Balance bike for Kids

Kids Balance Bike Specialists

There isn’t much we don’t know, about teaching youngsters to ride, with our combined 40 years of cycling industry expertise.

Backed by scientific research, Kidvelo designed and improved “learn to ride” bikes.

Clever Balance Bikes that convert to Pedal Bikes.

Designed for Kids. Built for Adventure!


Making Learning To Ride Child’s Play!

Starting out on a balance bike is now widely considered as the best method for teaching young children to learn to ride.

Frustrated by a lack of quality bikes at affordable pricing, we set out to help every child who wants to learn, regardless of ability and not just cater for toddlers!

 Kidvelo Bikes, will turn any beginner into a pedalling pro, using just one bike, through natural progression steps.

As the rider won’t outgrow their Kidvelo for several years, parents won’t need to purchase as many bikes. Kidvelo makes the lightest alloy frames, using kids sized adjustable components, with better geometry.

Designed to perform

Our unique confidence-inspiring low frames and alloy forks come with a lifetime warranty. Saddle heights are adjustable, as are the riser handlebars with non-slip grips. Toddlers love to ride through mud and puddles, so we build our bottom brackets to keep the dirt out. Alloy frames, threadless headsets and Joytech hubs with silky smooth bearings are standard!

Built to last years, we don’t use cheap parts, plastic components or heavy steel and carry every spare part you could ever need!

Bike Size Guide

What Size Kidvelo does my child need?

Our Kids’ Bike Size Guide will help you choose the correct size from our range. We discuss frame size, components used and how to obtain the measurements you need, such as inseam, to get the correct size. Whether you need a handlebar brake, we share our experiences observing how children ride.

Adjustable seat heights and handlebars will influence the riding experience and performance, so it is vital to be able to dial in your bike to suit your child.

We consider how geometry and weight proportion to its rider are essential and tell you the signals as to when they may be ready to transition onto pedals.
