Belter 16 - Factory Second

NEXT LEVEL, EVERY DAY

Rated 4.9 out of 5
Based on 215 reviews

SUPER STABLE, LIGHTWEIGHT, FREE ROLLING BIKE FOR RAPID PROGRESSION AND EVERY DAY ADVENTURES. THE WORLD’S BEST SELLING BELT DRIVE BICYCLE. 

Performance. Practicality. Proven.

An ultra-lightweight belt drive, running on the best-in-class wheels, makes sure pedalling is always a breeze for those little legs - always. No grease means there's never any grime building up to make their life harder (as well as no oily stains to make your life harder).  

The drive train is aluminium too, so there are no rusty chainrings to replace. And stretch or wear? These belts last as timing belts in car engines - you're safe.

So that’s free rolling, clean, quiet, durable, rust-free, low maintenance. Low cost of ownership, no discernible loss of performance and no corrosion to hurt resale value. If only it had legendary geometry and market leading finishing kit... Is it any wonder that the Belter 16 reinvented the first bike?

A Real Bike, Not a Toy

We gave our daughter the Belter 16 for her 4th birthday. She's 6 now and still loving it. We are a bike commuting family, so we needed her first pedal bike to be something easy to ride to build her confidence. That's how we justified the cost of this bike. We also have a younger daughter to pass it on to when she outgrows it. She had been riding a balance bike since age 2. We took off the pedals at first to let her transition to the bigger frame and get used to the hand brakes. She probably would have fit a 14 better, but it's a big investment and we wanted some longevity! After a couple weeks on her tip toes riding like a balance bike, we put the pedals back on. At first, she needed help getting going, but was soon biking completely independently, and even managed a 3 km commute to preschool most days! It's a beautiful, well built bike that turns a lot of heads! We'll definitely buy the next size up when she outgrows this one and passes it down to her little sister.

It took 1 day

My daughter use to drive on balance bike last year, this year we bought ER. We went to the straight and flat area, she sat on it and drove. As simple as that. She is still a bit to short, but she feels it already. One cons (for this size and also for 24 inches, which we bought for our older daughter) - there is literally NO bicycle stand available on local market. Such expensive bikes must lay on the ground.

A piece of a bicycle mastercraft. However a riding position could be improved.

Top bike for kids

The bike is really light compared with other brands and you can feel the quality. I had a little issue after the delivery but the after sales service was perfect!

What an amazing bike

My 4-year-old had just got the hang of cycling without stabilisers and I got her this to progress to. Wow, such a great bike, it's made cycling so much easier that her progression has lept on and she is flying now. We go out riding together now side by side and she covered about two miles on only her third time out on the Belter.

From Trek Pre Caliber

My five-year-old son was tooling around on a 20 inch trek pre-caliber, which was too big for him. His first ride on the belter was hilarious. He could barely control it. It was so much lighter and twitchy. It took him about 15 minutes before he was ripping around. What an improvement. He’s climbing little bumps and hills in our neighborhood that nearly caused tears before. Worth every penny.

Awesome bike

Simply the best bike for kids, wish I had one of these when I was growing up... Lightweight, high quality, easy to maintain, great look. The "factory second" had a couple of minor blemishes (way less than my son would add in about a month).
