Early Rider

Early Rider is well-known for their balance bikes and for their belt-driven bicycles.   They stand apart from other manufacturers of children’s bikes due to their extremely lightweight, incredibly cool and genuine quality bikes.
The range begins with the award winning Spherovelo ride on, whose unique design and stability settings is better at teaching toddlers balance and developing motor skills than any other bike.
Next comes the industry’s lightest and broadest range of wooden and aluminium balance bikes in 12” and 14” wheel sets, all featuring pneumatic tyres, sealed cartridge bearings and the beautiful Early Rider aesthetic that is consistent across the range.
Their flagship belt-driven bicycles, the Belters, start from the wheel size of 16” and now go up to 20”. The 16” Belter is a little over 5,5 kgs, which makes a huge difference compared to other, usually much heavier children’s bikes. The belt-driven system has its advantages of not stretching like a chain, and it will never get greasy or dirty, leaving your children`s clothing oil and dirt-free.
The 20” wheel Belters even have a SRAM 3-speed gear system, and the one with the highest price point is also equipped with Spinner Grind Air forks, not to mention its cable disc brake system.
Early Rider’s goal is to design products that make life, and the thrill of adventure, easy for young children to embrace in style.  Building bikes that enable children to get stuck in, whether it’s cruising around town or zooming through the woods, the bikes are only limited by a child’s imagination.
