Some of you may know that we live on a pretty steep street. We’ve lived in our current house for about 3 years and I have been (more than) a little hesitant to let my boys ride their bikes on our road for fear of them going down too fast and getting hurt.
I recently discovered Guardian Kids Bikes and once I read the “why” behind their business, I knew these were the bikes for us! My boys were long over due and maybe a tad anxious to have some new bikes, so it was a win win all around. ♡
Guardian Bikes has been given the title of “The Safest Bike on the Block” and for good reason. In 2013 the team at Guardian Bikes introduced their SureStop Braking Technology to those in the bike industry and immediately recognized the need for safer bikes for children. Their SureStop Braking Technology allows kids to stop faster BUT prevents them from braking too hard and going head over handlebars, which I am certain we all have done or nearly done a time or two in our lives.
After the bikes arrived we assembled them. Do the words “assembly required” make you cringe like they do me?!
Trust me when I say these were some of the easiest bikes to put together and it maybe took us less than 10 minutes each bike. We ordered the 24″ Guardian Lightweight Bike for Corgan and Grey and the 20″ Guardian Lightweight Bike for Parker.
While we were putting the bikes together Mabel kept trying to ride Parker’s bike, it was honestly so cute! She’s obviously eager to have a bike of her own to get out there and ride with her brothers!
For Parkers 20″ bike all we had to assemble were the pedals and the handlebars. Even though Parker can balance properly and ride his bike without training wheels, I love that they give the option to take the pedals off, allowing it to be used as a balance bike rather than using training wheels.
For the older boys 24″ bikes the assembly included the pedals, handlebars, and front wheel.
The team at Guardian Kids Bikes has made finding the right size bike effortless! Their RideSizer online guide helped me easily find the right size bike for each boy and we know how long they will be able to comfortable ride their bikes. Pretty freaking cool if you ask me! Not to mention the FAQ’s and instructional videos they provide are short and sweet and get the point across without any confusion or any out of the ordinary “bike” jargon.
If you are in the market for new bikes now or maybe you will be in the future, I would definitely recommend looking into Guardian Kids Bikes. They have incredible reviews and ultimately provide a safer way for our kids to ride ♡♡♡
