From Balance bike to pedal bike

My oldest boy will be 3 next month. He has An Islabike balance bike and can whizz about on it balancing very confidently. We are looking for his first pedal bike. The Islabike is an obvious choice but is there anything else (possibly a bit cheaper but still fairly light weight) that I should consider?
I can't really comment yet on the Hotrock as we have only had it 2 days. He took to it very quickly and seems to find it easy to ride (I do find it feels heavy compared to his Puky LRM balance bike) He is still too small to get his feet down properly when he stops even with the seatpost cut down.
My little one tried the specialized balance bike and it was too big and heavy versus rothan islabike also true about the pedal bike too
I thought it was a heavy bike, hence going for cnoc 14. He's probably a touch small but hopefully come Xmas and new year his inside leg will be just about ok and grow into it and go pedal power up from his rothan
