BUILT FOR THE ROAD AHEAD
Our kids’ bikes are built based on a unifying belief—empowering little riders with the best first bikes will inspire a lifetime of riding. Each bike is the result of our designers pouring years of experience into developing the best fit, comfort, and quality that will foster your kid’s love of the ride. We created our four-step system to develop products in tandem with a rider’s growth path. From the moment their feet hit the pedals, they now have what they need to hit the roads ahead with skill and confidence for years to come.
Kick, Balance, Steer
At its core, riding is all about balance. It’s also the toughest part of learning to ride on two wheels, but with a nimble and light bike is can be a lot easier. Without pedals, kids can start learning the essentials and build confidence in their own abilities.

Pedal, Coaster Brake
Steps two and three are all about pedaling. Once they’ve got their balance, kids can control their speed with a mix of pedal work and braking. Not every rider needs training wheels once they’ve mastered step one but we’ve included them just in case.
Pedal, Handbrakes Now that balance is second nature when riding, riders learn to pedal while managing their speed with handbrakes. Introducing handbrakes at this stage allows for a smooth transition into more hand control in step four.
Here is where the riders put it all together. Now that they’ve mastered balancing, steering, and braking, they’re ready to shift gears and take on new hills and valleys. They can crank up the speed and explore whatever’s ahead. Here riders can choose the Jett if they’re riding on more paved surfaces or opt for the Riprock to tackle some dirt.
What’s the next step in your rider’s journey? We have lots to choose from in a size that will serve riders after the 24” bikes in step four. City cycling, trail seeking, or road racing—we’ve got it all.
READY FOR ANYTHING
As your little rider goes from pedaling to skid stopping, it’s important to make sure they’re fitted with the necessary gear to keep them safe. From the everyday rider two-wheeling around town to the trail riders carving through a dense forest, we’ve got everything they need to keep them safe.
