YBIKE Original

Enjoy the freedom of the outdoors and the joys of cycling from as early as 2 years old. The YBIKE will help your child develop an early sense of balance and control, along with independence, self-confidence and happiness!

Kids who tested the bike for 20-30 minutes twice a week showed the following improvements:

  • Recommended age 2 - 4 year olds, but can be used by most kids over 2 years old and weighing less than 50kg. Many 5 - 8 year olds enjoy playing with YBIKE!
  • Max weight 50kg
  • Height 46cm
  • Height (seat-floor) 26cm
  • Length 84cm
  • Width 30cm
  • Weight 3.5kg

Whats the idea?

Studies conducted at the University of Stellenbosch in South Africa showed that children who used YBIKE over a 2 week period showed up to 700% improvement in some cases in various tests of their balance and co-ordination skills. Incredible!

Apart from a really cool and appealing design YBIKE has been very cleverly engineered to help with a child's overall Motor Skills / Balance Skill development. It has just enough stability and at the same time instability that will teach children from 2 - 4 years old to learn balance. See video for explanation. The idea is that it will tilt over a little bit, so that the child is encouraged to learn balance.

If used enough there is a good chance that your child can progress to a normal bicycle at the age of 3 or 4 without having to use training wheels / stabilizers.

Award winner

YBIKE is new and so far has only entered in a few awards, but it is important to highlight the ones it has won!
