In general, larger wheel sizes means for a more comfortable ride for beginners.
When you buy an electric bicycle for your child, you need to consider your child’s riding skills and the maximum speed they can control to ensure their safety. You have to follow the recommendation supplied by the manufacturer.
Tips to keep kids safe while biking
Wear a helmet every time. Most of the serious and life-threatening injuries we see are head injuries, but that risk can be reduced by wearing a properly fitted helmet. By simply wearing a helmet that fits correctly, children can reduce their risk of serious injury up to 85 percent.
Make sure you have the right helmet and the right fit. Not all helmets are made for biking. For instance, football helmets or hard hats are not acceptable for biking. Bike helmets are made specifically for head-first falls and should be properly fitted on a child. Helmets should meet safety standards and should have a CPSC (U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission) or Snell sticker inside. Proper fitting is also important.
Wear proper clothing. Avoid wearing loose-fitting clothing that could catch in the bike’s chain and mechanics, and wear proper shoes. Wearing closed toed shoes while biking can reduce the risk of losing a toe and long sleeves can help guard against road rash if a child falls off their bike. Flip-flops or shoes with heels are also hazardous.
Ride a bike that is right for your kids. Bikes come in all shapes, colors and styles. Choose a bike that fits your child’s skill level and style, but most importantly, find a bike that is the right size. Don’t purchase a bike that a child will grow into. A properly sized bike is a safer bike. Your child should be able to sit on the seat with their feet flat on the ground and the handlebars should be no higher than their shoulders.
Perform a safety check before every ride. Before every ride check to make sure a bike’s seat, handlebars and wheels are all adjusted correctly and in good shape. Nothing should be loose or falling apart. Check the chain of the bike and the brakes, and make sure the tires have enough air.
Proper supervision is key. Supervision starts by preparing kids for their bike, with proper equipment and modeled behavior.
