Special Needs Balance Bikes For Kids of All Abilities

Too often people with cognitive or developmental disabilities have been unable to ride a bike. Perhaps having been told by doctors and other health care providers that they will never be able to ride a bike. With the proper bike and a proven method to learn, this is changing!

For several years now, parents of children with special needs have been approaching us. They tell us how life-changing balance bikes have been for their children. Kidvelo’s range of lightweight balance bikes is providing a means for inclusive social interaction and play. Suddenly, a child that had previously been sitting inside, while the other children rode their bikes is now riding right alongside up with them, grinning ear to ear.

Kids and adults of all abilities can experience riding a bike with special needs bicycles. Adaptive bikes are specifically designed for people with physical and developmental disabilities. They offer an enhanced sense of freedom and mobility to those with Autism, Down Syndrome, Cerebral Palsy, and more. These vehicles strengthen coordination, balance, and other skills in an accessible way.

There are options for all ages, from toddlers to adults. If traditional pedaling is difficult, you can get a Balance bike to learn balance, control, and steering while helmets and head support provide safety and comfort. With the right assistive products, anyone can benefit from the fun and exercise of a relaxing bike ride.

More than Just a Bike!

Our range of Lightweight balance bikes is also proving to be FUN tools for Physio Therapists and teachers alike! What used to be boring exercise has turned into a game of riding a bike1 Several PhysioTherapists have told us they are skipping the special needs equipment and are using our balance bikes as a reward. Children aren’t even aware they are still performing an important range of motion, flexibility, strengthening, endurance, balance, and many other body mechanic skills by simply riding a balance bike!
