EPOK – FOR GROWING CHILDREN


Central to our design philosophy is that as kids grow and learn to ride, they go through stages – not just getting bigger, but developing in confidence, strength and ability.

EPOK is the name of the four core technologies and innovations that we have developed to address the stages and phases of the growing and learning young rider.

UP : SCALE


Our Patented growing-triangle frame – as your child grows, the bike gets longer and roomier with perfectly controlled geometry.

IN : GEAR

Our unique switchable cog system, lets the bike start with a easy low gear in small mode - then as the bike grows, switch up a gear, to rider faster, for longer.

GO : LOW

Our custom saddle rails allow us to hide the clamp up inside, allowing the saddle to be set extra low – perfect for smaller riders.

MY : SIZE

We insure that every contact point – the grips, brake levers, saddle, pedals & cranks are proportionally designed for small riders.

OUR GROWING FRAME


Our unique, patented adjustable frame system is the heart and soul of our bikes, dispensing with the traditional diamond frame and bringing forward the idea of the ‘growing triangle’.

By changing the size of the triangle by adjusting two sets of bolts on the top-tube, you increase the size of the bike – increasing the distance from saddle to handlebars, giving more room for the growing rider, and lengthening the wheelbase, which makes it more stable at higher speeds. Other key ‘geometry’ features like head-angle and rear-centre are strictly controlled as the bike expands from this small pedal mode into large pedal mode.
