    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.

  • Perfectly designed for a seamless transition to a pedal bike

    We believe the tiniest details make the biggest difference to small riders, so our holistic design philosophy even extends to our balance bike. The Rothan’s perfectly proportioned frame is made from lightweight aluminium and its chromoly fork is carefully designed to be light yet comfortable. The result is a bike with a total weight of just under 3.2kg so toddlers can pick up and go time and again without getting tired.

    Our exclusive Rothan saddle is specifically shaped for scooting. A scooped profile and textured top keeps the rider centred whether they’re just starting to find their balance point or striding out in style.
