Outline

The FlipBike is a cool, new, folding balance bike for kids. It is an innovative product that is safe, strong and compact.It is easy to ride, and comes in fun, bright colours. The FlipBike weights only three kilograms so it can be easily carried anywhere. The FlipBike has three adjustable seat heights for growing kids, and a durable, lightweight steel frame for active kids. The FlipBike means no more old-fahioned training wheels. Balance bikes are the best way for children aged 2-5 years to learn balance, strength, co-ordination and speed control, until they are ready to ride a pedal bike.

Evaluation

We gave high marks to the way this design fits in so well with young kids' fun biking scene. We were impressed by the care the designers took to keep the wheels small and make the bike foldable into a compact shape that can be easily transported by car. We also liked the bright range of colors and the simple construction.
