HERO 16" Pedal Bike

From £389

The HERO 16” has been designed for children with an average inside leg measurement of 40.5-50.5cm (approx. 3.5-6 years old). Weighing just 5.7kg, the HERO’s super lightweight aluminium frame and upright riding position and slightly longer cranks make it easier for your child to manoeuvre and control with confidence, while being light enough to carry around. The premium Gates belt drive system is maintenance free so no more oily or rusty chains and is safer for inquisitive little fingers.

Less weight, more fun.

A lighter bike is easier to learn on, easier to handle and more enjoyable to ride meaning your child will be happy to ride the HERO for longer than a heavier bike. At 5.7kg the HERO is among the very lightest 16” bikes in the market.

No more chains.

Quieter, smoother and longer lasting the HERO comes with a Gates belt drive system which is maintenance-free: no oil, no grease, no rust (ever!) and safer for inquisitive fingers too.

Perfectly proportioned.

Comfort is key, which is why the geometry of the HERO 16” has been designed to put the rider in a more upright position, making it quicker and easier to learn and optimising the riding experience.

Efficient cycling.

Fitted with marginally longer cranks than comparable bikes, the HERO 16” requires fewer rotations to travel the same distance when compared to a shorter crank. This makes for a more efficient ride on the flats.

Brake levers made for small hands.

Small, easy to reach, adjustable brake levers, more manageable narrow handlebars and contoured grips means better control and improved confidence.

Carefully prepared by us.

Every one of our bikes is inspected by our UK based trained mechanics who will assemble and tune your bike before it's sent to you. When it arrives, some simple assembly will be required.

Frequently Asked Questions

The correct seat height should have the child sitting on the Airo’s seat, with feet flat on the ground, with a slight bend in the knees. For long-distance striding on smooth surfaces, you can raise this slightly. For obstacles, tricks, and off-road riding, the saddle should be adjusted for slightly more bend in the knees.

Quality is important to us, that’s why we use proper rubber tyres for a super smooth riding experience (rather than cheap solid foam tyres which make for an uncomfortable ride).

Yes, the mud guard and kickstand comes pre-fitted. The only exception is the front mudguard which requires attaching through the front bolt. Please see the assembly video for more information.

The HERO's gates belt drive system is built to last far longer than a chain system. The benefit of a belt system is that there is no oil or grease needed so your little ones won't get mucky hands!
