Novara Zipper Balance Bike - Girls' - 2015


This product is no longer available, but don't go just yet.


  • Without pedals or training wheels, a child starts by walking the Zipper along slowly, then rolling along and learning how to balance
  • As kids develop their handling skills and balance, they can coast farther with their feet off the ground
  • Braking is simple: kids just put their feet down on the ground and slow themselves with their feet
  • Frame is constructed out of sturdy steel to ensure frequent and enduring use (and fun times)
  • Ships completely assembled—all you have to do when you receive it is straighten the bars and set the saddle height; hex wrench and instructions are included
  • Our Novara Zipper balance bike has a recommended maximum rider weight of 60 lbs.
  • Please note: the Zipper has a minimum standover height of 17.25 in., which means that the child's inseam must be a minimum of 17.25 in. long


An oversize shipping charge of $35 applies to this item (plus regular shipping fees). Or ship it FREE to any REI store for pickup.
