Equipped with a front suspension, good sized wheels and a comfortable and stable frame, these 20″ or 24″ electric mountain bike will put your child at ease when riding off-road and let him learn easily how to use the electric assistance.

these bikes are equipped with a 400Wh battery (24inches) and a 250Wh (20inches) allowing them to ride up to 25 km/hour (VS 25 for adult bikes). This battery size compared to your kids weight gives a great autonomy for half and full day tours To each his own electric bike, you can embark with your family on beautiful routes in search of the peaks.

Frequently Asked Questions

Yes. Unlike motorbikes, an e-bike is still a bike. The engine accompanies the movement of the legs but does not replace it.

Our smallest kids ebikes are for age 5 or 1m15 height. For even smaller kids, you can rent electric balance bikes 16″ or ride with a suspended trailer for kids age 1 to 5. For grown-ups, the only limit is the one you set to yourself ;)

It is highly recommended to book. During summer and week-ends, it is highly recommand to book 1 week ahead of tome in order to get a bike and one that is appropriate to your height. Apart from that time, it is necessary to book because we only open on demand.
