Wishbone - 3-in-1 Bike - Original
A balance bike is a fun way that your child can learn to master bike riding.
They are a no pedal, no brake bike designed for young children made from sustainably harvested birch and eucalyptus wood. Wishbone bikes have rubber safety grips on the handlebars to avoid little hands from slipping. Biking provides children with excellent exercise and helps to develop gross motor skills such as balance, steering and coordination.
A Wishbone Bike evolves as your child develops. Beginning as a trike, it converts to a small balance bike and then you can flip the frame over to make it one of the largest balance bikes available.
Made from kiln dried wood and wheels made from 60% recycled plastic and with packaging made from re-cycled card this bike is eco-friendly and safe for your growing child.
There are four basic skills entailed in riding a bike.
Balancing and steering are the trickiest ones to learn and once they are conquered, pedalling and braking are easy to add on to your skill list when graduating to a pedal bike. Wishbone bikes recognise that it is easier to learn to balance before pedalling. Put that way, it's irrational that most people learn how to pedal first.
This is where a Wishbone Balance Bike comes into play!
With their low centre of gravity they separate the skills of steering and balance from the skills of pedalling and braking.
Children learn to balance as they just scoot along the ground with their feet, Flintstone-style, in order to speed up and then raise their feet to coast along. To stop or to slow down they soon learn to drag their feet on the ground.
Steering is easy with the sturdy Wishbone handle and the ride is smooth due to the pneumatic rubber tyres.
Spare parts are readily available so the bike can be handed down and used by all the children in your family.
The correct choice of bike is vital. The child must be tall enough to straddle the bike, sit on the seat at the lowest setting, with their legs slightly bent and their feet flat on the ground before they can start to use it. So they will need to be around 18months of age. Wishbone bikes are fully height adjustable. Not only does the seat post adjust from 28cm to 46cm but the whole frame can be ‘flipped’ making the whole bike higher.
A Wishbone bike can transform from baby walker & push tricycle to small balance bike to large balance bike making it is one of the smallest and one of the tallest balance bikes on the market!
Once they are riding their bike confidently, you may notice that their confidence improves across other areas of their lives too.
All parts / replacement parts are available separately so while it may sound expensive up-front a Wishbone Bike is a lasting investment for your child.
Always ensure that your child wears an Australian Standards approved helmet.
Your child will spend more time outside, so get ready to run!
