Balance bikes teach a child to balance, steer, and stop without adding in the complication of pedaling. When a child first learns to ride a bike using training wheels they learn to depend on them rather than learning the necessary fundamentals needed to ride a pedal bike.
Benefits of the 12” Guardian Balance Bike
Our proprietary SureStop Brake System offers your toddler a safer and easier way to stop their balance bike compared to its competitors. The first real innovation in safer braking requires half the hand strength of a normal brake so even the youngest riders can use it with confidence.
When a young rider is learning to ride a bike the lighter the better. The 12” Guardian Balance Bike is just 8.5lbs which makes it much easier to balance and control for even a young toddler.
Because balance bikes are lightweight and easier to control, toddlers, as young as 18 months are able to begin their bike riding journey much earlier than one on a bike with training wheels.
A child who has mastered balancing, steering, and stopping (the most difficult skills) on a balance bike will transition much faster and easier to a pedal bike than one who has been depending on training wheels for riding.
This is the first balance bike to be assembled in the U.S. and is the first stage of our U.S. production. Want to know more about Guardian’s move to bring bike production back to the United States? Learn more here.
