Bringing you the balance bikes for the next generation! We offer a wide variety of pedal-less bikes for toddlers ranging from 2-in-1 to convertible with easy steps. Kids learning to ride their first bike need a steady bike that can easily balance on their feet. The bikes at our end have a lower center of gravity to ease such difficulties.
Cycling is a fond childhood memory for everyone, for which starting early is highly advantageous. Buy a balance bike with brakes for your child and help them explore the magic of two-wheelers.
When your child starts to ride on their own, they grow confident. These bikes are suitable for toddlers over eighteen months of age. Smaller bikes in our range are well-suited for their tiny legs and help maintain balance.
Little ones can balance, roll, and learn how to ride a bike with a lower center of gravity and without a drive chain or pedals. Additionally, they can put their feet down when needed, which increases their confidence on a bike (because they feel safe) and reduces scrapes and bumps.
Safety features like helmets, knee & elbow pads, gloves, etc., allow them to put their foot down if they lose their balance while riding. With these structured and convertible balance bikes, your kids get the confidence they need to ride independently.

WHAT'S THE POINT OF A BALANCE BIKE?
1. Balance is Everything
Balance bikes help kids develop and master how to balance.
Kids have a blast riding these bikes because they feel more confident and in control. Plus, children who start learning on these bikes often skip tricycles and stabilizers and hop straight on a pedal bike when they’re big enough!
2. Start Learning Sooner
Your child can use a balance bike as early as 18 months old! The smallest stabilizer bikes are usually too big at this age, but young kids can easily fit them.
3. Gain Confidence and Control
Kids feel more comfortable when they can put their feet on the ground, which is why balance bikes help them gain more confidence on a bike. They can intuitively learn to balance, turn and steer while feeling less likely to fall.
4. Ride Easily on any Terrain
Kids can ride further without getting tired and easily navigate any terrain because balance bikes let kids sit and use their feet to scoot. They can ride on grass, road, and gravel, and they love having the freedom to go where they want!
4. Increased Safety
Balance Bikes are more safe and more fun than regular bikes. Children who ride balance bikes see a decrease in injuries and falls. They are more coordinated, as well as more adept at balancing themselves.
GOT QUESTIONS ABOUT BALANCE BIKES?
The most important factor when choosing a balance bike is finding the right size for your child. The bike size should be based on your child’s age, height, and weight.
As your child grows, you’ll want to change the bike’s seat height and handlebars until your child is ready to move on to a larger bike.
The 14-inch balance bike is good for children 3-6 years old. It helps them get in balance, build endurance, and maintain good posture while riding.
The 18-inch Size balance bikes are ideal for children aged 5 to 8. They are designed for both kids and adults of varying sizes and provide a comfortable ride.
A balance bike is a small two-wheel bicycle with specially designed stabilisers for training and improving balance. It’s a little more expensive than a regular bike but much more fun and rewarding.
The age for kids to start using a balance bike is typically from 18 months. Most balance bikes feature a seat post, and hence a child needs to sit on it for the first time. Once the seat is set, the kids can then move around freely. However, when a kid is under 2, the bike should only be used for fun and exercise, not for learning.
The easiest way to teach your child to ride a balance bike is by letting him hold onto your legs and walk along while balancing himself on his feet. As he gets older, he can gradually be taught to stand on one foot. Alternatively, you can install kids bike trailer or tag-alongs to further boost their confidence being in front of them.
Balance bikes are generally safer and don’t require any training wheels. However, there are a bunch of accessories to further ensure safety for your young lad.
The perfect time to move your kid from a balance bike to a pedal bike is between 5 and 6 years old. This age is when children start to develop motor skills. At this stage, kids should be able to balance on a stationary bike with both feet on the pedals. They should also be able to ride bicycles on the floor without falling off.
