    Islabikes Sizing

    How to measure height:
    • Ask your child to remove their shoes and stand straight, with their back against a wall.
    • Place a book on their head so that it touches the wall.
    • Make sure your child still has their heels on the ground, then mark with a pencil where the bottom of the book touches the wall.
    • Measure from the mark to the floor.
    How to measure inside leg:
    • Ask your child to take off their shoes and stand straight, with their back against a wall.
    • Place a book between their legs and slide it up the wall to meet the crotch firmly as if they are sat on a saddle.
    • Make sure your child still has their heels on the ground, then mark with a pencil where the top of the book the touches the wall.
    • Measure the distance from that mark straight down to the floor.

     

    Why is sizing so important?

    With the correct size bike, your child will develop their cycling skills quickly, easily and safely whilst being more comfortable on their bike. Not only does this help increase confidence and boost their self-esteem but, best of all, it means they can start riding straight away.

  • Perfect control for small hands

    Everything on our Beinn handlebars is designed exclusively to give smaller hands full size control. From our unique super-light brake levers and downsized bars to grips, nothing is too much trouble to guarantee safety and comfort.

    We shook the world of children’s bike design when we introduced our exclusive junior-size brake levers. The latest versions are proportionally sized for each age group and we preset reach and pad position before delivery for guaranteed fingertip control. Light action, high performance mini V brakes provide steep descent power.

    Each Beinn gets a lightweight bar with its own width and shape. That means grips, brakes and gears are all in the right place, not cramped together. The size-specific sweep angle puts hands and wrists in the most comfortable position to handle the steering and brakes. Our custom 19mm diameter is 30% slimmer than standard adult bars, which married to super slim grips guarantees a secure grip and keeps brake levers within easy reach.

    In addition, the grips are designed to prevent injuries during those inevitable crashes. They are reinforced at the end and feature bar plugs for the added protection from exposed handlebar ends. Finally the Beinn’s stem can be flipped to adjust bar height and we also add height setting spacers to allow for perfecting rider positioning.

  • Comfortable and efficient pedaling

    You won’t find Islabikes’ size-specific, narrow-stance cranks and specially shaped pedals on any other bike, which is why a Beinn starts, pedals, corners and stops better than any other kids’ bike.

    We don’t compromise any part of a Beinn, particularly something as crucial as cranks and pedals. Beinn cranks are the right length for each bike and its rider, so there’s no overstretch of legs and pedaling is efficient and easy. Shorter cranks also allow a lower, more stable bike for confident cornering without clipping pedals.

    Q-factor diagram

     

    The narrow Q factor (the distance between pedals) of Islabikes cranks mean feet are closer together when pedaling. But why is Q-factor important?

    With a wide Q-factor a rider with shorter legs will find their legs going out to the side when pedaling at a far greater angle than an adult rider with longer legs. This increased angle is uncomfortable and makes pedaling less efficient because part of the force is going off sideways rather than downwards. Not only that, the sideways forces can make the rider sway as they pedal.

    Double chainguards keep the chain secure even across rough terrain and the single front chainring makes changing gear a simple sequential process, not a major headache.

    Our lightweight exclusive pedals are size-specific, designed to rotate under the foot for easy getaway and give more ground clearance in corners, ruts and roller coaster whoops when a dab can be a disaster.

  • Perfectly shaped saddles for the longest adventures

    Islabikes saddles naturally centre Islabike riders to guarantee efficient pedaling and a comfortable position. Whilst carefully distributed padding is soft enough for impromptu play but firm for the right support on the longest adventures.
