    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.

  • Junior-tuned air sprung suspension forks offer confident control

    The Creig comes spec’d with RST’s F1RST air sprung suspension fork. It is pre-adjusted in-house to suit a typical junior rider but can be easily adjusted as rider confidence and terrain challenges grow. The 60 and 80mm travel F1RST suspension forks have a hydraulic lockout lever to stop bounce on climbs and the rebound adjustment range is right for lighter riders too, so there’s no pogo problems on the way down. To top it all the F1RST is fully serviceable.

  • Lightweight 1 x 11 setup for simple shifting

    Our narrow wide chainring and clutch equipped SRAM NX rear derailleur keep the chain quiet and secure on the roughest trails, whilst the wide range 11 speed, 11 – 42T cassette combined with a 32T front chainring give aspiring riders the gears they need.

  • Custom bars with SRAM Grip Shift and braking give smaller hands unrivaled control

    The Creig’s super slim handlebar setup guarantees great grip and brings hands closer to the brake levers whilst SRAM Grip Shift deliver perfect shifting.

    The light action SRAM NX 11 speed Grip Shift ensures the whole hand is kept on the bar at all times, even during shifting. They’re totally intuitive to use, have a light 1:1 cable action and much less movement per shift than trigger shifters, making them ideal for smaller hands.

    SRAM’s brake levers have a unique close-to-bar pivot point which is perfect for riders with shorter fingers. We also adjust every brake lever so they start working at the sweet spot that offers maximum control and power for smaller hands.

    The hydraulic SRAM DB1 brakes give more accurate, lighter action than cable brakes and self-adjust as pads wear for perfect speed control in every situation.

    Our handlebars are not just cut down adult bars. Exclusive narrow diameter, lightweight double butted handlebars are made to the correct length and sweep for smaller riders. Carefully calculated wrist angle and a short central bulge gives comfortable control plus plenty of room for brakes and shifters. Finally, Islabikes’ narrow diameter, soft touch, super slim grips allow smaller hands to wrap around the bar and keep fingers closer to brake levers.
