Balancing History

Wooden bikes

Did You know the first balance bike was invented by German inventor Karl Drais in 1817 and was known as the velocipede which is the earliest known form of a two-wheeler without pedals.
More recently, wooden balance bikes have undergone somewhat of a renaissance which many attribute to the success of the Dygio Moto`s (Europe).
Fundamental to explosion in popularity of balance bikes is, apart from their design beauty,
the innovation of Dygio Moto  in restricting the steering movement of the bike which results in a significant increase in their stability.
Of course this success has led to an explosion in new balance bike designs appearing almost daily which has led to a significant amount of confusions for parents in reconciling the differences between different makes and models.
The good news is that once you know what to look for, the differences are easy to spot and make it easy to compare balance bikes and choose the best balance bike for your child.
