What is a Balance Bike?
A kids balance bike has no pedals, gears, chain et cetera and is designed for helping kids and toddlers learn how to "cycle" with balance and steering before moving up. They might be the best option for your child instead of a bike with training wheels if they're a little older, bigger, and more adventurous!
Our range of balance bikes includes toddler-friendly models that are specifically designed to be the best start bikes for your toddler. These bikes feature low seat heights, lightweight frames, and easy-to-grip handlebars, ensuring a comfortable and enjoyable riding experience for even the smallest riders. The best way to get toddlers and tikes started out on two wheels is with a Balance Bike. Designed without any pedals or brakes, a Balance Bike is the perfect first bicycle for young children who can learn to sit and balance on a bike frame without worrying about the complications of pedalling.
Which Balance Bike for Which Age?
Start with balance bike age and use our handy kids sizing chart to measure whether this is the best option for your child. They may require a small balance bike despite being slightly older.
These models are ideal for Kids of the following ages:
- Balance Bikes for Kids Aged 2
- Balance Bikes for Kids Aged 3
- Balance Bikes for Kids Aged 4
- Balance Bikes for Kids Aged 5 who haven't started cycling.
Then, think about what features you'd like to see on your child's balance bike. For example, Bobbin is fairly unique in offering a balance bike with basket and loads of customisable accessories from our range.
