The Rennrad is S’COOL’s patented balance bike which converts to a regular push bike.
This clever bike is both balance bike and push bike in one structure. From as young as 3 years or a height of 95cm, children can use it as a balance bike to develop their sense and skill for balance and steering. When they are confident with their balance the Rennrad can be modified into a push bike.
The advantages of the Rennrad convertible bike are multiple:
Firstly, when children are able to cruise and balance with ease, the pedals and chain set can be attached to convert the balance bike into a push bike. Transition from a balance bike to a push bike is made very easy as the children are already familiar with how to ride and balance this bike. They now only have to learn how to pedal, which is typically achieved in a very short time.
Secondly, the Rennrad has a longer life span and is suitable for children from 3 until the age of 6.
The Rennrad is easily changeable from a balance bike into a standard push bike, by mounting the provided pedals and chain to the bike frame. The mounting kit comes standard with the bike. With your purchase, the Rennrad also includes a front hand brake, a bell, a front reflector and orange spoke reflectors for better visibility and safety.
All of our bikes (balance bikes and kids’ bikes) have powder coated spokes, which typically last longer and hold up in the wet. Our entire balance bike range comes standard with pneumatic tires.
The Rennrad 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. Kids’ safety is further enhanced with the Allen key saddle post tightener, rather than a quick-release which we believe is one less thing to worry about in avoiding injuries with little fingers getting caught. The Germans agree with us, too.
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.
