          Effortless learning

          It’s amazing just how much easier it is for a child to learn to ride when they’re on the right bike. The lightweight Rothan weighs just 3.1kg allowing your child to easily manoeuvre and control the bike whilst fully focusing their efforts on learning to balance. Once confidence and balance have been mastered the transition to a bike with pedals couldn’t be easier. 

          Braking and control for little hands

          The Rothan’s handlebars are narrow in width and diameter to ensure your child is always comfortably in control, whilst our durable, super-thin grips enable a secure grasp of the handlebars. The effective light-action brake is within easy reach and provides a safe introduction to the concept of braking.

          Smooth rolling comfort

          The Rothan may be a balance bike but it’s no toy. Having lightweight pneumatic tyres makes for a smoother, more enjoyable ride.

          Confidence in the saddle

          Our exclusive Rothan saddle is specifically shaped for scooting. The scooped profile and textured top keeps the rider centred as they start to find their balance point and provides a reassuring platform to push against as they gain in confidence.

          Carefully prepared by us

          An Islabikes bike builder will prepare your Rothan 12 before dispatch and, following some minor assembly on arrival, your little one will be ready to go.

          The Rothan 12 comes with a set of hex keys for easy setup on arrival. 

          Why balance bikes are the gateway to cycling

          Great for building physical confidence and developing skills, a balance bike will set your child up for a lifelong love of cycling.
