YBike Balance Bike - PinkItem#: HN-YBK003
Encourage your child's progress toward a "big-kid bike" with the YBike Balance Bike - Pink.
The YBike Balance Bike is cleverly engineered to help children develop overall motor skills and balance. The YBike has just the right mix of stability and instability to help your child build the skills needed to ride on two wheels. Kids propel this pedal-less bike using their balance and, as needed, their feet. Big wheels and a high ground clearance let your child ride safely on any terrain - pavement, grass, even sand - without risking injury, while still learning the basics of bike riding. The Ybike's front wheel sits further forward than that of most kids' bikes, which creates a bigger turning circle. The two back wheels, covered partially by the seat, keep your child from riding over his feet and allow for easier balancing, but encouraging your child to lean side to side while turning.
The YBike Balance Bike is recommended for children ages 2 - 4, but can be used by most kids over 2 years old and weighing less than 100 lbs. For indoor or outdoor use.
In a study performed by Professor ES Ressan from the Department of Sport Science at Stellenbosch University in South Africa, kids who tested the bike for 20-30 minutes twice a week showed:
- Substantial improvements in both static and dynamic balance
- Substantial improvements in bilateral coordination
- Observable improvements in physical self-confidence
Although still new to the market, the YBike has already won awards for its impressive design.
The SABS Award comes from a design institute in South Africa, where the YBike was created. The award considers all products on the market, not only toys. The YBike won for its appealing aesthetics and innovative design.
The Oppenheim Award is one of the most prestigious toy awards that can be won in the United States. Products are tested extensively with children before awards are presented. The YBike won the Gold Seal award, which is given to outstanding new products that enhance the lives of children.
Promote a love of bike riding and the value of physical fitness in your child with the unique YBike Balance Bike - Pink!
