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.

Balance bikes are the perfect transition between a scooter and a standard push bike. They are the 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.
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 kids 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.
