Review

"If you’re in Australia or the UK, the Kidvelo Rookie 14 is a great choice. The Rookie 14 stacks up very well against the competition, with good looks, smart design, safety features that Mum and Dad will appreciate, and a price that’s solidly in line with other 14” balance bikes on the market today. If you’re shopping for your child’s first balance bike, give the Kidvelo Rookie 14 serious consideration.

Pros:

A Real Bike that looks like Mum and Dads bike but for 3 year old plus. Super Lightweight at 5.2kg in balance bike mode. Pneumatic (air-filled) tyres make for a safe, comfortable ride Sloping top tube makes it easy to mount/dismount Thoughtful safety features"

Some Frequently Asked Questions About Balance Bikes

14-inch balance bikes are the perfect transition from a 12-inch balance bike and a standard 16-inch push bike. They are a great gift for a preschooler,  kids that simply want to move a little faster around the neighbourhood. Getting a balance bike makes sure your child can have fun on two wheels, even if they have no experience riding a bike.

2 in 1 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 larger-wheeled compared to other kid’s bikes, making them suitable for small hands and bodies. A Kidvelo 2 in 1 balance bike is a fantastic way to help them transition into unsupported pedal bikes when they get a little older.

The Rookie 14 Balance bike is best suited for kids from 3 years to 6 years of age. Our 2 in 1 Rookie 14 provides a Seamless transition to pedaling without the need to switch bikes. Kids have more confidence having used the balance bike mode before fitting the included easy-ride pedal kit. No need to buy a new bike to change bike size. With two modes and a saddle height range of 40cm to 56cm, the Rookie 14 adapts to your growing child.

Balance bikes don’t have a drive train or pedals and are powered by your kids kicking off the ground. Adults can also guide the bike along by holding the handle under the seat.

Be confident in buying a Kidvelo Balance Bike with a world-class warranty! 5 years warranty on the Frame & Fork, 2 years warranty on components, and 1 year on Accessories. Plus we stock a full array of spare parts locally to keep your little one on two wheels longer.

The Rookie 14 starts as a balance bike for kids age three or over. Unlike most balance bikes, as your child grows, the unique 2 in 1 bike adjusts to your growing child! The Rookie 14 is different to normal balance bikes as pedals can be fitted, converting it into a proper pedal bike. No need to buy two separate bikes when you can buy the Rookie 14. Our Kidvelo Balance Bikes are designed in Sydney, Australia by designer Anthony Kotarac with an ultra-lightweight aluminium frame making our balance bikes easy to handle and are rustproof and very durable. It is also ergonomically designed with a footrest for traction and stability and an ergonomic grab handle under the saddle for easy teaching. If you’re looking for a step up from the Rookie 14″ balance bike, be sure to check our Rookie 18″ balance bike for older kids from ages 5 years to 8 years of age to learn on a larger balance bike.

5 reviews for Rookie 14 Inch Balance Bike with Pedals

  1. Melinda M.

    Our 4 year old son went straight from his 12″ balance bike (bought for him at age 2) to pedaling on this 14 inch balance bike with add-on pedals. He was riding it on the same day we gave it to him. We contribute it to his hard work on his balance bike and the light frame and hand brake features of this particular bike. Thanks for making a great learner bike. We will be purchasing the next size for him when he outgrows it and this bike will go to his little brother who is currently using the smaller balance bike.

  2. Sarah W.

    Best Bike ever! Our daughter absolutely loves this bike. It’s such a great quality bike and it was an easy transition from balance to two wheel riding. I especially love the fact that it is so lightweight and it comes with the add-on pedal kit included with the bike. This bike is such a game changer and saves us money not having to buy a separate balance bike and then a pedal bike as she progresses from balancing to learning how to pedal. I wish we found this bike earlier for our older son to learn to ride on. A wonderful buying experience as there is nothing else like it in the market.

  3. Justin V.

    This balance bike is perfect and extremely lightweight which I liked. We kept it as a balance bike for a couple of weeks just to have her get the hang of it. We switched it over to a pedal bike and it took her maybe 30 or so minutes and she was pedaling, with no help from us and her just figuring it out. I think a major part of the success was the fact that this was the same bike she was comfortable riding as a balance bike and then adding the included pedal kit gave her confidence she could pedal this bike. Wow. If your child is a timid rider then get this bike to help them build their confidence in learning to ride a bike for the first time.

  4. Emma S.

    Exemplary customer service – we were unsure about the appropriate type and size of bike for our 4.5-year-old child who lacks confidence in biking. Most balance bikes available were too small for her, but we needed something that would remain useful for more than just a few weeks or months. Nicole promptly and excellently provided guidance, and we ultimately decided on the Rookie 14. The bike arrived before Christmas and was simple to assemble on the day. It is aesthetically pleasing, well-crafted, and gives the impression of being durable. Our overall experience was fantastic; we extend our gratitude to the Kidvelo for such an excellent product and service.

  5. Aaron C.

    My son started with the Rookie 12 when he was just 18 months old and has now progressed to the Rookie 14 balance bike, ready for the pedals at age 3. I absolutely love Kidvelo bikes! The design is amazing, they are lightweight, and my son adores the bold, bright colours. I highly recommend these convertible bikes to any parent or rider.
