The Best Wheels For Children – Guide

What are the best wheels for children? Many parents know this – the children are eager to start cycling, however, all beginnings are difficult. As an adult, learning to ride a bike is associated with frustration and scraped knees. We want to show you how you can teach your child to ride a bike with fun and games.

We have researched and would like to present you the best bikes for children in this article.

We have not only compiled a checklist with the most important criteria for running bikes for children, but also many product recommendations for you.

After all, it is important to choose the right running bike for your child. Only then will he or she have lasting fun on the bike. Not only the age but also the respective stage of development is decisive.

Checklist For Wheels

Age Recommendation
  • Important: Your child must be tall enough to reach the ground with his feet. The leg length should correspond to the height of the saddle
  • Riding a running bike can be fun for toddlers as young as 18 months. You should make this individually dependent on the development of your child. Others are not quite as physically fit and can only be inspired from the age of 3 years. Always listen to your child’s feelings.
  • If you decide on a toddler model, please make sure that the saddle and handlebars are adjustable in height. Otherwise, you can buy a new wheel after one year at the latest.
Safety
  • In order for your child to be able to push off and brake properly, it should be able to support itself with both feet on the ground
  • Look for good quality. This can be recognized by a test seal (e.g. Stiftung Warentest), so that there is no danger for your child in this respect.
  • A safety helmet is urgently necessary because falls do not remain unavoidable. This prevents serious injuries and guarantees protection. However, you should still always supervise your child or, at least watch.
Manufacture / Material
  • Wide tires are especially appropriate for small children, as they bring additional stability. Rubber tires prove themselves best, since they can be driven well even on bumpy surfaces.
  • For children up to 3 years , the wheels are often made of wood . Unlike metal, this has the advantage of being lighter in weight, making it easier for little ones to use. Metal is more suitable for outdoor use.
  • Brakes: At first glance, they seem necessary, but toddlers can not yet handle them and should only brake with their feet.

At the age of one year, many children are particularly curious. If your child already wants to start cycling and explore the world, you can support him with the right running bike.

Running Wheels 10 Inch

For children from 1.5 years are particularly suitable running wheels with 10 inches. They ensure that the saddle is not too high and thus ensures a safe stand for your child.

Even at 2 or 3 years old, the playful aspect of your child is absolutely in focus. Since children learn quickly, the wheel may also be somewhat larger at this age.

For children from the age of 2 – 3 years are suitable wheels with 12 inches. Thus, your child can gain first experiences and playfully learn to ride a bike.
