Why Choose Balance Bikes

Here at Mocka we believe that balance bikes are the best way for kids to develop biking confidence before moving on to a push bike so we are pleased to offer New Zealand's largest range of wooden balance bikes for boys and girls ages 18 months to 6 years.

Read our full Guide to Balance Bikes here! 

Quality and safety is important when choosing a first bike for your little one, as is the peace of mind that your child will feel independent while also having loads of fun! Mocka wooden Balance Bikes offer the perfect transition before they learn to ride a big bike - the no pedal design lets them quickly and easily learn balance and speed control. We also offer a range of accessories, from bike stands and bike bells, to new tyres and bike bags.

Getting the right balance bike

Mocka’s quality range of wooden balance bikes (also known as running bikes) are designed to develop your child’s balance and co-ordination in preparation for riding their first push-bike. The Mocka Balance Bike has no pedals and provides an easy, safe, and fun way for children to build their confidence. Mocka has New Zealand’s largest range of balance bikes for boys and girls aged 18 months – 6 years. Each bike has 3 seat settings, which can be easily adjusted as your child grows. To check sizing, simply measure your child’s inner leg and compare with our size guide:

Sizing

Your child should be able to place their feet firmly on the ground when seated. To check sizing, simply measure your child’s inner leg and compare with our size guide below:

Bike Suitable from Seat height range
Mini Urban Bike 18 months 29 - 33cm
Rocket Bike 18 months 32 - 39cm
Urban, Adventure, Daisy, Race Track Bikes 2 yrs of age 34 - 39cm
Missy Bike 2 yrs of age 35 - 39cm
Police Bike 2 ½ yrs of age 35 - 39cm
Rookie Bike 2 ½ yrs of age 37 - 40cm
Ninja Bike 2 ½- 3 yrs of age 37 - 44cm
All Terrain Bike 3 yrs of age 38 - 42cm
Moto X, Rodsta, Flamette Bikes 3 yrs of age 38 - 42cm
  • Balance bikes for confidence
    Children as young as two can enjoy the fun and freedom of a Mocka Balance Bike. Whilst learning to ride a push-bike can be scary for young children, balance bikes allow children to master their balance quickly and confidently. Once children have outgrown their Mocka Balance Bike, they can seamlessly transition to a 12” bike without the need for training wheels.

  • Balance bikes for durability and comfort
    Mocka Wooden Balance Bikes are built to last and grow with your child as most have height adjustable seats. We have carefully selected only the best materials and parts to ensure our bikes provide unsurpassed quality. The bike’s frame, forks and saddle are constructed from sustainable birch wood. A padded, contoured seat provides lasting comfort and pneumatic rubber tyres ensure a smooth ride. Take extra care of your Mocka Urban Bike, Mini Urban Bike and Ninja Bike’s wheels – Mocka bikes should not be left outside.

    Our entry level Rookie Bike features long lasting EVA tyres which are lightweight and puncture resistant.

  • Balance bikes for convenience
    Mocka’s Balance Bikes are incredibly lightweight at just 4.5kg, making it easy for parents to pick-up and carry as needed and their compact size makes them ideal for stowage within the boot space of most family cars.

  • Balance bikes for safety
    Mocka’s Balance Bikes and running bikes allow children good control over their speed and manoeuvrability. The bike is naturally propelled forward by the child’s running motion and can be quickly and easily stopped by simply dropping their feet to the ground. Complies with Toy Safety Standards EN71 and AS/NZS ISO 8124.2011.

Bike Comparison

With so many options we know that choosing the right bike for your little one may be difficult. To make it a little easier we have created a comparison. To check sizing, simply measure your child's inner leg and compare with our seat heights (your child should be able to place their feet firmly on the ground when seated).
