Teaching your child to balance and ride a pedal bike for the first time can be daunting, but it doesn\u2019t have to be, as the right bicycle can make all the difference to your little one\u2019s first cycling experience.\u00a0<\/p>

A first pedal bike should be sturdy and solid, yet light enough to manoeuvre, and feel safe and comfortable to help your child gain confidence.<\/p>

Who\u2019s it for?<\/h2>

The Hornit HERO 16\u201d<\/a> is for children aged two-and-a-half to six years. There\u2019s also a slightly smaller HERO 14\u201d for children aged two and a half to four and a half years.<\/p>

Designed for an inside leg measurement of 40.5cm to 50.5cm ( or 34cm to 44cm for the 14\u201d pedal bike), the HERO 16\u201d is the perfect size for the average four- to five-year-old. Our reviewer\u2019s six-year-old could comfortably ride the 16\u201d during testing, but would likely outgrow it within a few months.<\/p>

If you\u2019re keen to get your three-year-old started on a pedal bike, the 14\u201d is the optimum size to go for.<\/p>","value":"

At first glance<\/h2>

Out of the box, it\u2019s immediately clear that the HERO 16\u201d is no ordinary pedal bike. Its sleek design and lightweight aluminium frame in bold metallic red (known as Snapper Red) makes a remarkable case for minimalism and functionality.<\/p>

From the compact saddle to the hybrid tyres, innovative belt drive, nifty pedals and progressive frame, it\u2019s evident that the weight, comfort and safety of this bike are top priorities.<\/p>

The weight of a first pedal bike is important. The lighter the bike, the more comfortable your child will feel on it and the easier it\u2019ll be to transition from a balance bike, gain confidence in tackling corners and manage undulating terrain. After comparing the weight of the HERO against the Saracen Mantra 1.6 Bike - a kids\u2019 bike within the same category, which weighs 6.4kg (excluding pedals) - the HERO won hands down.<\/p>

Assembly<\/h2>

The Hornit HERO comes in a compact box with cut-out handles making it easy to lift and transport. When it comes to assembly, the bike is relatively simple to put together, even for a newbie who knows little about bicycles. This is thanks to the comprehensive instruction booklet with plenty of infographics, plus an easy-to-follow video tutorial (you\u2019ll find a link to the video on the box itself).<\/p>

The bike is packaged well enough to protect it from dents and scratches, yet it\u2019s quick and effortless to unpack and remove the protective elements by hand, so you don\u2019t run the risk of scratching the bike with a sharp knife or scissors.<\/p>

Assembly took roughly 20 minutes, including a quick tyre pump. However, as it specifies in the instruction booklet, the bike doesn\u2019t come with the necessary tools needed for assembly which include a screwdriver, an allen key and a monkey wrench or pedal spanner for the pedals, so you\u2019ll need to have those handy. A small critique is that the pedals need to be installed with a spanner which can leave tool marks (rather than an allen key), which is a bit of a shame given the beauty of this bike.<\/p>

Additionally, the bike isn\u2019t made with quick-release skewers on the wheels. So, in the event of a puncture, you\u2019ll need to keep tools on-hand.<\/p>

The front and back wheel fitted easily and there was no brake rub on the back or front thanks to a pre-delivery check and tune by Hornit\u2019s mechanics. In combination with a quality rear hub, this means that the back wheel spins freely for ages, which translates to less energy lost when pedalling.\u00a0<\/p>

The handlebars are also straightforward to put on, albeit without a marking or line indicator which makes the bar alignment a bit of an art.<\/p>

On assembly, you may find that the pedal ground clearance is smaller than on other bikes. While it\u2019s not a major issue, this could be a little unforgiving if your child happens to keep the inside pedal down around a corner or fails to keep the pedals level.<\/p>

Stand-out features<\/h2>

The weight<\/h3>

One of the best features of the HERO is its weight. At just 5.7kg (5.4kg for the HERO 14\u201d), it\u2019s one of the lightest bikes out there, a feature too often overlooked with children\u2019s bikes. If you consider that the average four-year old weighs 18kg, a bike weighing 8 to 10kg is often too cumbersome to ride \u2013 and, surprisingly, this is the average weight of children\u2019s pedal bikes currently on the market. Learning to ride on a sleeker, lighter bike is a fast-track way to gain confidence and skills.<\/p>","value":"

