The easiest way for the little one to learn the balance and skills required to ride on their own someday is on a balance bike, and the Specialized Hotwalk Kids bike is ideal. When choosing a kids bike there are a number of variables to consider. From a size point of view, kid's bike sizing is based on wheel size. You want your child to be in control and be able to enjoy the bike to its full potential, so a correctly sized bike is a must.
It is easy to think the child will grow into the bike but a bike too big will be dangerous, difficult to handle and less enjoyable to ride. What type of bike is the next decision. For youngsters, up to the age of 4 years old, starting out in the exciting world of cycling, a balance bike is a nice choice. This enables the child to gain confidence and improve their balance and coordination before mastering the art of pedalling.
