Balance Banana Bike - 12 inch wheel

Black and Yellow
Wheel size12 inch


Made for tiny adventures. Inspired by a Raleigh road icon, this adorable mini Banana balance bike is the perfect way to introduce your kids to the world of cycling. By developing their core strength and establishing a centre of gravity, these pedal-free bikes help little’uns master the basics of balancing, making it easier for them to progress to the real thing.

Balance bikes have fast overtaken stabilisers as the go-to way to teach kids how to ride a bike. Unlike traditional children’s bikes, these models don’t have any pedals, brakes or complicated gears to contend with. Instead, the design encourages kids to lift their little legs when they want to move forward – just as they would on a normal bike. By skipping the training wheels, these bikes help toddlers hone their balance, motor skills and coordination. With all these skills ready in their back pockets, balance bikes make the real thing seem much less intimidating.     
Fun, easy to use, compact enough to stash in your boot. By building their confidence and introducing them to the joys of cycling, this mini balance bike will have them riding rings around you in no time.

* The illustration above is an example. We reserve the right, as long as the type, suitability and purpose of the bike are not reduced, to replace individual parts with components of the same or higher quality, so that the bike is delivered differently. The use of other components is currently mainly caused by delivery problems due to the Corona pandemic.

Key Features

  • Iconic styling

    Styled to replicate the iconic Raleigh Team Banana road bike, this balance bike is one for budding cyclists with a future in lycra… or you know, any mini joyrider with great taste.
  • Lightweight Aluminium Frame

    Light enough for mini muscles to manoeuvre, but sturdy enough to practise a proper balance. A ‘proper’ bike from day 1.
  • Protective Lacquer

    When your bike looks this good, you want it to last. That’s why the Banana Balance is finished with a protective lacquer, shielding its gloss finish from the usual bumps and scrapes.
