  • 12 inch, fully pneumatic tyres for comfort and “proper” bike feel

  • Light weight makes for easy learning

    It’s so much easier to teach your little one to ride on a lightweight bike. They need to feel in control, and you need a high quality, durable bike that will handle everything they throw at it. Once they have mastered the art of balance on their Rothan the step up to a first pedal bike comes naturally.

Lightweight Rothan
  • Braking and handling for little hands

    Little hands and shorter arms require a bike that makes steering and braking easy. The Rothan’s narrow handlebars ensure great control. The super thin yet durable grips enable them to grasp the bars securely and the micro-reach brake levers put light action braking within easy reach. It’s this attention to detail that makes the Rothan an unrivalled balance bike.

  • Proper tyres, like the big kids have!

    The Rothan may be a balance bike but it’s no toy. Having super-lightweight pneumatic tyres makes for a smoother, more enjoyable ride. Just wait for that magic ‘look no feet’ moment as they glide along, balancing a bike for the first time.

  • Start them early

    It’s incredible just how early children can learn to ride on the right bike. Many Islabikes customers have sent us pictures of their children breezing along on their Rothan from the age of two. Children aged two and three learn intuitively on a bike designed specifically for them.

Perfect sized Rothan
  • Supplied ready to ride

    At Islabikes we want to make sure everything is perfect from first touch to the joy of that first feet-up glide. Our mechanics prepare every Rothan before dispatch and with some minor assembly on arrival your little one will be ready to go.

    A spare inner tube and tools for easy set up are supplied with each bike.
