A pair of good quality and stylish kids bike gloves is an essential accessory when you are buying some extras for your balance bike!
A good pair of gloves will help the rider look really cool, and they will also perform some essential safety functions such as extra grip and protection for the hands if they take a tumble or scrape their hands against walls, trees or other such hazards.
There are some really good looking kids bike gloves available, and we love the range that is offered by Kiddimoto! Kiddimoto bikes come in a range of funky designs including Pastel Dotty and Union Jack, and so Kiddimoto also offer a range of gloves to go along side their bikes.
The gloves feature padded palms for extra protection, Velcro straps to keep them secure on tiny hands and a fingerless style which allows the rider greater dexterity. The secure fit and adjustable straps means that one size fits all for all children from age 2 through to 6.
There are loads of different designs, but our favourites are the Neon Yellow Gloves, Red Dotty or the Rainbow Union Jack. These gloves are great value and are usually available for less than £10!
If you are looking for a good quality pair of kids bike gloves but without the styles and designs that Kiddimoto offer, then there are plenty of other gloves available from manufacturers such as Polaris and Tour de France.
Polaris is a company that specialises in bike wear, so their Polaris Controller Junior Mitts are a superb choice for a quality pair of Kids Bike Gloves. The gloves feature padded palms and a lyrca backed fabric which provides breathability and comfort. Velcro straps provide a secure fit and kids will look like professional little riders in these gloves.
The smallest size of the Polaris Controller Junior Mitts is intended for children age 5-6, so these gloves may not be suitable for the younger balance bike riders.
A final choice is the Tour de France Kids Gloves, which will help your child practice just in case they love their bike riding so much so they enter the real race in the future! These gloves also offer non slip palms and a fingerless style, and they are a bargain with prices starting at just £3.99!
There are plenty of other accessories available for balance bikes, although one essential purchase is a good Kids Bike Helmet and Kiddimoto also offer a good range here.
So with so many options available for Kids Bike Gloves, it is worth the extra few pounds to really help your child feel like a real rider when they are enjoying their balance bike!
