Woom OFF AIR 6

The woom OFF AIR 6 is a well designed quality kids mountain bike for juniors aged around 10-14 years.

It’s a very well equipped bike with quality air suspension forks and a super light aluminium frame with a low top tube for easy access, a long wheelbase and low centre of gravity for stability.

Gearing comes courtesy of a SRAM X5 system and 28t single chainring giving a broad range of 9 gears across an 11-36t cassette.

There are hydraulic disc brakes front and rear, a quality lightweight wheelset and the air suspension fork provides 90mm of travel.

The woom OFF AIR 6 comes in at a weight of just 11kg without pedals.

woom OFF 5

Woom have taken their fastidious approach to kids bike building and created a range of high quality mountain bikes for those in the market for a top end product.

Here we have the woom OFF 5 which is a 24″ wheeled lightweight MTB, coming in at 8.6kg due to its specification comprising an aluminium frame matched with a quality carbon fork.

The nine speed gearing is provided by SRAM X5 shifters and rear derailleur, with an 11-34T cassette matched to a 28t chainset designed for kids so the crank arms are of an appropriate length.

Stopping won’t be a problem as the OFF 5 is fitted with Promax hydraulic discs that feature 140mm diameter disc rotors front and rear.

If the rigid fork woom OFF 5 isn’t quite what you’re looking for, this MTB can also be purchased with an air fork giving 80mm travel and which comes fitted with a 160mm front disc rotor. This version is known as the woom OFF AIR 5.

woom Original 1 PLUS

The woom 1 plus balance bike is sized for children aged between about three and a half to 5 years of age, with an inside leg measurement of between 36cm and 49cm, although all kids do vary in size so it’s best to measure them carefully.

This 14″ wheel balance bike comes with both front and rear brakes which is again quite unusual for balance bikes and helps with the step up to a pedal bike if and when the time is right.

One thing we like about the woom range is that they colour code the rear brake lever and the brake pads, so you can just tell your child to use the green brake. No confusing left/rights or front/backs.  This colour coding continues through their starter pedal bikes which is helpful.

woom Original 5

The woom 5 has a slightly more of an upright riding style than some other kids bikes and can be fitted with a kickstand and mudguards (available to buy seperately) making it good for regular commuting all year round.

However, it also has Kenda small block tyres and 8 Speed 29 T by 11-32T gearing (operated by a SRAM X4 Twist Grip) which makes it fun to ride off road too and has the gearing to get up some quite steep hills.

We’ve reviewed a couple of the smaller Woom Bikes and were incredibly impressed with the quality and attention to detail. If you think of an Austrian bike built with the same quality and attention to detail as Islabikes, then you can understand why this bike isn’t cheap, but is well worth the price tag.

woom Original 6

The woom 6 is one of the lightest 26″ wheel kids bikes available, making it easy to manoeuvre. This is worth thinking about if your child is having to lift their bike up and down steps, or if you’re lifting onto a bike rack on a regular basis.

The gearing is well suited to riding up hills with an easy gear for climbing.

We’ve reviewed several of the smaller single speed woom bikes and were very impressed with the quality and performance – they handled the daily school run all winter and still looked as good as new. Check out our woom 2 review and woom 3 review.

woom Original 4

The Austrian kids bike brand woom is a relative newcomer to the UK, with a range of very lightweight bikes that are proving popular with Cycle Sprog readers.

The woom 4 is their 20″ wheel offering, and at 7.7 kg it’s one of the lightest geared bikes on the market.

The woom 4 is a good choice for urban cycling, as you can add in an optional extra kickstand for ease of parking up when you’ve got where you want to go.

You can also fit the woom mudguards (which are available to buy separately) to prevent your child getting too much splashback when they’re cycling on raining days.

However, this isn’t just a bike for riding on road.  The woom 4 is fitted with Kenda Small block tyres, meaning you can confidently venture onto gravel and grass without any worries.

We’ve reviewed two single speed, smaller Woom Bikes and were very impressed – they did the daily school run throughout winter and looked as good as new at the end of it. Read our review of the woom 2 and the woom 3 review to find out more.

If you’re looking for a quality 20″ wheel bike with gears for general use then this bike is certainly worthy of consideration.
