The Joy of Cycling

The Kopenhagen Balloon Gents bike is made to make your ride an absolute pleasure:

  • The upright riding position means no stress on lower back or shoulders – it’s as comfortable as sitting in a chair!
  • The frame comes in three sizes – 54/57/61 cm – so you can choose what fits your height perfectly.
  • A sprung real leather Velorbis saddle in a choice of three colours will gradually mould itself to your own shape giving the most perfect seat. Alternatively, a gel saddle in black or brown has a natural softness to give a great ride.
  • Top quality Schwalbe balloon tyres are 60 mm wide to give extra suspension over bumps and lumps in the road. They come in a choice of brown or black.
  • The frame, fork, mud-guards, chain guards and wheel rims can be coloured to your own specification from a choice of over 200 shades.
  • Unlike most traditional bikes, we make our frames from strong but lightweight Chromoly steel meaning that the bike weighs only 17 kg (without extras) making it much easier to manoeuvre.

Superb Functionality

Just as you’d imagine, the Kopenhagen Balloon Gents bike is a masterclass in functionality.

  • Shimano Nexus gears are internal and therefore low maintenance as protected from the elements and are available in 1, 3 and 7 speed. The 7 gear bikes have an option of either pedal brakes or handlebar brakes.
  • Depending on what you generally need to carry, there are luggage options of steel rear carrier with bag hook, exclusive front wooden tray, wooden crate (shallow or deep) or different baskets so your shopping, briefcase or gym kit can be carried with ease.
  • A chain cover and leather mud flaps mean you arrive at your destination free from splashes, oil or dirt from the road.
  • The Kopenhagen Balloon Gents is compatible with a Yepp child seat to carry the little one with you.
  • The double kick-stand gives your bike extra stability when pa
  • The tyres use anti-puncture technology.

Safety First!

We like to look after our bike owners so the Kopenhagen Balloon Gents bike has the following safety features:

  • The upright seating position gives you a great view of your surroundings and the other traffic on the road.
  • The bike comes with the option of either battery powered or internal dynamo powered front and back lights.
  • A Ding Dong bell is included and can be coloured to whatever shade you desire.
  • The bike comes with an Axa Solid integrated frame lock with key

Added Extras

We all have different needs and some people might want something extra added to their Kopenhagen Balloon Gents bike.  Here are just some of the possibilities.

  • If you have a longer commute or live in a hillier environment, why not take the option of adding an electric motor to your bike? A Pendix eDrive system can be added with a choice of two sizes of removable lithium battery (300AH or 500AH), coloured to match your frame.
  • Make your bike a mobile billboard by adding a logo plate above the back wheel.


The Kopenhagen Balloon Gents bike is a great option but is it right for you?  See how it compares to others:

The Balloon bike has the distinctive 60mm wide tyres that hold more air and so give better suspension on bumpy roads but if you are lucky enough to live in somewhere with nice flat cycle paths, then maybe the Kopenhagen Classic Gents with its standard 50mm tyres is good for you.  Apart from the tyres, it’s pretty much the same stylish ride!
