Malvern Star Mx20 Superlight 20 inch Kids Bike

If you wish to encourage the kids away from video games and TV, sport and cycling can be just the thing, But if the only bike available is heavy and doesn't work well, it may be more difficult.

If you prefer to ride with the kids, then a light easy bike will allow you to explore further from home. Many of us have been disappointed in the past over the weight of most kids bikes. They can be almost as heavy as your own bike. Certainly makes it less enjoyable for the kids, as we are generally trying to entice them outdoors.

Lightweight bikes are designed to be easier to pedal. They achieve this with a combination of lighter weight and less rolling resistance. The bikes are simply easier to ride. Also because they can get up to a higher speed very quickly, it is easier to get their balance, so they will probably get off training wheels earlier, which makes a huge difference to the ease of pedalling. Of course, that one depends on their confidence, not just the bike.

The Mx20 SL has tyres with reduced rolling resistance, the tyres are not as knobby, and the casing is a higher quality. This means that the bike requires less effort to pedal. Combined with this is the lower weight. They certainly are light, and when you watch the kids riding, they immediately notice the difference the confidence increases (hopefully the colour is right, though).

We have some test ride facilities within the shop, and the smiles are definitely bigger, and the enthusiasm greater. We invite you to bring the kids and let them try a few different bikes, you will be able to see for yourself how much more they enjoy riding.

The weight reduction is brought about by using higher quality lighter components. Most higher quality kids bikes now have aluminium frames, but these bikes also have most components made of aluminium. The additional cost is not as great as you may expect, generally about $70.
