20 Inch Small Original 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.

Ultra-lightweight Design

The Guardian Original is made of ultra-lightweight, aircraft-grade aluminum. It’s exceptionally durable and extremely easy to control, making it both super 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 Originals use a matte black frame with glossy heat-transfer decals, for a popping contrast that will blow your kid’s mind.

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 top tube 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.

Fantastic Bike.

I am the father of a 8 year old Autistic son who has just recently began riding a bike without training wheels. He out grew his previous bike and we were just going to get something cheap from Walmart to start but decided to spend the extra money and go with the guardian 24in bike. We have not been disappointed at all. He loves the hand brake which was our biggest concern but picked it up quickly and stops with confidence. On his previous bike he always used his feet to stop. He rides his bike all the time with me and my wife and it should last for another 4 years until he needs another size up. Extra money well spent without the frustration that comes with a poorly made bike's brakes and shifters.

Amazing bike

We could not be happier with the bike we got for our 7year old son. He loves the design and has had a blast trying it out the last couple days. Set up was very easy and the video instructions are helpful. We got the 24 inch bike, I would have never picked that size but trusted the sizing guide and it’s perfect for him at the lowest setting, he’ll be able to enjoy it for a long time.
