The Austrian based company behind woom-bikes is dedicated to creating the best kids bikes available. Founded by Christian Bezdeka and Marcus Ihlenfeld, Hefezopf the two bike enthusiasts were inspired to create bicycles that inspire children and parents alike.
They have a range of bikes designed specifically for young riders and their families, from balance bikes to electric hardtails that can help your kiddos climb hills while you’re out riding together. All of their bikes are built to suit a variety of ages and heights, and come with top-notch components that will last for years to come.
Woom NOW 1 is a lightweight, stable balance bike that allows your child to get familiar with the basics of riding. With a sturdy aluminum frame, air-filled tires and rear v-brake, the bike offers stability while your child is learning to control their balance.
It’s also equipped with a steering limiter, which prevents accidental overturning and instills confidence while allowing your child to develop their own pedaling abilities on the bike. The seat and handlebars can be easily adjusted, and it is suitable for children from the age of 2 to 4 years old.
The woom NOW is perfect for parents who want to encourage their children to commute to school, soccer practice or Grandmas’ houses with a light and easy-to-use bike that will allow them to carry their own gear. It has a small front mesh frame bag and a rack that can be mounted for carrying panniers.
This is one of the smallest bikes in woom’s lineup, but it packs a lot of punch for its size. The Soopa-Doopa-Hoops aluminum rims offer excellent strength and light weight, while the Schwalbe Little Joe tires are wide enough to provide plenty of grip on both paved and unpaved roads.
A front mounted rack with 22 lbs of load weight sits low to the ground, so it’s not difficult to maneuver and is very stable. It also has a front light, so your kiddo can ride safely even after dark, and the front wheel stays centered in case they bump into something while cycling.
The handlebars are designed for a good reach, and the small diameter grips are ergonomic to help ease the strain on your child’s wrists during longer rides. These features help make the woom NOW one of the most comfortable bikes for kids to ride around on, and it’s also extremely durable.
The woom NOW is a great choice for any child who wants to try a bike that they can use to carry their own gear on and off the bike, but it also makes for an excellent alternative to a long-tail cargo bike when you need to pack a bunch of stuff into your child’s bike for a day out on the trail. Its lower bottom bracket also makes it easy for your child to mount a frame bag or panniers to the rack, and the front wheel is still centered for easy handling.
