16 Inch Ethos Bike

So much to love in one bike

SureStop, Easy Reach Brakes 

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.

Lightweight Design

The Guardian Ethos has a lightweight steel frame, making it easy to control while still durable enough to outlast your kid. Like every Guardian bike, it’s kid-tested to be safe and fun to ride.

Eye Candy Decals

Our bike colors and designs were developed by kids, for kids, to make our bikes the coolest bikes on the block. Our Guardian Ethos line uses water-transfer decals with a clear coat finish, giving the whole bike a polished shine.

Kid-specific Geometry

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.

Low Step-over Height

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.

Adjustable Seat

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.

No Coaster Brake

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.

I love this bike!

Our experience with Guardian and with the bike has been spectacular! The company is amazing. They have designed a wonderful product and have first class customer service behind it. And my grandson absolutely loves the bike. Equally (actually, more) important, we know that he’s safe on it. It’s beautifully engineered, with safety as the first objective. That is obvious. When my granddaughter is old enough, I will be buying another Guardian bike. That’s for sure!

Happy customer

I bought two of these bikes, a 20 in large with gears and a 20 inch small. They fit according to the recommendations and my kids learned how to break with the hand break with ease. Great bikes. Thanks!

Amazing 1st Pedal Bike

We purchased this bike for our 5 year old daughter, and had wonderful customer service from Guardian before buying. The bike was very easy to assemble and looks wonderful. But, best of all, our daughter was able to pick up riding within 5 minutes! She had previously used a balance bike, but this was her first pedal bike and the weight of the bike and the braking system made it supremely easy to begin. We also had a friend try out the bike and she was able to ride it within minutes as well, so it is a perfect first pedal bike and I would highly recommend it! FYI, our daughter is 43 inches tall and the 16" was the perfect size.
