Frog 48 Kids' Bike - Team Sky

This is the Frog 48 dressed up in the colours and livery of Britain's (and arguably, the world's) most high-profile cycling team, Sky.

Frog Video
Frog's passion for making better bikes for kids shines through in this video.

 

Why this bike is great
The Team SKY Frog 48 is an easier rolling, lighter weight 16 inch-wheel kids' bike, intelligently designed to make it easier for children as young as 4-5 year old to get maximum pleasure from cycling.

Alloy frame
Like most better-quality adult bikes, Frog bikes are built with aluminium frames and (mostly) aluminium parts to keep the weight to a minimum. That way your child(ren) will experience maximum joy riding one of their bikes.

Alloy components
Sure, more and more companies are making kids' bikes with alloy (rather than heavier steel) frames and alloy wheel rims. This Frog bike stands out for coming equipped with aluminium alloy forks, hubs, crankset, V-brakes, brake levers, handlebars, stem and seatpost to keep the bike's weight to a minimum.

Smooth hybrid tyres
Frog 48 comes with lightweight alloy wheels fitted with good quality Kenda 16 x 1.5 inch hybrid tyres which will be easier rolling than the 16 x 2 inch knobbly mountain bike tyres you'll find on most of their competitors' bikes. Skinnier tyres make a Frog bike easier to accelerate and hence more fun to ride.

Second pair of tyres
Having said that, if you young-one wants to get more adventurous, you'll be delighted to hear that the Frog 43 comes supplied with a second pair of knobbly mountain bike tyres. That way, a simple tyre swap will make the bike fit for dirt tracks and trail centres.

Locking Headset
This limits handlebar rotation to make it easier for learner riders.

Sizing
Another example of Frog's original approach: rather than naming their kids' bikes by wheel size, Frog size their bikes by inside leg measurement. Hence the Team SKY Frog 48 is recommended for children with a minimum inside leg measurement of 48cm (19 inches). This corresponds with other manufacturers' 16 inch wheel kids' road bikes, so the Frog 48 would make a great present for children from around 4 years old. It comes with a long aluminium seatpost with a quick release seat binder to make it easy to adjust the saddle as the child grows all the way up to around 6 or 7. It comes with a long aluminium seatpost with a quick release seat binder to make it easy to adjust the saddle as the child grows all the way up to 7 or 8 years old.

  • The 44cm alloy handlebar is fitted with narrow grips for smaller hands.
  • These bars are fitted to a short 35mm alloy stem to keep them within easy reach.

  • Minimum recommended inside leg measurement to the floor: 48cm.
  • Approximate age range: from 4-5 to 7-8 year old.
  • Manufacturer's published weight: 6.9kg.
