“The best balance bike to learn how to balance and pedal for the very first time”
Balance bikes are the perfect transition between a scooter and a standard push bike. They are a great gift for a preschooler, toddler or kids that simply want to move a little faster around the neighbourhood. Getting a balance bike makes sure your toddler or kid can have fun on two wheels, even if they have no experience riding a bike.
Convertible Balance bikes are perfect for kids of all abilities and an amazing way to introduce your little one to the wonderful world of cycling. 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.
