Balance Bikes are typically used as alternatives for training wheels and tricycles as they typically provide a cheaper and more adjustable option, with many models having adjustable handle bars and seat heights to allow for growth with kids.
Balance bikes all come in a 12 inch wheel size and are suitable to buy for kids as little as 18 months old all the way up to 5 years old. Unlike standard 12 inch bikes, balance bikes are two wheeled bikes without pedals that allow children to sit and coast to help them develop the balance and skills required to ride a typical kids bikes.
Balance bikes are also known as glider bikes, run bikes, pedal less bikes, and strider bikes for their pedal-less design and their ability to ride over rocks, dirt, curbs, and uneven surfaces with ease. Balance bikes are designed to teach toddlers and children the fundamentals of cycling. With time spent on these bikes, toddlers and kids can learn to safely coast, ride, and jump with little to no assistance from their parents.
