The EZee Glider from Glide Bikes allows children to gain confidence, improve motor skills, increase coordination, and learn balance at their own pace all while having fun. Balance Bikes do not have training wheels and pedals to get in the way, so children learn the important first step in riding a bike- BALANCE. Pushing off with alternating feet as if the child were running from a seated position, the child can learn balance and control. Once the child becomes more stable they begin to glide with their feet off the ground. Glide Bikes also incorporates a unique foot peg system to allow kids to have a place to rest their feet while gliding. These pegs can be locked into place with one simple to use, tool-free pin allowing the foot pegs to be installed or removed in seconds.
Awards: 2013 TDmonthly Seal of Approval
— As of 10/5/2012 this product had 4.6 out of 5 stars from 14 reviews on Amazon.com. Pros: Air tires glide smoothly; bike is light enough for kids to handle; durable.
