An introduction to our children’s bike series, the Micargi Hunter Pro 12″ Sport Kid's Balance Bike is great addition to your child’s life. A balance bike is traditionally used for toddlers around 18 months or so to balance on two wheels. In addition to tricycles and training wheels, a balance bike is a nice change of pace and will help your toddler learn how to ride and balance. With skills learned from a balance bike, your child will be able to go from this directly to a regular kids bike without training wheels. With a balance bike, your child will learn how to ride and coast without the assistance of adults. The Micargi Hunter Pro 12″ Sport Kid's Balance Bike specifically uses a steel frame and and padded seat for comfort. It has a foam safety pad, foam tires and integrated foot rest. This bike has the ability to adjust the seat height, so it can grow along with your child.
