Treat the kids this Christmas

As the dark, winter nights set in, the shops chime with carols and the kids pen their wish lists, it can only mean one thing – Christmas is coming. As the little ones buzz with excitement, adults are often left thinking “how the hell are we going to get all this shopping done?”

Well, that’s where we come in. Here’s a quick guide to all the awesome kid’s bikes and gear that we have to offer. Even if your little’un has forgotten to write their list, fear not, for we have something for just about everyone this Christmas.

Learning to ride

Our new model of kid’s bike, the Hotwalk, has dropped just in time for Christmas – a balance bike designed for fewer crashes and a whole load more smiles. The Hotwalk makes learning to ride simple. With no pedals or gears to work out, your toddler can scoot merrily away with their feet, learning how to balance themselves on two wheels.

The frame is constructed from a durable A1 Premium Aluminium and the wheels from a tough alloy material, both ensuring that the bike can take a few knocks before bouncing straight back up again. What’s even better are the Airless Rhythm Lite Sport tyres which never go flat or puncture, allowing your little ripper to ride just about anywhere.

Our Riprock Coaster bikes are also perfect for beginner bikers. With pedals, brakes and a single gear, these bikes will introduce your child to the most fundamental parts of a bike, getting them ready for a life on two wheels.

Like the Hotwalk, the Riprock Coaster is constructed from durable aluminium. A steel coaster brake is not only powerful and reliable, but it’s also well-suited for pulling off some awesome skids. This balance bike is available in multiple colourways and two different sizes – the 12 and 16.

Taking off the training wheels

Once your child has taken to a life on two wheels, it’s about time to get them a proper bike, one with brakes, gears, pedals and all the other accessories that the bicycles of their racing heroes have. Our Riprock and Hotrock bikes are perfect for this next stage, both extremely tough and durable in build and design – in other words, they’re 100% ‘kid-proof’.

The Riprock promises to channel all the burning adventurous spirit and unfettered energy of your child, granting them the ability to ride almost anywhere with its super grippy tyres, powerful disc brakes and a wide range of gears. Gearing can often be a little bit tricky for those still learning the ropes so we’ve thrown on a Shimano Revoshift shifter onto the Riprock, an intuitive little system that’s super easy to use without taking the hands from the bars – just twist and off you go!

For those kids yearning for a life on the trail, hungry for high speed and a whole load of mud, then the Hotrock is the perfect starter bike. It’s a fully-fledged trail shredder, all packed into a small kid’s bike. With bouncy suspension in the front, a wide range of gears and super responsive disc brakes, the Hotrock offers all the necessary components to really conquer off-road terrain. Like our other kid’s bikes, the Hotrock is constructed from super tough aluminium making it the perfect choice for the rough and tumble nature of trail riding.

Suited and booted

Before you let your little tykes speed away on their new bicycles, it’s super important that you make sure they’re sporting all the right safety gear. Helmets are a must, whatever kind of riding you’re doing.

 The Shuffle is a popular choice for all age groups and can be the perfect helmet for many youngsters throughout their early cycling careers. With an integrated LED tail light, the Shuffle not only protects your child’s head, but it also ensures that they’re seen should the weather turn gloomy.

The Mio is our smaller helmet, aimed specifically at toddlers and the smallest of riders. It’s incredibly light and comes in all manner of awesome designs, ensuring your child learns that helmets are in fact, super cool. A magnetic buckle improves comfort, as well as giving your little’un the facility to fasten their own helmet strap, encouraging those first steps – or pedal strokes – towards independence.

Feeling ready to face the Christmas shopping head on? Then head over to our full range of kid's bikes to pick the perfect present for your little person. And if you’re on the lookout for something to appease your growing teen, then why not come into one of our stores and size them up against one of our adult bikes. Perhaps even test out a little Christmas present for yourself.
