Smart Balance Bikes by Smart Gear, often referred to as "run bikes" or "balance bikes", which are pedal free and without training wheels, first and foremost help a child develop the most important skills necessary to later ride a 2 wheel bicycle with pedals: BALANCE and MOTOR SKILLS.
Smart Balance Bikes were designed to develop a child's balance and coordination by simply allowing the child to sit and walk or run with the bike by pushing with their feet. If the bike starts to fall, kids instinctively regain their balance using their feet. Once they've gained some momentum and balance control they can lift their feet up as they feel comfortable and start cruising. Traditional toddler bikes with "training wheels" don't necessarily train or teach a child how to ride a bicycle.
Children learn to balance and riding while boosting their confidence. No pedals! No training wheels!
