The Scoot XL balance bike is manufactured by Ridgeback, who have been established for over 30 years and have grown from offering a single mountain bike to a wide range of cycles and accessories.
The Ridgeback Scoot XL balance bike is for slightly older children than most balance bikes, with 14 inch wheels and a saddle height starting at 40cm. Other balance bikes with 14 inch wheels include the Weeride Deluxe and the Frog Tadpole Plus balance bikes.
It sits towards the top end of the balance bike market in terms of price with a wide range of excellent features.
The Scoot XL balance bike looks like a quality bike, with a sturdy, but lightweight alloy frame, a stylish design and air tyres on alloy rims.
As already mentioned, the larger wheels and higher saddle make this bike more suitable for 4 - 7 year olds who have not previously tried a balance bike or who don’t yet have the confidence to progress and use a pedal bike.
This bike comes with air tyres, so this provides a comfortable ride as the tyres will provide plenty of ‘give’ when riding over rough surfaces or up and down kerbs etc.
Riders of the Scoot XL balance bike also love the wide handlebars, which allow a more natural riding position and also contributes to comfort.
Final features of this balance bike are an adjustable hand brake (great for older children), a carry handle, a bell and safety handlebars to help protect small hands in the event of a fall.
The Scoot XL balance bike makes a great choice for a quality balance bike, especially for children aged between 4 -7.
