There are not a lot of quality options for parents who are looking for balance bikes when their kids are older than 3 and/or a 12″ balance bike is simply too small for them and they are not ready for a pedal bike. Consequently, many parents head to bikes with training wheels/ stabilizers. We totally disagree with training wheels/ stabilizers unless there are physical or development limitations and children are unable to ride a balance bike. We believe that balance is the most important skill to develop for children to become confident and passionate riders. The Woom 1 Plus is a 14″ balance bike intended for the larger toddler that is 3 to 5 years old who is just starting out with balance bikes or has outgrown their first balance bike and not quiet ready for pedals. We all start and develop our riding skills at different rates and the Woom 1 Plus has filled a niche for a quality bigger bike to help kids develop confidence and balance before they learn to pedal. The Woom 1 Plus has all the same features as the Woom 1 and has added some additional confidence inspiring features for larger kids. A high rise BMX style handlebar that provides an upright striding position. Both front and rear v brakes have small reach levers. The rear lever and brake pads are green just like all other Woom pedal bikes. They also ship the Woom 1 plus with a removable foot rest that is a great learning tool for kids as they develop towards riding a pedal bike. The footrest is made of wood and looks like a skateboard. My daughter ended up calling it her “skateboard bike.” Woom 1 Plus Details: Intended Age: 3 years to 5 years Weight: 9.81 lbs Min/Max Seat Height: 14.76 -18.5 inches Colors: Red, Blue, Green and Purple Features: Front and Rear v brakes, Rear is color coded green on lever and rear brake pads, rubber pneumatic tires, steering limiter, catch free smooth stem and rounded hex bolts axles, step through low standover frame, quality headset and hub bearings, small diameter handle bar for small hands, long stable wheel base and BMX style handlebar that helps build confidence in a upright riding position.

A course built out of pallets that's burned after the event, events through swamps and a horde of rowdy BMX fans, Florideah Swampfest is simply rad.
