They're all of the bikes we have ideal for 4 year olds. Choosing the right type of bike for your kids is dependent on their age, size and leg measurements. All of our bikes come with an adjustable seat, meaning your kids will be able to use both the maximum and minimum seat height available. This means they'll be able to keep a comfortable upright position. 

Once your kids get used to a balance bike and then a road bike, they'll soon enough be able to advance to a mountain bike and of course an adult bike as they get older. Choosing the right bike size is a task we've made easy for you!


Best Accessories

Kids bike accessories are maybe the most exciting part of choosing a new bike. Choosing a new helmet, water bottle, handlebar tassels and more is going to make your child want to ride their bike even more! Soon enough, they'll be eager to get on a fun and exciting biking journey.
