Wooden 4-in-1 Trybike– Starting children off on a balance bike is a fantastic, easy and fun way to build their balancing skills, giving them confidence and a great foundation in preparing to ride a pedal bike. The Trybike allows little riders to learn and grow at their own pace, with this 4 stage tricycle-to-balance bike:
- Stage 1 : The low tricycle mode which offers a child support while starting to walk and ride from just 12 months of age.
- Stage 2 : Convert the low tricycle to a low bicycle. This is when the next stage of riding starts, keeping one’s balance.
- Stage 3 : Convert to the high balance bike. Just flip the frame and create the highest wooden balance bike on the market.
- Stage 4 : Convert the tricycle with the frame in Stage 3 position, serving primarily for fun or for extra support. Children with a disability and children who find it difficult to keep their balance will benefit from the high tricycle.
