Santa’s redundancies will be easier this year, and cycling parents’ wallets: Special Kids Bike Released – The 2.1kg Special Hotwok Reserve bike costs £ 999
Special technology took the same technology from road bikes with its best performance and used it on children’s bikes: “We have created something that two year old boys have dreamed of until now.”
“When it comes to engineering, we used the same team we relied on to build bikes like the Dormac SL7,” Special said. “We speak precisely at every touch point to create the final first ride.”

The special hotwalk used in the brand’s road bikes and MTPs is made from carbon FACT 9r carbon.
It’s not just a carbon frame: it has a carbon fork, wheels, handlebar and seat post. A child with a low friction zone has a geometric saddle, with 38 percent small diameter handles with grip ends, which “is designed to easily support the bike while resting on the floor between warm laps” says the special.
In particular, children deserve bikes that are light, responsive and easy to maneuver. Since weight, stiffness and shock absorption are all factors in this unique ride quality, this lightening of a bike means that everything from materials to performance must be reconsidered: “We made sure that lightweight tire casing, like carbon wheels and rhythm light tires, is possible. ”
Special says it started as a sketch: “If road cyclists ride carbon bikes for speed and endurance, so do children. If mountain motorists need less friction pads on rough roads, kids do too. When the designers saw the sketch coming into a carbon mold, it became clear: it was so much fun to pass up this ridiculously small, completely unique project. ”
When it comes to testing, the specialist says it raises the bar: “Since no one has ever done anything like this before, there is no way to test the safety of a bike of this size. So, we created a completely new test to meet the 40 pound weight estimate, ensuring your child has the best quality, safest ride – just like the rest.
“We have developed the first ride for a lifetime. At the end of the day, we did this for them. ”
The special hotwack is only available in a size that fits riders up to 35in / 88cm and in the 40lb / 18.1kg weight range.
