Product Information

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!


Traditional toddler bikes with “training wheels” don’t necessarily train or teach a child how to ride a bicycle. The training wheels are merely a crutch that give the child a false sense of security and merely keep the child busy or entertained rather than actually helping the child develop the necessary skills to ride a bicycle.


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.

  • Wood harvested from a replenishable source
  • Formaldehyde free glue
  • Non Toxic paints and lacquer
  • Carton is made from recycled paper with water based ink printing

      great bike, BAD measurements

      Cons

        Best Uses

          Comments about Smart Balance Bike - Classic:

          I think I would have given these 5 stars, but the description measurements are off, which was a big problem for us. I ordered these for my almost-three-year-old twins. The concept is good and I think these bikes would have worked EXCEPT the measurements are off. The lowest seat position is listed in the description as 13.5" but the actual lowest position is 15". Unfortunately that 1.5" is the difference between my kids being able to put their feet flat on the ground to balance themselves and being only able to touch their tippy-toes, which doesn't give them enough balance to ride the bikes. I'm sure these bikes will be just the right size in a few months...about the time summer is over ;). Back they'll go for something (hopefully) smaller.

              Seems like a very sturdy, durable bike. It was easy for my husband to assemble, took about 15min without any special tools, just what was given to us. We bought it a little early, my son is 2 and at the 95% for height, and the bike is still too tall for him. I think it will be perfect though by 2.5yrs.

                Comments about Smart Balance Bike - Classic:

                I should have spent the few extra dollars getting the Skuut. That's what I really wanted. This is like a clone. It works and is ok, but it is NOT the original. Good luck!
