The new BMW Kids’ Bike lets riders avoid a wobbly beginning by starting out as a ride-on bike without pedals, allowing children to develop balancing skills until they are ready for the power of pedaling.
The user-friendly bicycle has an easy-to-install pedal system and an adjustable seat so it can grow with the rider.
By starting a biking adventure with their feet first, children can use the sleek two-wheeler BMW as a running bike, practicing steering and hand-braking skills, and developing a natural sense of balance at their own pace.
When young riders are ready, the sturdy plastic pedals and steel chain can be fitted to the BMW Kids’ Bike. The pedals have safety reflectors, and the pedal brake system features a hand-operated brake on the right handle bar and a back-pedal brake.
In the tradition of BMW technology and design, the Kids’ Bike features a resilient bike frame made of high-quality brushed aluminum. The striking frame is painted in bright blue and gray, or deep red and gray, with the BMW logo embossed on both sides of the frame. The top of the frame and the center of the handlebar have protective black padding, and the padded black bike seat allows for hours of optimal biking adventures.
Other safety features include an adjustable cantilever front-wheel brake, a child-friendly steering design and a controlled steering lock. There are reflector lights and a hand-operated bell on the left handle bar that rings as the child pushes the small lever down, alerting other bikers of their arrival.
The BMW Kids’ Bike retails for $300 and is intended for children ages three to six. It weighs approximately 16 pounds with the pedals and the maximum weight load for the Bike is 111 pounds. The frame ranges from 15 to 18.1 inches.
