Product Details

Team SKY Frog 52 Kids Bike

The Team SKY Frog 52 is the Frog 52 dressed up in the colours and livery of Britain's (and arguably, the world's) most high-profile cycling team, Sky.

Like the Frog 55, the Team SKY Frog 52 is an easier rolling, lighter weight 20 inch wheel kids' bike. However, with its slightly smaller frame, the Frog 52 would be a safer option if your 5 or 6 year old can't comfortably clear a Frog 55 top tube.

Offering different sizing options - even when the bikes have the same wheel size - is a perfect illustration of the extra care taken by Frog to ensure their bikes fit better than their rivals' who offer their 20-inch wheel bikes in just one frame size.

Why this bike is great
The Team SKY Frog 52 is an easier rolling, lighter weight 20 inch-wheel kids' bike, intelligently designed to make it easier for children from 5-6 year old to to enjoy cycling to the max.

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 to help ensure your child(ren) has the best possible start to biking.

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 on QR alloy wheels
The Team SKY Frog 52 comes with quick release aluminium wheels - no need to carry a spanner to fit or remove them. These wheels are shod with good quality Kenda 20 x 1.5 inch hybrid tyres which will be easier rolling than the 20 x 2 inch knobbly mountain bike tyres you'll find on most of their competitors' bikes. Skinnier tyres make a Frog bike easier to get up to speed 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.

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 52 is recommended for children with a minimum inside leg measurement of 52cm (20.5 inches). This corresponds with other manufacturers' 20 inch wheel kids' road bikes, so the Team SKY Frog 52 would make a great present for children from around 5/6 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 8 or 9 years old.

  • Lightweight aluminium alloy frame (10 inch seat tube) and fork.
  • Quick release (no need to carry a spanner to change a tube) aluminium wheels.
  • Easy to use high quality Shimano Alivio Rapidfire Plus 8-speed gear shifter and Acera rear derailleur.
  • While their competitors make do with entry level Shimano Tourney gearing, Frog hybrid bikes come with mid-range Shimano Alivio/Acera, frequently spec'd on £500-£600 adult bikes.
  • This single chainring, single shifter, single derailleur Shimano transmission makes gear shifting simple for learner riders.
  • The alloy cranks are a child-friendly short (114mm) length with a 32t chainring.
  • The sealed bottom bracket ensures these cranks spin smoothly.
  • The 46cm alloy handlebar is fitted with narrow grips for smaller hands.
  • This bar is fitted to a short 38mm alloy stem to keep it within easy reach.
  • Tektro alloy V-brakes with alloy Junior levers are such excellent stoppers, they are a common sight on good quality £300-£400 adult bikes.
  • Being a British company, Frog know it makes sense to supply their bikes with front and rear mudguards.
  • Minimum recommended inside leg measurement to the floor: 52cm.
  • Approximate age range: from 5/6 to 8/9 year old.
  • Manufacturer's published weight: 8.8kg.

This formula of creating lighter weight, more intelligently designed kids' bikes has obviously been a success with our customers because within a year of their launch, Frog bikes have firmly established themselves as our best selling children's bikes.
