Imagine paying more than $800 for a bike without pedals.

That’s the ask for the Bentley Balance Bike, designed to teach young children the art of balance.

Created in a range of colours to match the options available to Bentley customers, the Balance Bike has been conceived with the same meticulous attention to detail and style as Bentley cars.

Diamond-quilted handlebars echo the luxury detailing found in Bentley cars, with the iconic wings emblem prominently positioned below them.

Children and parents can select their favourite colour from a choice of Onyx, Glacier White, Sequin Blue and Dragon Red.

An exclusive feature of the Bentley Balance Bike is the unique safety locking brake system, giving children greater stopping power, so they can ride with confidence – a feature not available on many other balance bikes on the market.

The magnesium alloy frame is inspired by the sleek lines of Bentley cars and can support up to 35kg of weight, despite the frame itself only weighing 650g – made to be portable yet robust.

Aluminium wheel rims can withstand high degrees of kerb weight but do not add bulk to the bike, allowing children to effortlessly push themselves forward, while the air-filled 12-inch rubber tyres ensure absolute comfort.

For further comfort, the ergonomically designed adjustable seat is made from eco-leather and features the Bentley wordmark and a carbon fibre-inspired pattern for added style.

Distinctive knurling beneath the seat gives extra grip for added reassurance.

Bentley Designer Chris Cooke said the Balance Bike was designed with the same meticulous level of detail that goes into every vehicle.

“The frame was inspired by the power line that can be seen on our cars and is reproduced in the key line that flows around the frame of the bike,” he said.

“The seat, an important contact point for both rider and parent, has hidden diamond knurling to improve grip when steadying the rider and the handlebars feature Bentley diamond quilting for comfort.”

The Balance Bike joins a range of exciting Bentley products for children, including the Bentley Trike, teddy bears, blankets, ride-on cars, wooden garages and puzzles.

It’s priced at 450 pounds.

It's all a question of Balance (and money)
