New Scoot XL by Ridgeback Balance Bike Now Available!
Building on the success of the Scoot balance bike with 12″ wheels, Ridgeback UK has now unveiled the new Scoot XL which has 14″ wheels. The new Scoot XL is similar in frame design and components with the exception of 14″ wheels and a slightly larger frame size which works well for bigger kids ages 5-8 years. This enables the bike to achieve a seat adjustment range from 16″-22″ and it also has no weight limit.
For those of you not familiar with the Scoot by Ridgeback, they are simply some of the best balance bikes on the market because they are bikes to the core and not toys like some competing brands. The bike features a 6061 Aluminum frame with steel fork which enables the bike to be passed down to younger siblings and stand up to the abuse young kids inflict on bicycles. The bike also has a rear alloy v-brake which teaches coordination and slows down the bike safely on larger hills. The bike weighs a mere 12 lbs and features aluminum rims, soft grip pvc hand grips, sealed headset, semi slick tires and a padded seat with carry handle.
