The new range of Vitus kids bikes are ready to make riding more fun and inspire confidence for family adventures. The lightweight alloy frames, alloy wheels and rigid forks ensure these bikes have everything your young rider needs and nothing that they don’t, with no extra complication or weight to hold them back. Each component is perfectly proportioned for smaller riders to ensure comfort and control. The fun starts here.
To ensure that the your child can stop with ease, Vitus have bolted on a set of Tektro V-Brakes to give a solid braking performance. Along with these they have got short pull levers making it that little bit easier for the children to reach the levers.
To help stability and whilst pedaling, Vitus have kitted the 16 out with a new chainset that has a reduced Q Factor. This brings the pedals as close to the centre of the bike as possible without effecting the chain alignment. In doing this it allows your child to pedal smoother and reduce the amount of side to side movement they may get from a tradional childs bike chainset.
Rest assured that each Vitus bike is fully built, tested and tuned by Wiggle's team of qualified bike mechanics to ensure your bike arrives in perfect condition. Find out which size fits you by clicking the size chart tab.

First emerging as a frame builder in 1970s France, Vitus Bikes played a pivotal role in pioneering the design and manufacture of lugged and bonded aluminium frames, the most iconic being the 979, groundbreaking at the time and still prized among collectors today. In 1982 we engineered and developed the 979 Carbone, one of the very first frames to take carbon fibre technology from the aerospace industry and apply it to bikes. Their tradition of innovation continued throughout subsequent decades with frames which included the 1991 ZXI monocoque carbon frame, the spirit of which lives on in their latest generation of monocoque road bikes. Without exception, each of the bikes – from their singlespeed commuter to the high-end carbon road model – won plaudits for their ride quality, build and great value. The reviews confirmed what they knew all along, and they intend to improve on these already test-winning models as Vitus push forward with the development of this great brand of bikes. “Credit has to be due to a brand that has come back from the ashes and rather than milk the prestige of the old days, has set its sights on the biggest players on the scene.” CYCLIST magazine. Vitus bikes have been tested in many of the top cycling titles and websites across all disciplines. Their bikes have won group tests across Europe and are regarded as some of the best on the market.
