Trek's Kickster gets the next generation learning their balance early, and way faster than with training wheels. The low saddle lets little legs reach the ground and zoom along. A built-in steering limiter prevents them from turning too sharply, increasing confidence. A foot rest lets them try balancing as they get better. And the lightweight aluminum frame sports a height-adjustable post and handlebar so the Kickster can grow with your little superstar.
Kickster is ideal for kids who are roughly 34-40˝ tall.
Learning to balance
It's right for you if...
You're planning to raise the next Tour de France winner, and you want to start training early! Learning to ride is a lot easier once you learn balance. Kickster is a balance bike that can help your kids skip the training wheels and go straight to a two-wheeler in no time.
The tech you get
Kickster has a lightweight aluminum frame with a super-easy stepthrough geometry that's perfectly designed for short legs. It's built with a steering limiter so kids can't turn the front wheel all the way around or turn too quickly, a handle so you can help them along the way, and 12˝ wheels with high-density foam tires that never need to be pumped!
The final word
Kickster makes teaching little ones how to ride an absolute breeze. Unlike training wheels, this bike lets kids learn how to balance at a young age, so they'll be confident and comfortable on a big kid bike in no time.
