Very light bike, easy to adjust to child.
Love the belt drive. No greasy chains.
No mudguards, and doesn't seem possible to mount any on the bike. Kids don't mind getting muddy though.

Arguably our most rewarding bike as well as one of the hardest to develop. At a little over 5.5kgs the Belter sets the standard. It's worth bearing in mind that every kilo on a 3 year olds' bike is the equivalent of 4 or 5 on an adult bike. At 5kgs lighter than most 16" bikes, that's a big difference to a child.

It's not just the weight however, everything is designed low rolling resistance. The high thread count high psi tyres, the cartridge bearing hubs and even bespoke full bearing aluminium pedals all play a part. But it is the belt drive that steals the show, a belt will never stretch like a chain, it'll never be gunked up by dirt and grease and it will be as good the day your kid has finished with it as the day they first rode it and dad doesn't have to worry about maintaining it.

  • Thanks to bespoke components trhoughout, this bike is all about removing barriers.
  • Lightweight, with low rolling resistance thanks to cartridge bearings (hubs, pedals, bottom brackets) and semi-slick tyres, this bike allows the youngest of riders to enjoy a pedal bike in the same way they've enjoyed their balance bike.
  • A bike that makes the transition to pedalling as seamless as our belts.
