What is a balance bike?
Balance bikes are a great way to introduce young chidren to cycling as the young rider has the opportunity to naturally develop balance. The bikes have been designed in order to provide children with a fun and safe riding experience that will build their confidence and help them to transition smoothly to a pedal bike later on.
What makes the FirstBIKE balance bikes stand out?
FirstBIKE has been designed by Ralf Coerschulte, an avid German cyclist, product designer, and father of three, with one goal: to build the safest and best balance bike for young children, allowing them to learn to ride a bike intuitively and without stress.
After years of fine-tuning and testing, Ralf succeeded in creating a unique product that is deemed to be the safest in its category. Thanks to its glass fiber, injection-molded composite material, there is also no risk of scratching, splintering, swelling or rust!
FirstBIKE balance bikes are a great way to introduce young children to cycling,
allowing them to develop balancing skills and build confidence.
