The Smart Balance Bike is the most effective, fun and safe way for toddlers to learn to ride! It's a unique method to practice the techniques needed to ride a bicycle: balance and motor skills. There are no pedals or training wheels—beginners simply sit and run or walk. If the bike begins to fall, they'll instinctively use their feet to regain balance. Once they feel comfortable, they can lift their feet and cruise along on the real rubber tires.
