” Lightweight ” is the most critical function for kids to learn how to ride and to have fun with riding. With the lightweight aluminum frame and front fork, Yotsuba Cycle is 30% lighter than those common kids bikes. It will allow kids to control bikes with ease and motivate them to ride more.
What if they can’t touch the ground with their feet? or what if they can’t hold the grips well? We know that will create them a sense of fear even before start riding.
With our kids optimized geometery, the stand over height is set as low as possible which provides much lower saddle height so more small kids can touch the ground with their feet.
In accordance with that design, we also lowered the BB height so those beginners (who mostly need to sit down when pedal) can move their legs without stress even with the lowest saddle position.
In addition, each size of bike is equipped with crankarms in the optimized length for each target age group.
Kids Optimized Control
Feeling confident that they can control speed by themselves is also important to be comfortable on bikes. So for those smaller hands, we adopted thinner grips and shorter reach brake levers which allows kids to moderate the speeds or stop as they wish. It will help them to develop their skils faster.
All of our bikes are equipped with a little thicker tires which help kids to stay in balance even at slower speed. It also provides a comfortable ride.
