Mainstream bike manufacturers aren’t always the best people when it comes to making children’s bikes but Cube can match even specialist firms with its superb little wheelers.
Cube Cubie 120 push bike – £115.00
Available in two colours — perfect for boys or girls — the Cubie is one of the cutest little balance bikes around. Made from lightweight 6061 aluminium and rolling on 12in aluminium wheels, it’s been designed to be easy for little bodies to manoeuvre. Cube has also gone to extra care making sure there are no sharp edges or corners to cause injury. The Cubie might be a simple design but it features high-quality kit including Kenda tyres, a Scape saddle with built-in carrying handle, and two seatposts — short and long — so your child can keep enjoying it as they grow.
As a first pedal bike, the Kid 160 is an incredibly exciting option — in fact it looks just like a junior BMX bike. The lightweight aluminium frame is fitted with a high tensile steel fork for comfort, with high-quality components such as an aluminium cantilever brake at the front, coaster brake at the rear, 16in aluminum wheels and Kenda tyres. A full-length chainguard stops prevents little fingers getting oily, and a padded surround at the stem will cushion any accidents. Available in three fantastic colours, Cube also includes a safety package of hi-viz flag, bell and spoke reflectors.
Moving up to more serious cycling, the Kid 200 range has a choice of two models. The multi-discipline Kid 200 bike comes with another premium lightweight aluminium frame and 20in aluminium wheels, but now young riders have the chance to enjoy Shimano RevoShift / Tourney 7-speed gearing. And because they’ll be riding quicker, there are also high-powered V-brakes with size-specific levers and a special power modulator to keep things under control. The Kidd 200 Street — available in either boys’ or girls’ step-through frame shapes — replaces the derailleur gears with a 3-speed hub gear and fits mudguards, a rear rack, a chainguard and a kickstand for ultimate practicality with the final, superb bonus of a dynamo light system front and back.

The bikes roll on 24in aluminium wheels, with power modulated V-brakes handling stopping duties. If urban riding is your child’s thing, the Kid 240 Street has a step-through frame for girls or a compact frame for boys, and comes with mudguards, rear rack, kickstand, super-safe battery-free dynamo light system, and a Suntour suspension fork for comfort.
