With the unique footrest, children learn balance and consequently learn to ride a pedal bike without ever using training wheels.

Suitable for children from 18 months up to 6 years. Maximum rider weight 35kg.

Why Trybike?

THE 2-in-1 CONCEPT

The Trybike Steel offers you 2 bikes in 1. The perfect bike for each step in your child’s early life.

QUALITY

The Trybike has been designed and developed in The Netherlands by Co&Co after many years of experience with balance bikes. We have applied our experience and selected the best materials, created the most durable construction and added the nicest details as well as a quality finish.

SMALL TURNING RADIUS

One of the biggest misconceptions about balance bikes is that bikes should have a small steering angle and therefore have an enormous turning circle. For that reason, you often see children lift the front wheel in tight corners. We have minimized the turning circle. Particularly in the early stages this will be very convenient.

SMART CONTROL DISC

Another great feature of the Trybike Steel is its control disk for the back wheel. This way you can get an even lower or higher seat position or increase or shorten the wheel base. Just create the perfect Trybike setting for all levels and skills of your child.

UNIQUE FOOTREST TO LEARN EVEN BETTER BALANCING

The Trybike Steel has an unique footrest which takes balancing to the next level. When your child is able to balance by keeping feet from the ground for some time it is possible to make the next step to a pedal bike. The only thing they have to learn now is to pedal and brake.

Don’t put on training wheels anymore. Most kids will master to ride a pedal bike within 1 or 2 hours when they have been experienced Trybike riders.

GIVE YOUR TRYBIKE STEEL YOUR OWN LOOK

Each bike comes with sticker sheets with loads of designs to choose from to customize your Trybike steel to your personal taste. Our stickers are made of durable vinyl with UV laminate, making every sticker withstand rain, wind and sunlight.

BEST RIDER POSITION

There are currently several tricycle balance bikes on the market but none of them have the correct dimensions nor proportions. The small inexpensive balance bikes have 8 or 10 inch wheels which are so small that they will only last for 3 to 6months before your child will outgrow them. Other large tricycle balance bikes have incorrect proportions so children will hit their heels against the long rear axle.

SIMPLE AND BASIS DESIGN

When we designed the Trybike we kept the bike as simple as possible. The short front and rear axle are identical and basic, without too many rings, tubes and other unnecessary parts. The long rear axle is also very basic but made of the strongest steel available. In short, simple and therefore durable and tough.

YEARS OF EXPERIENCE

At Co Co we have over 15 years of experience with balance bikes as distributers. However, we were not happy with the general quality, functionality and pricing of most bikes so we decided to create our own bike. We applied our experience and created the Trybike, the perfect bike.

SUSTAINABLE

The Trybike is a clever and has a durable design. The production
methods and the choice of materials used are smart and sustainable. Also, every single part is seperately available so a Trybike can always be epaired if parts are lost or broken. This is what makes the Trybike truly sustainable.

Tip 1

Regularly check that all parts are secure and undamaged. In particular, the seat , handle bar and the wheel bolts.

Tip 2

The Trybike Steel is not suitable for storing outside, therefore our advice is: play outside and store inside.

Tip 3

Save the Trybike for your next child or pass it on to another child. This makes it truly sustainable.

Tip 4

In case your child is big, small or very skillful use the control disc in order to create the perfect Trybike setting for all levels and
skills of your child.

Tip 5

The Trybike is the best balance bike for children with a disability or a less developed sense of balance.

Tip 6

No more training wheels for a pedal bike!

The step following the Trybike is learning how to ride a pedal bike.
Without training wheels since your child will not need those when it
started with a Trybike.

Maintenance + Instructions

Maintenance

Check regularly, certainly after 14 days after the initial installation, if all parts are secure and not damaged. Pay special attention to the handle bar, the wheel and the seat.


Tyres: We recommend a pressure of approximately 30 psi (2.0 bar). If you do not have a gauge this is a tension when you can press in the tyre a bit with your thumb. Do not over inflate the tire and risk a blowout! Max pressure is 35 psi.

Check the tyres and wheels for damage and correct tyre pressure regularly.

Cleaning: Clean Trybike only when needed and only use mild car detergent, warm water and a soft cloth. Afterwards protect the wood with beeswax.

Lubricate: Lubricate the axles and the bearings of wheels with normal bicycle oil.

Store: Store the Trybike in a warm, dry and ventilated area, and certainly not outside or in a humid place.
