THE BIKE EVERY KID WOULD LOVE TO LEARN ON.
E-350 | AGE: 4 – 6 YEARS | HEIGHT: 95 – 117CMS
Ability Level: Able to ride or ready to learn.
This bike redefines children’s bikes for innovation and excellence.
From the smooth handling long wheelbase to the ultra-efficient tall wheels, safe braking with a footbrake and two calibrated alloy handbrakes, every single component has been carefully selected. Just 8+kgs.
At the heart of every ByK Bike is a well designed frame and weighing in at less than 1kg, your child will have a light and easy bike to ride. Small children have a narrow pelvis. We believe for a child to ride comfortably and in the correct position, the saddle should be padded and matching the size of their body – we have done just that with the E-350.
Bonded Alloy Mud Guards and an Alloy Front Basket are available as separate accessories
With lightweight alloy wheels, we’ve made pedalling easier; professional bike riders insist on them so why shouldn’t our kids too! And the smooth, faster-rolling tyres don’t wear little legs out so quickly – as opposed to regular BMX kids bikes that have wide tyres with big knobs that most kids struggle to get going on. At just over 8kgs, the E-350 is approximately 30% more efficient than comparative kids bikes.
To make a children’s bike safe, the rider needs to be able to brake efficiently and confidently. On the front we have used an alloy side pull calliper for developing immediate hand control, and at the rear a coaster brake for simple and safe foot braking.
We have used alloy front and rear callipers with light action for superior control and a simple and safe coaster style foot brake. The best of both worlds we believe. The custom-sized V-Brakes we have used are calibrated for age, ability and ergonomic fit. And they are made of non-flexing, strong and light alloy. Our light weight alloy rims ensure pedalling is easier. But more importantly alloy rims are a more efficient braking surface than cheaper, chrome-plated steel rims, and are therefore safer.
Little Details Count:
Increased knee to handlebar clearance for growing bodies.
Alloy seat clamp.
Custom length cranks.
Pedals with bearings.
Smooth running tyres to reduce road friction and noise so your child can hear safety instructions.
Ergonomic riding triangle between pedals, seat and handlebar for best balance and efficiency.
Long wheelbase for more predictable handling at higher speeds.
HOW TO CHOOSE THE RIGHT SIZE KIDS BIKE
When it comes to choosing the right size kids bike, our over-riding advice is ‘smaller is better than bigger’. Children learn to ride with greater ease, have more control on the bike and have a lot more fun if they are the master of their domain.
Our overall advice on choosing the right size kids’ bike is based not only on Age and Height, but Ability and Personal Confidence.
It is all too common to see parents using height as the only key measurement for a bike’s correct size. Be careful: it can easily be misleading as an indicator. As most kids’ balance develops at roughly the same speed, using age with ability is far more relevant. If you can add age, with height, and ability (ability is a hard one to measure but as a parent you must be honest and realistic) and confidence, than you have a really good indicator.
A BIKE IS THE RIGHT SIZE WHEN YOUR CHILD CAN:
Sit on the saddle and rest the balls of both feet on the ground.
Straddle the top bar with a comfortable clearance and with both feet flat on the ground.
Reach the handlebars with a slight bend in the arms when sitting on the seat.
If there are handbrakes, your child should be able to grasp them and apply enough pressure to stop the bike.
The most common reason kids have to move up a size on a normal bike is because of the lack of knee room between the seat and handlebars. This forces you to put up the seat and then your child loses interest or confidence in riding because the centre of gravity is really high and hence the bike becomes even more difficult to ride.
ByK bikes have more knee room than other bikes, which helps to lengthen the life of the bike and make the bike handle in a more predictable way.
