FirstBIKE® Hits the UK

Internationally acclaimed balance bike designed to be the safest on the market!News-First-Bike

FirstBIKE® is a new balance bike designed specifically for children between two and five years.

Balance bikes are the best way to introduce children to cycling whilst fostering a love of riding at the same time. Children develop balance naturally themselves increasing their confidence and ability to ride further. Having learnt on a balance bike children transition smoothly to a pedal cycle.

FirstBIKE was designed by Ralf Coerschulte, an avid German cyclist, product designer, and father of three, with one goal: to build the safest and best balance bike for young children, allowing them to learn to ride a bike intuitively and without stress.

After years of fine-tuning and testing, Ralf succeeded in creating a unique product that is deemed to be the safest in its category. Thanks to its glass fibre injection-molded composite material which is strong and flexible you can also enjoy year round cycling with FirstBIKE with no risk of scratching, splintering, swelling or rust!
