Stop Easy innovation: a patented braking system designed for children.
More accessible brakes and a more comfortable grip are the main benefits of our Stop Easy system. For more natural movement, the brake lever is pressed parallel to the handlebars. Whilst progressive, this innovative brake lever also provides 30% more braking power compared to a conventional brake lever. An innovation from our B'Twin team, loved by both parents and children.
Frame material and shape
We had to choose aluminium for this bike's frame because we wanted to make it as light as possible. It weighs 960 g. The aluminium also makes it rustproof: even when exposed to a harsh environment (damp, sand) it won't rust.
Its shape is slightly shorter than our other 16" models: the bike is more responsive while offering an upright position. A good balance between comfort and agility to support budding young cyclists
Wheels / tyres
These tyres are equipped with an inner tube (inflatable). Their shape gives them a good grip on everyday terrain (paths, grass, etc.).
Brake efficiently thanks to the two V-brake brake pads.
These brakes are composed of callipers that exert more or less pressure on the rim to slow or stop the rotation of the wheels.
Can stabilisers be added?
Yes, if your child needs them. Our 16" B'Twin stabilisers are compatible with all our bikes in this size. They are practical and can be fitted without tools.
What about comfort?
We've carefully considered children's build: the width of the handlebars and the diameter of the grips are designed for their small hands. The foam saddle provides a comfortable seat.
The bike that grows with your child!
The saddle is height-adjustable to adapt as your child grows.
The height of the saddle can be set between 47.8 and 60.6 cm.
What is a guard for?
To prevent children from putting their fingers where they shouldn't, the mechanical elements of the drive train (crank, chain, freewheel, etc.) are surrounded by the guard. It also prevents the risk of catching laces and getting clothes dirty.
The decorations are set into the plastic of the chain guard for greater durability.
What inspired this design?
For the racing version, our designer has chosen red, which instantly makes you think of race cars. The graphics leave plenty up to your imagination. They depict the inside of a car to get young riders buzzing with enthusiasm! For the city model, he has opted for a "chic" blue set off with a touch of "Molitor" yellow (like the iconic Parisian swimming pool!). The graphics make you think of a famous scooter brand. It's a look that will appeal to kids of all ages!
