The TRYBIKE has been designed and developed by Co&Co after many years of experience with balance bikes. The founders, Brothers Pim and Alex are enthusiastic cyclists. They are from the Netherlands, where almost everyone has one or two bikes. Co&Co has applied their experience and selected the best materials, created the most durable construction and added the nicest details as well as a quality finish.
Trybike is the first 2-in-1 balance bike made of steel.
STABILITY FOR LITTLE LEARNERS
Designed as an all-in-one tricycle and balance bike, the Trybike is a versatile bike for children to learn from the young age of 15 months and up to 6 years old. Start your little one in tricycle mode as they build their confidence before moving to the more advanced balance bike mode. As a tricycle, the Trybike delivers superior stability so that your little one can scream up the corridors and out into the great outdoors with confidence. Made from quality stainless steel, the Trybike acts as a stable learning bike for children just getting their balance at 15 months old. With an adjustable seating height that can move from 30cm to 45cm, the Trybike is equipped with a number of settings for all riding abilities. The low-gravity tricycle mode sits closer to the ground for juniors, allowing your little rider to walk or glide as they develop their coordination and balancing skills. Equipped with a unique footrest, your child can put their feet up to truly test their balance and coordination.
EASILY UPGRADE FROM TRIKE TO BALANCE BIKE
Once your little one has outgrown their tricycle, you can upgrade your Trybike to balance bike mode. All it takes is a few simple steps to remove the third wheel and get them trialling their balance on a two. After mastering their coordination of a balance bike, they can move on to two-wheeled pedalling without the need for training wheels. Each Trybike comes with a handy toolkit and instructions to easily convert the Trybike from trike to balance bike as your child develops their skills.
SAFETY AND LONGEVITY
Crafted from a durable stainless steel frame, the Trybike has been rigorously tested to ensure that safety is a key priority in its design. Featuring pneumatic tyres that can absorb uneven terrain, you can let your children experiment on gravel and grass without experiencing too much bumpiness or shaking. The 2-in-1 Trybike is equipped with premium sealed cartridge ball bearings that simplify even the trickiest of turns for superior maneuverability.
Take a trip down memory lane and back to your own childhood with the vintage-inspired design of the Trybike range. Upholstered with traditional brown leather seating and hand grips, and refreshing cream white wheels, the Trybike range will transport you back to simpler times but with all the functional advances of today. Available in a range of vibrant colours, you’ll find gorgeous Trybikes in vintage green, cobalt blue, pale pink and soft red.
The Trybike brand uses quality materials in their manufacturing process, delivering 2-in-1 Trybikes that are built to last and can be passed down from generation to generation. Trybike crafts its products from certified wood, recycled board and durable stainless steel — minimising the use of plastic and other non-sustainable materials where possible.
What is a balance bike?
Balance bikes are bicycles specifically designed for toddlers. Balance bikes have two wheels and no pedals. The goal of the no-pedal approach is to help toddlers learn to steer and balance first. As their balancing becomes more stable and their steering becomes more accurate, they’re more likely to make a smooth transition into a traditional bicycle with pedals.
