Well, hello there. 

Say hello to a bike that is extreme in every way. The best performance, capability and configuration in a 16" yet, it is a bike created for early riders to push the limits of what's possible, and then do it again. 

It's built around the most impressive robust and lightweight frame set. Triple butted tubing and a CNC'd chain stay yoke, means there are no weak points. Precise wheel and disc alignment every time thanks to 12mm thru axles front and rear. Complete with internal cable routing to make sure everything is out of the way. 

For those beginning to hit gaps, protection against casing with double walled tubeless ready rims on CNC'd hubs and straight pull spokes. Helped by a long, low and slack geometry for confidence inspiring stability and short stay, quick handling for when it gets technical.

Assured, efficient power transfer through a narrow q factor crankset with a direct mount narrow wide chainring and finished off with custom Rticthey controls and hydraulic disc brakes with some of the lightest actuation we've tested. 

This is the best start to hitting the bike parks, but if you do want more, our four bearing cassette hub, 12 x 142mm drop outs, mech hanger and additional routing, mean gears are an easy option  - and with our CNC'd yoke, so are 2.6" tyres for those really riding the rough.

High quality bike

I’ve just come back from Morzine with my 6 year old daughter (small for her age) and the 16” Hellion was great on the slopes. Disc breaks really made a difference in her confidence on the trickier sections. The grippy tyres also helped!

Good

I have boght Helion 16 for my son, 3.5 yrs old 104cm height. Before He was riding Woom from 1.5yrs.

ER Helion 16 bike looks great. Fat tyres, acurate hydraulic breaks, as I can see, son hadels it well (from the second day:)).

What I did not like: it is china made!!! but seller declares that it is Swiss made. Tyres and brakes are some “no name”. The packedge was not so good as it was said in description. There is no instruction how to attach ligt reflectors. It coud be more protectors from the chain between the leg. There is no accesories in stock (like stand leg, and etc.) The bike front fork was scrached from the box paper. So in a conclusion I would say, that the bike is good, but is not so well served as discribed. Woom looks different, but I prefer quality of serving, packing full range of accesories and description. The price for ER shoud more friendlier. I do not think, that I will go for “ER full” bike, after my son will grow out this Helion and hope this bike still be in acondition to ride for my youngest son.

So this my experience.

Most capable 16” bike

I searched and shopped for months to find the best bike for my son. He is unusually good for his age (4) and we live in an area known for cross-country mountain biking. If your child likes speed, air, single-track trails, and big descents, then you need a proper bike.

The Hellion is different. Photos do not do it justice. For example, it isn’t painted silver, that is a clear coat finish over brushed aluminum. All of the hardware is top notch and built to last.

People who know bikes know they are looking at something special when they see the Early Rider Hellion. I’ve taken it to local bike shops to show them what they should be selling and the bike shop employees are impressed to see such components on a “child’s bike”.

Initially, I wanted the Seeker because I wanted the low maintenance and long service life of a Gates Carbon Belt drive. The Hellion uses a chain. On the other hand, the Hellion is built to add gears. There is plenty of space between the rear drop-outs to fit 135mm hubs and disc brakes. The frame has holes pre-drilled for adding a transmission cable from the handlebars to just above the sprocket.

Although more expensive than other small bikes, it is priced competitively for what you get.

Highly recommended!
