With weight savings and efficiency levels never seen before on a child's bike, the E-450 design was given a 10 out of 10 by Bicycling Australia Magazine.
The ergonomic design ensures a great fit and superb handling, our custom sized and shaped V-bars are made for kids - considering shoulder width, riding position, safety and comfort.
At the heart of every ByK Bike is a well designed frame and weighing just 1.2kg our lightweight frame is easier to ride adn manoeuvre. The ergonomic design ensures a great fit and superb handling, your child will have a light and easy bike to ride. Our custom sized and shaped V-bars is another unique design - by considering shoulder width, riding position, safety and comfort our handlebars are made for kids.
With lightweight alloy wheels, we've made pedalling easier - our taller, more efficient wheel sizing has a dynamic advantage that other bikes can't match. And like the professionals, we've added radial spokes on the front wheel. Our smooth, faster-rolling tyres don't wear little legs out so quickly - the pattern is easy rolling and very robust.
To make a children's bike safe, the rider needs to be able to brake efficiently and confidently. 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.
