About the UP 6
Woom specializes in making kid’s bikes from the ground up. Most of the components are built with a smaller geometry in mind, including the Woom UP 6. The saddle is made to accommodate the anatomy of smaller bodies, and the handlebars are invertible if your kid goes through a growth spurt. And if your kid ever has to drag their bike upstairs or into the car, the relatively light weight of 37.3 lbs makes that easy.
Another selling point is the Fazua Evation motor and battery. It’s designed to offer the least friction of any e-bike motor. It’s also removable with a few clicks and no tools to allow the eMTB to become a pure MTB.
Designed to be ridden with other mountain bike enthusiasts, the Woom UP 6 can be fine-tuned for the rider and for different terrains. The fork, for example, can be tuned to the rider’s weight and the terrain of the day. You can also use the lock-out function for both flat roads or climbs.
Reasons to Buy
Offering around 20 miles of range (less on big terrain), the Woom UP 6 allows kids to build their stamina and start getting the taste of spending time in the countryside. It’s perfect for little ones between 10 to 14 years old and 55″ to 65″ tall. And even though it’s a kids’ bike, it still comes with standard 26″ tires so they can handle all the same obstacles as you.
This e-bike is also limited to 12 mph — a great child-friendly aspect. You can rest assured that your child won’t zoom away too quickly when using the three levels of pedal assist. Do be aware that downhill, only their nerves will dictate their maximum speed! Just in case they ever do need to bail quickly, the curved top tube makes it easy.
Things to Consider
This machine would be under-used by a kid who doesn’t understand the finer points of electric mountain bikes with a parent who has no knowledge or experience in the same. If both you and your child lack knowledge of eMTBs and how to use them, there are cheaper bikes out there that would be better to start with.
