An elite experience
Islabikes’ expertise in positioning a child’s body on a bicycle comes from years of experience competing in elite level competition. We know how an off-road bike needs to perform, and how it needs to feel. The aluminium 7005 series T6 heat treated Creig frame is Islabikes’ own design and features a new down tube profile, creating perfect fork clearance and increased front end strength. The Creig features adjustable air sprung front suspension, with hydraulic lockout and external rebound, which is tuned specifically to respond harmoniously with a lightweight rider.
Big concepts for small riders
Our Creig is equipped with a SRAM twist grip shifter, which provides better control for small hands. Combined with the new SRAM GX T2 clutch rear derailleur, this provides precise and slick shifting no matter what the terrain. Just like in our Pro Series, a 1 x 10 drivetrain with a single front chaing ring provides ambitious young riders with a generous range of gears just right for tricky climbs and quick descents. The 104 BCD narrow / wide aluminium chain ring provides dependable chain retention in case the trail gets rough, while still offering fine tuned gearing.
Comfort and control
Hands are perfectly placed and safe on our custom ultra slim handlebars and grips. The handlebars are narrow enough to fit shorter arms comfortably, and wide enough to control the bike over technical terrain. The 60mm long stem can be flipped to position the bars higher for a more relaxed adventure or lower for a racier position. Our low Q factor cranks create a very small distance between the pedals, which sets the rider up for comfortable cornering and an efficient pedal stroke.
The right saddle
A perfectly proportioned saddle designed just for Islabikes to fit a child’s narrow hips, provides great support and a comfortable position with no unnecessary bulk. Because of its size, our saddle allows the rider to easily slip back over the rear wheel, keeping the bike balanced on descents when riding out of the saddle.
Light going up, steady on downhills
The Creig is equipped with ultra light and strong, alloy, disc-specific rims built with light gauge stainless steel spokes to create a light and compliant feel when climbing and full control on descents. Vee’s Crown GEM 2.25″ wide tires are particularly suitable for lighter riders. They are well-made with strong but flexible sidewalls and provide great grip on a wide variety of terrains and surfaces.
