Built to last
LIKEaBIKEs range from balance bikes for toddlers, the Mini, to the Maxi for older children and small adults. From 2 to 5 years, LIKEaBIKE Jumper is the ultimate aluminium balance bike - lightweight and stylish with unmatched handling, like a miniature mountain bike.
LIKEaBIKEs are built to withstand any amount of rough and tumble. Each one is completely hand-built by a single highly-skilled engineer. The wooden bikes use a special European Marine Plywood which is much more expensive than the low-grade plywood chosen by other makers. Marine plywood is used in the manufacture of yachts and power-boats. It is extremely durable and strong, resistant to warping and has consistent mechanical properties. There is a vast difference between Chinese Marine Plywood and European, this is reflected in the price of the inferior bikes.
Other components are made from high-grade steel, felt, textiles and rubber. Kokua insists on the best quality stainless steel fastenings available, to ensure that their wooden balance bikes are still going strong after several years!
All LIKEaBIKE balance bikes have high quality branded tyres and the seats are hand-made using 100% organic cotton. They undergo strict testing to ensure there are no harmful chemicals present in any component.
Safety features include a unique patented steering damper that stops your child turning the handlebar too far, preventing jack-knifing accidents and trapped fingers.
