Older Kids Balance Bike Comparison Chart

Kids who start off on a balance bike at age 4 or 5 have different needs than a child who starts off at 1 or 2.  

Bikes with a larger frame, air tires and a hand brake are greatly beneficial to older kids.  After testing out over 30 different balance bikes, here are our top picks for older riders.

The chart may be sorted by clicking on the header of each column (works best in desktop).

For additional breakdowns, including our rankings, see our Best Balance Bikes for Older/Taller Riders list.
