"Well worth the money…"
We bought this bike for my son when he was 3 1/2 as he was riding his balance bike so well, but it was nearly too small for him. He wasn't keen to leave his balance bike behind, but once he'd agreed to try it, he was pedalling away within an hour. He's since progressed to another balance bike and his little brother is riding it. They were both riding bikes before they were four with no stabilisers. Having seen and carried some of their friends bikes, I know it has been worth the money. They can ride up hills with no problems as the bike is really light, and the brakes respond really well. I tell everyone not to waste money on cheap bikes, much better to bite the bullet and get an Isla bike. When my younger son outgrows it, it will be passed on to a cousin but could easily be resold for 1/2 to 2/3 of the purchase price.Read moreLess
"A lovely little bike…"
Having spent a year or so on a balance bike, we were looking for a lightweight pedal bike for our 4 year old. Islabikes are built with the proportions of children in mind and are beautifully made.
Our son took under 20 minutes to transition to pedalling, which was amazing. This bike really does make it easy, as it's light and all the components have been carefully considered.
