Product description

This is our new Trail version of the classic Belter 16. Loaded with Ritchey parts and some exclusive 16" Maxxis Maxx Daddy tyres - now your kid can shred the muddy stuff in style. At a little over 5.5kgs the Belter sets the standard. It's worth bearing in mind that every kilo on a 3 year olds' bike is the equivalent of 4 or 5 on an adult bike. At 5kgs lighter than most 16" bikes, that's a big difference to a child.


It's not just the weight however, everything is designed low rolling resistance. The high thread count high psi tyres, the cartridge bearing hubs and even bespoke full bearing aluminium pedals all play a part. But it is the belt drive that steals the show, a belt will never stretch like a chain, it'll never be gunked up by dirt and grease and it will be as good the day your kid has finished with it as the day they first rode it and dad doesn't have to worry about maintaining it.

i stared in awe at this bike for half an hour

The best engineered and lightest bike of its size. The boy is far to young to appreciate it, this will be the hand-me-down that no one complains about. Am struggling for training stabilisers though
