Arguably Early Rider’s most rewarding bike as well as one of the hardest to develop. At a little over 5.5kgs the Belter sets the standard. It’s worth bearing in mind that every kilo on a 3 year olds’ bike is the equivalent of 4 or 5 on an adult bike. At 5kgs lighter than most 16″ bikes, that’s a big difference to a child.
It’s not just the weight however, everything is designed low rolling resistance. The high psi tyres, the cartridge bearing hubs and even bespoke full bearing aluminium pedals all play a part. But it is the belt drive that steals the show. A belt will never stretch like a chain, it’ll never be gunked up by dirt and Dad doesn’t have to worry about maintaining it.
