“Environmentally friendly, child-friendly and future-oriented” is how the ADAC advertises its new and all-electric competition series for kids in trial sports. Trial driving is not about speed, but about driving through marked obstacle courses – in the case of the ADAC E-Kids Cup on electric children’s motorcycles. So the focus is on skill, coordination and technique.

E-trials have many advantages

With the electric trial bikes, there are many advantages for the little riders: speed, power and responsiveness can be infinitely adjusted and thus optimally adapted to the driving ability and the ratio of rider to vehicle weight. Since the e-trial bikes are so small, even children of walking age can complete their first driving lessons with them than from around 2.5 years of age. Of course, they do not take part in the competition.

Children between the ages of 6 and 10 can take part in the ADAC E-Kids Cup – regardless of whether they are beginners or the king of balance.

The parental mechanics can also look forward to the electric trial bikes, as there is no need to clean spark plugs or carburetors or change the oil. According to the ADAC Wurttemberg, the maintenance effort corresponds to the maintenance of a bicycle. An e-trial can also be transported on the bike rack of the trailer coupling or in the trunk, because no liquids can escape.

In total, the children drive 15 to 24 sections on meadows or forest floor. Depending on their previous experience, the participants are divided into classes. Who makes the fewest mistakes wins. Errors are, for example: leaning on the ground with your feet, tipping over the motorcycle or driving around a marking.

Who can take part?

Children aged 6 to 10 years (born 2013 to 2009), from beginners to the king of balance. Every child who competes needs: a CE-certified electric trial motorcycle, safety helmet with test standard ECE 22-05, back protector, breastplate, gloves, sturdy shoes and a parent or guardian at their side.
