About Kidvelo Bikes

Designed For Kids, Built for Adventure!

Kidvelo® Bikes is a new brand launched in 2021, specialising in the manufacture of children’s bikes and made up of two family businesses; the former official Strider Distributors, based in Australia and the UK. We had clear ideas born from years of distributing thousands of balance bikes and listening to customers about the changes we wanted to make.

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. Simply adjusting seat height wasn’t sufficient in our mind; we also needed to include a top-quality headset. Considered every angle and Q-factor and discussed every component’s exact requirement. We were determined the 2-in-1 bikes work brilliantly in both modes!

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!

We had achieved our mission of designing, from scratch, a range of top-quality, lightweight no-pedal bikes. Some that you can add pedals to, so to ensure the longevity of use and prevent parents from having to buy twice. Superlight, robust, and built for adventure!

Our 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.

What is next?

You can add pedals to the 14″ or 18″ balance bike and convert it to a lightweight pedal bike, which will ride effortlessly over any terrain in either mode. These bikes are game-changers, with easy Fit pedal kits and familiar calliper braking systems, alongside proper geometry with pedals on or off. All are designed to meet the requirements of every child that rides one. Game-changers! These bikes are in production, and we don’t have an accurate expected stock date as yet, due to global logistics and manufacturing lockdowns.

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

    Can't get over the quality of this bike, for the price its phenomenal. All the essential features have been carefully considered and included. I especially like the footrests and reach adjustment the bars and stem enable. Height adjustment is easy and the seat post has measurements too which is really helpful. It's so light a 2-year-old can lift it easily. It was so quick and easy to assemble my 7yo built it with minimal guidance. It's a really good looking bike with good quality robust components. I absolutely love it!

    What a fabulous little bike. Bought for my niece as a Christmas present. She is 16 months and absolutely loves it. The bike arrived well packaged, instructions were clear and an absolute bargain for the quality. Thank you so much!

    My 3 year old loves his Kidvelo Rookie 12. This is his 1st bike and he's taken to it like a duck to water. He is so confident with it and obviously feels safe. The bike is very fairly priced, it was delivered quickly, its lightweight, easy to put together, and the quality is fantastic. My little one loves the chunky wheels and the bell too. I would definitely recommend this bike to anyone who is looking for their child's first bike.

    I don’t normally leave reviews, but I’m so impressed with our recent purchase of a Kidvelo bike that I thought this product was worthy of one. The first thing we noticed was the build quality of the product. It’s well made and really sturdy when put together. The black wheels and tyres look great and my little one loves the bright pink colour! I only wish I’d have known about this bike sooner as I would have bought one for my son, who seems to enjoy going on his little sisters bike more than his own! Thanks to all at Kidvelo for making a little girl really happy!

    Highly recommended Kidvelo Bikes Uk.
    We have the Rookie12 for our little boy. The bike feels super sturdy but lightweight for me to carry around where ever we are going! Super easy to put together my little man even got involved helping me put it together.
    My little one likes the extra features of the foot rest for going down little hills this also really helps with his balance for when he’s ready for the next size bike up.
    As a parent all the extra features with the handle bars and seat as they grow with him so I’m not having a buy a new one weekly is brilliant! “he don’t stop growing “😀
    Also the communication with Kidvelo Bikes Uk was Fantastic and all my questions answered.

    A Revelation!
    I work as a cycle instructor delivering Bikeability, Learn to Ride and led rides in the Town Park. I'm also the British Cycling Go-Ride lead at my cycling club. The club has been using a Rookie 12 to help keep younger siblings happy while brothers and sisters attend our sessions.
    The bike has been amazing, a revelation in fact. First of all, it's incredibly light, something that everyone comments upon. In fact, when the bike arrived we wondered if the box was empty!
    The steering has proper bearings, as do the hubs, so everything runs really freely. The MTB type handlebar stem is adjustable and the handlebars are shaped so that the reach can be tailored to the rider. The tyres are proper 12" pneumatic with Schrader (car type) valves and the relatively smooth tread pattern means there's the perfect combination of low rolling resistance and grip. There's a choice of 4 colours, but we have the bright green. You certainly can't miss it!
    I've come across lots of balance bikes, but this one stands way above anything else I've seen. You may find some of the features on other bikes, but the rookie 12 has them all in a brilliantly designed combination.
    Buy quality, your kids will thank you for it!
