What are the advantages of a balance bike over a scooter?
A balance bike – such as our woom 1 – has the advantage that it prepares your child for a later transition to a pedal bike by teaching them the right movement patterns at a young age. When they later move up to riding a bike, the process will be much smoother. By riding a balance bike, they also train their balance skills, which are key for cycling. Transitioning from a scooter to a bike, on the other hand, is a bigger task. It will be more challenging than moving from a balance bike to a pedal bike.
