Early Rider Charger 12" Kids Balance Bike 2-4 Years

Get them riding early, the Early Rider Charger rolls with minimal fuss inspiring the confidence kids need. Low slung lightweight aluminium frame provides a stable platform and at just 3.4Kg it is super easy for little ones to handle. Minimum standover height is 31cm.

Early Rider utilise quality parts throughout to ensure your child can focus on the fun stuff. Perfectly scaled geometry gets kids riding quickly and confidently and the beautiful brushed aluminium frame keeps the tubing and welds on display. Sealed cartridge bearing hubs ensure reliable low friction rolling in all conditions while the pneumatic 2" Vee Speedster tyres make for a smooth, supple, fast rolling ride. Reassuring Ritchey bar and stem and a familiar height adjustable seatpost.

We trust Early Rider balance bikes to get your children riding because they're what our children learnt to ride on. Every trip to the park or family walk soon becomes a new riding adventure. Push push... glide and skid to a stop. The fit for purpose design and quality components ensure children can make the most of every ride. Hone skills, gain confidence and most importantly, have fun.

Learning to ride without "learning" to ride. Early Rider are one of the pioneers of the balance bike movement, now widely accepted as the best way to teach children to ride a bike before they're ready for a pedal bike.

Key Product Ethics: Early Rider make quality bikes fit for purpose. Their focus on quality components ensure unrivalled longevity and thus resale value too. The importance of cycling cannot be overstated and ensuring children have the right tool for the job is paramount. When cared for Early Rider Charger can last many many children with replacement tyres, tubes and parts readily available. 

About Early Rider: Founded in 2005 by Andy Loveland who built the first Early Rider wooden balance bike in his shed. Since then Early Rider have been dedicated to getting children out riding bikes and connecting with their surroundings. They believe riding bikes shouldn't be a milestone or simply a means to get from A to B but a vehicle for adventure, a reason to shun screen time and inactivity. The kids bike industry is full of marketing waffle, genderisation, baskets, tassels, cartoon characters. Early Rider reject this path simply building awesome bikes.... in kids sizes. Motivation is precious when it comes to children, in making bikes fit for purpose, age appropriate and fit for the environments children will be riding in Early Rider aim to inspire confidence at every stage. There's no better way to connect with the world around us than to get riding a bike.
