Expert Review

By Islabikes’ own proclamation, their kid-specific bicycles are built with obsessive attention to detail, from mini-sized brake levers to gear ratios selected to fit the age of the rider. The company’s passion to produce a superbly designed bike for children shines in every model, like the large Beinn 20. Lightweight 7005 T6 aluminum is used to build a complete bike weighing less than 18 pounds, with frame geometry engineered specifically to fit the smaller proportions of half-pint pilots. The majority of this bikes aluminum components are actually scaled down versions of adult models to accommodate the shorter reach of kids.

The 7-speed SRAM X4 gear cluster is controlled by an easy to operate twist-grip shifter, and light action brake levers control grippy V brakes so your kid can be safe and stop when they need to. The Beinn sports super light wheels, clinging to the bike with grown-up bike quick release levers, and looped with Kenda hybrid tires suitable for a range of tread conditions. Islabikes frames are designed to be closer to the ground for better handling, and a great-riding bike makes for a happy kid. The Beinn also has a chameleon-like ability to accommodate specific riding styles with just a simple tire change.Rating: 5/5
