Chillafish balance bikes cater for all ages with bikes ranging from the Bunzi balance bike for very small children through to the Jack & Josie and BMXIE for a cool and stylish off road ride.
Chillafish BMXie-RS balance bike
- Cool and stylish BMX design
- High quality fibre glass frame
- Airless Rubberskin tyres for grip and appearance
- Seat height from 32 - 39cm
- Ideal bike for 3 year olds
£55 - £60
The Chillafish BMXie-RS balance bike has a cool and stylish BMX design, so it looks great and also performs very well with a range of quality features.
This bike is great to use on more uneven surfaces like the park or rough trails, as it now includes Airless Rubberskin tyres for excellent grip and performance.
These tyres includes a foam core so they do not puncture, but an outside rubber layer gives them the appearance of real tyres. This provides a great combination of good grip with no need to pump the tyre up.
The frame is made from high quality fibre glass material, which sets it apart from the competition and makes it very light and easy to handle. Other clever features include a detachable footrest which can be stored under the frame
Kids will also love the number plates as well as the sticker set for customisation.
The seat is adjustable, which is the case with most balance bikes and with a seat height ranging from 32 – 39cm it will be suitable for most 2 to 5 year olds.
You may find that 32cm is a little high for most 2 year olds, so consider a Strider or Puky bike as an alternative which start at 29cm. You can check out our recommended balance bikes for 2 year olds in our guide.
We think this bike is ideal for 3 year olds, with the perfect saddle height, a great value price and some excellent features that should see your child all the way through to a pedal bike.
The Chillafish BMXie-RS is perfect for riders who prefer a BMX and off road style with a superb design, high quality specification and it is really fun to ride.
It is available in several colours including blue, green, red, pink and yellow and generally available for between £55 and £65.
Chillafish Bunzi Balance Bike
- Can be converted from a tricyle to a balance bike (no tools)
- Great introduction to balance bikes
- Very low saddle height from 22cm
- Indoor or outdoor use
The Bunzi balance bike is an extremely clever design as a unique 2-in-1 balance bike that can be converted from a 3 wheel tricycle into a 2 wheel balance bike without the need for tools.
This means that it is suitable for younger children from around 12 months, and the extra stability provided by the 3 wheels means they will soon be racing around the living room and enjoying life on their bike.
The seat position is low to the ground on the 3 wheel bike, which makes it easy to ride and an ideal way to learn the principles of steering and using your feet to get along.
The Bunzi balance bike can then be converted by removing the seat and changing the bike into balance mode, but if you find your child isn’t quite ready for this yet you can switch between the modes as often as you like.
The seat is adjustable on the Bunzi balance bike (from 22cm in 3 wheel mode to 25cm in 3 wheel mode), and this is essential as children grow very quickly at this age!
The bike is made from lightweight high quality ABS material which makes it very light, and it is also easy to carry with the seat handgrip.
Another clever feature is a hidden storage box in the seat which means that your child can bring along their favourite toy, a snack or a drink for the ride.
The Chillafish Bunzi balance bike is a really exciting option which makes cycling a lot of fun for very young children. It is great introduction to balance bikes and the anti-skid, non-marking rubber synthetic tyres means it is ideal for use both in and out of the home.
Chillafish Jack & Josie Balance Bikes
- Sturdy bike for older 3 or 4 year old
- Steel V-tube frame
- Clever floating footrest feature
- Wide handlebars for easy steering
- Saddle height from 36cm - 43cm
£50 - £55
The Chillafish Jack & Josie balance bike is aimed at slightly older children aged 3 and above, and differs from the BMXie with a more retro style.
Jack & Josie is available in two very different colours, and you can choose between a bike with black frame and a flame design or white frame with flowers.
Both bikes consist of a steel V-tube frame for strength and durability, and a clever feature of the Jack & Josie bikes is the floating footrest for easy balancing while the riders are on the move.
The seat is also adjustable on these bikes, and with the seat height beginning at 36cm it is definitely a bike for older 3 years or above. The maximum saddle height is 43cm.
Jack & Josie balance bikes are also equipped with wide handlebars for easier steering control as well as 12 ½ inch inflatable tyres.
Jack & Josie bikes are generally available for around £50.
All of these beautifully engineered bikes from Chillafish are extremely high quality, so although they may be more slightly expensive than other bikes on the market you will definitely get what you pay for and the bikes should retain a high resale value.
The Chillafish balance bike range caters for all balance bike riders from toddlers just learning to walk to more experienced riders ready to try some tricks on their BMXie or Jack & Josie. Enjoy the ride!
