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 training wheels and go straight to a two-wheeler in no time.

The tech you get

Kickster has a lightweight aluminum frame with a super-easy stepthrough 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 training wheels, 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.

Sizing & fit

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. The best way to find your perfect fit is to consult the experts at your local Trek retailer.
