With this bike, you get what you’re paying for. In this case, you’re setting your child up for success with a bike that is lightweight….but also very stable. For a child on wheels for the first time and trying to get used to that feeling of moving…fast, this goes a long way. The components are top notch which means a smooth ride…and again no child fighting their bike. It’s super durable. After 18 months of (hard) use, our WOOM1 looks just about new. This also means it holds its value, can easily be passed down to other siblings or can be sold.

The Woom 1 doesn’t compromise on anything—simple assembly, solid parts, ideal geometry—so if money is secondary and bike enthusiasm is primary for you, this is the bike for kids wearing between 2T and 4T clothes. The Woom is designed in Europe (motherland of most good bike culture), built in Cambodia, and dialed in with precision at Woom’s assembly facility in Austin, Texas, which gives the brand high quality control. Weighing just under 8 pounds, the Woom 1 features an ideal upright riding position, a very low 7-inch top tube height (great for shorter kids) and 5 inches of seat adjustability, starting on the lower end at 10¾ inches (most start around 12 inches).

The lightweight, aluminum WOOM bike easy for youngsters to handle. Pneumatic tires absorb bumps and shocks. This is more comfortable and less-tiring for the rider. The steering lock limiter prevents the front wheel from turning too far. This helps kids learn to make small course adjustments. It weighs less than eight pounds, and is easy to lift and carry. It has a hand brake and pneumatic tires. The WOOM bike features durable alloy rims and stainless steel spokes.

Easy-reach, responsive hand brake and the low-step-through frame allows kids to easily get on and off the bike.

The Woom 1 has a longer wheelbase than other balance bikes. The stand over height and overall weight which is only 7.9 lbs, makes it easy for a toddler to ride. It also comes with a quick-release adjustable seat. You can use this bike to teach your kids balance and steering until they are truly ready for pedals. This bike comes with an Aluminum frame. Most high-end bikes are made using this frame. Aluminum frames are lightweight and at the same time very durable. They will last for years to come. The WOOM1’s long wheelbase is perfect for a smooth glide. This bike also has an upright body position.

They are very well thought out, lightweight, and superb quality — I have never heard or read a bad thing about them. I especially love the upright position for early riders. This bike includes a hand brake and pneumatic tires.

This is a high-end balance bike and will cost you more than an average balance bike.
