Balance and coordination are developed safely and effectively with the Rookie balance bike, which does not require any stabilizers or training wheels to ride our bikes.

Convertible Balance Bikes by Kidvelo

Create your first childhood memories on the Rookie Balance Bike. Designed for toddlers as training bicycles, the Kidvelo Rookie Balance Bike range helps toddlers as young as 2 years old learn how to ride a bike without needing stabilizers or training wheels ever again.

If you have a little one between the ages of 18 months and 8 years old, there’s going to be a point in their lives where they’ll want to learn how to ride a bike. Some so-called ‘kid’s bikes’ are large, heavy, and bulky and can take the fun and safety out of learning how to balance and ride on a bike.

Our Rookie range of balance bikes are different. With a lower center of gravity and the drive chain and pedals removed, this enables little ones to balance, roll and learn how to ride a bike with the safety feature of being able to put their feet down when they need to. This not only leads to greater confidence on a bike (because they feel safe) but also fewer scrapes, bumps, and tears.

If you have an active little one that loves being outside then our range of lightweight balance bikes might be just the thing they need. We have balance bikes for boys and girls and balance to first pedal bikes to suit a range of ages from 18 months through to 8-year-olds.

LIFE IS MORE FUN ON TWO WHEELS

Frequently Asked Questions About Balance Bikes?

The perfect balance bike for kids 2 to 8 years old is our Rookie balance bike for kids. These new kids balance bikes teaches your toddler to ride a bike at the early age of 18 months. We have a balance bike for every child's instant riding success at Kidvelo.

Balance bikes are perfect for toddlers and an amazing way to introduce your little one to the wonderful world of cycling. Balance bikes are just like kids/ toddlers' bikes without a drivetrain or pedals. Our balance bikes are lighter and small-wheeled compared to other kid's bikes, making them suitable for small hands and bodies. A Kidvelo balance bike is a fantastic way to help them transition into unsupported pedal bikes when they get a little older.

A Kidvelo balance bike is a fantastic way to help them transition into unsupported pedal bikes when they get a little older.

A Kidvelo Balance bike is best suited to toddlers and children ages 18 months to 8 years old. Your child should get on a balance bike once he or she is confidently walking and tall enough to handle the frame on their own.
When it comes to learning to ride a bike, slow and steady really wins, and our Rookie balance bikes are an excellent new way of helping young and older children develop the motor skills and build the strength they need to zoom along the bike path with the rest of the family. At www.kidvelobikes.com you can shop online for the best kid's balance bikes in Australia.

Due to the low height of balance bikes, kids can reach the ground with their feet. In order to move forward, they push off the ground and begin by walking the bike, then progress to running, striding, and gliding. Once they master their balance, they can begin pedaling. The balance bike can be ridden for as long as kids like, so there's no rush. With the assurance that their feet are on the ground, balance bikes also teach kids how to steer properly. Compared to traditional pedal bikes with stabilizers/training wheels, balance bikes allow kids to become independent much earlier.
Due to their inherent simplicity, they are lighter and easier to understand for young children. For kids, balance bikes are very intuitive and they simply grab the bike and go, no instructions required! With pedaling removed from the mix, kids can concentrate on balancing the bike, which is a more challenging and nuanced skill.
Your child will be very safe on a balance bike. The bikes are intuitive for kids to use, giving them a sense of security. Understanding something makes us less afraid of it. It is also very easy to maintain balance bikes, so there are less chances of something going wrong. Nevertheless, we recommend wearing a helmet at all times!
Compared to a normal bike with training wheels (aka stabilizers or training wheels), a balance bike teaches your child the fundamental skills of balance and coordination.
Because a balance bike requires the child to lean and steer actively, it promotes independent cycling.
Children who used balance bikes only at a younger age were able to cycle independently, compared to those who used bikes with stabilizers.

It is important for your child to be able to sit with their feet flat on the ground while riding the bike. Make sure your child's inseam is the right size by measuring it with shoes on. The saddle should be the same length or slightly longer than the minimum saddle on the bike. Choose a bigger bike if your child's inseam is longer than the saddle height of the bike! If your child leans slightly forward, their torso should be able to reach the handlebars comfortably. A balance bike with a longer arm reach will allow your child to go faster and maintain an aggressive, forward-leaning stance. See if your child will fit on the Rookie balance bike by checking out our sizing page.

