Choose your new Cnoc
The perfect start

It can be used as a balance bike by simply removing the pedals. The Cnoc is super lightweight with perfect fitting, proportionately designed componentry. All the ingredients to make learning as easy and fun as possible. Our aim is to instill a lifelong love of cycling!
Made to measure fit
Children’s bikes often fall foul of cost saving shortcuts aimed to reduce costs in detriment to the fit and feel of a bike. All Islabikes feature unique to us componentry such as cranks, saddles, handlebars, grips, brake levers, wheelsets and pedals. These components are all designed to perform as perfectly as possible for the size of the intended rider. All interacting seamlessly to give the absolute best riding performance.
Are you pedalling comfortably?
The horizontal distance between pedals (known as Q Factor) is an important yet often overlooked factor on children’s bikes. If you’ve ever seen a child riding a bike without an optimised Q Factor you’ll see their legs splaying out to the side as they pedal – an inefficient and wobbly way to get around! All Islabikes are fitted with our own optimised cranksets that enable children to maximise their pedalling efficiency whilst giving a more stable riding experience. Just make sure you can keep up with them!
Clean and safe fully enclosed chainglider
Chains can be all too tempting for inquisitive little hands, that’s why the chains on our Cnoc starter bikes are fully enclosed in our free-floating “chainglider”, a unique to Islabikes chainguard that allows the chain to run smoothly in a tough, plastic case whilst keeping clothes clean and fingers safe.
Mudguard fittings for good clean fun
All Cnoc frames come with fixtures ready to mount our exclusive full coverage mudguards.
