It all began with one bike and one goal! To build confident kids on a safer bike made just for them - The Guardian Bike. The Guardian Bike was engineered to perfection, exceptionally durable, and easy to control. With a custom frame made out of lightweight aluminum, specs designed especially for kids, and our patented SureStop Braking System we were able to give kids a better AND safer biking experience.
As the company grew we wanted to bring our safety technology and the Guardian Bikes experience to millions of families at a more affordable price point. By using a lightweight steel frame, the Guardian ETHOS was born. The ETHOS was slightly heavier than our ultra-lightweight aluminum frame but had all the same engineering and safety features our customers loved at a more affordable price.
Upon introducing ETHOS we started referring to our original bike as the “Guardian Original.” However the word “original” can suggest it to be old or outdated. Being our premium top-of-the-line bike and to eliminate confusion we have decided to change its name.
Moving forward, Original models will now be called AIROS- A name to reflect its lighter weight frame in relation to the ETHOS model.
