We love reading about innovations in the cycling industry, but children’s bikes don’t often make the list. This time they did.
Grow, by Orbea, is a new line of bikes designed to grow along with your kids. With a frame that expands, Grow bikes should fit children for 3-5 years after purchase. The price for these bicycles ranges between $240-$330 (based on my Euro ->USD calculation). Grow consists of four models sized for children ages 1.5 to 9 years old.
Details and a video after the break…
Along with the expandable frame, the handlebars and seat post raise to accommodate for growth, featured in the picture to the left.
The four models are the Grow 0 for ages 1.5-4 (which doesn’t expand but is pretty stylish in itself), the Grow 1 for ages 2-5 years (right in the above image), the Grow 2 1v for ages 4-9 years (single speed not featured in above image), and the Grow 2 7v for ages 4-9 years (the left and center bike in the above image).
Word is they’re working on bringing these to the U.S., more on that as it develops.
It’s designed by Alex Fernandez Camps, an Industrial designer from Barcelona, who put together this video of the bikes in action. Enjoy:
