What is the point in a balance bike?

Balance bikes offer a safe, fun and effective platform to learn how to ride a bike without the unnecessary and unhelpful habits which form around training wheels. The point of a balance bike is to enable youngsters to master the fundamental skills of riding a bike (i.e. balance, coordination and confidence) through asserting independence to the rider while also ensuring safety and enjoyment. The low-slung design of a balance bike encourages your youngster to take control of their journey while improving arm and leg strength and coordination.
