The Smoothy features a unique cast Magnesium frameset that’s extremely functional and visually awesome. Within the design, Vitus has incorporated a useful carry handle for Mum & Dad, and some integrated footrests for that game-changing moment when your child has the confidence to glide.
Vitus has taken inspiration from their adult bikes for the steering controls, with the headset upper and lower bearings making the steering control smooth and reliable, with 20mm of spacers under the stem allowing you to fine-tune the height of the handlebars. A shorty stem and quality set of aluminium handlebars with a slight back sweep, and some soft and comfortable TRP grips round out the front of the bike.
Saddles are often overlooked on balance bikes, but not here. Vitus has a specially designed balance bike saddle that features a ‘scoop’ shape so your child will be sat in the correct position all of the time. This ensures they can steer effectively and are positioned perfectly, giving themselves the best possible chance of balancing effectively. Also, the seatpost is fully height adjustable allowing room for growth
The lightweight wheels feature a set of premium aluminium 12 spoke hubs, helping to keep weight to a minimum, and giving the bike a very cool look. Plus, the wheels are fitted with CST IRONKID 12 x 2.1” tyres which have been carefully chosen to deliver excellent rolling capability on both hard and soft ground, so the bike remains efficient to glide no matter what the surface.
Please Note: To continue to strive to make better and safer products we are in the process of removing all valve dust caps from the Vitus Smoothy. We felt like this was the right thing to do with the potential (no matter how small) of the caps being a choking hazard to small children.

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.
