About Us – Kidvelo Bikes

Designed For Kids, Built for Adventure!

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

Who are Kidvelo?

Kidvelo® Bikes is a new brand launched in 2021, specialising in the manufacture of children’s bikes. The founders are from two family businesses; the former official Strider Distributors, based in Australia and the UK. We had clear ideas born from 14 years of teaching children to ride, distributing thousands of balance bikes and listening to customers.

Kidvelo set out to manufacture top-quality, well-designed bikes and deliver them directly to our customers. Our toddler bikes were launched first, with the convertible bikes arriving later this year. All at very competitive pricing and backed up with our award-winning levels of customer support here in the UK.

What we did to improve on our bikes!

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 space can accommodate growing children better. Making the lightest bike available whilst simply adjusting seat height wasn’t sufficient in our mind; we also needed to include top-quality components.

Kidvelo bikes offer the most comfortable riding position to enable kids to ride with less effort and manoeuvre with ease and greater control. Threadless sealed headsets, kid-specific saddles, small-diameter grips, handlebars, appropriately 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!

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

In 2021, Kidvelo launched in both countries!
