DESIGN PHILOSOPHIES4 Design Philosophies form the cornerstone of our bicycle range. These influence everything, from the use of materials and the components on the bike, to the function and ride characteristics. Our 4 Design Philosophies are:
1. DESIGNED TO BE SAFE
2. DESIGNED TO FIT
- Low standover height keeps kids in control when starting and stopping.
- Lower centre of gravity provides stability.
- We design our frames and components to be able to adjust to fit your child as they grow.
3. DESIGNED TO PERFORM
4. DESIGNED TO BE EFFICIENT
The lighter the bike, the easier it is to start moving, manoeuvre, and maintain speed without wasting energy. In order to create truly lightweight kids' bikes, we use a lightweight alloy in the frame and fork, creating an agile and efficient foundation. But this is just the start. We shed further weight by using alloy in our hubs, rims, handlebars and stem. The result is a kid's bike which is not only designed for efficiency using a weight-saving approach commonly found on adult bikes, but also designed for fun.
A bike's weight, fit and handling play a direct role in learning to ride with confidence. By optimising each element, your child can learn safely and enjoy the journey.
Each bicycle in our range benefits from a number of technologies, turning our 4 Design Philosophies into the final product.
Energy Efficient Design
How do you make a bike easier to ride? To achieve this in our Neo bikes, we looked at several factors:
Weight - The lighter the bike, the easier it becomes to start moving, maintain speed, and stop. In addition to alloy frames and forks, we select lightweight alloy components as well.
Fit - If the bike doesn’t fit well, your child exerts extra energy to compensate. We select narrow handlebars to align properly with the shoulder width and arm length of children. Creating the optimal riding position allows for comfortable riding and efficient pedaling.
Neo+ and Neo Disc+
Our latest season reflects a range of ‘plusses’ as we continue to enhance and improve the popular Neo range. Updated frames, new technologies, and a new look, all focused around our core 4 Philosophies. The Neo+ concept stems from two primary objectives, which helped define our path towards launching our latest range:
