Why Kids LOVE Guardian Bikes
With SureStop, there’s only one brake lever, so your kid can’t get confused when things happen fast. Our patented brakes won’t ever flip the bike, and the lever is in just the right place for kid-size hands.
Guardian bikes never have coaster brakes. Period. New riders backpedal to keep their balance. If a bike has coaster brakes, this stops the bike, just when they were getting the hang of it. Our brakes stop faster, with much more control.
Kids don’t just need smaller bikes. They need different bikes. With all the right proportions. They need smaller grips. They need less distance between the pedals. They need shorter crank arms and a low center of gravity. All Guardian bikes are designed for kids, from the ground up.
The low cross bar makes our bikes easy to get on, and a lot safer if your kid comes off their seat in a hurry.
Every Guardian bike seat is both easily adjustable and easy to lock down. You can adjust the height to fit your kid as they grow up with the bike.

I purchased this bike for my 4 yr. old who was VERY comfortable riding a balance bike for the last 2 years. We had tried a new larger bike with training wheels but she was very nervous and didn't like the wobble of the training wheels. I opted to get this bike from Guardian and I barely had to help her get going before she was off and riding a "big girl bike" with no training wheels and no support. I was speechless watching her taking off, she can even get herself started without my help. The best parts of this bike (in my opinion): - The smaller size and weight; I was able to purchase her the bike that fit her perfectly which made her comfortable with it quickly and able to handle it on her own, a big confidence booster. I also believe this is a huge contributor to her being able to directly transition from a balance bike to this one - the ease of taking the pedals on and off (she rode it around for 2 days without pedals to get used to the brakes before we popped the pedals on) - the safer braking system - the kickstand! - the colors are so fun and vibrant, it's an overall great quality bike I have told so many other parents about Guardian and the methodology of going from balance bike to pedal bike without training wheels, I will continue to only purchase Guardian bikes as she gets bigger!
Big Girl bike!
This is my daughter's 2nd bike. She loves this one SO much! She went from riding her bike once or twice a week to now jumping on her Guardian Bike every morning. She loves having a "big girl bike" that works like daddy's! The bike was simple to assemble and the quality is unmatched. I highly recommend!
We got the mint purple bike for our daughter and she loves all about it. The 14inch was too small for her so with the help of the amazing customer service we were able to upgrade her bike to a larger size without trouble. Now our girl is riding her 16inch bike with so much joy. No training wheels needed. She just went from balance bike to pedal bike in no time.
Great service and bike
Second bike purchased for my kids and both picked up riding quickly after learning to balance on a strider bike. Thank you!
My issue is the over priced accessories I bought, made in China. And do not fit the bicycle. The way they should there should have been a rubber spacer for the light as well as the bell! I did expect more.
Hi Steve! Thanks for your feedback. It sounds like your order was missing the shims that help the bell fit more snugly! We are sending those out to you! Let us know if you need any more help- we're here for you. Laura @Guardian Bikes
