Here at Glide Bikes, we are dedicated to getting your child prepared to master the skills of bike riding! Our bikes are the perfect tools to help kids build their confidence by learning how to balance without the use of training wheels.
Glide bikes are small balance bikes that are built low to the ground and without pedals, chains, or gears. This eliminates the risk of crashes and injuries caused by chains and gears while giving your children less to think about while learning a new skill. Eliminating the need to pedal allows your child to focus on how to balance without worrying about the footwork required to power a traditional bicycle.
Of course, there are no training wheels either; kids won't need them with our specially designed bikes which are perfect for young children or special needs children. Glide Bikes are built low to the ground in order to easily allow children to place both feet on the road at any time. This enables them to feel in control of their speed and balance; letting them focus on gliding instead of falling. The child propels the bike by walking, and once they have built up some momentum, they lift their feet. This gives them the opportunity to practice steering and balancing without the distractions of using pedals and braking. Glide Bikes are light and safe, weighing in at just 8-10 pounds and designed with our patented low speed downhill geometry of just 2 mph. Riders as young as eighteen months can begin their bike riding adventures easily and safely with glide bikes.
