FirstBIKE RACING balance bike has some features that can make you consider it a convertible. The seating height and the optional lowering kit make it be a very functional balance bike. This one has two mudguards to keep your kid clean off dust. The seat is something special, an original-horse saddle to prevent the kid fall from it when riding a slope. With this all-terrain bike your kids will successfully ride wherever they want.

We recommend this bike for intellectual kids, because they would enjoy learning how to ride a bike in an efficient way, discovering new ways of driving or learning about the details of their ride.

Metal balance bikes are a great choice if you feel you need something that works out fast enough for you and your kid and that is, for instance, no time-consuming.

Metal balance bikes are normally made by lightweight steel or aluminium tubes. Also, there are some bikes that use welded material to create innovative products, like First-bike and its flexibility.

World-renowned Schwalbe Big Apple tires for maximum traction on any surface.

Finishes

* The EXTRA feature

It incorpores mudguards in the front and rear wheels to prevent your kid from dirt and gravel.

Reflective stickers for a better visibility.

Seal industrial wheel bearings which prevents clogging by dirt.

Optional lowering kit, (LowKit TM) that allows younger kids ( even 22 months old) to ride. The seat height can be adjusted from 11.8″ to 15.8″ (30 cm to 40 cm)

The main difference between FirsBIKE series are the tires, therefore, the performance of the kids and the kind of road they are going to ride. Also, the possibility of choosing a brake or not.

 

TO TAKE INTO ACCOUNT

One of the safest bikes out there.

If you have a small kid, it is possible the frame stays too high for him to mount, even with the lowering kit.

For bigger kids or older than 5 years old, the flexibility can be an issue and make the ride a bit uncomfortable.

You can use it in all kind of weathers, even snowing (there’s an available snow kit). The bike will not have any weather-related damage.

Seal the tires to avoid flats.
