Product Description

Police Balance Bike

Amazon.com

Designed for children from two years old and up, Smart Gear Balance Bikes allow children to learn the balance and motor skills necessary for biking, safely and naturally, without relying on training wheels. The two-wheel, pedal-free bike allows kids to run the bike along and eventually learn to coast with their feet up. This natural and kid-oriented approach to biking helps kids develop the confidence to balance the bike while moving and liberates them from the crutch of training wheels--so that they can bike earlier.

Coming in renewable birch wood with police graphics, this Smart Balance Bike lends itself to imaginative play and biking. Built for comfort, the bike features comfortable rubber grips, a cushioned leatherette seat, and a limited steering radius to prevent jackknifing. The pneumatic wheels provide a softer, more resilient ride, and are equipped with longer fill valves to make it easier to secure the pump to the tire. The spoke-less wheels are designed for greater safety--to prevent small legs from getting caught when in motion. A five-position adjustable seat with a height range from 12.5 to 17.5 inches allows the bike to grow with your child for years of use. Finally, a unique, integrated carry handle on the frame makes it easy for an adult to carry the bike to and from the car, and also allows a child to push the bike along more easily.

Key Features:

  • Pneumatic (inflatable) rubber tires with extra long tub valves
  • Spoke-less wheel discs
  • Rubberized handle bar grips
  • Limited steering radius
  • Cushioned leatherette seat
  • Unique, integrated carry handle
  • Intended for ages two years old and up
  • Five-position adjustable seat height--from 12.5 to 17.5 inches
  • Maximum weight of 60 pounds
  • Dimensions: 35 by 15.5 by 22 inches (LxWxH)
  • Made from replenish-able birch wood
  • Formaldehyde free glue
  • Non-toxic paints and lacquer
  • Carton made from recycled paper with water based ink printing

Sustainable Construction:
Smart Balance Bikes are made from birch wood that has been harvested from a replenish-able source. The bikes are built using formaldehyde-free glue as well as non-toxic paints and lacquer. The carton the bike comes in, is made from recycled paper with water based ink printing.

About Balance Bikes:
Traditional toddler bikes with training wheels don't necessarily train or teach a child how to ride a bicycle. The training wheels do not allow kids as much opportunity to feel the motion-propelled balance of two-wheel biking. By contrast, two-wheel balance bikes allow the child to run the bike along and learn to balance as they develop speed and confidence. As the child grows confident with their forward motion, they begin to lift their feet off of the ground and balance the bike as they coast forward. If the bike starts to fall, kids can regain their balance quickly and easily by dropping their feet to the ground.

Our oldest son, 3 yrs old has used a different balance bike in the past. We are giving that one to his younger brother for various reasons, and got him the smart balance bike. We got it, put it together and were VERY happy with the height as we have a tall 3 year old, and this will get him through the next year or two of growth spurts. He is only on the second lowest level.

What I am not pleased about is the seat. Its too wide for little legs. He said it hurt him, and stopped riding his bike. So, I had to take the whole bike seat apart, take off the seat padding, and have a woodworker friend of mine cut it down to an appropriate size using his old bike seat as a pattern. Really not happy that after I spent good money on a bike that I thought would work, I had to spend additional time/ effort/ money to "fix" the thing.

This is the second Smart Gear balance bike I've purchased. The first one I bought for my 2 1/2 year old granddaughter who is now 4 years old. Although she received a pedal bike this past Christmas with training wheels, it's collecting dust in the garage because she prefers her balance bike. So almost two years later, with the bike being dropped more often than not when she gets off it, it's still in great shape. I particularly like the cutout in the frame which makes carrying it easy when the little one is done riding. It's lightweight and portable. That being said, my 18 month old grandson loves his sister's bike, so I just bought him the Police Style version. He's thrilled to pieces. Although his little legs just about touch the floor, he already is balancing as we take turns bending over and guiding the bike. It won't be long before he joins his sister. I can't recommend this type of bike enough and particularly this brand. The value alone makes it a perfect choice and the quality is there to last a long time. I would definitely recommend this bike for all toddlers.

we purchased the police bike mostly because it was less expensive than the classic style smart gear balance bike. We already had one classic style and our twin boys were both enjoying the classic so much we wanted to get another. The police style sits more forward and is not ergonomic--it does not sit like a bike. My one son found it to be painful (in his inner thighs) and complained. We returned it and now waiting for another classic style.

My 4yr old son has been using this bike since he was 2.6 yrs old. He absolutely loves it! It's height adjustable which we liked and he was able to glide within two days of using it. My only problem was that since he is a tough little boy and kept using the garage door to stop himself it broke kind of quickly. But we fixed it and away he went! For the money I say it was worth it!

Bought this bike for my almost 4 yr old for Christmas and he loves it! From only 6 months of using it he is now able to use his other bike without the training wheels because of his improved balance. He still prefers to use the balance bike when we go out though
This bike is ideal because of the pneumatic wheels and the adjustable seat but is simple and the police design is great
Highly recommended!

We have Irish Twins that LOVE their balance bikes!! One of the bikes was a hand-me-down that must have been left out often as the wood started to crack and the seat was falling apart. We have gotten about 6 months out of that one, and decided he needs a NEW ONE! They are 2.5/3.5!
I suggest this to ANY PARENT/Greandparent out there!!! BEST money you will SPEND!!!

My 2yr old son and 2yr old nephew both have one and they love it. The biggest down fall with this product it that it cannot withstand any weather. We forgot it in the yard for 2 days (one of which it rained) and it has completley started to de-laminate and the seat fell off, not to be repaired easily I may add. I will be buying another but in plastic next time.
