*Meet the Rock Star of Balance Bikes: The world-renowned Ridgeback SCOOT XL Balance Bike is designed to meet the challenging demands of kids age 4-8. Scoot’s perfectly proportioned 6061 aluminum frame provides the best fit for comfort and control. Scoot’s rear hand brake provides an early understanding of how to safely slow down and stop. Supplied with two seatposts for a seat range of 16″ to 22″, Scoot accommodates children age 4 to 8. The handsomely stitched saddle incorporates a handy carrying handle for convenience and Scoot’s domed wheel nuts and alloy V-brake complete the safety package. *How Scoot works: Without the complication of pedals, children are able to narrow their focus on stabilizing themselves and walking the bike. With a little practice, children sit on the saddle and gradually propel themselves with more confidence and speed. Eventually, forward momentum becomes sufficient to overcome gravity and balance is achieved! Ridgeback Scoot is well equipped for kids to safely practice shifting their body weight and correctly leaning into corners at speed. Once momentum, balance and cornering are mastered, proceeding to a conventional bike with pedals (without training wheels) is a simple formality. Congratulations! Scoot is going to build your child’s confidence, place them years ahead of their peers, and put them on the fast track to successful bike riding. *Specifications & Safety Features: *6061 Aluminum Alloy Frame *Inflated rubber all-terrain bmx tires *Aluminum 14″ wheels and full bearing hubs *Rounded dome nuts on wheels *Aluminum V-brake *Adjustable reach brake lever *Internally routed brake cable *Finely upholstered saddle with carrying handle *Quick release seatpost clamp *Two seatposts included! one short one long *Weight: 12.5 pounds *Seat height range: 16″ to 22″ *Handlebar height range: 21″ to 23″ *Some assembly required. *Bell included!
