Check Out Our New Ride On Toys!

02 July 2021 12:26



Just landed this week at FunBikes is our brand new range of fully licensed ride on toys.


Are you excited? Because we certainly are!


These cars, quads, HGVs and bikes are the real deal and we know for sure, your kids will love riding them.


In this article, we’ll answer some of our most frequent questions regarding our new range as well as tell you how you can get your brand new ride on toy even quicker!

What Does Fully Licensed Mean?


Audi, Bentley, BMW, Ford, Lamborghini and Mercedes have given FunBikes the rights for us to use their licensing in our new range of ride on toys.


This means that they’re not cheap knockoffs, but actual scaled-down versions of some of their most iconic cars!


The Lamborghini Aventador is one of our favourites and with the iconic colours, the signature design, everything has been modelled from the real thing.

Are They Different From Other Ride On Toys?


One of the key features of these ride on toys is that the tyres are made of soft EVA rubber, as opposed to the hard plastic wheels on other ride on toys.


This instantly enhanced the driving experience, making for a smoother more comfortable ride and a quieter one too!


And as we discussed before, all these car manufacturers have approved the use of all branding, badges and designs of the cars. Meaning they’re identical replicas of the real models.


And with features including a fully functioning light system, multimedia and dash and operating doors, boots and bonnets. These are so much more than just ride on toys and start to blur the lines between toys and scaled-down replica models.

Save Time With Click And Collect


And it’s not just our range of ride on toys that are new, we now also offer click and collect services so you can get your brand new ride on toy even quicker.


But don’t fear, click and collect is available across all our fantastic FunBikes products. So even if you wanted an MXR 50cc dirt bike or a T-Max Roughrider, just follow the steps as normal and at checkout select the new “Click and Collect” option.




From there you’ll continue to process the transaction as normal and will be sent an email and text to confirm your item is ready to collect.



The collection point is Leicester, so if you live hours away from our collection point, standard delivery may still be the better option for now.

3 Best Quad Bikes For Kids To Teens

18 June 2021 12:13





With so many quad bikes to choose from here at FunBikes, we thought we’d give you a quick overview of the 3 best quad bikes for kids, so you can decide which quad bike you want to get your child.


And whilst there are so many other quad bikes we have in stock here at FunBikes, these are just some of our best sellers and ones we believe are great for starting, growing up with and lasting for your kids to get years of fun out of.

T-Max Roughrider


Where better to start than arguably the king of kids quad bikes. You love it, we love it. The T-Max Roughrider is much loved and offers the rider everything and more that they want in a quad bike.


Off-road tyres, twistgrip throttle, three-speed settings to help get your kids used to riding at top speeds before moving them up to the next level!


Most commonly purchased for children aged 5-9, you can see why it’s so popular!

SMC Scout 90cc


The SMC Scout 90cc quad bike is a great in-between model for children aged between 6-10.


Features include a kick start engine, fully automatic gearbox and a powerful 2 stroke single-cylinder engine that delivers on speed and power.


So if your child has outgrown the T-Max Roughrider and is ready to take that next step to a more powerful quad bike, the SMC Scout 90cc is a great place to start.

Pentora 150cc


The final quad bike on our list is the Pentora 150cc quad bike.


Perfect for young adults and teens for those aged between 13-16 and who have outgrown either the T-Max Roughrider or the SMC Scout.


The Pentora is a different beast altogether and should be ridden by kids who have the confidence to ride a 150cc quad bike.


Features include a powerful 4 stroke single-cylinder engine, an automatic gearbox and aggressive off-road tyres.


Put simply, it’s the real deal and you won’t be disappointed!

How Fast Is A 50cc Dirt Bike?

11 June 2021 11:27


One of the most popular engine sizes we have here at FunBikes is a 50cc motor and it’s a great introduction motor size for kids who are just getting started in the world of motorbikes.


But how fast is a 50cc dirt bike? What type of power does a 50cc motor kick out?


In this article, we’ll take a look.

Safety Precautions


Parents, when you hear 50cc and the words dirt bike, you instantly think of an incredibly powerful and fast machine that is capable of causing damage.


And of course, this can be the case if not treated with responsibility and respect. If ridden recklessly, the chance of an accident can increase.


So it’s important to always be in control of the bike, wear the correct safety equipment and get to know the bike inside out before riding at top speed.


How Fast Can A 50cc Dirt Bike Go?


Most of our 50cc dirt bikes can range anywhere between 20-40 mph and whilst we can give a single max speed figure for all, that’s because all the bikes are different models, from different manufacturers and have different specs.


So, parents, you’ll be happy to know that when your kids jump on their brand new dirt bikes, they’re not going to be going at crazy speeds putting themselves in danger.


And with many of our bikes featuring kill switches and safety, you can rest assured that if anything were to happen, the bike is fitted with the necessary kit to bring the bike to a complete stop.


