The coolest kid on the block is definitely riding an Early Rider balance bike. Balance bikes have no pedals, so kids as young as 20 months can ride them, using their feet to propel the bike. They're fantastic for building core strength and learning balance, making the transition to a pedal bike without stabilisers much easier.

No pedals


The Early Rider series of bikes are beautifully made, with high quality build and great functionality. The style oozes attitude, deserving of the tagline, "The world's baddest balance bikes for kids".

The Early Rider Lite model is designed for kids aged 20 months to 3.5 years. Our daughter started riding hers age 2 and was ready to transition to a pedal bike at 3, both from a size and readiness standpoint.

The frame is made from FSC certified birch ply and has the cool Early Rider flame and logo branded into the side.

The handle bars have comfortable foam grips. The steering can be set to 'restricted' for novice riders or 'unrestricted' for more confident riders who can start to use the steering to correct balance rather than their feet.

Comfortable grips


The seat cover is faux leather and has a comfortable amount of padding for a longer ride. The seat hight can be adjusted from 29.5cm to 38cm.

The tyres are 12 inch pneumatic tyres which can manage bumpy terrain very comfortably.

Great tyres for all terrain


At $165 in Australia, there are definitely cheaper alternatives on the market. However, the quality is superb and it's a bike that can be handed down amongst lots of children.

I think it's a great bike for both boys and girls. However, there's also the option to 'pink it up' with an seat and handle grip accessory pack (also available in pale blue). You can even add a satchel which can double as a doll's carrier.
