Have you heard of a bike that has no peddles or chains? I hadn’t up until recently when I learned of Glide Bikes. As a parent, we have watched our children learn to ride a bike and most times have kissed booboos because of their falls. For ages, young kids have been learning to ride a bike using training wheels but using training wheels leaves out one important element and that is learning to balance!
The name “Glide Bikes” says it all, bikes that glide. The differences between these bikes and regular bikes as I mentioned before is the peddles, gears and chains. With Glide Bikes children use their feet as the “gas” and “brake”. If at any time they feel like they may fall they can put their feet down to stop the bike.
Glide Bikes carries different bikes and colors including the Ezee Glider, Mini, Go Glider and Super.
We reviewed the Go Glider in green which is for ages 5-10 and special needs.
Features of the Go Glider include:
- Lightweight for safe maneuver
- Durable, alloy frame featuring mountain bike geometry
- Quick release seat clamp allows easy height adjustments from 17-25″
- Durable 16″ Air Tires
- Adjustable stem on handlebars for custom fit
Even with training wheels my daughter has a hard time learning to ride a bike. After falling a few times her confidence hasn’t been very good and she has been scared to get on a bike again. I was happy for her that she would be able try this new bike out.
Upon opening the box I realized that it wasn’t going to be hard to assemble. Everything is pretty much put together except for a couple of things which makes it easier. My husband put it together in no time at all.
Check out our unboxing video below. =)
I have to say that my daughter has not stopped wanting to ride her Go Glider. At first she was hesitant but after getting on it and realizing she had control of the bike she loved it. It has really raised her confidence in bike riding.
I think that this bike would make an excellent gift for any kiddo.
What do you think of the Go Glider? =) What color would you get?
