About Us Kidvelo:

Designed For Kids, Built for Adventure!

Kidvelo® Bikes is a new brand launched in 2021.  Specialising in the manufacture of children’s balance bikes. Made up of two family businesses, both former official Strider Distributors, based in Australia and the UK.  Clear ideas born from years of distributing thousands of balance bikes and listening to customers. Changes we wanted to make.

Kidvelo set out to manufacture top-quality, well-designed bikes and deliver them directly to our customers. All at very competitive pricing. Backed up with our award-winning levels of customer support here in the UK.

What we did!

We needed to make some changes to the frame design. The Kidvelo Bikes have a higher handlebar by design, as it is easier for young children. Increasing the wheelbase length to give more room in the cockpit, to accommodate growing children. Simply adjusting seat height wasn’t sufficient in our mind; we also needed to include a top-quality headset. Every angle, Q-factors and the exact requirements of every component, was scrutinised. We were determined the balance to pedal bikes worked brilliantly in both modes!

Australia and the UK team spent 2019/2020 on zoom. It took longer than we hoped due to the global impact of Covid.

In 2021, Kidvelo launched in both countries!

We had achieved our mission of designing, from scratch, a range of top-quality, lightweight balance bikes. Some that you can add pedals to. Superlight, robust, and built for adventure!

Our balance bikes offer the most comfortable riding position. This enables kids to ride with less effort and manoeuvre the bike with ease and greater control. Threadless sealed headsets, kid-specific saddles, small-diameter grips, handlebars, properly sized cranks, protective sealant, we could go on… They will handle anything a kid can ask of them. All this comes in a brightly coloured, lightweight frame so kids can fall in love with biking just as you did.

What is next?

The 14″ or 18″ balance bike that you can add pedals to and convert to a lightweight pedal bike, which will ride effortlessly over any terrain, in either mode. With easy installation or removal of a pedal kit, familiar caliper braking systems, alongside proper geometry in balance bike or pedal mode. Designed to meet the requirements of every child that rides one. Game-changers!

A child’s first bike is far more than just a bike. It opens up a window of adventure and exploration, an independent transport method and hopefully a love of the outdoors and exercise. We take the responsibility, of your child’s first two-wheeled experience, very seriously. Gary and Karen Wood. UK| Anthony and Nicole Kotarac, AUS
