Weeride are well known for their range of excellent bike seats, but they also produce award winning balance bikes that are well worth considering when you are looking for the best balance bike.
Most children will get their first balance bike between the ages of 2 and 3, but Weeride balance bikes target the very young cyclists and are aimed at toddlers that are just 18 months old!
Weeride First Balance Bike
- Step through frame
- Adjustable saddle from 31cm
- Soft saddle with carry handle
- Non slip, rubber air tyres
The Weeride range is simple to explore as they offer just two makes of bike, starting with the Weeride First Balance Bike. This will be a great introduction to cycling for the very youngest children, with a stylish metal frame that comes in a range of colours including pink, silver, red and green.
One of the defining features of the Weeride First Balance bike is the easy step through frame which makes the bike manageable for young riders, and the seat is adjustable from 31 – 42cm which means that the saddle height can be changed as your child grows.
The bike has been recently improved with a soft saddle that makes for a comfortable ride and also comes with a carry handle for parents. This comes in handy when your child has had enough of riding and you end up carrying the bike!
The Weeride First balance bike now includes pneumatic air tyres with an angled valve, a rear band brake for extra safety and safe non slip hand grips.
The seat height of just 31cm makes this bike comparable to the Puky LRM Learner bike and the Strider Classic as a bike for younger children as these bikes both have saddle heights of 29cm. It is marketed as being suitable for children as young as 18 months if you think they will be ready to start riding by then!
All of our recommendations for this age group are in our guide to best balance bike for 2 year old. The Weeride First Balance Bike is generally available for around £70.
Weeride Deluxe Balance Bike
If you are shopping for a slightly older child or need a bike larger than the Weeride First Balance bike, then your next option from Weeride is the Weeride Deluxe Balance Bike.
This is a much larger bike that is designed for children aged 3 up to 5 or 6 that are not ready to ride a pedal bike yet, and it is a quality bike with a 14 inch frame, a beautiful Weeride paint finish and a stylish two tone seat.
The 14 inch wheels make this a great choice for older children as many other models use bikes with a 12 inch frame, and the seat height ranges from 45cm – 52cm which also makes it a great choice for this age range.
The Weeride Deluxe Balance bike also features proper air tyres which provide a comfortable ride, a rear hand brake and safe non slip hand grips. Available for around £90, this is not a budget option but the quality finish in silver or red from Weeride means this will be one of the best looking bikes in the playground.
