The world’s most advanced kids’ bike


Taking over from PINTO, the bigger SKØG features the same EPOK™ growing technologies, but rolls on bigger 16” wheels and yet weighs in at just 6.1kg. Whether new to riding, or moving up from the PINTO or another balance bike, the SKØG is the ultimate bicycle for your child to develop their riding on, learning easily, quickly and safely.

Our unique patented UP:SCALE growing frame design, and IN:GEAR two-speed drive system, allow you to easily transform the bike from a lightweight balance-bike, into a small pedal bike, then into a larger pedal bike as your child grows. The SKØG really is three bikes in one – replacing a separate balance bike, a conventional 14” and a conventional 16” bike.

Your child doesn’t need to ‘grow into it’ – with the SKØG, 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.)

Skøg Size & Modes

The SKØG rolls on 16” wheels and is the largest bike (at present!) in the Black Mountain EPOK range and is aimed at children around 4.5 years up, fitting those in the 102cm to 121cm height range, or until they are around 7 years old (depending on growth rate.) The SKØG can be ridden by taller or more confident riders as young as 4 year olds, starting off in balance bike mode, allowing them to gain confidence on the bike. Please use our sizing tool here to work out if the SKØG is right for your child based on their ability and height.

The SKØG really is three bikes in one – replacing a separate balance bike, and two conventional 14” and 16” bikes.

MODE 1

The SKØG 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 (we recommend running the bike in this mode for a while, even if your child can already ride, as it’s such a great way to allow them to get used to our bike’s responsive steering and brakes).

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 SKØG in this mode to be more like a conventional 14” 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 SKOG into a large pedal bike, which increases the frame size and gearing by about 20%, making the most of the easy rolling 16” wheel size, and lasting your child for longer.