Can I Make The Bike Go Faster?


With the correct technological know-how and if you’re a petrolhead, then there may be ways you can make the bike go a little faster.


But that’s why we stock many different size bikes, ranging from 50cc all the way up to 250cc, so that as your child gets older and goes from a beginner to an expert, they can increase the engine size and type of bike they ride.


Buy Online At FunBikes Today


With so many 50cc dirt bikes available to choose from, you can find the dirt bike your son or daughter is after to help them get to grips with learning how to ride their first motorbike.

Best Beginner Dirt Bikes For Teens

12 May 2021 11:38



With so many dirt bikes available here at FunBikes, they all come in different shapes and sizes.


Some are for small children, others are for adults.


But if you’ve never come to our website before, it can be difficult to know which is the product you’re after and which suits your age and size.


In this week's article, we’ll take a look at the 3 best beginner dirt bikes for teens.


M2R RF125


Made 2 Race have designed a beautiful dirt bike that is perfect for teens who are brand new to the world of dirt bikes and who are eager to get started.


The RF125 has so many features that beginners will love and pros will respect.


Hydraulic racing front forks allow for a great feel and comfortable ride, keeping the front wheel planted where it’s needed, giving the rider ultimate control and versatility when riding.


The gripper seat gives the riding comfort and stability when riding, knowing that they won’t be slipping around the seat, making it easier for beginners to find their balance and feel of the bike.


Finally, the 125cc 4 stroke engine has great performance for amateurs but has still enough power for even the expert riders.


10TEN 125R


Pretty much the same as the M2R 125, but with a spin!


The 10TEN 125R is one of the best bikes for teens to learn how to ride on. And even kids can ride this bike to get a feel for what riding a real dirt bike is like!


With similar features to the M2R 125, we’re going to look at some other features the 10TEN 125R dirt bike has to offer.


Such as the aggressive off-road MX tyres which are durable and rugged enough to withstand any terrain. This is also important for riders who are just starting out. As we would suggest riding on grass or dunes so that in any event of an accident, the ground will help break the fall as opposed to tarmac or gravel.


The twistgrip throttle and 50+ mph top speed is more than enough for riders who are just starting out and even more than enough for when you become a dirt bike riding expert!


10TEN 140R

Finally, the 10TEN 140R is a bike that is more intermediate level, given the 140cc engine size.


But nevertheless, if you’re just starting out, but have a real passion for all things motorbikes and dirt bikes, then the 10TEN 140R might just be for you!


This is a dirt bike that will last you forever if you look after it correctly and treat the bike with respect.


Features include an oil-cooled 140cc 4 stroke engine that has so much power it can reach speeds of up to 50 mph and more (depending on riders height and weight).


Similar to the MXR RF125 and the 10TEN 125, they all bear a lot of the same features.


But the 140R just takes it a little further with a more aggressive engine that is ready and raring to go!


Ready To Start Riding?


Here at FunBikes, we have a wide range of dirt bikes from beginner to pro! So take a look online today and find the bike that suits you.

Never has a kids electric scooter been more fun!


Gotrax has taken their quality, reliability, performance and technologies and have shrunk them down to give us the Gotrax 150w kids electric scooter


In this article, we’ll take a look at 3 of the main features this awesome scooter has to offer.


Safety Start Technology


One of the main features the Gotrax 150w electric scooter has is the safety start technology built-in to the scooter.


This is what sets them apart from the rest of their competitors.


See the image below to see how the safety start technology works and you’ll see why it’s so unique and popular!




But it’s really easy to ride, simply place your foot on the front sensor and kick to push start the scooter.


Then place your second foot on the back sensor once you reach 18.8 mph, then the scooter will gradually accelerate to full speed.


To come to a stop it’s just a case of placing your back foot on the brake that’s located over the back wheel, lightly press down to use the brake.


150w Motor


Another core feature of this scooter is the 150w motor.


Reaching speeds of up to 7.5 mph, this is a scooter that is exciting to ride but safe with the speed your kids can go to.


So it’s best of both worlds, they won’t reach any high speeds, but when they’re riding it, the scooter will be more than fast enough for them!


Coupled with the compact 25.2v lithium battery, this scooter can go up to 4 miles on one single charge.

3 Reasons The Ranger Mini Quad Bike Is Awesome!

27 April 2021 03:21



The Ranger Mini Quad Bike is one of the most popular quad bikes we have in stock.


Along with the Roughrider and the Toxic, the Ranger proves to be popular with our customer base and it’s easy to see why!


In this article, we’ll take a look at 3 of the main features the Ranger Mini Quad Bike has to offer.


Petrol And Electric Models


For Mums and Dads who are a bit more technical and love to get to grips with the quad bike, buying a petrol version of the Ranger will help establish some bonding time with your children.


Not only that but you can teach your kids about how the bike works and how to fix it if anything were to ever go wrong.


