Specially crafted to teach your child – ages 2 to 5 – how to balance properly on a bike, the Glide Bikes 16 in. Go Glider Balance Bike - Orange is a great choice over traditional training wheels. Featuring a lightweight and durable alloy frame that will not rust, this bike only weighs 10 lbs. for easy maneuvering. The 16 in. metal wheels and air tires make for the most comfortable ride, on any surface. Capable of supporting up to 125 lbs. and recommended for children ages six and up, this glider bike features an adjustable seat and handles to grow with your child. Easy to steer, the Go Glider Balance Bike has mountain bike geometry which allows for the slowest and safest balancing speed of 1.5 MPH. The front wheel is positioned out in front of the handlebar, making it nearly impossible for the rider to go over the handlebars. Also, the rider sits over the back wheel creating a lower center of gravity and more stability. Foot pegs give your child a place to rest their feet, while the handbrakes are child-sized and prevent kids from dragging their feet to stop the bike. Painted with certified, lead-free metallic paint in a classic shade of red, your child will love gaining confidence and learning how to ride a bike. A note from the manufacturer: we no longer include pads on the handlebar and stem. Do to the redesign of the stem, it is not needed.
