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 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.

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!

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.

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!

However, we stress that you must consider the height, weight and level of skill of the rider before putting them on this bike. After all, it is a motorbike and even if it’s a mini version that’s made for kids, it should still be treated with responsibility and safety.


Mini Quad Bikes

Top 3 Reasons Why We’re Loving Electric Scooters

18 November 2020 12:52



Right now we’re loving electric scooters. They offer so many benefits and they’re fun to ride!


We look at just 3 of the reasons why you should look at buying an electric scooter and why they’re so much fun.


Green



The fact that electric scooters are 100% powered by batteries, makes them brilliant for our environment and helps play a huge role in a greener world.


Because of this, it feels as though we’re drastically reducing our carbon footprint by opting for the electric scooter rather than the car.


Furthermore, they’re quieter than cars or public transport, so in terms of noise pollution, they’re a great option!


Compact



You don’t need to worry about leaving your electric scooter anywhere either as most of our electric scooters are foldable and compact so that you can easily pick them up and take them with you wherever you go.


With cars or bikes, you need to park them up somewhere and then wherever you go, they’re always exposed to theft and damage.


With your electric scooter, you can keep it handy at all times.


Balance



Let’s face it, most of us lead quite a sedentary lifestyle and spend most of our days at work, sat down.


So when you get round to riding your electric scooter, you’ll see that it’s not as easy as it looks!


You need to engage your core and find your balance, both of which can help improve and work towards a healthier lifestyle.


And as you ride your electric scooter, you’ll breathe in the fresh air and see fantastic surroundings (depending on where you take your electric scooter)


Ready To Buy An Electric Scooter?


As you can see, there are so many benefits to riding an electric scooter and it’s easy to see why we’re loving them at the moment!


Take a look at our wide range of adult electric scooters if you’re interested in getting one today, with top brands including Gotrax, Zero and Chaos.

Why You Should Consider Riding An Electric Scooter

13 November 2020 11:41



With the release of the brand new Halo M4 electric scooter, we thought now would be a fantastic time talk about just some of the reasons why you should consider riding an electric scooter.

We're continuously adding more scooters to our adult electric scooter range, as we believe they're practical and deliver on performance, durability and efficiency.

So let's take a look at some of the reasons an electric scooter could be a good investment!

Environmentally Friendly


Looking at the new Halo M4 Electric Scooter which is fully equipped with a 48v 18AH Lithium battery and has a charge time between 6-9 hours, it doesn’t rely on petrol or diesel to run, instead, it runs on the optimal Lithium battery which has an optimum range of 65km.


As technology improves with batteries becoming more powerful, durable and sustainable, it’s easy to see a world that is becoming more environmentally friendly.

Easy Storage And Transportation


One of the key features of most electric scooters, including the Halo M4, is the folding function that allows for easy storage and transportation.


It’s so compact that it can be stored in your home, out the way, so that you can charge it overnight, ready for the next day or for a weekend adventure! Without having to compromise on space.


And this rings true for the Halo M4, with a folding size of L120cm x W23cm x H42cm, it’s incredibly compact and ideal for home storage.

Incredible Value For Money


One of the best points of owning an electric scooter is the one-time big investment you make. With a car, you constantly pay for petrol, car insurance, MOTs, the list is endless!


With an electric scooter, you pay the one-off fee and then that’s it. If you use the scooter a lot, you may eventually need to replace the battery, but this could be years after your original purchase.


So for the price and the features you get, we believe that they’re incredible value for money.


Take a look at our electric scooter range today and with the release of the all-new Halo M4, we think it’s a great time to buy an electric scooter.

The Best Places To Go For A Ride

04 November 2020 04:23


Depending on what FunBikes vehicle you have, you may need to go to different tracks or terrain to really test your FunBike and get the most out of it!


Taking a quad bike to a skate park doesn’t make much sense.


But taking a scooter to a skate park makes perfect sense as you can not only practice your tricks but also test the ability of your scooter at a place that’s made specifically for it.


In this article, we’ll be looking at the best places to take your FunBikes to have fun and get to know your vehicle.

Skate Park


Perfect for scooters, cycles and hoverboards, skate parks aren’t just for skateboarders!


It’s a great place to take your Razor or Mashed Up scooter for a ride. Or even your bicycle. 

This will help you understand how the scooter or cycle rides on smooth surfaces, how you can ride it to get the best performance out of it all while learning and practising your tricks with other like-minded scooter and skate enthusiasts.

Country Walks


Perfect for mini quad bikes, junior quad bikes and mini pit bikes and dirt bikes.


We’d suggest probably only riding electric versions of the quad bikes and pit/dirt bikes instead of the petrol versions.


If it’s a public park you don’t want to disrupt other people who may be walking their animals or are out for a relaxing stroll! So we’d opt-in for the electric quad bikes, pit and dirt bikes.


Furthermore, you don’t want to disturb the nature who lives in the forest such as mice, birds and squirrels.

Dirt Bike Track / Trail


Perfect for petrol versions of pit bikes, dirt bikes, quad bikes, buggies and go-karts.


A dirt bike track, trail or dunes are the perfect places to take your dirt bikes, quad bikes, buggies and go-karts to have lots of fun and push them to their limits!


