Adjustable Gyrobike Replaces Training Wheels For Kids

A motorized wheel teaches children how to ride a bike- without the fear of falling.

Gyrobike is a promising bicycle training system that makes use of a gyroscopic wheel instead of training wheels for balance and stability. While conventional training bikes for kids have a pair of training wheels to aid young riders in finding balance while learning to pedal a bike, Gryobike is equipped with a Gyrowheel, a battery-powered spinning disk that helps keep both the bike and rider upright through a process called gyroscopic precession.

The Gyrowheel can be adjusted up to three times to reduce its balance influence and help the rider steer the bike independently. In the first step, the Gyrobike has detachable pedals to initially help the young rider learn to balance and become comfortable with the bike. The second step is to replace the front wheel with the Gyrowheel and attach the pedals so the learner can get used to pedaling in an upright position. And the final step in the process is to remove the Gyrowheel and reattach the normal wheel once the rider is confident enough to go solo.

Available in red, pink, green and blue, the Gyrobike is geared toward kids from ages 3 to 6 years old and will be sold in Europe beginning August 30th for roughly $362 USD.
