Road Bikes for the next Generation...


For Children that don't want to Kid around, the Grupetto PRIMAVERA is a perfectly proportioned Road bike for all those young racers with their hearts set on becoming the next Bradley Wiggins or Lizzie Armitstead.

It Looks as good as it rides... The Grupetto “Primavera” Road bike fits perfectly. Available in 3 sizes that cover all ages from 6 to 16. in a choice of 22’’, 24” and 26” wheeled bikes all ready to race. Designed in Italy, the Primavera uses an Aluminium frame with a semi- integrated headset, combined with Shimano, Miche & Byte components to create a superb looking bike that’s geometry and proportions are totally in scale to the young rider.

Experience...


The Italians know how to build road bikes for Bambini, for years local clubs have nurtured young riders, teaching them the bike handling skills and  positioning sense that will last them a lifetime- Grupetto have called upon much of this expertese to help with the technical set up for the NEW Primavera.



We have made sure the Primavera is a bike that fits perfectly in all areas, we have been meticulous in sourcing components that are right for kids and how they tend to ride and steer, from gearing and crank lengths to the easy reach Shimano shifters and breaking, we have utilised all the best components possible. For example the cranks on the smallest model are 145mm compared with 151mm or 170mm on the others giving less chance of little feet hitting front wheels, tarmac etc when cornering - not to mention a much more elegant pedal stroke.

Ideal for Road, TT, Triathlons or just riding out with Mum & Dad on Sunday - bike handling skills and race craft will be learnt far quicker on a properly proportioned bike



The Primavera is also designed to look the part, with Italian styling that’s the match of many of it’s latin big cousins. The stunning Nero/Rosso paint schemes attention to detail is a joy to behold, and even the depth of the child friendly handlebars and properly proportioned size of the race saddle, help ensure that the Primavera is not just a Kids bike with a pair of “curly bars bolted on”. Reach and saddle set back are critical in the fit on any bike, not least when you have the added challenge of a fast growing child, the Primavera has a compact frame geometry and maximum adjustment in both stem and seat post areas to make sure the rider gets a bike that fits properly, but will also adapt as the child grows, rather than shoehorning them onto an ill fitting bike that will be awkward to handle, uncomfortable to ride and even dangerous.

It’s a totally false economy putting your child on a bike that is to big for them and which ends up not getting ridden because they feel unsure on it or its to much like hardwork as they can’t handle the gearing and they struggle up inclines.


Until now Weights of kids bike have been notoriously high, (usually influenced by heavier materials costing less,)  the Primavera weighs in at just over 9kg for the 22” which will make any kids (and their parents!) lives so much easier, next time the road, path or track turns upwards or indeed when trying to win the local Criterium championship.

All gearing ratios are set within the standard British Cycling & British Triathlon Gear levels. Grupetto also know kids grow fast and that this can be costly, so we offer the option to “trade in” your old Primavera (at a price reflecting its condition) if parents want to upgrade to a larger size after a few years.
