Balance Bikes

Balance bikes are a brilliant invention! They’re a great way to get your child confident on two wheels before they’re ready to move on to a pedal bike. A balance bike will remove the need for using stabilisers for the majority of kids and are a lot more fun (and fast!)

While most balance bikes are aimed at children aged between about 2.5 and 4 years, there’s also plenty of options for younger and older kids, and even balance bikes that convert into pedal bikes.

You  may already have noticed that there’s a huge choice of balance bikes available aimed at all budgets which can be very confusing.

That’s where Cycle Sprog is here to help! We’ve done the research plus got feedback from loads of parents to generate our lists of recommended balance bikes.

We include new, second-hand and leasing options (where available) so you should be able to choose the perfect balance bike for your budding Cycle Sprog at a price that’s right for you.
