The acclaimed Belter, released in 2011 and refined without compromise since. The first kids bike to win the coveted Eurobike award (2012) and the only kids bike to go onto win Gold (2016), the industry's highest mark. Quite simply, there isn''t a bike they have put more effort into, because there isn''t a bike more important to your child''s cycling future.
Made from only the very good stuff. The spec is the result of many years experience and reads like an adult bike wish list; four bearing cassette hub, all aluminium frameset, forged aluminium cranks, forged drop outs, CNC''d drivetrain, hollow axles, external cup bottom bracket, aluminum pedals, sealed cartridge bearings, Gates belt drive, Ritchey controls.
Overkill? Well, no - not if it removes the hurdles in the way of kids riding. The bike is incredibly lightweight with a geometry and the controls that inspire confidence. Its super clean belt drive means it can be carried, chucked in the back of the car or ridden without a change of clothes. It''s virtually maintenance free, so always ready to ride when the opportunity arises, without relying on mum or dad to maintain it. And its super durable, so whether it''s about seeing through a hatful of kids or recovering an investment when the time comes, this bike has it covered.
