The first one with gearshiftThe ZLX 18-3 Alu

he PUKY® ZLX 18 Alu is the sporty wheel with 3-speed gearshift for advanced pilots.
Our PUKY® ZLX 18-3 Alu offers advanced children, who already know the basic functions of cycling, a 3-speed gearshift and thus increases the radius of the child. The sporty, cool frame and décor design of the PUKY® ZLX 18-3 Alu, the very light aluminium frame and the high-quality equipment can meet even the highest demands. The suitability for everyday use was somewhat restricted in favor of driving characteristics and weight. Thus, the PUKY® ZLX 18-3 Alu does without a carrier and the very deep entrance in favor of this and a sporty appearance. It is suitable for children from a height of 116 cm upwards. With our ZLX Alu-series too, child-friendly design and ergonomics have been thought through down to the smallest detail. This means that there are no sharp edges on the entire wheel, especially neuralgic areas such as the handlebars and the grips are additionally padded. We deliberately refrain from using a biting V-brake, but instead we use cantilever brakes with our children's bikes which are much better to dose in order to avoid falls in case of abrupt braking. The completely closed chain box not only prevents soiling of the clothing, but also prevents children from reaching into the drive. The PUKY® ZLX 18 Alu is available in black.

Play bicycles
Children are often capable of more than one would expect - if they are only given the opportunity. This is why PUKY® play bikes are designed so safely and thoughtfully that everything works almost by itself and also provides lots of fun. The low step through frame, which makes it easy to get on and off the bike, is not only important in the learning phase. The child-friendly frame geometry guarantees a safe, comfortable and healthy seating position and the PUKY® safety set, which is provided as standard, protects against possible injuries. The robust powder coating, as well as high-quality components, guarantee a long service life.


Suitable for children from 4 years.

True size Size calculator

Suitable for:
from 116 to 130 cm
Step height
from 50 to 58 cm

Basically we offer you three possibilities to determine the size of PUKY vehicles. We always recommend the inner leg length as the most reliable indication. How to determine this can be found here (How to find the right vehicle size). Alternatively, you can also use the height or age of the child as a guide.

Kinder und Uhren dürfen nicht ständig aufgezogen werden: man muß sie auch mal gehen lassen.

Jean Paul (1763 - 1825)

Child-friendly designForm follows function

Children have a smaller field of vision than adults, i.e. they only take in their surrounding with a limited viewing angle. This limitation carries risks, especially in areas close to traffic. For this reason, it is particularly important that children are in the most upright position possible when sitting on a bike. Only a relaxed, upright posture makes it possible for children to perceive their surroundings in an optimum way when riding a bike, which provides the basis for safe driving behaviour. PUKY® takes into account meaningful adjustment ranges for individual growth phases and thereby ensures a useful working life. Because children's centre of gravity, unlike that of adults, is located in the upper half of the body, it is also especially important to design the frame geometry so that a children's bicycle exhibits a particularly balanced driving behaviour. The child-friendly positioning of the pedal bearings and the optimal distance between saddle and handlebars are additional important factors for a child-friendly frame geometry.

Safety handlebar gripsEasy going!

Safety and child friendliness are key points of all PUKY® vehicles. So PUKY® was the first manufacturer who built special safety handlebar grips with large baffles. These protect hands against injuries when an accident happens or when the child should fall on the handlebar. At the same time, the safety handlebar prevent unwanted lateral slipping. The grip surface provides good grip and the small diameter is suitable for children's hands and allows a complete gripping. An air chamber is integrated to absorb load peaks caused by vibrations. It prevents numbness during longer journeys.

Shimano 3-speed hubSturdy and low-maintenance

Extremely simple and logical to operate - this makes the Shimano 3-speed hub the ideal entry gear for children! With it, a gear change is also possible without stepping or standing. A highly resilient, stepped planetary gearhead ensures long, trouble-free operation. The shift shock absorber ensures smooth gear changes when shifting under load.

Schwalbe Black Jack Offroad tyresOffroad ready

Schwalbes Black Jack is the star of the Active Line. Versatile tread pattern with good grip and comfortable rolling performance. Lightweight thanks to the LiteSkin side wall and high-quality carcass. The aggressive tread pattern is a perfect combination of high traction and low rolling resistance. This means that this cross-country all-rounder is ideally equipped for every terrain.

Sporty aluminium frameNot only sporty but light...

Aluminium has long been used as a frame material for bicycles. Lightweight, rugged and rustproof - three major advantages that distinguish aluminium over steel. Our ZLX models are characterised by a modern, very light aluminium frame in a sporty diamond profile. High stability combined with the best weight are essential characteristics.

Impact-resistant powder coatingQuality made in Wülfrath

The extremely impact-resistant and durable powder coating is applied by us in our own factory in Wülfrath on all our vehicles. It encases the metal components like a plastic coating and is UV and weather resistant and of course free of toxins and pollutants.