By introducing these basic fundamentals, might help them later in life when they eventually start to learn how to drive a real motorbike or car.


But for parents and kids who want a hands-off experience and just ride and go, the 800w version is just as good as the 50cc petrol version.


Built For Play


Looking at the Ranger Mini Quad Bike, you’ll see that from a design perspective, the farm-style, UTV body is solidly built for durability and fun!


Grass, gravel, concrete and even gentle off-road use, this quad bike will more or less take anything on in its way.


And the strong steel frame has the ability to bear your child’s weight as they grow. So this quad bike could last them throughout their younger years.


Adult Control


Last but not least, the Ranger comes fully equipped with adult control. Featuring a restrictable throttle for speed control.


Furthermore, the kill switch to instantly stop the quad bike in case anything goes wrong, is also available to help keep your children safe.


It’s also worth noting that we always advise parents to wear the appropriate clothing and helmets, as this can help prevent any serious injuries from happening.


Be sure to take a look at our range of bundle offers to save money when bundling up on protective clothing.

Take a look online at the Ranger mini quad bike to see the full list of features. Whether you choose the 50cc or the 800w, the quad bike is fun, fast, reliable and incredible value for money!

Experience The Thrill of Gotrax Scooters

22 April 2021 09:30


Here at FunBikes we have a wide range of adult electric scooters. But not all electric scooters were created equally!


The Gotrax adult electric scooter range is one of the most popular scooter brands we have in stock.


Fast, functional, reliable and above all, fun. With so many features across all the models, we wanted to give you a reason to get one to experience the thrill of Gotrax scooters for yourself.


In this article, we’ll be looking at what makes Gotrax so cool and popular.


Functionality


First of all, the functionality of the Gotrax scooter range can’t be overlooked, the XR Ultra, GXLV2 and the G4 are all foldable scooters which makes it easier to carry around town.


Hopping on a bus no problem! Jumping in a taxi, no worries!


And Gotrax understands that scooters are commonly associated with kids, and whilst they do have the Gotrax 25v 150w kids electric scooter, the adult variants are smart, stylish and professional.


They look and feel expensive and are made for resilience and durability.


Power


Depending on which model you get, the power varies.


Going from the low end (which is still very much high-end) 250w Gotrax GXLV2 to the G4 and the XR Ultra boasting a 300w motor. These scooters are for serious riders.


All models (except for the kids electric scooter) can reach speeds of up to 15mph, depending on the rider’s height, weight etc.


So you’re getting a scooter that is fit for purpose, whether that’s cruising around a holiday destination or just a quick trip to the shops. Getting from A-B has never been so easy and fun.


Range


Going back to the functionality, the range on these electric scooters are equally impressive.


For each respective model:


Gotrax GXLV2 - up to 12 miles on a single charge

Gotrax XR Ultra - up to 16 miles on a single charge

Gotrax G4 - up to 21 miles on a single charge


So you can see that you can get a lot of distance out of these scooters.


What we would say is to keep under these limits and remember, if you ride out 21 miles away from home, remember to charge the battery or you might not be able to get back.

Therefore, we’d suggest riding out 10.5 miles one way, so you have plenty of milage left to get back home for another charge!

Take a look online at FunBikes today to find the ideal Gotrax scooter for you. We’ve got plenty of models available, all in stock and ready to ride!

How To Become An F1 Driver!

07 April 2021 05:03



Fast, exciting cars that are loud and race other fast cars…


It’s every child’s dream to become a race car driver, isn’t it?


And whilst it may look exciting on the TV, in real-life, F1 drivers are true athletes with a fighter-pilot mentality.


There is a lot of hard work, focus and determination that goes on behind the scenes that we don’t, as fans, often get to see.


But with the release of Netflix’s Drive To Survive Season 3, we thought it’d be a great time to help Mums and Dads get their children into the sport if they didn’t already know how to do so.


It’s not as easy as it is in this article, but these are some of the most common steps to becoming an F1 driver!


Start Karting

First, you need to buy a go-kart and here at FunBikes, we have you covered. Shop the go-karts range at FunBikes and start by taking your children to some race tracks near you to get a feel of the track and how to drive their go-kart around it.


If they like it and continue to get better and better, maybe think about going up to the next level of competition.


Maybe their friends are doing it, or they already love Formula 1 and want to experience the thrill of a race for themselves.


Take a look online to see if there are any karting competitions near you that you could enter your kids into and see how they go!


Whilst it’s at a significantly smaller scale, karting introduces the basic fundamentals of a racing driver and ignites that flame and passion for the sport. As well as the hunger to win!


Many, if not all, of the greatest F1 drivers, started out Karting from Aryton Senna, Michael Schumacher to Sebastian Vettel and Lewis Hamilton. It’s the perfect introduction to the world of racing cars.


Commitment, Dedication, Hard Work

Once you’re in the sport, you’re in. You need to be committed to practising, improving your skill and getting better and better.


