YBike Extreme Balance Bike - OrangeItem#: HN-YBK005
Your child will be on her way to riding a two-wheeler in no time with the YBike Extreme Balance Bike - Orange. A slightly larger and more advanced version of the original YBike, the YBike Extreme helps develop the motor skills, balance, and coordination needed for riding a bike without the use of stabilizers, such as training wheels.
- No-pedal design; child rides using balance as feet skim the ground
- Lightweight but strong aluminum frame
- Rubber over molded wheels, providing great comfort and grip with no punctures
- Larger wheels, designed for safer play and easier riding on uneven surfaces
- Higher ground clearance means the frame won't get caught on uneven ground
- Older child fork rake means safer steering
- Cartridge wheel bearings offer durability and a smooth ride
- Comfortable beam seat lets your child sit closer to handlebar, and slide back as she gets taller
- Seat height is 14 inches
- Can be used indoors or outdoors
The recommended age for the YBike Extreme is 3 to 5 years, but varies according to your child's height and weight. Keep in mind the recommended height for the bike is approximately 43 inches tall and the weight capacity is up to 55 lbs.
In a study on the original YBike 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
In addition, tests in Germany and other countries have indicated the benefits of not using balancing aids such as training wheels on small bikes for children.
With a cool look that will appeal to children, and a safe, skill-building design that parents will love, the YBike Extreme Balance Bike - Orange is a smart way to encourage your child's interest in bike riding and overall fitness.
