Supplied with two seatposts for a seat range of 14" to 20", Scoot accommodates children age 3 to 6. Specifications include a inflated rubber tires and fully serviceable bearings throughout. The handsomely stitched saddle incorporates a handy carrying handle for convenience and Scoot's domed wheel nuts and alloy V-brake complete the safety package.
How Scoot works:
Without the complication of pedals, children are able to narrow their focus on stabilizing themselves and walking the bike. With a little practice, children gradually propel themselves with more confidence and speed. Eventually, forward momentum becomes sufficient to overcome gravity and balance is achieved! Ridgeback Scoot is well equipped for kids to safely practice shifting their body weight and correctly leaning into corners at speed. Once momentum, balance and cornering are mastered, proceeding to a conventional bike with pedals (without training wheels) is a simple formality. Congratulations! Scoot is going to build your child's confidence, place them years ahead of their peers, and put them on the fast track to successful bike riding.