This is why it’s important to gauge whether or not your child loves racing and karting before starting to introduce the importance of hard work and dedication needed to succeed at the top level.


If they love Formula 1 and racing already, it shouldn’t be too much of a push to help them to stay focused on their goals, taking them to race tracks each weekend and sharing that experience with them.


And you never know, if they do succeed at the highest level, those fond memories of Mum and Dad at the race track with them, may become the driving force as to why they push themselves and keep on going.


But this isn’t a quick thing. It can take years to hone your skills and train. It may even mean seeing less of your family and friends and seeing more time on the track competing at competitions.


Not only that but it can be quite an expensive hobby for your child to have as it’s not a cheap sport to be in and the costs of becoming a racing driver can sometimes be a financial burden to climb the ranks!


Train The Body And Mind

First, it’s important to address the element of experiencing losses time and time again until finally, you become the one everyone is trying to beat.


But those losses, crashes and heart-stopping moments are not for the faint-hearted. It’s important to develop a strong body and mind in order to succeed.


Furthermore, most drivers are in their top, peak physical condition and whilst on the karting tracks, health isn’t as important as the ranks of the F1, those little focuses on diet, exercise and more could prove to give your child the advantage of being quicker than others.


Reaction times too are important and thinking on the spot is crucial to be able to react quickly to the events unfolding on the track. Whether it’s the opportunity to overtake, reacting to a crash or being one step ahead of the competition, it can all go to who comes out on top!


Build Relationships With Teams And Sponsors

In order to get to the next level, parents, you may need to build relationships with other Mum’s and Dad’s on track, as well as other teams and sponsors. Even at the lowest level.


If your child is very serious about it and they’re good, then networking can help jump to the next level.


This is where it’s make or break as it can be quite expensive to fund the journey of a young racing driver, without the help of a sponsor!


But more often than not, the better your child is at racing, the more they are likely to be scouted with sponsors wanting to work with you.


Have Fun!

Being a race car driver is a lot of work and there’s so much time, money, effort and energy that goes into becoming an F1 driver that, you can forget why you started in the first place!


Even if you don’t make it to the F1 podium and your kids only having fun competing at karting level, it’s still important to have fun, racing your friends, teammates and enemies, whether that’s on a local karting track or under the bright lights of Silverstone!


Conclusion

Whilst this is more of a fun article on how to become an F1 driver, some of the tips we talked about can actually help you break onto the circuit of karting.


There should be no forcing or pressuring your child into becoming an F1 driver as it’s an extremely difficult sport to get into and stick with.


Ultimately what it comes down to is your child having fun, regardless of whether they’re driving against their friends in a local competition, or at the highest level.

Explore The Great Outdoors This Easter With Your FunBikes!

31 March 2021 02:25


Other than Christmas and your little one’s birthday, Easter is probably their 3rd favourite time of the year.


And what’s not to love? Giant chocolate eggs, a long weekend with Mum and Dad.


And the chance to ride around for 4 days on their favourite FunBikes vehicle without even having to go to school!


So it’s not hard to see why Easter rocks!


But with 4 days at your disposal, you have to make them count and that’s why in this weeks blog, we’ll take a look at the best places to take your electric and petrol FunBikes out for a spin.


We know it can be time-consuming choosing where to go, that’s why we wanted to make the decision for you, so you can spend less time deciding where to go and more time riding and enjoying all your FunBikes.


Electric


At FunBikes HQ, we’re lucky to be surrounded by Sherwood Forest and lots of wonderful country walks.


So it makes sense for us to take our kids to Sherwood Forest or Sherwood Pines for a ride around on the electric quad bike or mini dirt and pit bikes.


Now, strictly speaking, we wouldn’t advise you to take your full-sized dirt or pit bikes here, but if your little one has a mini moto, a mini quad or dirt/pit bike, which is electric. Then, personally, we can’t see any problem with that!


Just as long as you’re mindful of others, respect nature and promise to stay close to Mum and Dad, there’s no reason why you shouldn’t be allowed to ride around a country walk or forest near you.


Petrol


With the long weekend ahead of you, you’ll want to visit a dirt track for sure, to let your petrol quad bike or dirt/pit bike run loose!


Experience the fun with like-minded petrolheads who will more than likely be there for the same reason as you are, to have extreme fun!


Or if you have a large and secluded area of land at your disposal, so long as you’re mindful of others and nature, why not have the full area to yourself and ride around on your favourite FunBike.


Check Before You Go


Some of these places might have Easter egg hunts on the go, so it’s always best to call ahead and check that you’re allowed to ride around on an electric quad bike or motorbike.


But that’s mostly for electric.


If you’ve got a petrol quad or motorbike, you might even already have your favourite spot that you ride around time and time again.


Besides, if you’re going to a dirt track or a race track, more than likely, they’re expecting you to go there with a petrol vehicle. So in that case, there’s no need to call ahead.


