Product Description

Smart Balance Bikes by Smart Gear, often referred to as run bikes or balance bikes, which are pedal free and without training wheels, first and foremost help a child develop the most important skills necessary to later ride a 2 wheel bicycle with pedals: BALANCE and MOTOR SKILLS.
Smart Balance Bikes were designed to develop a child's balance and coordination by simply allowing the child to sit and walk or run with the bike by pushing with their feet. If the bike starts to fall, kids instinctively regain their balance using their feet. Once they've gained some momentum and balance control they can lift their feet up as they feel comfortable and start cruising!

Smart Balance Bikes are made from birch wood with real inflatable rubber tires, handle bar grips, cushioned leatherette seat and our own unique carry handle incorporated in the bikes body.

Smart Gear designs, develops, manufactures and distributes eco friendly, award winning, fun, innovative and educational products for children age birth and up. Our product range includes: Wooden Balance Bikes, Rockers, Ride-Ons, Walkers, Blocks, Sorters, Stackers, Teethers, Push & Pull toys, Mini Vehicles, Pretend Play, furniture and more!

Smart Gear is a strong advocate of protecting the environment. We take great pride in bringing award winning, safe, fun and educational products to children around the world. We are committed to the highest standard of safety & quality for all of our products and packaging. We have been and will continue to be proactive in the testing of our products.

      Excellent product but a little expensive for a short period of time to use.

      Maybe a little too good for the learning purpose

      Comments about Smart Gear Classic - Smart Balance Bike:

      Smart Gear's Eco-Friendly Classic Wooden Balance Bike is an investment for our two young sons, age 3 years and 1 year. During the winter months, my oldest son has been manuveuring it throughout the downstairs rooms, and I can already (after two months) tell a difference in his ability to balance on the bike. Although we have not had this product very long, I foresee it being a great investment (and one of the more affordable balance bikes on the market, at the time we bought it on sale).However, it does have an Achilles heal. [...] My husband decided to go to the local hardware store to purchase metal washers, which have worked really well - and I daresay - better than that with which the bike originally came.Overall, this was a fabulous purchase. I love little details on this bike that others do not seem to have: the deep tire tread, which works great in our hilly yard; the carry handle cut into the main support of the bike, which is perfect for an adult carrying the bike from here to there; rubberized handle-bar grips that help my little ones keep ahold of the bars; etc.You won't go wrong with this bike - especially if you replace the plastic washers!

        Comments about Smart Gear Classic - Smart Balance Bike:

        This bike was bought as a gift for my 1 yr. old son. He rode this bike everywhere. At 3 yrs. old we thought we'd put him on a regular bike with training wheels. He did so well in a week we took the the training wheels off. We held on to the back of his seat and let go and we never helped him again. We truly believe this bike enhanced his gross motor skills and he loved riding the bike. At 5 yrs old now, he rides it even though his knees are almost on the ground. LOL!!!!!!!!

          Comments about Smart Gear Classic - Smart Balance Bike:

          Though my daughter and I have only used this birthday present a couple of times, I love its structure, ability to help her balance and promote physical development.

          For me, the price was a bit daunting, especially ordering online and therefore not being able to physically see, review the product before purchase.

          However, as my subject noted, so far, we love it.

          Plus, it's eco-friendly (sustainable materials, etc.) and just a little different enough to make it cool. At least for my baby's age!

            Comments about Smart Gear Classic - Smart Balance Bike:

            This is a great concept - a balance bike, that is - because it really works. My 5 year old learned to ride a bicycle without training wheels in one afternoon after using the balance bike for a month. My 3-yr-old can balance well already, gliding for 100s of feet at a time, it's really amazing to watch. As soon as she is coordinated enough to steer and pedal and balance, she'll be on a bicycle - no problem. We really love this product and the wooden body makes for interesting passer-by conversation.

            The drawback to this particular model in our experience is that the inner tubes have both blown within a year of purchase. One of them blew while the 3 yo was riding it and it blew through the outer tire. This scared her, but customer service at Smart Gear was great and prompt about replacing all parts free of charge and my daughter is excited to get back on it. You really can't let big kids ride it, it's for 2-6 years, I would say, and the replacement inner tubes are difficult to pump up because of the design of the wheels.

            Despite this, I do recommend the bike because of the concept that works for kids and they really love riding it.

              We bought this for our 2 year old who had been dying to ride a bike but was too small for regular bikes. This bike fits him perfectly and he loves it. It is solid and sturdy and can take the wear put on it by a young boy.

                  When I saw the heading on the product it was exactly what I wanted...However at no point did I see the bike was gender specific. I have a 3yr old boy and the bike came with flowers and hearts!!! Luckily his dad is a custom painter who sanded off the flowers and hearts and then put blue flames like a motorcycle. Now it's original but it was a hassle. I didnt return it because after putting it together you cant take it apart!!!

                      I love this Balance bike. It works great to teach kids how to balance with the security of being able to put their feet down, the challenge of keeping them up for longer periods of smooth sailing - something training wheels can not offer. I only wish they had this out when my other kids were learning how to ride.
