It's right for you if...
You're planning to raise the next Tour de France winner and you want to start training early! Learning to ride is a lot easier once you learn balance. Kickster is a balance bike that can help your kids skip the stabilisers and go straight to a two-wheeler in no time.
The tech you get
Kickster has a lightweight aluminium frame with a super-easy step-through geometry that's perfectly designed for short legs. It's built with 12˝ wheels, a handle on the saddle so you can help your little one along, and a steering limiter so kids can't turn the front wheel all the way around or turn too quickly.
The final word
Kickster makes teaching little ones how to ride an absolute breeze. Unlike stabilisers, this bike lets kids learn how to balance at a young age, so they'll be confident and comfortable on a big kid bike in no time.
