As the child grows in size and confidence you simply adjust the UP:SCALE frame system to transform HÜTTO into a large pedal bike, which increases the frame size by over 20%. This makes the most of the easy rolling 20” wheel size, and means that the bike will fit and last the child for longer. Adding our unique UP:RISE stem extender grows the front end of the bike further, giving the rider more room up front.
Some children come to cycling a little later in life and can find gears and pedals confusing at the start. Others may have struggled to learn on a heavier bike or may have balance difficulties or simply be low on confidence. So just like our smaller PINTO, SKØG and KAPĒL models you can also set up HÜTTO as a balance bike allowing the child to master balancing, and guaranteeing a successful transition to pedalling. (Note: The Balance Bike Kit for HÜTTO is purchased separately).
