Laufrad and Mini Trainers
The KinderBike difference:
Alloy components, not plastic.
KinderBike trainers are formed using 6061 aluminum tubing and aluminum alloy components. The result is an extremely lightweight trainer that will last multiple generations of riders and perform better than any other trainer on the market. See what differentiates KinderBike trainers from all others:
LIGHTWEIGHT & DURABLE
All KinderBike trainers are fabricated with a 6061 aluminum frameset and alloy components. So, regardless of model, the trainer will be lightweight and highly durable. Plus, unlike steel, aluminum won't rust - ever! And, unlike plastic components (found on most run bikes) that bind, crack and wear out very quickly, KinderBike's aluminum components are extremely durable. MORE--->
DUAL ADJUST, QUAD-RAIL SADDLE
All KinderBike saddle enables two planes of comfort adjustment: angle and height. Most run bikes have a static angle saddle that causes unwanted applied pressure to the child's groin (see comparison). An angle-adjustable saddle alleviates this concern. Plus, the quad-rail support ensures an even distribution of weight over the entire saddle - preventing the saddle from breaking under the stress of riding. MORE--->
DUAL ADJUST, QUICK-STEP RISER
All KinderBike riser handlebars are dual-adjustable: up/down & forward/back. Most run bikes use a welded steel pipe bars that cannot be adjusted forward and back. A handlebar that adjusts toward/away from the rider ensures a much better fit for children of varied arm lengths and posture positions. MORE--->
LINEAR-PULL, ADVANCED BRAKING
All KinderBike trainers come with a linear-pull rear brake that can easily be removed/added at the parents discretion. The linear-pull brake (often called a V-brake) has three adjustable tension settings and is by far the easiest for young children to use. Moreover, it affords young children the benefit of learning how to brake BEFORE transitioning to a standard bicycle that moves at significantly greater speeds. Caliper & drum brakes (very difficult to use) and quirky foot brakes (not found on real bicycles) do not teach young children critical braking skills. The result is a child that transitions to a fast-moving bicycle without the proper knowledge of how to stop the bike. KinderBike trainers teach children ALL necessary aspects of bike riding, not just balance! MORE--->.
ALLOY, PNEUMATIC WHEELS
KinderBike trainers include rugged tread, aluminum pneumatic wheels, which have significant advantages over EVA plastic wheels (see comparison). The rugged tread ensures substantial gripping of the riding surface and minimizes flats resulting from thorns, tacks, glass, etc. Plus, the wheels spin smoothly and effortlessly, making it much easier for small children to ride.
