Cub was built to cultivate confidence and get little explorers comfortable moving around on two wheels. Cleverly designed with a step through frame that’s lower and narrower than most, this balance bike is easier for little riders to stand over and able to accommodate smaller children. It’s also growth spurt friendly, with a comfort seat that starts as low as 11” and adjusts to accommodate them as they grow, so they can start small and keep on riding – this bike will grow with them.

Grows With Them
With the widest possible range of height, starting as low as 11”, this bike was specially designed to accommodate major growth spurts. Having a wider range to adjust the seat and handlebars means this bike will be able to grow with them for quite a while, so your little cyclist can keep riding comfortably – even after tacking on a few extra inches.
Super Step Through Frame
This lightweight bike’s low-to-the-ground frame shape makes it easy to mount, stable, and safe, and its extra-narrow design allows for even the littlest of riders to comfortably balance and stride on the bike. Features a miniature city comfort saddle for cozy cruising.
Airless Tires
Can’t pop and reliably grip the pavement, making for an overall safer ride.
Grippy Footholds
Rear footholds with non-slip grip tape give them a place to safely put their feet while they master balancing on two wheels.
Easy Assembly
With no brakes, pedals, gears, or air-filled tires, this bike requires basically no maintenance. Less upkeep, more riding.

    Balance bike

    Very well made. Easy assembly. Loved the color, the perfect size for my two year old grandson. Took him just a few days to learn to balance. He’s got the biggest smile on his face, especially when he can keep up with his two older siblings. Would definitely buy again.

    my son LOVES this bike, he picked up on it super quick. he’s on the shorter side (23m) so i was worried it would be too tall but it’s perfect at the lowest setting! and it’s much lighter than other balance bikes we’ve used. 10/10!
