What the press say

Islabikes

Total Women’s Cycling

“Before Islabikes, children had a raw deal when it came to bicycles. They were riding bikes that weighed half their body weight, struggling to reach the brakes, and generate enough power to use them even if they could”

Cycling Weekly

“How long it takes your child to learn to ride can really vary but 45 minutes is a realistic time frame, provided that they’re ready to ride. That coordination development has to come first. It’s important that you wait until that point rather than forcing it because then it can become stressful!”

Get out with the kids

“Overall, we’re absolutely delighted with our Islabikes and the joy and freedom our children are getting from them”.

“They’re so well-designed and aimed perfectly at each age group and, importantly, are lightweight enough that even very young children can handle them with ease”.

Rothan

Independent

“This aluminium-framed balance bike is the lightest in our roundup, weighing just 3.2kg. The custom handlebar and grips are narrower than most, with our testers telling us these features – along with the restricted steering and mini-brake – made them feel more in control.”

Road CC

Luath

Road CC

“The overall look is svelte and minimalist, helped by a healthy layer of metallic paint – in our case a two-tone lime green. The bike performed exactly as advertised. For a jack of all trades machine, built to a price, the Luath impressed with speed, agility and general handling”

The Guardian

“Light, strong and durable, the Luath is a set of wheels your kids will love”

Cyclosport

“Abby absolutely loves riding it, and from an adult’s perspective the bike is great. The fit and finish is top notch… and with the additional personal service they offer too, you really can’t go wrong.”

UK Cyclocross

“All in all, Islabikes have done a very impressive job here and test-pilot Elsie’s first few rides really served to prove that those details work. Gear changes, remounts, and generally wanting to go out on the bike were all improved! She’s looking forward to the first race on it in a couple of weeks massively at the moment… and dad can’t wait either.”

Creig

Cycle Sprog

The Creig 26 is true to the Islabikes philosophy of being light in weight, coming in at a measly 11.3kg. It also packs a mighty punch when it comes to the specification with kids specific geometry and components sized to match.
