How to Choose Your First Bike?
At around 2 or 3 years of age, little ones make their debut in the exciting world of cycling. As a first bicycle, we highly recommend the balance bike, also known as a strider bike, or the 12-inch bike for children measuring between 80 and 95 cm. We recommend 14-inch bikes for children aged 4 to 6 years and measuring between 95 and 115 cm. If your child feels ready to move up, the 14-inch bike is the ultimate choice.
What is a Balance Bike?
The balance bike, or strider bike, is a 12" bike without pedals or training wheels that uses the child's legs as a method of propulsion. It is a better option as a first biking experience since children tend to grasp the concept more quickly. The balance bike teaches balance very early, which can sometimes even eliminate the need for training wheels on the next bike. In fact, training wheels are not a mandatory step once you have mastered your balance. We strongly recommend the balance bike as a first kids bike, it offers only advantages!
How to Determine the Right Bike Size?
It's not necessary to buy the perfect size; choose the larger bike that your child feels comfortable and safe on to extend the life of the purchase. To determine if the bike size is appropriate, when seated on the saddle, the child should be able to touch the ground with their feet flat. Additionally, the child should be able to easily turn the handlebars without letting go of the ends. Keep in mind that contact points are adjustable as well.
