The Cruzee Bike is the lightest balance bike out there

Buying your kid’s first bike is an important purchasing decision. Buy one that is too heavy or bulky may result in a lack of interest from your kid. Buy him or her the right one though and we guarantee you will start a love affair with cycling that will last a lifetime.

With an abundance of balance/ strider bikes available these days, it can be hard to sort the good from the bad. To help you out, we have put together a comprehensive guide on what to look for when buying your kid’s first bike. If you are after a second hand kid’s bike, don’t worry, we have that covered too.

We have to say that along with Frog Bikes, one of the stand out Balance Bikes to us is the newly launched Cruzee.

The Cruzee is a real box ticker – price, safety, spec, colours and adjustability – this brand has put thought into its products. The Cruzee is the lightest balance bike out there, weighing in at just 1.9kg (light enough to hang off the back of the pushchair). Addressing the problem of growth spurts, the bike has quick release clamps on the bars and seat and even comes with an extra long extended seat post which is included in the very competitive price of £99.99.
