Choose your new Rothan
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.
Simply perfect handling for growing hands
Perfectly sized stem, handlebars, super-slim grips and exclusive micro reach brake lever ensure the smallest hands can steer and stop easily. The Rothan’s handlebars are 370mm wide to suit the smallest rider’s shoulders, whilst downsized 19mm handlebar diameter and super slim grips give small hands a relaxed but secure grip and importantly reduce the brake lever reach.
Our game changing, micro reach brake levers give small hands full braking control. The Rothan’s downsized V brakes are hidden away under the rear stays away from scooting legs and our highly qualified mechanics pre-set every Rothan for the lightest brake action.
Super slim, soft touch grips complement the narrow diameter bar advantage. Large grip ends and internal bar plugs are designed to help prevent injuries in accidents.
Sealed ball bearings in the headset make steering light for easy balancing and a built in steering limiter stops bars twisting around, avoiding an unnecessary tangle.
Lightweight wheels that roll with ease
Wheels make a massive difference, especially on the smallest bikes. Our Rothan wheels have all of Islabikes’ signature super light, smooth rolling features. Even the tyres are our own exclusive lightweight design.
The Rothan’s wheels are based around our own lightweight 12″ alloy rims to save grams where it matters most. 12 radially laced spokes save weight, increase the comfort of the wheel and make access to the inner tube valve easy for blowing up your Rothan’s tyres.
Our exclusive narrow hubs allow us to design a narrower frame that doesn’t get in the way of striding legs whilst flush fit domed Allen Key wheel bolts won’t catch or scratch legs like conventional ones can.
Our custom Islabikes tyres are super light at 180g and give a smooth ride with a Kevlar strip built into the 72tpi construction to protect against punctures.
Unique saddle designed for scooting
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.
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.
