Black Mountain Bikes have a really clever “growing frame” which means that when your child outgrows the original frame size you can adjust the frame and the gearing to make it last much longer.
This means you get at least two bikes for your money and don’t have the hassle of having to sort out a new bike.
The KAPĒL is their 18″ wheel offering, but taller children may want to move straight onto the 20″ wheel HUTTØ to get maximum usage.
Most 18″ wheel bike are single speed, meaning they don’t have gears. The KAPĒL is one of the exceptions, making it ideal for those who regularly ride hills. Do remember that not all children are ready to start using gears at this age.
Another clever feature about these bikes is the fact that they can start out in balance bike mode if needed (you do need to buy an additional balance bike convertor kit) so your child can progress from learning to balance through to pedalling all without you needing to buy a new bike.
