Frog 44 is now back in stock.
Great value all-aluminium bike has very lightweight high quality frame and forks. Suitable for riders aged 4-5 years old with a minimum inside leg of 44cm.
We have reduced the weight of this model by using smaller tube diameters and thinner tube walls. The Frog 44 weighs only 6.39kg. Along with this weight saving, we have lowered the bottom bracket to achieve a more ergonomic position on the bike.
One of the biggest temptations is to buy a bike your child will ‘grow into’. However, this is likely to have the opposite effect and put your child off bikes and cycling altogether! This new frame has a longer steerer tube which includes a 10mm spacer ontop of the stem. This allows room to move the handlebars into a higher position as they grow.
Another common mistake is to purchase a budget bike but these models are often as heavy as the child and leads to tears and frustration at not being able to cycle. Our lightweight bikes are a great confidence booster and can also be used as a balance bike for a taller child by removing the pedals.

HOW FROG BIKES STARTED
Jerry & Shelley Lawson founded Frog Bikes in 2013. It was a fruitless bike hunt for their own two children that inspired them to leave their corporate careers behind and create bikes just for kids.
As they set about creating quality, lightweight & affordable kids’ bikes Frog Bikes was born. Five years down the line and Frog’s child-centred approach has earned them global accolade; industry awards for innovation and design, an award-winning factory, around 1,800 retailers worldwide and thriving partnerships.
Re-Designing The Kids Bike
Together with Brunel University & renowned bicycle engineer Dimitris Katsanis (of Team GB Olympic fame); we have reformed the thinking behind children’s bike design
All of our bikes are designed with the child in mind. We continually modify our frames and components in collaboration with sports scientists at the Brunel University.
As our Head of R&D, Dr Tom Korff explains:
“Our bikes are not scaled down adult bikes, as children are not miniature adults. At Frog, we put the child into the centre and design our bikes around the child’s unique anatomy and his/her unique needs”.
Everything from the bike geometry to the quality componentry has been expertly designed and selected to make a child’s journey as comfortable and enjoyable as possible. Features such as adjustable brakes and our handlebar stem add-on provide room for growth, whilst the shorter cranks, scaled down handlebars and easy to reach brake levers assist comfort so they can travel further and faster
Supporting Local Business
We have partnered with select independent retailers to help deliver a professional and quality service to all our customers. Our dealers are at the heart of everything we do and take care of everything from bike fitting, professional advice, assembly by a qualified mechanic, on-going support and servicing.
We actively support the work our stores do for the local community. Our aim is to educate communities and provide resources so little ones get riding earlier. We can provide everything from on-site support to a fleet of Frog Bikes for your little ones to try!
