Van Nicholas (Netherlands) - Press Release: Van Nicholas Ventus Jr titanium balance bike: For the next generations of titanium riders.
How do you give your children the ultimate head start towards achieving cycling expertise? Start them on a Van Nicholas Ventus Jr. Titanium balance bike, of course!
Studies have shown that children who rode balance bikes started independent cycling at younger ages than children who only used training wheels. At Van Nicholas, we hypothesize that the use of a Titanium balance bike with full carbon fork and wheels might even help children to ride better, and faster, much quicker, and for longer than other balance bikes (but this isn’t backed up by any scientific research... yet...).
“Titanium’s lightweight but robust nature makes it the perfect material for very young riders,” says Ralph Moorman, General Manager of Van Nicholas, “because it is light enough for them to control easily, but tough enough to handle the rough treatment it will inevitably receive!”
The frame, handlebar and stem are constructed from the same Aerospace Grade 3AL/2.5V Titanium used for our adult bikes, with a full carbon fork and wheels continuing the lightweight but tough theme. Small diameter rubber grips with large bar ends ensure small hands can get to grips with riding without you worrying about them slipping off the handlebars. A padded seat provides comfort and is height adjustable to keep up with their growth spurts!
We’ve also included an integrated foot platform for when their confidence grows and they need somewhere to put their feet up while freewheeling (and making you nervous).
“The other beauty of Titanium is its longevity,” says Ralph. “A Ventus Jr. could be around for a very long time and teach many generations of children how to balance on a bike, and hopefully fall in love with cycling.”
The Ventus Jr. is the perfect tool for your children’s first forays into cycling. And their children’s... And their children’s children...
The Ventus Jr. is suitable for children from 3-5 years, weighs 2.322 gram and is immediately available.
