Team Sky and Frog Bikes have teamed up for a range of kids' bikes and accessories.
Promising lightweight frames, slim grip brakes, narrow handlebars and quality componentry, the duo say the intention was to work together to create a practical attractive proposition for children and their parents to inspire them to get into the saddle.
The Team Sky Kids’ Bike range is suitable for children aged between 2 and 14 and includes a balance bike, first pedal bike and a variety of sizes in hybrid and road bikes. The blurb says that from their first moments on a balance bike to their first race, the range gives all children the opportunity to learn key skills, gain confidence and have fun whilst cycling through the different developmental stages.
Each bike in the range includes typical Frog Bike features – lightweight frame and componentry designed specifically for the younger rider. The new range carries the iconic Team Sky blue line.
The range will be available through independent cycle stores this autumn, priced from £100 to £450.

Here's a round of quotes from the involved parties:
Carsten Jeppesen, Head of Technical Operations at Team Sky, said: “As experts in producing and developing kids’ bikes, Frog Bikes has created an impressive range, which is superbly designed for young riders, and is continually striving to create the very best lightweight bikes. Frog share our determination to give children the best opportunity to enjoy cycling. We are delighted that Frog is making our range of children’s lightweight bikes, and hope that this range will encourage more children to enjoy cycling, at all levels.”
Head of Brand at Team Sky Joel Keoghan explained: “From the start of Team Sky one of our main ambitions was to help inspire more people, of all ages and abilities, to get on their bikes and enjoy cycling. The exciting next step for us is to work closely with Frog to help create the new range of Team Sky Kids’ Bikes to encourage the next generation of cyclists to get out and enjoy the freedom of cycling. The precision and rigor that goes into producing each Frog Bike is very impressive and is one of the main reasons we decided to join forces with them. As a team, we’re known for our dedication in leaving nothing to chance and looking for every small improvement, so it’s important that we work with likeminded partners who share the same principles.”
Jerry Lawson of Frog Bikes added: "Frog Bikes is dedicated to making cycling fun and accessible for children of all ages, so we're over the moon to be collaborating with Team Sky. With our shared passion for performance, design and a love of cycling, we are excited to launch this brand new range of high-quality and lightweight kids' bikes to make cycling more fun for children."