Wherever you choose to go to have fun on your FunBikes, be sure to tag us on Instagram and you may get featured on our page. We look forward to seeing the snaps!


Happy Easter!

Revisiting The T-Max Roughrider

24 March 2021 01:59



A familiar friend in the quad bike range, the T-Max Roughrider is one of our most popular quad bikes amongst our customers and it’s easy to see why!


With so many features, a stylish and sleek design and plenty of hours spent having fun with friends and family, the T-Max Roughrider is almost the go-to for quad bikes amongst kids.


In this article, we’ll look at why the T-Max Roughrider is so popular with our customers and if you don’t have one, why you should think about getting one!

A Wide Range of Colours

First, the most easily recognisable feature of the T-Max Roughrider is the wide selection of colours to choose from!


Select your style, blue, pink, green and red to really match your little kids’ personality and to help them make a statement when they ride the bike!


Not only that, but consider the wow factor! If your little one loves the colour red but you get them a blue or a pink bike, they might not be as surprised and excited to ride it as if it were a red bike.


So Mums and Dads, remember, you’re shopping for them not you! But, if you wanted to have a sneaky peak at the adult quad bikes we have in stock, by all means, take a break and have a look for yourself here.

Petrol And Electric

If you’re wanting to take your kids to a dirt track so they can get the most out of their quad bike and tear it up with their friends, then a petrol quad bike might be the best bet!


Or if you’re thinking more for at home in the garden or to take on long walks with the family, then the electric model might suit you best as it’s much quieter than the petrol version.


But we like to give our customers the choice!

Great Value For Money

Whichever colour you choose to go for, whether it’s petrol or electric, the T-Max Roughrider is currently priced at £595! Believe us when we say, this is exceptional value for money and you’re getting a great deal.


Currently discounted from £695, you can save that £100 or spend it on safety clothing for your little one or spend the extra money on assembly.


Either way for all the features we discussed in this article including the Hydraulic rear brake, fully enclosed footwells, working headlights, twistgrip throttle, off-road tyres and more, you’re certainly getting value for money!

We’ve got plenty of T-Max Roughriders in stock and ready to be ridden, so what are you waiting for? Pick your colour and model and get excited to ride this amazing quad bike!

Revisiting The Funkart Pro!

19 March 2021 10:16



Last year we launched the brand new go-kart, Funkart Pro and it proved to be a success with our customers.


Now we’re revisiting the Funkart Pro as it’s one of our favourite products we have in stock and want to shed some light as to why and why we also think you should seriously consider getting one for your kids.


Hint, they are awesome!


Your Choice Between Petrol And Electric

Why only have the choice of one, when you can have two?


For smaller riders aged 6+, you may want to ride around your garden in a Funkart whilst not disturbing your neighbours, the electric Funkart Pro is quiet and allows for your kids to ride for hours without causing a fuss.


But if your kids are wanting to take their Funkart to a race track or a dirt track, you might find that the petrol version is what you’re looking for to feel the engine roaring behind you!


Either way, whichever model you choose, your kids will have lots of fun!


Ready To Ride

Funkart Pro’s come with a “Ready To Ride” status, with free assembly.


This means that we will assemble and test your Funkart before we dispatch it, to make sure everything is working as it should, so all you need to do is take it off the pallet, maybe charge it up or add petrol to the tank and start it up to ride!


But before you do, be sure that you’ve bought the correct safety gear before your kid's ride.


Fun, Safe And CE Approved

We know more than anyone the dangers of riding our products without responsibility.


Not wearing the correct safety equipment, riding reckless and being dangerous can all lead to accidents that could have otherwise been prevented.


We control as much of this as possible by giving the parents two speed settings, high (30km/h) and low (25km/h).


This means you can control how fast your kids go on the Funkart Pro to match their experience and confidence levels.


Not only that but the Funkart Pro is CE Approved, which means that it has been thoroughly tried and tested and meets EU safety, health and environmental protection requirements.


Get Yours Today!

We’ve got many Funkart Pros in stock and ready to buy.


You could buy today and ride tomorrow!


So take a look at the range online and get yours now.

Time To Get Your FunBikes Ready For Spring / Summer

10 March 2021 11:55



Spring and Summer are nearly here! And now is the time to start thinking about getting your FunBikes vehicles out, cleaned and raring to go!


In this quick, handy guide, we’ll walk you through the steps you should take to make sure everything is intact and ready to go.


Where To Begin?

The first thing you want to do is to go and pull the covers off your FunBikes and see what state they’re in.


Take it out of storage and move it onto the garden, take a good look around the vehicle and see if you can see any obvious issues right off the bat.


Does any oil need to be applied anywhere? Do any bolts need tightening? Do the tyres need pumping up?


If you have an electric vehicle then you probably want to test the battery and charge it up if it’s flat.


