About Balance Bikes

What is a balance bike?

A balance bike is a bike with no pedals and no training wheels, making it a really simple platform for a child to develop strength, coordination, balance, and confidence.

Children who ride bikes with training wheels learn how to pedal, but not to balance, so have to start a lengthy learning process all over again when the training wheels are removed.

How do children ride them when there aren’t any pedals?

 From as early as 18 months, children learn by walking/running whist sitting on their balance bike. As the child grows confidence, they begin to free-wheel by lifting both feet off the ground. Once they begin to do this they have started to gain balance skills!

What ages are your products best for?

 Our bikes and ride-ons are suitable for 18 months to 6 year-olds.

The majority of our bikes range from 2 years upwards, though our Super Junior range starts from 18 months, due to the lower slung frame. Our Kurve range, meanwhile, is best for children aged 3 and up. If you aren’t sure, simply browse our shop by age to discover the products that best suit your child.
