It also has a handle integrated into the saddle so you can guide while they ride and tool-free training wheels that are super easy to install and remove. It's a great fit for kids aged 4-5, between 39–46˝ (99–117 cm) tall.
It's right for you if...
You're excited to teach your little one how to ride, and want to make it a great memory. You're looking for a bike that's fun and simple to use, yet helps your child practise the skills they'll need for big kid bikes – like using hand brakes. You don't want to settle for a big box brand because you know the value of a high-quality bike that will keep your kid confident and in control.
The tech you get
This kid-friendly bike has a lightweight Alpha Silver Aluminium frame, one speed and two hand brakes with kid-sized levers that are easy to pull. Plus, tool-less training wheels that can be installed and removed at the turn of a dial and a saddle with an integrated handle that can be swapped out for an integrated rear light mount.
