Learning how to ride a bike is one of life’s great milestones
There is no better way for your child to learn how to cycle than with one of our Cnocs. Each model has been designed with size-specific geometry and a full range of exclusive, purpose-made components to ensure fun riding from the start.
What makes Islabikes first pedal bikes the best children’s bikes? Read on…
The road to cycling enjoyment starts with a lightweight, well-fitting bike frame
Our Cnocs have custom-made, lightweight aluminium frames shaped to perfectly match the proportions of little bodies. That means they will be safe, comfortable and a joy to ride. Our premium chromoly steel fork takes the sting out of any ride and our super durable, vibrant colours makes the Cnoc look as good as it feels in the saddle.
Every component, made just for children
Our Islabikes' pedals are designed to rest at the perfect angle to start pedaling and our exclusive lightweight aluminium cranks are custom-made with a narrow Q-factor. This allows Cnoc riders’ feet to touch the ground without fuss, pedal comfortably and lean over in a corner without clipping the pedal. Lightweight smaller chainrings and sprockets offer a perfect 'learner gear' and our free-floating chainguard keeps oil away from legs, hands and trousers.
It's all about great control
We have spent years developing Islabikes’ own range of handlebars and stems to ensure your child stays in control whilst out riding. Our custom-made slim bars and grips keep hands in the perfect position and allow for easy reach of the brake levers. As with all Islabikes components, everything has been uniquely shaped to keep your little rider feeling like their bike was made just for them.
Quick to get going, safe to start slowing
From the very beginning, Islabikes has led the way with exclusive, child-specific micro-reach aluminium brake levers that even tiny hands can operate easily. Combining these with our super-effective Mini V-brakes, reinforced cable cradles and unique lightweight alloy wheel rims, means an Islabike rider can stop just as easily as they can go.
Lightweight, smooth rolling, fast spinning
Children’s bikes often come with very heavy, very basic wheels. At Islabikes we’ve worked hard to create something different. Our wheels come with super-light, custom-made aluminium hubs and rims, and are laced with the perfect amount of slim, light spokes. Then we fit them all with Islabikes exclusive tyres which feature a puncture resistant strip and reflective sidewalls. It all adds up to happy spinning for hours on end.
The cherry on top
We believe the sign of excellent design depth and brilliance shows in the saddle. Our design team has refined and redesigned our beautiful little saddles over the years to make the most perfectly sized and shaped saddles on any children’s bike. Children sit correctly on our saddles enhancing comfort and performance.
It’s the last ingredient in the most flawless starter bikes ever produced.
