Childrens’ bike brand Islabikes has announced the release of a new, high-end Pro Series range, aimed at youth racers.
All Pro Series bikes feature custom handlebars, chainsets, pedals, grips, saddles and seatposts to provide a true child-specific fit. These components have been optimised to work together as a package, ensuring optimum reach, stand-over and Q-Factor.
The Islabikes Pro Series range will feature four different model families covering Starter Bikes, Cyclocross, Cross Country Mountain Biking and Mixed Terrain Riding.
Islabikes founder Isla Rowntree says: “Every year we attend numerous races and cycling festivals with our bikes and we have long been in awe of the speed and skill levels of some of the young riders. I wanted to deliver a range of even lighter, higher specification, performance focused Islabikes with all the benefits of our holistic design approach for those whose lives revolve around youth cycling competition.
"We have designed full carbon forks that perfectly match the geometry of each bicycle size, low Q factor cranks, our own superlight and grippy cyclocross tyres and sprinkled each bike with titanium and aluminium finishing bits to shave off the last bit of weight. These are serious bikes for children who are serious about their cycling. I hope we see some of their names crop up as Olympians in the future.”
The range retails at £1599.99 for the Luath, £1499.99 for the Creig, £999.99 for the Beinn 20 and £799.99 for the Cnoc.
