Balance bike is a bike without pedals, which helps the children starting from 18 months of age to learn a sense of balance and to develop the skills to ride a bike. In a short period of time the children acquire a skill to keep a balance, to steer, to turn, to control the bike and to use it independently without parental assistance.
Our stores in Riga and online store www.mysport.lv offer a very wide selection of balance bikes. Trust us with your choice!
Balance bike serves as a substitute for the pushable tricycles or quadricycles that are usually used during this same age. Balance bike is intended for children aged 1.5-5 years, but it is most often used by 2-3 years old children, who then afterwards switch to a bicycle with pedals.
When driving with a balance bike till 3 years of age, the child acquires the necessary skills to be able to switch to a bicycle with pedals and to ride without additional training wheels.

Balance bikes are available in various sizes. The smallest ones are intended for children starting from 18 months of age, but the biggest ones are designed even for adults. Usually balance bikes are used in a period from 18 months to 5 years of age, but most often by 2-3 years old children.
