Ryan McFarland, Founder… "The 12 Sport model offers every feature a child (or parent) could want. It is the perfect balance of performance, options, and value, featuring more than 8 years of design evolution and manufacturing improvements."

This model is similar to the previous ST-4 balance bike, but includes updated graphics and an extra-long seat post.

EVA polymer (industrial foam) tires are super light and durable yet offer a smooth ride. Best of all, they never need air and will never go flat.

Smaller, narrower, and lighter than a typical saddle, our padded seat allows for proper riding position and posture. Includes 2 seatposts for growing children, allowing seat-height adjustments up to 48 cm (19 in).

Unique, frame-integrated footrests are properly positioned directly below the saddle for natural bike balance. This position also fosters the advanced ability to stand while gliding as well as pumping and jumping the bike.
