Why should adults have all the fun? At The Ark, we love to see little ones take their first steps on balance bikes and then progress from our 12" to 24" kids bikes. Our brands reward you with generous trade-ins along the way.


Starting early is the key to teaching your young ones the joys of bicycle life, and there's no better way to do so than with Specialized's Hotwalk. It's for kids 18 months to 4 years old, and it's designed for less crashes and more smiles to make learning to ride a bike as easy as can be.

From £139



With the Riprock Coaster 16, riding gets boiled down to its simplest element—fun. And to make sure of it, this is a bike with loads of cool features that are easy for your little ones to use, like a coaster brake for simple stopping, wide 16x2.3" tires that increase stability and confidence, and tough components that will stand up to years of abuse. It's the perfect bike for your little ripper to start getting out on the trail with—we just wish that we had one when we were kids.

FROM £229



Kids love to ride, but they also grow like weeds, which always leaves parents in a bit of a conundrum: Do you splurge on your child's bike when they’ll likely grow out of it in a few years? That's why Specialized made the Hotrock 20—a well-priced and designed bike with plenty of gear range to tackle the neighbourhood hills, and enough front-end travel to ride beginner's trails confidently.

FROM £229


Traction, control, confidence, and fun—the Riprock is the perfect bike for your kid to start hitting the trails.

FROM £419


Better performance. Better value. Better Rockhopper. The all-new Rockhopper comes with added performance without dialing up the price.

FROM £449




The Grow series starts with the 0 balance bike, for two-year-olds, and moves through to geared 1 and 2 models with pedals. 


Grow 2 bikes are appropriate for children aged five-and-a-half to nine years of age, a great range when children usually outgrow bikes very quickly.

You can easily adjust a Grow bike and it only requires a couple of Allen keys and a few minutes’ work to increase the frame length and adjust the stem and seat height. 

FROM £189



With Orbea’s MX Kids lineup, finding a  machine like yours that is scaled down for small riders becomes a reality. MX Kids bikes are among the lightest on the market and make use of smaller brake levers, saddles and pedals because comfort, control and fun aren’t only for adults!

FROM £269


Nurturing a love of riding requires an investment and your child understands the significance of riding a bike just like yours. And with frames designed to last a lifetime, Your MX Kids bike will be ready for more kids whenever you are. 

FROM £399



Just like the popular adult-sized Laufey, this fun-loving machine is perfect for riders of all ages. Laufey Junior is a tough, scaled-down trail bike that relishes new terrain.


It's for first-timers and expert mini-shredders. The range offers multiple wheel sizes, burlier tires and suspension forks that look and function just like yours.

FROM £479
