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.

Really great bike

This company was so fabulous, called a couple of times with different questions and always had someone very knowledgeable and helpful. The bike was backordered, but was worth the wait. Really great quality!

The place to go when you need a bike during a global pandemic!

When the rest of the world seemed to be sold out of kid bikes, guardian bikes came through when my son needed a new bike during a global pandemic! They have excellent customer service and I am totally satisfied with our experience. I'd be happy to buy from them again.

Great, sturdy

The bike is great! My 7-year-old was able to learn how to ride a bike with this. Only thing that might need improvement are the grips on the handlebars. The pattern on the grips makes it uncomfortable for my daughter to hold on to it for a long time.

Good value but could improve

Shipping came later than expected(guardian only counts when it ships while most people think when it arrives at your door). Shifter is too hard for my 7 year old to use. She just stays at 6 because she cant downshift. Whats the point of having gears then? Better gearing for more top end speed
