EPOK SERIES: 2.5 YEARS+

PINTO 14" BIKE

Regular price £369.00

The world’s most advanced kids’ bike


The superlight PINTO weighs in at less than 6kg, and features our EPOK™ growing technologies that make it the ultimate bicycle for your child to learn to ride easily, quickly and safely.

Our unique patented UP:SCALE growing frame system, and IN:GEAR two-speed drive system, allow you to easily transform the bike from a lightweight balance-bike, into a super-small pedal bike, then into a larger pedal bike as your child grows. The PINTO really is three bikes in one – replacing a separate balance bike, and two conventional 12” and 14” bikes.

Your child doesn’t need to ‘grow into it’ - with the Pinto, you ‘dial’ it down to fit them properly from the start, then as they grow and get stronger, the bike grows and develops with them. It fits better and lasts longer than any other kids’ bike. (See here for sizing help.)

Pinto Size & Modes

The PINTO rolls on 14” wheels and is the smallest bike in the Black Mountain EPOK range and is aimed at children from around 3 years old, fitting those in the 90cm to 109cm height range, or until they are around 5 years old (depending on growth rate.) The PINTO can be ridden by taller or confident 2.5 year olds, if they are already balance biking confidently. This makes it the ideal starter bike for kids transitioning from a mini balance bike. Please use our sizing tool here to work out if the PINTO is right for your child based on their ability and height.

The PINTO really is three bikes in one – replacing a separate balance bike, and two conventional 12” and 14” bikes.

MODE 1

PINTO starts life as a small lightweight balance bike, which is ideal for your child to learn on. This offers them the chance to gain confidence, getting used to the bike’s geometry, brakes and riding position before they transfer to the first pedal bike mode.

MODE 2

When ready, you simply install the included PowerPack – our neat upgrade that brings into play the cranks, pedals and our unique lightweight, oil free drive belt, transforming the balance bike into a small pedal bike. The small frame with a short wheelbase and ‘reach’, low saddle height and easy low geared pedalling allows the PINTO in this mode to be more like a conventional 12” bike, so smaller riders can get on the bike safely and easily, and earlier than with a normal bike.

MODE 3

Then as your child grows in size and confidence, you simply adjust the UP:SCALE frame and IN:GEAR system (see here for how this works) to transform the PINTO into a large pedal bike, which increases the frame size and gearing by about 20%, making the most of the easy rolling 14” wheel size, and lasting your child for longer.

BIKEBOX

Your bike arrives in our specially designed BikeBox to keep it safe during transport. We conduct a 60 point Pre-Delivery Inspection on every bike, we even check the tyre pressures before they leave our warehouse.

THE POWERPACK™

Included in every BikeBox is the PowerPack – everything you need to upgrade your bike into a small pedal bike. The PowerPack contains a seat tube, cranks, pedals and belt, all in their own neat little box that you can keep safe until your little one is ready to ‘power-up’.

TOOLS INCLUDED

You don’t need many tools to configure and adjust the bike, but we include everything you need. It’s easy to do, and no more complex than mending a puncture. 

MINIMAL ASSEMBLY NEEDED

The bike arrives 90% assembled in balance bike mode*, with you only needing to add the handlebars and the front wheel, then drop in the saddle, and you’re off. It’s s a five-minute setup at most (*if you want us to configure the bike in a pedal mode for you, just let us know when you check-out).