If you have a petrol motor, then you may need to go get some petrol to fill the tank up.


If you’ve recently charged the battery or put some petrol in the vehicle, then you’re ready to start it up to see if everything is in full working order, which, we would expect it to be.


Starting It Up

So you’ve charged the battery up or you’ve got a tank full of petrol. Now it’s time to start it up and give it a quick test ride. Just to see if the power, steering and brakes are all working as they should.


More than likely, everything will be working absolutely fine and as it should.


But It’s just always a good idea to spend a little extra time making sure that your kids quad bike, pit bike, dirt bike, buggy or any product is all ready to go!


Finish Up

This is only a quick-guide after all as there may be nothing wrong with your vehicle or it may have a few issues that (at this stage) we can’t advise on.


But one of the last things you’ll want to do is give your FunBikes a good wash down!


It’s always good to make sure that your vehicles are clean for your kids to jump on them and start riding!


Not only that, but it’s also good maintenance to keep the vehicle clean and looking its best!


And doing these regular maintenance checks and cleaning the vehicle after use (or before use if been put away for a long period of time) can help the longevity of the vehicle.


All that’s left is to plan a trip out with the family so your kids can enjoy their quad bike, pit bike, dirt bike, buggy or whichever vehicle they have!


Need Extra Help?

If you do encounter any issues with your vehicles, get in touch with us today!


Our support team are always on-hand to help answer any questions you may have and to best advise.


We can’t guarantee that we’ll know how to fix the problems you’re having, but we’ll certainly do our best to advise and help as much as we can.


Otherwise, get out there with the family and start enjoying the beautiful Spring and Summer weather!

The Shark is also quiet, making it ideal for home garden use, and is extremely robust.

The 200cc engine has enough power to carry two passengers with ease over all sorts of tough terrain. Fitted with twin seats with seat belts, allowing two riders to enjoy a great but safe off-road experience.

The Mud Rocks Trail Blazer 150

The Mud Rocks Trailblazer 150 has been eagerly anticipated since the launch of the smaller Trailblazer last year.


The new Trailblazer 150 is a full-size buggy suitable for adults and teenagers alike. It is powered by a tried and tested GY6 150cc engine that has been powering power sports products for decades.


The Trailblazer 150 is a must-have for all budding off-road driving enthusiasts.

Where Are The Best Places To Ride My Quad Bike?

24 February 2021 11:05


Our customers often get in touch to ask us, where they can actually ride their quad bikes once they buy them.


And our answer is usually the same.


If you have a road legal quad bike then you’re allowed by law, to ride your quad bike on the road.


But that mostly applies to adults. As children should not be allowed to ride on the road without a drivers licence and be under the age of 17.


With that being said, there are still plenty of places your children can ride their quad bikes and in this article, we’ll look at some places to go, just to give you an idea!

In Your Garden

Perhaps the most obvious place that comes to mind is your garden.


Your child won’t be disturbed and if they’re playing with their friends, then it’s just as enjoyable for them, no matter where they are.


Furthermore, you can keep your eye on them, especially if they have an accident and hurt themselves.


In order to prevent any accidents though, you should definitely buy all the necessary equipment and protection for peace of mind on your part and their own safety for theirs.

In A Forest

If you live in an area where you live near a lot of forests where people and families often go for walks, why not take the quad bike there for your child to drive around on?


We would suggest calling ahead before you do go and double-check that you're allowed to ride your quad bike.


But we would imagine as long as they don’t harm nature or ruin the landscape with the quad bike, this shouldn’t be a problem.


We would only suggest taking electric quad bikes as with petrol quad bikes can be quite noisy, especially for other people who are walking.


So it’s important to respect other walkers and families.


If you have a petrol quad bike, you could also look for dirt tracks where, quad bikes, dirt bikes and alike are all welcome to make as much noise and have as much fun as possible!

On Holiday

Depending on where you go on holiday, especially if it’s in the UK, some holiday sites may allow you to ride your own quad bikes.


Just to be sure, we would advise calling your holiday park ahead of time to double-check that it is indeed allowed as it may be up to the discretion of the individual parks.


But having a quad bike, especially at getaway parks such as Center Parcs, is a great way to have fun and get around the village!


Again, we would imagine that these parks only allow for electric quad bikes to be brought onto their park and it's best calling ahead just so you know the rules on the park.


So for petrolheads, you may need to think outside the box. But here we would say Google is your best friend to find local places to drive your petrol quad bike.


Ready To Ride?

This was just a quick article to give you an idea of where you can ride your quad bikes once you get them.


We would always suggest giving the places a call ahead of time, just so that you know the rules and regulations. As the last thing you’d want is to turn up only to be not allowed in the forest or holiday park on your quad bikes.


So be sure to call ahead and check!


For all quad bikes, electric and petrol and safety gear, take a look at our wide range online today at FunBikes.

