The Dirt Hero off-road balance bike is a scaled down enduro machine, designed specifically for MTB kids who want to take to the trails. Off-road pneumatic tyres, 12-14” convertibility, mtb geometry and a rear hydraulic disc brake inspires confidence and progression in mini mountain bikers who want to get off the driveway and onto the dirt.


- Age: 2 - 3 years

- Minimum suggested inseam: 337mm / 13.3"

- Minimum saddle height: 317mm / 12.5"

The Dirt Hero takes 12” and 14” wheel sizes, it's essentially 2 bikes in 1.

Transitioning from 12” to 14”, instead of rushing to a 16” pedal bike, gives your little one more time to develop key skills and build a love for riding off-road - so when that next step comes, they'll be ready for it with skills like braking already under their belt.

Pneumatic mtb tires are essential for off-road riding. The air filled tires with deep tread significantly increase grip, giving your little one the confidence they need to tackle the trails. Air filled tires also act as suspension, dampening bumps and roots along the way for a smoother ride.

The Magura HC1 brake lever has some of the best reach adjustment on the market – meaning you can set the lever much closer to the handlebars than other brakes, a critical factor in usability for small hands with limited reach.

Providing more braking power & requiring less hand strength to use than v brakes – the Dirt Hero features a Magura MT4 hydraulic rear disc brake with the world’s first child safe rotor guard.

Learning to brake before peddling is an important step in a kids mtb journey, and we believe that hydraulic disc brakes are the best option for balance bikes.

Not only do they provide more power, but require far less hand strength to operate than V brakes, making them ideal for little hands. We’ve also created the world’s first child safe rotor guard, for parent's peace of mind.


Your little shredder can customise their ride with the choice of 3 MTB frame skins, featuring the much-loved animals from our Shred Til Bed series.
