CHILD-FRIENDLY DESIGN - FORM FOLLOWS FUNCTION
Children have a smaller field of vision than adults, i.e. they only take in their surrounding with a limited viewing angle. This limitation carries risks, especially in areas close to traffic. For this reason, it is particularly important that children are in the most upright position possible when sitting on a bike. Only a relaxed, upright posture makes it possible for children to perceive their surroundings in an optimum way when riding a bike, which provides the basis for safe driving behaviour. PUKY® takes into account meaningful adjustment ranges for individual growth phases and thereby ensures a useful working life. Because children's centre of gravity, unlike that of adults, is located in the upper half of the body, it is also especially important to design the frame geometry so that a children's bicycle exhibits a particularly balanced driving behaviour. The child-friendly positioning of the pedal bearings and the optimal distance between saddle and handlebars are additional important factors for a child-friendly frame geometry.
SAFETY HANDLEBAR GRIPS - EASY GOING!
Safety and child friendliness are key points of all PUKY® vehicles. So PUKY® was the first manufacturer who built special safety handlebar grips with large baffles. These protect hands against injuries when an accident happens or when the child should fall on the handlebar. At the same time, the safety handlebar prevent unwanted lateral slipping. The grip surface provides good grip and the small diameter is suitable for children's hands and allows a complete gripping. An air chamber is integrated to absorb load peaks caused by vibrations. It prevents numbness during longer journeys.
CLOSED CHAIN BOX - PINCH FINGERS - IMPOSSIBLE
It is not without reason that the standard for play bicycles in the EU requires a closed chain box. If the chain is open, it can quickly happen that children are seriously injured by pinching their fingers in the chain. That's why PUKY® always has a chain box on wheels for this age group. We care about the well-being of our children. In addition, the closed chain box also prevents shredded and dirty trousers or clothes.
HANDLEBAR PROTECTOR - IMPACT PROTECTION INSIDE
No master has yet fallen from the sky, but all the big cyclists from their first balance bike. So that just in case the consequences are as light as possible, we provide a large handlebar pad directly with. This minimizes the impact on the handlebars. As always with PUKY® fabric and foam padding are of course TÜV tested, GS certified, pollutant-free, UV resistant and extremely resistant to abrasion.
IMPACT-RESISTANT POWDER COATING - QUALITY MADE IN WÜLFRATH
The extremely impact-resistant and durable powder coating is applied by us in our own factory in Wülfrath on all our vehicles. It encases the metal components like a plastic coating and is UV and weather resistant and of course free of toxins and pollutants.
