It's right for you if...
You're excited to teach your little one how to ride, and want to make it a great memory. You're looking for a bike that's fun and simple to use, yet helps your child practise the skills they'll need for big kid bikes – like using hand brakes. You don't want to settle for a big box brand because you know the value of a high-quality bike that will keep your kid confident and in control.
The tech you get
This kid-friendly bike has a lightweight Alpha Silver Aluminium frame, one speed and two hand brakes with kid-sized levers that are easy to pull. Plus, tool-less training wheels that can be installed and removed at the turn of a dial and a saddle with an integrated handle that can be swapped out for an integrated rear light mount.
The final word
When it comes to your child's first bike, you want to make sure they're riding something that's comfortable, durable and fun. Each of our bikes, all the way down to the smallest size, is built to our highest standards, so you can feel confident when you choose Trek for your family.

The charts below show our recommended sizes based on height, but there are some other factors, like arm and leg length, that determine a great fit. That’s why you’ll see some overlap in our recommendations. Not every rider who’s 5´8˝, for example, will fit on the same size bike.
