Smoothy Balance Bike - £89.99

The Vitus Smoothy Balance Bike

A lightweight premium balance bike and arguably one of the most important bikes in the Vitus range. The Smoothy gives kids total confidence from their first ride.

The Vitus kids range is designed to make progression easy, helping learn those essential skills that will stay with them for life, whilst maximising the fun. A no compromise design approach and expertly selected components, result in a bike that’s not only one of the lightest on the market, but let’s be honest…you’d actually quite like to ride it yourself.

The Smoothy features a unique cast Magnesium frameset, that has allowed us to create an extremely functional, yet awesome looking bike. Within the design, we have incorporated a useful carry handle for Mum & Dad, and some integrated footrests for that game changing moment when your child has the confidence to glide.

We’ve taken inspiration from our adult bikes for the steering controls, with the headset upper and lower bearings making the steering control smooth and reliable, with 20mm of spacers under the stem allowing you to fine tune the height of the handlebars. A shorty stem and quality set of aluminium handlebars with slight back sweep, and some soft and comfortable TRP grips round out the front of the bike.Saddles are often overlooked on balance bikes, but definitely not here. We have a specially designed balance bike saddle that features a ‘scoop’ shape so your child will be sat in the correct position all of the time. This ensures they can steer effectively and are positioned perfectly, giving themselves the best possible change of balancing effectively. Our seatpost is fully height adjustable allowing room for growth

The lightweight wheels feature a set of premium aluminium 12 spoke hubs, helping to keep weight to a minimum, and giving the bike a very cool look. We’ve fitted CST IRONKID 12 x 2.1” tyres which have been carefully chosen to deliver excellent rolling capability on both hard or soft ground, so the bike remains efficient to glide no matter what the surface.
