VIDEO: Device weans kids off stabilisers and also works as grab handle

Balance Buddy cycling aid launches to the trade

Gates Green Imports is bringing the ‘Balance Buddy’ to the UK bike trade.

Designed to help parents wean their children off stabilisers and build confidence the Buddy can also be used as a grab handle. Parents can use the Balance Buddy as an aid to help push children home if they become tired, or to stop them trying to cycle off unaccompanied.

Balance Buddy is detachable and can fit any junior bike. Set to retail around £17.99 (inc VAT) the device promises to help build confidence in the junior rider.

One of Balance Buddy’s first UK customers said of the product: "The Balance Buddy has been a huge success – within a few minutes Izzy was riding her bike with confidence. We have tried so hard for over a year now, tears tantrums etc now she will actually ask to ride her bike, with help of course!"

Trade enquiries should be directed to Green Gates Imports on 01342 458099.
