Balance is everything when you're learning how to ride, and Kickster is the perfect teaching tool for toddlers who are mastering this important skill. This kids' balance bike doesn't have pedals so balance is the only focus, plus it features a handle so you can support your little one while they get the hang of things. Kickster is ideal for kids who are roughly 34-40" tall.
It's right for you if...
You're planning to raise the next Tour de France winner, and you want to start training early! Learning to ride is a lot easier once you learn balance. Kickster is a balance bike that can help your kids skip the training wheels and go straight to a two-wheeler in no time.
The tech you get
Kickster has a lightweight aluminum frame with a super-easy stepthrough geometry that's perfectly designed for short legs. It's built with 12" wheels, a handle on the saddle so you can help your little one along, and a steering limiter so kids can't turn the front wheel all the way around or turn too quickly.
The final word
Kickster makes teaching little ones how to ride an absolute breeze. Unlike training wheels, this bike lets kids learn how to balance at a young age, so they'll be confident and comfortable on a big kid bike in no time.
