Why a Balance Bike?

We all want to give our child the best start when learning how to ride, and making the right decision can be difficult. In the past, the tricycle and then a bike with training wheels was the obvious learning path and most of us remember our own training wheels experience…. Ouch.

Let’s face it training wheel are plain dangerous and cumbersome. A Balance Bike changes all that. A two-wheeled pedal-less bike that teaches kids as young as 18-months to balance on two wheels. In a short amount time toddlers and kids learn to ride, jump and coast on their bikes with no assistance.

What to look for in a Balance Bike?

As parents, we all know the importance of making the right choice when purchasing for our children. Especially when that purchase involves helping our children learn new life skills, like riding a bike.

A Balance Bike should be:

  • Lightweight – So your child can move around without becoming too tired.
  • Safe – With smooth edges to prevent injury
  • Adjustable – The bike needs to grow with your child
  • Durable – Tough enough to survive whatever your child throws at it
  • Most of all.. Fun! – Learning to ride should be a fun and unforgettable childhood experience

Lightweight AND EXTREMELY durable!

I'm old school and found it hard to believe that a toddler could figure out how to balance a bike at just 2 years old. It took maybe a month of walking the bike around the house before he started 'riding' and 4 months in, my now 27 month old runs, glides and takes hills and turns like a pro. Scares me to watch him sometimes but he rarely falls as the bike is so lightweight that he can control it down hills and on turns. The most impressive thing about this bike, however, is it's strength in spite of the weight. Our bike was left in the driveway one afternoon and we accidentally backed over it with our RAV4. My heart sank because it was only a couple months old at that point. I got out of the car and to my utter amazement, the bike was completely fine except for a few scratches! Definitely recommend this bike!

Filled with Helium!

We bought a green cruzee for our 2 year old grandson because it was advertised as Ultralight. We were blown away with how light it actually is. Feels like it's filled with helium. Also really easy to put together. Best way to spoil your grandchild!!

The Cruzee balance bike is awesome!

Being new to the idea of balance bikes and after reviewing their benefit I decided to get one for my 3 year old son. I actually went to a bike shop and bought a Strider. It seemed good but the rear wheel bolts bruised up son's ankle on his first ride outside. Disappointed I went on line to see if there is a fix for this and then discovered the CRUZEE ! Its recessed bolts is what I was looking for. A bit hesitant on the price I still ordered it. When it came in the mail I saw that this bike was worth every penny. Its an amazing bike and my son loves it. He handles it so well and its so lightweight. And the body itself and the color is great. I can't wait until they make pedal bikes for when my son will ride a regular bicycle. Way to go Cruzee 🙂

Best balance bike!

This thing is amazing. It's SOOOO light weight! My daughter just turned two and she can sit on the seat and reach the ground comfortably, which was a problem with other bikes like this. She also has no problem carrying it around- it's light as a feather. The purple has a little sparkle to it which is fun!

We have it indoors with her toys until she gets better at riding it

My 2year old ran straight to it. She loves it. She is Still trying to figure out how to sit and walk it but she picks it up every day. We have it indoors with her toys until she gets better at riding it.

I've had hamburgers that weighed more than this thing!

Not really. But man, you won't believe how weightless it seems. A very good thing, if you have a little guy. Actually, he's a little too small yet, (21 mos), feet don't quite hit the ground even in the lowest position. A few more months oughta do it. But I can tell it'll be great. This thing is quality. My dh, a cyclist, was gushing over the aluminum frame, quality construction, solid wheels. He's not easily impressed, but this bike did the trick!

Great sturdy and lightweight balance bike!

My daughter appeared ready to start learning how to ride a bike, even though she's only 3. Being a bit petite, we wanted a lightweight training bike with a seat that could lowered to her height, and after reading what seemed like hundreds of reviews of other bikes, we opted for the Cruzee. The balance bike is perfect! It is VERY lightweight, even she can lift it up with ease, the seat lowers to her height (she's 33" tall) and the seat is just above the rear tire. The bike looks well-made, very professionally done, nothing cheap here. Tires are tough with plenty of nubbies, and it's good to know that you don't need to fill it with air. The hand grips are the right height, so geometrically speaking, the rider's body is well-positioned to move forward when feet are off the ground but angled well to place both feet to stand upright. We didn't get a chance to use it enough to get her used to it last fall, but look forward to it this spring once all this snow melts! She still likes cruising around indoors, and it's good that the tires won't damage the hardwood floors either, and they don't slip/slide the way plastic tires would. I highly recommend this balance bike.

Fun and Fantastic!

We purchased this for our grandson's second birthday and he absolutely loves it. He climbed on right away and headed down the hallway. It is so lightweight that when he falls he can right himself and the bike with no assistance. And since he always wants to do things himself, this is a plus! We are really looking forward to him being able to go outside to ride. As avid bike riders ourselves we are thrilled to introduce the activity to him in this way. I wish we had known about the Cruzee sooner, all of our grandchildren would have one.

This was the best Christmas gift we found for our 2 year old grandson. I read the reviews and it said the Cruzee Balance Bike would be good for 18 months to 5 years. We thought it was perfect and he wouldn't need a trike or a bike with training wheels. The questions was how long would it take him to get the hang of it. Well, he opened the box and started unloading the pieces and was trying to put it together right away. With the help of Grandpa and Daddy, it was together in a few minutes. He got on and took off across the living room saying, "Wow!" We knew we had made the right decision. The bike is well made and easy to assemble.It is lightweight, so very easy to pickup and move for a child. We can't wait for spring to come, so he can take it outside and really get moving. I don't know how we will ever top that reaction in the future!
