The 14-inch balance bike will make riding as easy as walking. It is essentially a child’s bike without pedals and is designed to introduce preschoolers ages 3 to 4 to the world of cycling, allowing them to develop the balance necessary to ride a bicycle. This premium child’s bike has a lightweight, sturdy aluminium frame, weighing just 4.18kg, making the bike easy to manoeuvre and easy for parents to carry.

The Tadpole Plus balance bike is a great alternative to training wheels. It comes fully equipped with high-spec age-specific components, designed for comfort and longevity.

The child-sized saddle with quick-release seat post allows for easy height adjustment as they grow and become more confident, and the Tektro brakes with small, easy-to-reach brake levers, mean better control for young riders. It also comes with chunky tyres for maximum stability and grip, and for added security, the bike offers the added benefit of a steering lock, which acts as a safety mechanism to prevent oversteering and serious falls.

Please note: Valve dust caps are not supplied with this model in order to adhere to safety regulations

Get sized for cycling success The Tadpole Plus balance bike is suitable for 3 to 4 years with a recommended inside leg measurement of 36cm-44cm.

One of the biggest temptations is to buy a child's first bike that they will grow into. However, this will likely have the opposite effect and put your child off bikes and cycling altogether! Another common mistake is to purchase a budget kids' bike but these models are often as heavy as a child which can lead to frustration at not being able to cycle. That’s why Frog bikes are lightweight and designed to specifically accommodate the anatomy of children.
