Kazam Balance Bike Review

A decent quality bike available with air or foam tires, but the Kazam balance bike’s footrest is too wide for petite kids. Read the review below to see if a Kazam is a good fit for your child.

RATING: Recommended

BEST FOR: Less adventurous riders who are more likely to stick to gliding on their bikes versus hitting the pump track or skate park. Wide footrest makes it less ideal for petite riders.

We tested out the Kazam balance bike v2e model with our three-year-old tester in 3T clothes.  He took to the Kazam right away and certainly had fun from the get-go.

Kazam v2 fun

Not used to having a footrest, he didn’t use it, but the footrest was properly placed out of the way of his stride.  The foam tires held up fine in the dirt, but were a bit “looser” in the dirt than air tires. After about 10 minutes of riding, however, he decided he changed up his typical bike riding routine and started being extra silly on the bike.

Kazam v2 leg

Being a three-year-old, I didn’t think much of it until I looked a little closer.  The rear portion of the frame was actually rubbing against the inside of his leg while he was riding.  While it certainly wasn’t hurting him, it was bothersome.

Kazam v2 frame
In the end, he still had fun on the bike, but the new v2 frame design wasn’t the best fit for him.  Being petite, he has had several problems with other bikes being too wide as well, so the problem certainly isn’t unique to Kazam.  For average sized kids, the new v2 is probably fine, but for petite kids, I would consider another bike.

Bottom Line

Too wide for petite kids, the Kazam balance bike v2 frame is best for average to larger sized kids.
