Glide Bikes Mini Glider 12 inch Balance Bike - Blue

Our Blue Mini Glider Balance Bike by Glide Bikes is a lightweight learning bike that teaches young children, from age 2-5 years old how to to ride a bicycle. With no pedals to get in the way, training wheels that cause tip-overs, or heavy steel frame to get trapped under, the Glide Bikes Mini Glider is a fun and safe way for kids to learn how to balance by themselves; one of the most important skills needed to ride a bicycle.

The downhill mountain bike geometry (65° head and seat angle) gives riders a lower center of gravity for increased stability and safer balancing. Other balance bikes have mountain bike geometry of 68-69° and road bike geometry of 70-71°.

The seat of the Mini Glider can lower to 11" and the handle bars adjust to accommodate the very youngest kids.

Glide Bikes learning bikes also incorporates a unique patented foot peg system to allow kids to have a place to rest their feet while gliding. These pegs can be locked into place with one simple to use, tool-free pin allowing the foot pegs to be installed or removed in seconds. This feature helps some of our smallest riders and special needs kids to focus on gliding and balancing.

As your child develops balance and begins gliding, they can place their feet on the foot pegs and get accustomed to the natural foot position present on a traditional bicycle. If there is not a place to put feet its uncomfortable for kids to dangle their feet and they won't be able to ride for as long. It also helps save their shoes from getting scraped up. Glide Bikes is the only pedal-less balance bike with this feature.

5 of 5 Glide Bikes Mini Glider 12 in Balance Bike Review May 3, 2014
Reviewer: S. Anderson  
I bought this balance bike for my son's birthday, hoping he would get comfortable enough with it by summer for us to go on mini bike rides around the park together. It only took him a few days before he was sailing across our back patio, happy as a clam.

On the plus side, the bike was easy for me to assemble by myself, and since the seat adjusts, he’ll be able to grow with it until he’s ready for a big boy bike. Also, it’s easy for me to cart around and fits easily in the trunk of my car.
