WHY YOU WILL LOVE THE CRUZEE UltraLite Alloy Balance Bike – New Zealand’s favorite balance/runner bike !

Suits children <18mths to 4+ years (approx 60cm – 125cm tall) – if they can walk they can cruze on a Cruzee! 

Your child’s first bike is a joyous milestone – the beginning of mobile independence, new found confidence and skills. To build the world’s best balance bike we have made it ultra light Cruzee so as soon as children are able to walk they can manoeuvre their Cruzee without battling a heavy steel frame. We have made it incredibly durable, your Cruzee will not rust, will not ever have a flat tyre, has no oily bits and the anodonised aluminium finish will ensure any scratches will not make your eyes sore. Cruzee also boasts the widest size adjustability of balance bikes in the world, it will grow with your child from about 18 months to 5 years.


Ultralight Weight – Ultra light weight at 1.9 kg means it’s easier to manoeuvre encouraging the youngest of children to grow in confidence. Easy to carry for you and your child.

Best Fit – Designed to grow with your child, Cruzee has the widest size adjustability available – 9 inches of seat adjustment and 5 inches of handlebar adjustment – both tool free. Suits riders 60cm-125cm tall or 18 months -5 years

Built to Last – Made from high grade aluminium alloy, skillfully welded by artisan TIG welders. Anodized aluminium finish is exceptionally durable – it will never rust, chip or peel. Foam tyres that will never deflate. Maintenance free cartridge sealed bearings.

Safety – The ultra light weight design means a child is less likely to be hurt or stuck should they fall. Low profile axel bolts protect riders from painful ankle strikes. Rock solid construction.

Take Your Cruzee Everywhere – Can ride on any terrain including sand at the beach, gravel, grass, snow and will not damage or mark indoor floor surfaces.

Cherish Every Moment – Opens up a whole new world of adventure, fun and exercise at a very early age. Cherish every moment as you watch your child’s confidence grow. The transition to a pedal bike will be faster and more natural because your child will have mastered balancing leaving him or her free to focus on pedalling and steering.

  •  Adjustment and 5 inches of handlebar adjustment – both tool free. Suits riders 60cm-125cm tall or 18 months -5 years.
  • The Cruzee Balance Bike is anodized in brilliant damage proof colors.  Using aluminum meant we could anodize our bikes.  Anodizing hardens the surface of the bike frame. The color never fades, never corrodes, or peels off. Your Cruzee will look as bright and beautiful in 20 years as it does today.
  • The Cruzee bike has such a low seat, kids as young as 2 can reach the ground safely.  By using the most efficient frame geometry available, Cruzee is accessible safe for even the smallest budding cyclist.
  • The Cruzee balance bike uses only flush-mounted corrosion free hardware. By recessing all the bolts on the Cruzee there there is nothing to bang into and none of the sharp exposed parts kids most frequently get hurt with when using other bikes.
  • The Cruzee is tool free and easy to adjust to exactly fit your child. You can easily fine tune your Cruzee to fit your kids perfectly. Then, you won’t ever have to worry about keeping, finding, buying, or storing some tool to do it with.
