    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.

  • Shimano STI levers give perfect control

    Luath riders can change gear and brake easily with Shimano STI levers that are custom set for smaller hands. Extra ‘top mount' brake levers mean riders can brake from anywhere on the bar without compromise. The Luath’s brakes are powerful enough for steep cyclo-cross descents or loaded touring with featherlight feel for maximum control. Cantilever brakes leave masses of room for mud, large tyres or mudguards.
