This is mainly due to design. However, the Super Junior and Super Junior Max ranges have adjustable seats to suit your growing child.
Our bikes are suitable for 18-month-old toddler’s right up to 6-year-olds! The majority of our bikes range from 2 years upwards, though our Super Junior range starts from 18 months due to the lower slung frame.
From as early as 18 months children learn by walking/running while sat on their balance bike. As the child grows confidence they begin to free wheel by lifting both feet off the ground. Once they begin to do this they have started to gain balance skills!
A balance bike is a bike with no pedals and no stabilizers, making it a really simple platform for a child to develop strength, coordination, balance and confidence.
Children who ride bikes with stabilizers learn how to pedal but not to balance, so have to start a lengthy learning process all over again when the stabilizers are removed.
As British cycling legend Chris Hoy says: “I have always been a big believer in the fact that stabilizers aren’t a good thing for kids because they don’t learn how to balance, they learn how to lean to one side. A balance bike teaches that important part of learning how to ride. Kids feel safe too because all they have to do is put their feet down.”
