Looking for the perfect first bike for your 3-year-old and up?  The G-Bike + by Kickboard Canada is a super compact balance bike that allows little ones to learn how to balance their weight on a bike for a super easy transition to a regular bicycle without the need to install training wheels on it.

The G-Bike features a handbrake that adds to the big bike feeling and little ones love. This balance bike has non-marking polyurethane wheels as well which means that you can also use it indoors, perfect for the cold, rainy winter!

Our 3-year-old loves his new G-Bike and he has a lot of fun “pedaling” down the sidewalk while learning to keep his balance and coordination. He loves using it indoors as well and I really like how silent the wheels are.


The G-Bike is safe as he keeps both his feet in reach of the ground while he is riding it and I appreciate that the handlebars and the saddle are adjustable.  The polyurethane wheels also ensure a comfortable and smooth ride.

Something worth mentioning is that the bike comes almost completely pre-assembled. You just need to attach the handlebars and you are ready to go, no need to put together a million parts, so refreshing!

The G-Bike is a solid little bike that would make a wonderful Holiday Gift for a special toddler in your life. Be sure to visit Kickboard.ca to check out their selection of fun colours and to pick your own.