We at Kidvelo bikes strive to create a fun and easy learning experience for you and your child. While toddlers on our Rookie 12" balance bike from 18 months to 3 years of age prefer to stop and slow down with their feet instead of using the handbrake. Our older riders once they start using a pedal bike it will no longer be safe for them to use their feet. Preparing your child with front and rear handbrakes on their convertible balance bike first enables an easy, fun, and safe transition to their first pedal bike. Having fewer new things to learn reduces stress and makes learning more enjoyable and most importantly safer for a first time rider.

Physically and developmentally disabled children often have difficulties coordinating balance, pedaling, and steering. With a balance bike, kids with special needs can learn to glide along independently much more easily than with a pedal bike. Personal development and confidence building are greatly enhanced by its independence.
In addition to being great exercise, a balance bike improves motor skills as well.
Due to the Rookie's unique design, it can be used for many years as a balance bike. It may be possible for your child to use it for even longer if they have a slower growth rate (such as those with Down syndrome). When kids have their feet on the ground, they are fully supported by the saddle, which makes it even easier than walking for them. Due to its lightweight, the Rookie is much easier to push forward and steer than a traditional kids bike.

Balance bikes are great for gliding around, but eventually, your child will want to start pedaling.
Once your child has mastered the skills needed to glide the balance bike confidently and safely, they are probably ready to pedal.
While pedaling adds a new skill to learn, it may still take them time to adjust before they can pedal confidently. Wearing a helmet and practicing pedaling in a safe place away from obstacles and traffic is important.
With the option to attach easy-ride pedals, the Rookie balance bike makes the transition from balance bike to pedal bike easier. As a result, your child will have an easier time learning to pedal on a bike they're already familiar with.

In contrast to traditional bikes, balance bikes are made specifically for children to glide rather than ride them. In this case, pedals would only interfere with your child's balance as they are still in balance mode.
Unlike other balance bikes, the Kidvelo Rookie 14" balance bike and 18" balance bike range can easily be converted into pedal bikes.
Simply attach the easy-ride pedals when your child is ready to ride independently, and it converts into a standard pedal bike.

Toddlers will benefit greatly from balance bikes as they will develop their coordination and motor skills as well as becoming independent and able to explore on their own.
A balance bike is a very natural thing for toddlers to use and will give them extra confidence as they progress.
The best balance bike for a toddler (2/3 year old) should combine safety & stability with aesthetic appeal. It will be difficult to get your child to try out the bike if he or she doesn't like how it looks.
A well-built bike that won't fall apart would probably be a factor in parents' decisions.
Kidvelo's unique 2 in 1 design achieves this balance. Your child will love riding the balance bike, while you’ll have the assurance of knowing it’s helping them learn to cycle easier and safer.

On a balance bike, the saddle should be set so the child's feet are flat on the ground.
There is usually a quick release seat clamp on decent balance bikes so you can easily adjust the seat. With their torsos angled slightly forward, they should be able to reach the handlebars comfortably.

It may seem unbelievable, but there are still people who believe balance bikes are a scam. Unsuspecting parents believe balance bikes are merely marketing ploys.
Besides being ideal for small children who can't cycle yet, balance bikes are also perfect for older children. Children can enjoy balance bikes because they are low to the ground, lightweight, and easy too manoeuvre.
Before transitioning to a pedal bike, your child should learn coordination and balance on a balance bike. Your child is in a critical stage of physical development at this point. You will be able to use the skills your child learns on a balance bike in a variety of other activities as well.

Visit a bike shop with knowledgeable staff or talk to your friends, read reviews, or watch some YouTube videos.
Since some bloggers recommend bikes from stores with affiliate links, such as Amazon, a third-party review may not be as biased as a blogger's endorsement.
Instead of looking at just the concept of the balance bike, look for reviews that test its quality and function. There have been many reviews over the years that say "this balance bike is better than a normal bike" but they fail to consider whether the bike actually functions well.
Take into account the bike's long-term value. You won't have to worry about buying a new bike for a few years with a growing convertible bike like the Kidvelo Rookie.
The Rookie balance bike comes in 4 different colours, just in case your child has a colour preference:
Red Balance Bike
Blue Balance Bike
Green Balance Bike
Pink Balance Bike

The best balance bikes vary in price from $69 to over $1,000, but most decent ones are between $200 to $400. Our Kidvelo rookie balance bikes are unique in that they’re convertible balance bikes and can adapt as your child grows, giving long term value for money for parents and a lifetime of memories for your child on two wheels.
