Forget the training wheels. Teaching your kids bike basics is easy with a balance bike.

Training wheels are out, and the balance bike is in. Instead of waiting until toddlers are tall enough for a “big kid” bike, the Bicycoo from Joovy allows kids as young as eighteen months to start testing out their balance on two wheels. Then they can take to the freedom of the hills.

The Bicycoo takes away all the learning barriers kids face when learning to ride a bike. Focusing on balance, braking, and steering allows them to master the basics before going all out with the pedals. Once they’re tall enough to straddle the bike, they can cruise the streets using their feet to propel them forward. After they’ve gotten the hang of scooting around on two wheels, they’ll start lifting their feet to better understand the balancing act of riding a bike.

With an 8.75lb aluminum frame kids won’t feel bogged down by unnecessary weight. An adjustable seat grows as they do, and both tires are refillable, pneumatic air for good suspension. This balance bike is durable enough to last long after little adventurers are ready for pedals.

So let them cruise through the campground or the neighborhood. They’ll quickly learn confidence, and the simple joy of riding a bike.
