Balance is key to learning to ride, but once you’re there… the urge to pedal and move faster won’t be far behind. That’s why we created the Cubie 120 – for kids who can’t wait to power themselves. A lightweight aluminium frame and fork has allowed us to build a smaller, perfectly formed bike that’s clearly a mini version of mum and dad’s bikes. The tough 6061 aluminium chassis is built to handle the rough and tumble of exploratory play, and our engineers paid particular attention to ensuring that all edges and corners are as smooth as possible to help reduce the chance of injury. A coaster brake at the rear and light, smooth rim brake at the front – with a lever designed specifically for small hands – make it safe and easy to slow down and stop, even for the most enthusiastic of youngsters. There’s a built-in rear mudguard, a Hebie Chainlooper to protect your little one’s legs from the transmission, and the saddle features an easy carry handle for those times when it all gets a bit too much and mum or dad has to carry the bike home. If there’s a better way to learn to pedal, have fun and build confidence at the same time, we don’t know what it is.