3 Things You Should Know Before Riding A Pit Bike

17 February 2021 02:06



If your child has never ridden a pit bike before but they’re convinced that this is what they want to do with their life, then there are things you need to know before jumping on the bike.


Entry-level pit bikes such as the M2R Racing KX110F and the KX125 pit bikes offer a complete introductory level into the world of motocross.


But at the end of the day, they’re still pit bikes, with a powerful engine and should be treated with responsibility and respect.


In this article, we’ll take a look at 3 things you should know before riding a pit bike.


Don’t Go Cheap On Safety Equipment

First and foremost, safety should be your number one concern and factor.


And we understand, you’ve spent all this money on a brand new pit bike for your son or daughter that, you want to save money where you can.


But safety gear should not be it. We would argue that you should spend as much money as you can afford on the safety gear first and then buy the pit bike afterwards.


That’s because you cannot put a price on safety. Helmets, goggles, riders outfit, elbow and knee pads, gloves and boots. These will all help keep your child safe when riding a pit bike. Because it is a motorbike, after all, just a smaller, entry-level version.


It’s NOT Like Riding A Bike

Many people jump on a pit bike or a dirt bike thinking that it’ll be similar to riding a traditional bicycle, this couldn’t be further from the truth.


When you sit on a bicycle your weight is on your bum as you sit and ride throughout the countryside or wherever you may be cycling.


When you sit on a pit bike, you don’t want to have all your weight on your bum, instead, you want to lean forward and distribute the weight evenly across the bike so you have more control of the bike and its movements.


Don’t just turn with your arms and hands, also turn your body slightly to mimic movements on a normal motorbike, this will help develop the fundamentals of riding a motorbike if your child wants to go that far up.


Now, we’re not saying knee to the ground here! But rather start to have your body in tune with the movements you make with the bike to help you when you get your next dirt bike or motorbike.


Sit comfortably and don’t sit too far back as you would on a bicycle, sit a little more forward, giving you more control over the bike as you ride.


Practice With The Bike Off

There’s nothing wrong with sitting on your brand new pit bike, learning how things work with the power turned off. And in fact, we’d encourage it! 

Get used to the pit bike, the seat, the handlebars, the clutch, everything. Practice changing gears, practice your body movements and how you’ll sit on the bike.


Then, whenever you feel comfortable and ready to do so, take the bike outside (Mum and Dad might be a little bit upset with you if you start the bike up in the living room!) and put into practice what you’ve been doing with the bike turned off.


Shop The Entry-Level Pit Bike Range

The M2R Racing KX110F and KXF125 are two great entry-level pit bikes to start out with. But it’s not just those, we’ve got a wide range of pit bikes in stock and available at FunBikes.


So take a look online and get yours today!

Reviewing The Gotrax GXLV2

12 February 2021 03:22




The Gotrax GXLV2 is a special electric scooter, as far as we’re concerned it’s one of the best electric scooters on the market today.


And this statement can be backed up by mentioning that it’s the #1 best selling electric scooter in the US and across the world.


And with a statement that big, it only made sense for us to add it to our collection here at FunBikes!


We always want to bring our customers the very best products from quad bikes to dirt bikes and buggies to electric scooters. And the Gotrax GXLV2 is the latest addition to our online shop.


In this article, we’ll be reviewing the Gotrax GXLV2 and looking at just some of the standout features this electric scooter has to offer.

The Onboard Digital Display

We love the digital display on this scooter, easily manage everything from cruise control, battery life to your headlights if riding around at night.


And from this amazing review from TechRadar, we know that the lower end electric scooters don’t have a digital display quite as good as the one on the GXLV2.


See how fast you’re going vs the battery life so you can push the GXLV2 to it’s limits or be more conservative to have enough juice left to get back home, all at your fingertips of the digital display!

Speed, Charge And Distance

Speaking of speed, how fast can this scooter go you might be asking yourself? The GXLV2 can reach speeds of up to 15.5 mph, perfect for long road cruising and enjoying a ride out with friends or family.


As for charging capabilities, a 3-4 hour charge is all this scooter needs to be able to head on out the door, and ride!


You can go up to 12 miles on a single charge, so we’d suggest considering turning around when you reach 6 miles, just to be safe that you can get back home!

Amazing Value For Money

So let’s wrap up. The digital display, the speed, charge and distance and, not to mention all the other amazing features that the GXLV2 has. We think it’s excellent value for money.


And right now, we’ve dropped the price on these scooters from £415 to just £299! A bargain if you ask us!


Still need convincing? Here are some more features to help you make the right decision.

  • Dual braking system

  • 14-degree incline capability

  • One-step folding system

  • 250 motor with 36v Lithium 5.2ah battery

Hopefully, by now that should have given you a really good overview of the Gotrax GXLV2 and whether you choose to buy this electric scooter or not is completely up to you.


