KIDS' BIKES

There's something special about a bicycle under the tree. Specialized kids' bikes are built to last & inspire a lifetime of riding. Plus, you don't have to spend hours putting it together the night before!

Kick, Balance, steer
START 'EM UP

The balance bike is the easiest way to teach a toddler to ride a bike. When comfortable, they'll transition directly to a two wheel bike without training wheels.

FIRST PEDAL BIKE
2-4 Years old

After they've mastered the kick bike, they might switch over to a 12" starter bike.

Height: 3’ 0” - 3’ 3”
Wheel: 12”

PEDALS & COASTER BRAKES
4-6 Years Old

Once they’ve got their balance, kids can control their speed with a mix of pedal work and braking.

Height: 3’ 1” - 3’ 6”
Wheel: 16”

PEDALS & HANDBRAKES
6-8 Years old

Now that balance is second nature when riding, riders learn to pedal while managing their speed with handbrakes.

Wheel: 20”

SHIFTING & HANDBRAKES
8-11 Years old

Here is where the riders put it all together. Now that they’ve mastered balancing, steering, and braking, they’re ready to shift gears and take on new hills and valleys.

Height: 4’ 1” - 4’ “
Wheel: 24”
