The ultimate MTB balance bike- Kids Ride Shotgun Dirt Hero
Do you dream of riding off-road with your toddler? Are they fascinated by riding berms and bumps? The Kids Ride Shotgun Dirt Hero balance bike is the ultimate first bike for kids who dream of becoming the next MTB pro.
The chunky tyres and frame geometry inspire confidence when the trails get rough and the Magura disk brake gets your sprog skidding and controlling their speed before pedals are involved - and if you buy this on the run-up to Christmas Kids Ride Shotgun are throwing in a brake for free with every bike purchased!
For more details, take a look at our Kids Ride Shotgun Dirt Hero review.
Can't get enough of mountain biking? Does your sprog want to be outside riding their bike or practicing getting air every waking moment of the day?
Well, a ramp is just the thing to become the coolest kid on the street instantly! It might take A LOT of wrapping paper, but Decathlon stocks a range of ramps for all budgets.
Kids Ride Shotgun seat
Is your sprog not quite old enough to be hitting the trails on their own bike, but wanting to get involved regardless?
The Kids Ride Shotgun seat is the perfect way to get your little ones hooked on feeling the wind in their hair and the flow of a Mountain Bike trail.
Buying this for a family member or friend’s kid could make you the coolest aunt or uncle around! Read our Kids Ride Shotgun Seat review - our reviewer loved wooshing around the berms of the Hope Line at Gisburn Forest, with cries of “Lean Dad, Lean!”.
Perhaps you're more into experiences and want to invest in your sprog's enjoyment and development on their Mountain Bike. Why not consider buying them a voucher for a coaching session or kids MTB club?
We’d recommend you check in with your local bike shop, cycling club, or trail center to find a reputable coach/guide. Look out for holiday camps, 1:1 coaching, or regular bike club sessions.
Black Mountain is really taking the kids bike market by storm with their "growing bikes".
They range in size from the 14" PINTO through to the 20" HÜTTO and the clever expanding frame allows your child to start on larger wheels earlier than with other bike brands, making it easier to roll over obstacles!
The two smaller models start in balance bike mode and convert into pedal bikes when your child is ready.
The two larger models come equipped with 7 speed SRAM Twist shift for hills.
Price range: £499 - £699
