It all begins with balance.
Balance bikes are the fast track to bike riding success. This little fun machine will teach kids to balance and steer, so that it’s second nature when they move up to a pedal bike.
Yup. It’s a Cannondale
From its beautiful, lightweight aluminum frame, to its one-of-a-kind Lil’ Lefty single-sided fork, this little ripper makes a statement like only a Cannondale can.
