Awesome Lefty Balance Bike!
There's a heap of design work that goes into Cannondale bikes for children, resulting in a comfortable and well-sized ride for each bike from the 12" lefty balance bike to the 20" and 24" bikes.
The features you will find on Cannondale bikes, that you won't necessarily find on a cheaper brand, include the better overall fit and thoughtful component specs - matched perfectly to the rider. The bikes are a pleasure to ride and ensure the kids get off to a great start.
Super Light Frames and Components
Cannondale is known throughout the riding world for their ultra-light aluminium frames. They offer great durability while looking great and giving an awesome ride experience (no matter what size wheels you're riding!)
The light frames and forks are fitted with lightweight alloy bars, stems and rims because when it comes to kids’ bikes, lighter = easier to ride.
Proper Cycling Position
Each model in the kids’ line has been designed to put the rider in the optimal position for control and comfort, making learning easier and riding more fun.

If you like this Trail 12" Balance Bike but you're thinking towards the next size up, check out the other models from Cannondale.
Cannondale Trail Bikes in 20" wheels
Cannondale Trail Bikes in 24" wheels
For the bigger off-road riders (aged 8 - 11 years) Cannondale has these options:
Cannondale Quick - 20" and 24" wheels
Looking for more speed on the pathways - Go to a Cannondale Quick. These kids bikes are just as awesome as the Trail but they have done away with the front suspension to make the bike even lighter, and have replaced the wider trail tires with a faster rolling tire (still chunky enough to absorb the bumps but without weighing you down).
