Woom has become an incredibly popular kids bike brand in recent times, and at Bike Club we understand why. To put it simply, Woom kids bikes are incredibly well designed, are a joy to ride, and also look great.

In this guide to 6 types of Woom bikes for your kids we will give you an overview of their range of bikes, from their smallest to their largest, and what makes them stand out from the crowd. 

Who are Woom?

Woom is an Austrian bike business founded in 2013 offering premium bikes for kids. It was started by two keen cyclists looking to make bikes tailored to children's proportions, and has grown into an international business selling in over 30 countries. 

Today it is amongst the most popular kids bike manufacturers in Europe with a reputation for quality and fun bikes. In Germany and Austria it is a market leader. 

Sustainability at Woom

Sustainability is central to Woom, which is why they make bikes that are built to endure everything little ones can throw at them. They want their bikes to be used by multiple children to reduce waste. 

Another focus is on inspiring them to keep cycling when they grow up, reducing their carbon footprint by using their bike for transport. Woom itself is also looking to reduce it’s emission by at least 42% by 2030. 

Finally, Woom seeks to build relationships with other sustainability driven companies within the cycling world. This is why we are proud to supply Woom bikes on a subscription basis as part of the green economy. 

Woom Bike Design

Woom’s bike design is focused on making ultralight premium kids bikes. For young children, lightweight bikes make the learning process significantly easier. In addition to this Woom bikes are also made to be robust and durable, with the goal of being used by more than one child. 

To make a Woom bike as comfortable as possible, 90% of the bike parts have been developed specially for children, based on the proportions of kids’ bodies. The ergonomic and easy-to-ride design also makes them easy to handle and safe to ride. All things considered Woom bikes are amongst the best lightweight bikes for kids.

Woom Balance Bikes

A balance bike is a bike without pedals for introducing toddlers and young children to cycling. With no pedals to worry about, the child propels the bike forward with their feet alone. Woom offers two balance bikes, the Woom 1 and Woom 1 Plus. 

Woom 1 

Woom 1 is designed for young children aged 18 months and up, with a short minimum inside leg measurement of 26cm. It is conveniently lightweight, at just 3kg, meaning it’s easy to handle for your child and easy for you to carry when they inevitably get worn out! 

The geometry of the bike has been designed for toddlers, making it comfortable for them to ride. It also features a rear brake to help them transition to pedal bikes and a steering limiter to help them stay on course.

Woom 1 Plus

Woom also offers a larger balance bike to cater to children 3 years and older, to help them prepare for pedal bikes. It shares a similar design to the Woom 1 original and also comes with a footrest for kids to put their feet as they glide along. 

First Pedal Woom Bikes

First pedal bikes are exactly what they sound like, and they are the next step up from balance bikes. They introduce your little one to using pedals and will develop their skills to have them cycling with confidence. The ideal first pedal bike will be lightweight and easy to handle, making for an easy transition from balance bikes.  

Woom 2 

The Woom 2 has a 14” wheel size with a minimum inside leg measurement of 40cm, and generally suits riders between 3 and 5 years old. It is incredibly lightweight for its size, being only 5kg, making it a great bike to learn to pedal on. 

For safety it features a rear brake that is easy to pull for small hands, and a steering limiter to help prevent your child from oversteering. Every detail has been considered to make the bike feel intuitive to ride, including adapting the distance between the pedals to ergonomically fit a childs proportions. 

Woom 2 is loved by our members, with one 5 star reviewer saying “after 2 outings on this bike my son was able to ride it on his own. His confidence has sky rocketed and he loves his bike and looks forward to riding it.” Jo B. 

Woom 3

Woom 3 is naturally the next size up, with a minimum inside leg measurement of 42 cm and aimed at 4 to 6 year olds. 

Like Woom 2 it has a super lightweight frame and a low centre of gravity, to make cycling as easy as possible for young children. It has all the same features as the Woom 2, just in a larger size.    

Woom 3 has received all 5 star reviews from our members so far, with one saying “I couldn’t believe the quality of this bike, it's so light and my son loved it, my son's biking ability has improved so much.” Matthew N.

Hybrid Woom Bikes

Woom’s hybrid bike range starts with their Woom Original Bikes, including Woom 4, Woom 5, and Woom 6. Their main hybrid bikes all share the same great design and features. They have a superlight aluminium frame like all Woom bikes which combined with its age-specific geometry makes handling a joy. 

In order for the bikes to grow with the child they have a vario stems that can adjust the bike height and length. All the details of the bike have been considered to make it as natural to ride as possible. To this end the pedals are ergonomically positioned for comfort, the twist gear shifter is easy to operate, and the brake levers can be operated with little strength.  

Their hybrid bikes all come with low resistance tyres with great grip, to help your little one ride along on whatever type of terrain they find.
