Description

"The Brum Brum" balance bike differs from everything that exists so far. It lifts riding for 2 to 5 year-olds into a new dimension of joy. Thanks to the U-shaped plywood frame, the bike provides a unique natural suspension and protects the spine of little riders exceptionally well. By adjusting the height the wheelbase changes too. This allows the bike to grow proportionally, along with the kid. A weight of 3.9 kg and a jack-knifing secure 45° steering angle offer great mobility. The tires are puncture proof, the discs are solid and one single construction screw makes assembling super easy while decreasing maintenance. A big challenge is to produce locally while keeping the price affordable.
