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.

Great Bike! Great Service!

My experience was absolutely seamless. I ordered Tuesday, bike arrived Friday, put on the handlebars/pedals in about 10 min. and was ready to go. Beautifully made...my daughter loves it. Thanks Guardian!

Fantastic Bike & Fantastic Experience

Bought as a first bike without training wheels. My son was riding in less than 1 hour and absolutely loves his new bike! Speedy delivery and easy to follow instructions for quick assembly. High quality product! I may buy another one for younger siblings.

Great bike

We purchased this bike for our son after getting the 20” version for our daughter. Both bikes are great. Kids love them. Bikes seem sturdy and well built. Videos were super helpful for the small adjustments needed on shifting gears. Would definitely recommend to others.
