Not all balance bikes are created equal
Weighing just 2.95kg starting your little one out on their cycling journey is easier for them than ever before! Thanks to the AIRO’s incredibly lightweight, ultra-hard-wearing magnesium alloy frame they can effortlessly propel themselves along.
Lighter on the wallet than any comparable balance bike, the AIRO is superior on every meaningful measure. The AIRO features footrests which have been stylishly contoured into the frame and the air-filled rubber tyres on aluminium rims make for a smooth free-wheeling experience. The neoprene padded stem provides additional safety, while the fully adjustable seat makes it perfect for ages 18 months to 5 years (with a recommended inside leg of 30-46cm /11.8" to 18.1").
In addition, sealed bearings mean that the wheels are better protected against road debris and the elements. Zero-maintenance and available with a lifetime warranty, the AIRO will be the first step into the world of cycling for your budding mini champ! Lighter than all 23 comparable competitors. We searched long and hard for a lighter balance bike and the only ones we found one were made with plastic wheels and uncomfortable foam tyres. Not all balance bikes are created equal.

Frequently Asked Questions
The correct seat height should have the child sitting on the Airo's seat, with feet flat on the ground, with a slight bend in the knees. For long-distance striding on smooth surfaces, you can raise this slightly. For obstacles, tricks, and off-road riding, the saddle should be adjusted for slightly more bend in the knees.
Quality is important to us, that's why we use proper rubber tyres for a super smooth riding experience (rather than cheap solid foam tyres which make for an uncomfortable ride).
Maintaining the correct tyre pressure will help to extend the life of your tyres, improve safety and ensure a smooth ride. Both the front and back tyres on the Hornit Airo should be inflated to 20-30 PSI (1.5-2.0 BAR).
The Hornit AIRO has been toy safety tested for a child of 18 months+ and so the valve caps had to be removed in accordance with the EN71 toy regulations as they present a choking hazard.
