Fun bike for bigger kids too!

Bought this balance bike as a last resort for my 8-year-old who was too afraid of a pedal bike. He spent a few day riding this on small hills and went onto the pedal bike without problems. Now when the kids get together and ride, we bring this out as all the neighbor kids like to ride it as well.
4 year old loves it

Really happy so far. Our 4 year old loves it and was able to start balancing on it almost immediately. Interestingly he is not asking to go back to his training wheel bike. He's impressed with the hand brake, kick stand, and foot pegs. I like the easy release seat clamp for easy seat height adjustment. Overall the quality is good. I agree with other posts that suggest the kids will keep riding it even after they learn to balance. Glad we bought it and highly recommend it. I think learning to balance has been a great confidence builder for our 4 yo and he has gotten over the frustration of trying to learn to ride his traditional bike without the training wheels. When he's ready to switch back to his pedal bike I think he will need very little help.

My kids love these bikes! They have a lot of fun on them. The only issue I had was a manufacturing issue, with the pipe on the seat that attatches it to the frame. It sticks down too far and the edges are rough, so that caused some scratching. Other then that they are overall good training bikes and my kids enjoy them very much!

Bought it for my 5 year old grandson who had difficulty with the traditional two-wheeler he had. When I saw this, it looked like a heck of a lot of fun, so I got it for his birthday. Apparently, his parents can't get him to stop wanting to ride it for hours. He had no trouble mastering the glide either.
Great for the 4-7 year old

We own a Strider and a Kazam also. The Go Glider is considerably larger. Would be ideal for a taller 4-5 year old on up. In terms of quality, I think the other two are slightly better. We had an issue with getting the neck of the handlebars inserted all the way, even using a rubber mallet. Other than that, the bike is great.
He loves it!

So far, our son is loving his Glider bike. He was a little confused at first when he realized there were no peddles, but after explaining how it worked he thought it was great. He's only been on it for a week, so he's still walking along - not much gliding yet. My husband found it very easy to put together, which is saying a lot for this not-so-handy guy. The construction quality is excellent. Extremely pleased with our purchase.

My daughter learned to ride it in 1 hour! From a I am scared to ride. to I can do it! What else can I say. I am very pleased.

My VERY INDEPENDENT 7 year old taught himself to ride a two wheeler by riding this bike for 2 days!! Still loves this bike even though he can ride a bike now.
Great Transition Bike

Bought this for our 2 oldest who freak out with training wheels and just decided they didn't want to ride a bike. My oldest got on immediately and you could see her confidence come back and the joy of riding. She even said, "I love my go glider" and then we took the training wheels off her bike and she started gliding down the hill on it...I think pretty soon we will have a bike rider. The glider has helped her practice balance and still have control which training wheels don't do. Her sister needs a little more coaxing but the bike is purposeful and works like it should.
