KaZAM

Joy Ride

If there's one thing every little kid wants, it's to be just like the big kids. That's why conventional two-wheel bikes have been getting smaller and smaller – because even the littlest kids want to emulate the bigger ones. The problem with training wheels, though, is that they don't teach a child to balance, they merely make balancing unnecessary by effectively turning a bike into a trike. And the crux of the ability to ride a bike is balance.

If there's one thing every little kid wants, it's to be just like the big kids. That's why conventional two-wheel bikes have been getting smaller and smaller – because even the littlest kids want to emulate the bigger ones. The problem with training wheels, though, is that they don't teach a child to balance, they merely make balancing unnecessary by effectively turning a bike into a trike. And the crux of the ability to ride a bike is balance.

Pedal-free balance bikes aren't new, but KaZAM bikes boast several features that beat the competition, hands (or should we say feet?) down. For starters, KaZAM founders Michael and Elizabeth Wagner and John and Mary Beth Lugo sought input from the cycling community to ensure their balance bike is engineered like a real bike, not a toy.

Second, KaZAM is the only balance bike on the market with a foot rest, making the experience closer to that of a pedal bike. Without the dangling what-do-I-do-with-my-feet-now issue, kids learn to balance faster, and are ready for a real bike even sooner. Third, the KaZAM has substance and style. It’s the perfect little sibling of any conventional bike, with its powder-coated frame, air tires, chrome handlebars, and comfortable seat and hand grips.

It’s incredible how quickly little kids take to the KaZAM. Of course, it’s so much fun and such a sweet ride, the kids may not want to give it up.
