the ultra-low, adjustable seat height inspires riding confidence by allowing the rider’s feet to be firmly planted on the ground as well as put their feet on the ground easily when off balance. with a total bike weight ranging from 17lbs (IRONe12) to 19lbs (IRONe16), the child can quickly build confidence and skill by having the ability to pick up the bike themselves. the aluminum TIG welded frame and steel BMX-style fork allows for a safe ride.

once the kid becomes more comfortable and confident with the electric balance bike, the tapered foot rests may deflect their legs away from blunt impact in the event of a tip over. as for selection modes, both models offer three power ones: training, standard, and advances. the training one tops of at 5mph (8.05 km/h), the standard one ranges from 7mph (11.27 km/h) and the advanced ranges from 9mph (14.48 km/h).

  • Buy a razor electric motorcycles for 250 bucks goes faster and better built

    Hugh Andrews says:
  • A balance bike is by definition UNPOWERED. This a MOTORCYCLE “by definition”.

    Chris P says:
  • Unfortunately, all Harley Davidson did was purchase a smaller business that was already making them and put some sticker kits on them.
    Check out Stacyc bikes. My daughter has been riding hers for a year.

    David O'Dowd says:
  • Yet another useless pollutant object for rich families. DesignBoom is a world wide plateform, many young designers student build their vision of design with your help, and you should have a responsability about it. Giving a lot of visibility for this trend influence the futur of design, and may spoiled talented people to waste their life drawing cars and motorcycle in a world killed by poverty and pollution.
