Airborne Gnome Balance Bike Description: The Airborne Gnome Balance Bike is the perfect first ride to get your little gnome on 2 wheels and on the path to getting air-born! The Airborne Gnome features a light weight aluminum frame making it easy for the little ones to control as well as 3″ wide grippy tires to ensure they have the traction they need once they get rolling. A threadless headset with a short reach alloy stem keeps the bars in place and keeps everything running smoothly. A padded one-piece seat/post combo offers comfy seating, which is important as your kid will want to spend all day on this little two-wheeler. The Gnome has a standover/seat height range of 12.5″ (slammed, all the way down) to 14.25″ (maximum, all the way up). This allows for plenty of growing room, allowing them to learn the basics of balance once they can walk and progress to getting bike control at speed once they’re a bit taller.
