Learn to Bike with a FirstBIKE Balance Bike

I love being outside with my kids. Due to our mild weather we are outside all year long. I always like hearing about new products that get my kids playing outside longer.

We recently received a new FirstBIKE street balance bike for my son to test out. I loved the look of this bike right away. It wasn’t at all like other balance bikes I had seen.

The street version of the FirstBIKE is perfect for my son. It’s air filled tires are designed for concrete, stone or packed dirt surfaces. The FirstBIKE is recommended for ages 2 to 5.

Cool Features of the FirstBIKE:

  • It has air filled tires
  • It has a hand brake! (yes… no using feet to stop!!)
  • It has an optional lowering kit
  • It has a saddle seat that helps kids stay on the bike
  • It has mudguards
  • It’s lightweight

My 4 year old son was so excited when his FirstBIKE arrived. We had to assemble it right away. Since he’s a “big boy” we didn’t need to use the lowering kit. I was very pleased with the size of the FirstBIKE balance bike. I could tell right away that he was comfortable sitting on it. I also noticed that he enjoyed having the hand brake to slow down and stop.

We’ve gone on some great bike rides with his FirstBIKE. I find that it handles really well. We’ve taken his FirstBIKE on the road, chip trails and at the park. We’re planning on taking him to the skate park with it soon so he can try some fun hills with it.

You can tell that the FirstBIKE is a quality product and will last a long time. I plan on passing it down to my niece when he’s outgrown it.

There are five different types of FirstBIKES available to purchase. They come in so many great colours and options. The street style that we received comes in 6 colours: pink, green, orange, light blue, blue and red.
