Wheels: 14-inch Alloy Rims – with Joytech alloy hubs and sealed bearings. Quality wheels that are strong with performance axles that keep things spinning nicely. Kidvelo Bikes are fitted with a free wheel (meaning the bike will still move forwards, even if the pedaller stops for a rest).
Seat Height: adjusts to fit a 40 – 59 cm inseam (to offer the perfect fit with a bend in the knee). The stand-over height is 36cm. Kidvelo offers more seat height adjustability than any other bike.
Headset: 1 1/8″ threadless with 50mm Alloy Stem. Smooth-turning action at every stride. No plastic headsets!
Seat: Comfy padded child saddle designed to cater to young children’s narrower hip spacing. Height adjusted by using an Allen key. Unfortunately, we can’t spec with a quick release clamp under the safety specification for young kids’ pedal bikes ISO8098:2014).
Wheelbase: 705mm. We stretch our wheelbase as it gives a more stable ride and more room for a growing child.
In balance mode weight: 4.7 kg – removable footrest. It’s one of the lightest around. The footrest is easy to put on and take off, offering you complete flexibility. Slimline to not catch ankles, and wide enough to place feet.
In pedal mode weight: 6.2 kg Kidvelo are in the featherweight class of quality kids’ first pedal bikes! This is so important as if the bike is too heavy, your child just won’t want to ride it!
Brakes: Front and Rear Aluminium V-brakes with short-reach levers that can be adjusted for short fingers. Brake tension is also fully adjustable to make them easier to pull. We use calliper brake systems that are familiar.
Integral Brake Cables: Our cables are routed through the frame, to ensure they don’t get damaged if your child takes a spill.
