Confidence for kids, peace of mind for parents.

“I have three kids, and taught them all how to ride bikes over the years. With my youngest, we got a Guardian bike. It was like night and day compared to the other two. Within half an hour, she was up and riding by herself. I barely needed to help her balance. She is so happy and excited, and no backache for me!”

-- Emily, mom of 3

    Great Bike.

    The bike arrived in perfect condition and sooner than expected. Very little assembly was required and the directions were easy to follow. The quality of the bike is so much better than those you buy at a discount store. He loves the bike and I would highly recommend this bike. So glad I made the purchase.

    Great starter bike!

    From beginning to end it was a great experience. Our daughter loves her bike and had been using a glider bike for a while. She started on the small 20" Guardian bike without pedals for 2 outings then told us she wanted to try with pedal (no training wheels) within 5min she was on her own with no support!! It looks some coaching and experimenting on her part to get started from a complete stop, figure out her balance while starting, but she never fell and was able to confidently negotiate everything with the bike. Great experience so far!!

    Training Wheels Compatible

    We recommend using the balance bike method when teaching your child to ride a bike, but understand all children learn differently.

    Compatible training wheels can be purchased here for our 14", 16", and 20" Bikes.