Learning to ride on a sleeker, lighter bike is a fast-track way to gain confidence and skills.<\/p>"},{"meta_id":2005978,"post_id":25693,"meta_key":"_body_review_body_6_content","meta_value":"field_5ff5e32e00b35","value":"field_5ff5e32e00b35"},{"meta_id":2005979,"post_id":25693,"meta_key":"body_review_body_7_title","meta_value":"","value":""},{"meta_id":2005980,"post_id":25693,"meta_key":"_body_review_body_7_title","meta_value":"field_602a92c901c21","value":"field_602a92c901c21"},{"meta_id":2005981,"post_id":25693,"meta_key":"body_review_body_7_image_image","meta_value":"25697","value":"25697"},{"meta_id":2005982,"post_id":25693,"meta_key":"_body_review_body_7_image_image","meta_value":"field_5ff70e497941a","value":"field_5ff70e497941a"},{"meta_id":2005983,"post_id":25693,"meta_key":"body_review_body_7_image_text","meta_value":"","value":""},{"meta_id":2005984,"post_id":25693,"meta_key":"_body_review_body_7_image_text","meta_value":"field_60103b17570e9","value":"field_60103b17570e9"},{"meta_id":2005985,"post_id":25693,"meta_key":"body_review_body_7_image_width","meta_value":"full","value":"full"},{"meta_id":2005986,"post_id":25693,"meta_key":"_body_review_body_7_image_width","meta_value":"field_5ff70e497941b","value":"field_5ff70e497941b"},{"meta_id":2005987,"post_id":25693,"meta_key":"body_review_body_7_image","meta_value":"","value":""},{"meta_id":2005988,"post_id":25693,"meta_key":"_body_review_body_7_image","meta_value":"field_5ff70e4979419","value":"field_5ff70e4979419"},{"meta_id":2005989,"post_id":25693,"meta_key":"body_review_body_8_content","meta_value":"

The belt drive<\/h3>

We loved the HERO\u2019s premium gates belt drive system, which is rust-proof and clean without having to be treated with oil or grease. This makes it easier to maintain in the long run, and safe for small hands and fingers.<\/p>

The saddle<\/h3>

When it comes to comfort, the saddle is arguably one of the most important components and, in this case, it doesn\u2019t disappoint. The padded layer on the HERO saddle takes care of vibrations, while the well-proportioned design ensures optimum comfort while pedalling. A saddle that\u2019s too wide can cause chafing due to the thighs rubbing against the sides of the seat. This saddle is lightweight and easy to adjust so that feet remain flat on the ground to reduce the risk of falling.<\/p>

The frame\u00a0\u00a0<\/h3>

The streamlined aluminium frame makes the HERO 16\u201d feel less intimidating compared to chunkier models. Our mini tester rode the bike with ease and even managed to lift it onto the pavement herself.<\/p>

Our reviewer said the HERO frame was as close to perfection as she\u2019d ever seen in a child\u2019s bike and, as an avid cyclist herself, this is high praise indeed.<\/p>

The tyres<\/h3>

The HERO\u2019s hybrid tyres are ideal for a child\u2019s bike as they\u2019re versatile enough for any terrain, yet not as bulky or heavy as mountain bike tyres. An impressive, additional touch is the solid aluminium rims which add to the stylish feel and quality of the bike.<\/p>","value":"

孩子在hornit英雄蹬自行车

在协会

hornit标志

由陈怡蓉,一个渴望的小自行车运动员的妈妈经过测试

教你的孩子第一次平衡并骑踏板自行车可能是令人生畏的,但它不一定是,因为右边自行车可以对你的小一个骑自行车体验产生所有差异。

第一个踏板的自行车应该是坚固的,但足够轻的操纵,并感到安全和舒适,以帮助您的孩子获得信心。

那么,Hornit HERO是否配得上它的“超级大国”地位呢?我们的初审审查员和一位母亲对它进行了测试。

广告

它是谁?

Hornit英雄16”适合两年半到六年的儿童。两年半到四年半的儿童也有一个略微较小的英雄14“”

HERO 16”的内径为40.5厘米至50.5厘米(14英寸脚踏自行车的内径为34厘米至44厘米),适合4至5岁的普通用户。我们的审稿人6岁的孩子在测试时可以轻松地骑16英寸,但可能在几个月内就会超过它。

如果你渴望得到你的三个岁开​​始在蹬自行车,14” 是最佳的尺寸去。

hornit英雄16

乍一看

开箱即用,它会立即明确表示,HERO 16” 不是普通的蹬自行车。其流线型设计和轻质铝框架以粗体金属红(称为鲷鱼红)使得用于极简和功能的显着的情况。

从紧凑鞍混合动力轮胎,创新的皮带传动,漂亮的踏板和累进框架,很明显,这个自行车的重量,舒适性和安全性是首要任务。

第一踏板自行车的重量很重要。自行车越轻,你的孩子就会觉得越舒服,也就越容易从一辆平衡自行车过渡到另一辆自行车,在处理弯道和起伏的地形方面获得信心。在比较了HERO和Saracen Mantra 1.6 Bike(同一类别的儿童自行车,重6.4公斤(不包括踏板))的重量后,HERO轻松获胜。

