    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.

  • The perfect progression from scooting to pedaling

    Exclusive chainguard, size-specific aluminium cranks with a narrow Q-factor and Islabikes pedals, designed to rest at the perfect angle for set off. All combine to ensure a confident switch from scooting to pedalling.

    Q-factor diagram

    We’ve custom-made our cranks to narrow the Q-factor – the horizontal distance between the pedals. 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 a rider with longer legs. This increased angle is uncomfortable and makes pedaling less efficient because part of the pedaling force is going off sideways rather than downwards. Not only that, the sideways forces can make the rider sway as they pedal, upsetting steering and making learning difficult.

    By reducing the Q-factor we bring the riders feet closer together, instantly improving pedaling ergonomics.

    That’s not the only benefit. A low Q-factor means we can lower the bottom bracket closer to the ground meaning children can get their feet down when they want to stop, thereby feeling safer in the saddle.

    Our lightweight chainguard keeps fingers safe and trousers clean. It even clips on and off tool-free for easy wheel removal. Finally, we spec small chainrings selected for each Cnoc to keep gearing easy so little legs can pedal effortlessly.

  • Perfectly shaped saddles for little bottoms

    A child’s hips are far narrower than an adult’s so we created our own range of saddles that are proportional to the size of rider. Our saddles also ensure the rider uses the main part of their saddle and sits comfortably in the correct position relative to the pedals.
