We recommend the 16 inch XXlite for little boys who want to move on from a balance bike to a real bike.
The XXlite 16” is our stylish red 16 inch boys bike for little riders who are ready to move from a balance bike to a push bike. While the manufacturer recommends this boy’s bike from the age of 4 years or a height of 110cm, we think children who figured out the balance and steering are ready to move onto this bike as well. From experience we suggest an age from about 3 years or a height of 104cm.
The bike comes standard with a chain protector for safety and to ensure little trousers are not stained with chain oil, back and front reflectors, a front hand break and a back pedal break.
The saddle is adjustable with a quick-release function for fast growing boys to enable usage for a longer period.
The XXlite 16 inch boys bike has safety grips on the handle bars. The cushioned impact protectors at the ends of the handle bars help protect children from injuries if they fall.
All of our bikes (balance bikes and kids’ bikes) have powder coated spokes, which typically last longer and hold up in the wet.
For extra safety we recommend wearing a suitable bike helmet. For further information on how to fit and wear a helmet correctly, please have a look here on our blog or ask an expert at your local bike shop.