But for the current price of £299, mixed with some of these fantastic scooters that you probably won’t find anywhere else in an affordable scooter, you might want to consider the features and benefits one more time!

Reviewing The Mashed Up Stunt Scooter Range

05 February 2021 10:14



We know we talk a lot about our fantastic range of electric scooters.


But did you know we also sell stunt scooters?


Mashed Up Scooters are some of the best stunt scooters on the market and perfect for taking to a skate park to try out your tricks or practice new ones!


In this article, we’ll take a look at the Stunt Pro and the Extreme scooters from Mashed Up Scooters and let you know why you should consider buying them.

The Vibrant Colours


The first thing you’ll probably notice about Mashed Up scooters are the vibrant range of colours these scooters come in.


From red, blue and green to purple, white and the seriously cool neo chrome rainbow colour that happens to be our customers’ favourite.


The neochrome rainbow is very rarely in stock, so you have to act fast to get yours when you see it available to order!


But that’s not to take anything away from any of the other colours, the white scooter is for those who want more of a serious and professional look.


Whereas the purple, red and blue of the Extreme stunt scooter just look really stunning with the Mashed Up logo on the deck and the colours stand out.



The Cool Design


Speaking of the design, you’ll notice the Y-Style Chromoly construction reinforced handlebar for all the scooters which help keep a firm grip of the handlebars and gives you a full range of steering in a sharp and concise manner.


The Alu Core PU cast wheels are so durable that they can handle landing the hardest tricks or riding for hours on various streets, skate parks and more.


And talking of the durability, these scooters are made to take all the punishment you give it when learning how to ride a scooter or how to do a new trick. We know it takes a few tries before you eventually land it, and that’s why Mashed Up have thought of this, to design a scooter than can be crashed, trashed, punished and will continue to perform again and again!

The Best Price


These scooters are serious value for money!


The features, the design, the colours and the durability means that for what you pay, these scooters can last your kids up until they grow out of riding their scooter.


The Mashed Up Stunt Pro scooter is currently just £39.90 reduced from £60! So make these huge savings and get your Stunt Pro today.


The Extreme scooter on the other hand is currently £129.90 reduced from £180! But with the wide range of colours (come on, the neo chrome rainbow colour is just outstanding!) and the features this scooter comes with, we believe is worth every penny for the amount of use your kids will get out of these scooters and how long they’ll last.


So don’t waste time, get your Mashed Up Scooters online at FunBikes today!

The M2R Pit Bike Range

29 January 2021 11:06



Whatever you’re looking for in a pit bike, we’re sure you can find it in the M2R Pit Bike range online at FunBikes today!


In this article, we’ll walk you through all the different M2R pit bikes we have available online and why you should consider owning one of these fantastic bikes.

M2R KX110F

The M2R KX110F is our entry-level pit bike in the M2R range. For parents who are on a tight budget, you’re getting a fantastic bike that’s extremely good value for money!


With features such as a hydraulic rear shock absorber, hydraulic oil filled forks and with a 110cc High-Performance 4-Stroke Engine, this pit bike can still battle with the best of them!

M2R KXF125

The M2R KXF125 is ideal for teenagers and small adults. Bringing some of the same features from the KX110F, this pit bike can reach speeds of up to 35-40 mph and is a very capable bike even in the worst conditions.


It comes with a higher output engine with 120cc capacity, meaning this bike is suited to riders looking for more of a thrill!

M2R RF125

The M2R RF125 is a great introductory pit bike to the RF range for those who are serious about wanting to learn how to ride a motorbike or for those looking for a recreational experience.


The RF range comes as standard with a strengthened CRF110 frame and some nice aesthetical touches that are exclusive to this particular range.

M2R RF140

The M2R RF140 adds in that extra power that you’re missing in the RF125 but keeps most of the same features such as the snapback levers and gripper seat, spring adjustable rear shock absorber, extended swing arm and the reliability you would expect from a YX 4-stroke engine.


So if your teen or young adult is at a more experienced stage, then the RF140 might be the bike for them!

M2R RF160

The M2R RF160 is the top end range of the RF series by M2R and offers 160cc of power!


As with the RF125 and RF140, they all offer most of the same features across the board, the main difference is the YX Motorsport 160cc engine size which is fitted for pure performance!

M2R KMXR125

The M2R KMXR125 is more for adults and teenagers than it is for younger teenagers.


If you were looking for an entry-level bike, we would suggest the KX110F or KXF125. However, the KMXR125 offers intermediate riders a chance to really hone their skills after gaining their confidence to be able to move onto these bigger and more powerful bikes.

M2R KMXR160

Finally, we have the M2R KMXR160, similar to the KMXR125, this bike should be treated with the respect it deserves!


Some of the features include a YX Motorsport 160cc 4-stroke engine, a toned gripped seat and vented disc brakes to help you stop when going at fast speeds.


Ideal for the more experienced riders who are verging on the expert status!
