We’ve all seen Giant bikes before – they cruise down the boardwalk by the beach, bomb down rocky mountain bike tracks, whip through the Alps on the Tour de France. Giant knows cycling, and so when we discovered their Pre Push balance bike we knew it would be quite an impressive specimen.
Pre Push ($199) has a lightweight, low, aluminium frame, designed for kids to easily get rolling. The wheels are 12 inches and the tyres pillowy and thick, making bumps in the footpath no match, and the saddle can be easily adjusted to accommodate children who grow like weeds, which probably describes every child that ever was or will be.
The balance bike comes in four colour combinations: bright blue and green, red and blue reminiscent of Superman, baby blue and shocking pink or full on princess pink and purple.
