Differences between the Y Velos

We at Yvolution offer a wide range of balance bikes for kids within our Y Velo range. We have five varieties of the product, the Y Velo, the Y Velo Junior, the Y Velo Twista, the Y Velo Flippa, and the Y Velo Loopa.

Between these five variations of our revolutionary balance bike, we can meet both parental and child needs, between improving balance and loco motor skills, providing a safe and secure product to provide peace of mind to parents, and also providing kids with a chance to have fun. This really brings to life our ethos, Life through Motion.

 

But you may ask, which Y Velo is for me and my child? What differences exist across the five products? Well this post aims to clarify these differences so that maximum satisfaction can be gained by both you and your child.

These balance bikes offer a great opportunity for children to develop and enhance their balance skills. Balance is a peculiar concept, as numerous body systems are involved in the process including the inner ear, skin, vision, and the body. The brain processes signals from each of these systems in order to identify what exactly our body is doing and amalgamates them so that we get a sense of where we are and what exactly our body is doing.  While adults can generally balance themselves instantaneously, children can need to further develop their reactions as it is not a skill that has not enough time to mature and gain experience. This is where our vision of the balance bike and our five variations come in.

The Y Velos allows your toddler to use all of the senses to their optimum ability, by taking away the need to pedal while also focusing on the intricate process of balancing in order to promote learning and development in our young. We believe that balance should come before pedaling, to reduce the risk of injury from falls, and increase the enjoyment of learning to balance.

We hope this helps you in choosing the product that best suits both your child and your needs.
