Built Tough Like Kids


The Kidvelo Rookie 18″ is our largest-sized Hybrid 2-in-1 balance bike and first pedal bicycle that truly grows with your child like no other balance bike on the market. The Rookie range of balance bikes from Kidvelo will revolutionize how children learn to balance and ride a bike, without ever needing stabilizers or training wheels. Like all of our top-rated balance bikes, the Rookie 18 is incredibly lightweight and durable compliments of a 6061 aluminum frame and alloy components that will NEVER rust.

But, it goes a step further: The Rookie 18 quickly and easily converts from a balance bike to a first pedal bike by simply adding the included easy-ride pedal kit. Transitioning from balance mode to pedals, and back again is accomplished in mere minutes for your child’s instant riding success! Plus, since it retains the same geometry and handling between modes of operation, the child’s learning lag from balance to pedal is virtually non-existent. The Rookie range of hybrid 2-in-1 balance to pedal bikes is sure to please even the most discerning of parents.
