Balance bike

Kokua

Established 1997

Founded in 1997 by Rolf Mertens, the Kokua bike company manufactures the most iconic balance bike, the likeabike. The story is as straightforward as it is heartwarming: a father puts all his technical knowhow and endurance in building a special bike without pedals for his little sons. The company is still family owned by the Mertens family.
