Best Balance Bike for Toddlers

The Kidvelo Rookie 12 Balance Bike in Azure Blue is designed in Sydney, Australia, to provide your child with the perfect foundation for a lifetime of riding. We designed the Rookie 12″ bike to be easy to ride and learn how to ride with a lightweight aluminum frame, fully adjustable seat height and handlebar height, a real headset, and durable air-filled tires. Weighing in at 2.93kgs, our Rookie 12 Bike is one of the lightest balance bikes in Australia.

Learning to ride a balance bike before pedals are introduced speeds up the transition to a pedal bike. It is far easier to learn one new skill than to learn 3 at one time (such as balance, pedaling, and braking), especially if you are 2 years old.

The Rookie 12 stacks up well against the competition, with good looks, smart design, safety features that Mom and Dad will appreciate, and a price that’s solidly in line with other 12” balance bikes on the market today.

Kid Specific Geometry

Kidvelo Rookie 12 Inch Balance Bike 2

The Perfect fit gets your little one riding sooner, better, safer.

All Kidvelo bikes feature quick-adjust seat post clamps.

Seat height can be adjusted quickly, easily, and without tools. So when kids are ready for a higher seat, you can accommodate them in seconds.

Lightweight Design

At Kidvelo we believe that a lighter weight bike is a safer bike.

A lighter weight bike is easier to control. We think that’s a good thing. All Kidvelo frames and rigid forks are made of lightweight heat treated 6061 aircraft grade aluminium alloy.

    We purchased the Rookie 12 for our 2-year-old to learn how to balance on a bike; he loves riding it and we are so thrilled with how well this bike is made! It’s light enough for her to pick it up when she inevitably falls, and the geometry is very stable. As if that wasn’t enough, the customer service is top-notch. We love it!!
