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.

It’s ok…heavy and poor kickstand design
I will start by saying this is one of the few 14 inch bikes that allow back pedaling and has an awesome single hand brake which I thought would be easier for an early rider. This was the main reason I purchased it. This bike is really heavy in fact compared to the 16 inch Woom we have it feels a lot heavier. The weight with the poor kickstand design (needs to be a bit shorter) means this bike falls over a lot. Also the bell accessory that we bought for it doesn’t fit on the handle bar.
Hi Mark, Thanks for your review! We are looking into the kickstand issue to see if maybe the design can be improved. We would love for you to email us a photo of your bike with the kickstand down so we can have a look. Our bikes are in the lightweight category but if you compare across makers, some might be slightly lighter. Our 14" bike weighs 16 lbs, while one from a big box store would weigh 20 lbs or more. Let me know if you have any other questions or concerns! -Laura @Guardian Bikes
Not as good as it seemed
We had a lot of problems building the bike, and it is heavier than it seems or as it was promised. Not sure is that friendly for my 3y toddler.
