KAWASAKI Running Bike KTR 12 - Product parameters
Brake - yes or no?
The first thing to consider is the age of the child you are buying the training bike for. For small children (1,5 – 3 years) the brake is not as necessary because children of this age automatically use their feet for braking. Using a brake might also be a bit difficult for them, because they don't yet have the necessary strength.
On the other hand, children over 3 years should learn how to use a brake because they have more strength and can develop a higher speed.
Minimum recommended age.
By observing the weight limit of the product, you significantly increase its service life and prevent it from wearing down prematurely. It is not recommended to exceed this limit.
There are several frame types on the market, mainly metal, plastic or wooden. The different types of material have different qualities and advantages.

You can choose from inflatable (an inner tube and a tire), plastic or bantam wheels.
The advantage of bantam or plastic wheels lies mainly in their durability. There is no need to inflate the wheel, therefore there is no risk of puncturing the tire. However, the riding qualities of these wheels slightly differ - these types of wheels don't cushion impacts as much.
Inflatable wheels better absorb impacts, making the ride more comfortable, even for the smallest children. Hard bantam wheels are suitable for riding on uneven and hard terrain, while inflatable wheels are better for parks, urban areas and more even surfaces.
Training bikes with plastic wheels are suitable mainly for interior.
Training bike's seat height is one of its most important parameters, so be sure to take it into account. The seat has to be sufficiently low for the child to be able to safely maoeuvre the bike and reach the ground with their feet.