Depending on where you go, you may find that there are other riders with their own bikes riding around and having fun.

Choose The Right Terrain For Your FunBike


It’s always best to check the specification of your FunBike to see if it can ride off-road or if it’s purely an on-road vehicle. Or in some cases, if it’s only gentle off-road use.


Without knowing this, you may unintentionally damage your vehicle by riding it on the wrong terrain. So it’s always best to check before heading down to a country park, skate park or dirt track.

3 Reasons Junior Quad Bikes Rock

09 October 2020 04:05



We’re back with another article in the “3 Reasons…” series to bring you 3 reasons why junior quads rock!


Your little ones aren’t so little anymore and are starting to outgrow and get too big for their mini quad bikes.


And they’ve ridden it so much that it barely works anymore.


So it might be time to finally get them a brand new junior quad bike.


We can already hear your concerns, “but they’re much bigger, they’re more powerful and they’re more dangerous than mini quad bikes”.


We want to put those concerns to bed by giving you 3 reasons why junior quad bikes rock and why you should make the upgrade today.

The Same Safety Features Still Apply


One of the best things about the mini quad bike range is that you could control how fast the quad bike goes.


Well, the same rules apply for the junior quad bikes as there is a throttle restrictor that comes as standard in most if not all our quad bikes.


So you can still maintain control of how fast the quad bike goes, how much power the quad delivers and how confident your child is on the bike so you can adjust accordingly.

Bigger Bikes & More Choice


The idea is that you buy your child a mini quad bike so that they can work their way through junior all the way up to the real sized adult versions!


Along the way gaining confidence, getting more to grips with their quad bike and overall becoming more and more experienced.


Whilst in the junior quad bike range there are still sizes to suit 5-9-year-olds, there are also quads to suit 10-14-year-olds.


Bikes that are bigger, more powerful and with so many more motor size options, you can truly find the right quad bike for your young roughrider!



Petrol & Electric


You can still choose between electric or petrol quad bikes and that is something we will never take away from you, the choice of which model to suit you and your needs.


Maybe your child enjoys riding around the garden on their electric quad bike, it’s quiet enough that it won’t disturb neighbours but is still as much fun to drive as the petrol version.


Speaking of which, the petrol version does add that realism of riding a real quad bike, because, in fact, your child will actually be riding a real quad bike. The smell of petrol, the roar of the engine. It can help overcome any nervousness or intimidation.


And while both bikes help your child gain confidence, learn the importance of safety and responsibility. It really comes down to personal preference. But we’re happy to give you that choice as opposed to only giving you one model to choose from.

Ready To Buy A Junior Quad Bike?


Take a look at the range and find the quad for your child that you think will suit them best.


Maybe it’s a T-Max Roughrider? Or A Xtrax Sport? Whichever quad bike you choose, you’ll be buying from a trusted supplier who loves our range of quad bikes just as much as you do.


So don’t wait, take a look at the Junior quad bike range and find the next quad bike for your child online today.

The All-New FunBikes MXR 1500w Mini Dirt Bike Is Here!

02 October 2020 03:40


We’ve got a special release for our customers this week. MXR has been releasing much-loved bikes for years now, and the MXR1500 isn’t going to be any different.


With so many features, the MXR1500 is bigger, stronger and has a better specification than any other electric mini dirt bike before.


And what’s better is that the MXR1500 has been released just in time for Christmas!


In this article, we’ll take a look at some of the best features and specs this bike has to offer.


But to be honest, it’s hard to ignore the power and speed this bike has.

The DC Brushless Motor


The MXR1500 dirt bike is powered by one of the best and biggest motors available in this range.


The 1500w motor is powerful and can easily produce as much or as little power as you want, but we’ll talk more about this later.


It’s an upgrade from our 1300w electric MXR motor and with a 48v lithium battery you’ve got even more time to enjoy the ride.


Reach speeds of up to 40km/h and with a range of up to 25km, you can have fun in almost any environment.

Twistgrip Throttle


You might think that a twistgrip throttle should come standard with any dirt bike, it’s almost become expected. And there’s a good reason for it.


One of the most compelling reasons for owning a dirt bike, especially the MXR1500, is to rev the bike and go!


It just adds authenticity and realism to this dirt bike, and it’s important to note this isn’t a ride-on toy and shouldn’t be treated as one.


This is a mini dirt bike that gives your daredevil child the chance to learn how to ride a motorbike from an early age to build up the confidence to go for bigger bikes as they get older.

Speed Dial Settings


One of the most exciting key features this bike has is the throttle response.


Your child (or you) can be in control of how much power you want the bike to deliver.


Is your son or daughter just starting out? Try a soft and gentle setting to help them get to grips of how to handle the bike and how to ride it.


Or are they a seasoned pro? Why not try them on a sporty and aggressive setting so they can push the bike to its limits!


But from your perspective, you can stay in control of how fast you want the bike to go and how well you think your child can handle the different speed settings.

Buy The All New MXR1500 Mini Dirt Bike Today


The FunBikes MXR 1500w 48v Lithium Electric Kids Dirt Bike is online and ready to buy today.