组装

该Hornit英雄孤独与切出的手柄使其易于提升和运输的小型箱。当涉及到组装,自行车是比较简单的放在一起,即使是小谁知道自行车是一个新手。这是由于用大量的信息图表,加上易于后续视频教程综合说明书(你会发现在盒子本身的链接视频)。

自行车足够完全包装,以保护它免受凹痕和划痕,却是快速而轻松地打开包装并用手去除保护元件,因此您不会遇到用锋利的刀或剪刀刮骑自行车的风险。

大会注意到了约20分钟,包括快速的打气筒。However, as it specifies in the instruction booklet, the bike doesn’t come with the necessary tools needed for assembly which include a screwdriver, an allen key and a monkey wrench or pedal spanner for the pedals, so you’ll need to have those handy. A small critique is that the pedals need to be installed with a spanner which can leave tool marks (rather than an allen key), which is a bit of a shame given the beauty of this bike.

此外,这辆自行车的轮子上并没有快速释放的烤肉串。所以,万一被刺穿,你需要准备好工具。

前面和后面的车轮容易地安装并有在前面或后面得益于发货前检查和调整由Hornit的机制没有制动摩擦。在具有质量后轮毂组合,这意味着,后轮自由地为年龄旋转,其转换为较少的能量丢失时蹬踏。

车把也直截了当穿上,尽管没有标记或线条指示器这使得杆对准位的一种艺术。

在大会上,您可能会发现踏板地间隙小于其他自行车。虽然这不是一个主要问题,但如果您的孩子恰好将内部踏板保持在拐角处或未能保持踏板水平的情况下,这可能是有点不可达到的。

突出的特点

重量

HERO最好的特点之一就是它的重量。它只有5.7公斤(HERO 14英寸的5.4公斤),是市面上最轻的自行车之一,这一特点经常被儿童自行车忽视。如果你考虑到4岁儿童的平均体重是18公斤,那么一辆8到10公斤的自行车骑起来就太笨重了——而且,令人惊讶的是,这正是目前市场上儿童脚踏自行车的平均重量。学习骑一辆更轻巧的自行车是获得自信和技能的捷径。

霍尼特英雄后轮和皮带驱动

皮带传动

我们喜欢HERO的高级闸门皮带传动系统,它是防锈和清洁,无需用油或润滑脂处理。这使得它更容易长期维护,并且对小手和手指来说是安全的。

说到舒适,马鞍可以说是最重要的组成部分之一,在这种情况下,它不会让人失望。HERO鞍座上的填充层可以防止震动,而均衡的设计确保了踩踏时的最佳舒适度。太宽的马鞍会因为大腿与座椅两侧的摩擦而引起摩擦。这个鞍座重量轻,易于调整,使双脚保持在地面上,以减少摔倒的风险。

框架

流线型的铝框架使HERO 16“感觉不那么吓人相比,更笨重的模型。我们的迷你测试员轻松地骑着自行车,甚至自己把它抬到人行道上。

我们的评论家说,HERO框架是接近完美的,因为她见过一个孩子的自行车,作为一个狂热的自行车运动员自己,这是高度赞扬确实如此。

轮胎

英雄的混合型轮胎非常适合孩子的自行车,因为他们是多才多艺足以让任何地形,尚不能作为大件或重如山地自行车轮胎。令人印象深刻的,额外的触摸是固体铝轮辋这增加了时尚的感觉和品质的自行车。

Hornit英雄后轮

曲柄

英雄另一个奇妙的特点是它的长曲柄,这是理想的小腿部,因为它允许更大的转弯半径。长的裂缝也意味着对踏板所需的力。这使得在不平整或平坦的地形更高效,舒适的乘坐感。

男孩hornit英雄蹬自行车

让我们来谈谈钱

Hornit HERO的零售价约为369英镑,毫无疑问,这是一款优质的儿童自行车,但你花了钱就能得到它的质量。市场上很少有第一批脚踏自行车拥有如此高质量的铝框架。Hornit还非常小心地确保自行车上的每个部件都是轻量化、舒适的,并且适合孩子,目的是让骑自行车成为一种有益的、愉快的体验,而不是让孩子为了保持健康而不得不做的事情。

这种自行车也取得了去年是一个伟大的手,我下来供弟弟妹妹的选择,所以我们觉得这是一个很好的投资。英雄14” 是在349£稍微便宜一些。

HERO还提供了框架和叉子的最初三年保修期,作为原始购买者,在注册您的详细信息后,您将获得终身保修期Hornit网站

判决(现在)

总的来说,这是一个聪明的小自行车与额外的优势。由于其时尚的设计和功能部件,它是超轻的,对第一次学习骑自行车的孩子来说一点也不可怕。
