Our lightweight balance bikes are the best training tool to teach toddlers to ride a bike without having to use training wheels.
This revolutionary balance bike converts to a child's first pedal bike with an attachable pedal kit once your child learns to balance.
This revolutionary larger balance bike converts to a child's first pedal bike with an add-on pedal kit once your child masters balance.
From its super-lightweight all alloy frame (Rookie12 = 2.93kgs) to the all-terrain air tyres for a smoother, quieter ride, right up to the child-specific grips offering comfort and minimized slippage. The NextGen Rookie range of kids balance bikes has been designed from the ground up to be as safe as possible for kids.
Our Rookie balance bike geometry makes the bike less intimidating, safer, and easier to ride without having the complexities of learning to pedal first. It puts kids in control. With a low standover height to help boost confidence while learning, the Rookie geometry has been optimized for growing kid's bodies. Combined with adjustable components you can dial in the best fit for your child.
In addition to our unique confidence-inspiring low geometry, we've carefully selected a complete range of custom child-specific components, which are tailored to each size bike. This ranges from, lightweight handlebars with non-slip grips, to our kid-specific short-reach brake levers to sealed bearing bottom brackets. Because kids all ride through mud and muck and don’t clean their bikes, we built our Kidvelo bottom brackets to keep the dirt out. The headset and hubs also feature durable, maintenance-free, silky smooth bearings. It's built kid tough.
Weight is one of the most critical factors in a child’s success and enjoyment in learning to ride. Our bikes weigh 30% less than most children’s bikes. Our featherweight alloy goes into both our frames and forks, which not only shaves weight off the bike but also improves overall handling without sacrificing strength. While most kid's bikes sold at big box stores don't like to display their bike weights actively, we at Kidvelo, design our bikes around being ultra-lightweight as a standard design feature. For instance, our Rookie12 only weighs 2.93kgs so performance is built into our DNA.
Balance bikes seem pretty simple, but everything from tyre type to brakes and even sizing a balance bike can quickly get complicated!
