20 Inch Small 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.

Double-walled Rims

Our double-walled rims can stand up to the extreme beating of a kids’ bike without bends, dents, or buckles. Even under the weight of a grown man. We tested it. A bunch of times.

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!

I'm a time when it's not easy to find a bike, I found a great one at Guardian! It arrived within a few days and was mostly out together. The last few steps were easy with the instructional video. My son loves his new bike!

Great Bike, Great Service

My son got on his Guardian bike and rode IMMEDIATELY. He was using his balance bike, got ride on his Guardian bike and took off like a shot. I also had an excellent customer service experience in ordering the bike, I ordered late and they got it to us by Christmas. That was just awesome. Love this bike!! Its excellent quality, my 4yr old son can use the handbrake, no problem!

Great bike for 6 year old

I bought this for my grandson’s 6th birthday. He loves it. My son in law said it’s super easy to put it together. I am definitely going to buy it again. Next one will be for my granddaughter on her 4th birthday. I am very pleased with the purchase.
