Product Description

Starting early is the key to teaching your young ones the joys of bicycle life, and there's no better way to do so than with our Hotwalk. Designed for less crashes and more smiles, the Hotwalk makes learning to ride a bike as easy as can be.

With no pedals or gears, it's designed to help your little ripper find their balance by making it as easy as possible to put their feet down. In fact, scooting around with their feet is how the bike moves (outside of gravity), so they'll get used to the feeling of riding without much of the risk. And with a redesigned frame, the new Hotwalk features a lower standover height to accommodate younger riders, as well as a longer wheelbase for more stable scooting.

Even better for you, there isn't much that can break should the bike hit the deck on the pump track, so there's less maintenance then with a "traditional" bike—like airless tyres that'll never go flat. That's right, you get parental hero status, and they have the time of their lives while learning to ride. Win-win.

Key Features:

  • Durable and tough, the A1 Premium aluminium walking frame is designed specifically for little ones to scoot around safely.
  • The 12-inch alloy wheels are not only light, but durable enough to take plenty of abuse.
  • The Airless Rhythm Lite Sport tyres will never go flat, allowing your little ripper to scoot around on- and off-road worry-free.
  • Occasionally, without notice, manufacturers change product design and/or specifications.

    Kids Bike Guide

    Which bike is best for my child?

    The best kids' bike is one that fits properly - a bike that is too big or too small will be hard to ride and may put your child off cycling. See our Kids' Bike Size Guide for more info on kids' bike sizing. While it may seem like a good idea to buy a bike that your child will ‘grow into', if it is too big it may discourage them from riding. Similarly, a heavy bike is hard to ride, especially for young children. A correctly sized lightweight bike will give your kids the best start on their cycling journey.


    Balance Bikes

    A balance bike is the simplest type of bike. With no pedals, gears or even brakes (on some models) to worry about, balancing skills are easily learned. Balance bikes generally have 10” or 12” wheels and are suitable for children aged one to four years. Some balance bikes have larger 14” wheels for children up to six years old.

    Pedal Bikes

    Once children have learned how to balance, the step up to a pedal bike is easy. Some pedal bikes come with removable stabilizers. While stabilizers are the traditional way of learning to ride a bike, many cycling instructors will advise you to avoid using them. There is good reason for this because, while stabilizers allow your child to learn how to pedal and brake, they make it harder for them to learn how to balance later on.

    Pedal bikes are all fitted with brakes. Learning to stop is the next most important skill to learn after balance, so it is a good idea to make sure your kids can do this before you let them pedal away. Larger pedal bikes may also have a number of gears to help them up the hills.

    Wheel Size

    For the most part kids bike sizing is based on wheel size. Bikes with a 10” or 12” wheel diameter are best for 2 - 4 year olds and include both pedal and balance bikes. Kids aged 4 - 6 years will find the best fit on a 14” – 18” bike. These bikes have a simple single speed drivetrain with easy to use brakes and kid friendly components. Moving up to kids bikes with 20” wheels you will start to find geared drivetrains with easy to ride mountain bike style components.

    Junior bikes, for older kids, have larger 24” wheels which are more like scaled down adult bikes. Some kids bike brands, like Frog, also offer different frame sizes within specific wheel sizes. See the kids bike size tab for more comprehensive sizing info on this bike.

    How to get the right fit

    Once you have chosen the correct size bike using the kids bike size tab information on the product page there are a couple of adjustments that you can make to get the perfect fit for your child.

    Saddle Height

    Set the saddle height so that they can put both feet flat on the ground. This will give them the confidence to stop and start whenever they like and reduce the chances of them falling off. As they grow, move the saddle up to maintain the perfect fit. Once they have mastered the skills of balancing, pedalling, braking, and can steer their bike just where they want it to go, you can move the saddle up for a more efficient pedalling position. See our saddle height guide for more information.

    Frog Bikes

    Frog size their bikes in a unique and easy to read way. The name of the bike is a recommended maximum inside leg measurement.

    For example, a Frog 52 will suit a child with an inside leg measurement of no smaller than 52cm(20"). This ensures that the bike is not too big to ride. 

    Get the right fit - Adjust the saddle

    Brake Reach

    It is important that your child can reach the brakes easily without having to stretch their hands or unhook their thumb from the handle bars. It is easy to adjust the reach of the brake levers and move them closer to the handlebars allowing them to brake more easily. Most brake levers have a small screw that moves the brake lever closer to the bars, all you need is a small screwdriver or allen key to do this. Some premium kids' bikes even have a tool free reach adjustment nob. You may also need to adjust the brake cable tension with the barrel to get the brakes working optimally for your child.

    Get the right fit - Adjust the brake reach

    Handlebar Height

    While this is less important than saddle height, you can also adjust the handlebar height on kids' bikes. This is easily done by repositioning the spacers (on a A-headset) or by loosening the expander bolt and repositioning the stem before retightening (on a quill stem). Start with the stem in its lowest position then move it higher it as they grow to maintain the ideal riding position.

    Get the right fit - Adjust the handlebar height

    Bike Weight

    After sizing, weight has the biggest impact on your child's enjoyment while cycling. To understand why, remember that an adult bike can weigh around 20% of your body weight. Most kid's bikes can weigh up to a hefty 50% of their weight. Imagine strapping concrete blocks to your pedals and start riding, it wouldn't be a nice experience generally speaking. The more you spend on a kid's bike, the lighter it will be. This means the bike is easier to handle and manoeuvre, and that translates directly into fun and enjoyment.
