Ybikes Glider and Ybike Original Review and giveaway

Ybike Glider and Ybike Original
Every wanted to ride like the wind?
The Wacky Duo had the opportunities to do just that.
From the good people of Global Outsource Solutions , a pair of Ybike Glider (for me) and a Ybike original (for Didi) were provided for a trial

Ybike Glider
Ybike Glider
The Ybike glider is an ideal scooter for ages 2 to 5. The key features are it being lightweight, practical and functional. With 2 large 125x 24 mm front wheels and a super wide 100x 50 mm rear wheels, balancing on the glider is a breeze.

Within 5 mins on the glider, I am good to go.

Let's glide on the Ybike Glider
Surfing Gliding down the linear connector at Marina Bay East is a breeze. On my first outing with the glider, I took the ride from the car park to Marina Barrage and back! That is a good 2 km workout for the first trial run.

Daddy likes the fact that I could master the glider within one session. It helps too that the glider is 'balanced' with 3 wheels instead of 2. Steering is relatively easy as I could simply go to the direction I want by leaning. As for braking, I discovered I could do so with a step on the back wheel cover.

I reckon with enough practice, I can bet I can beat Daddy on his Rollerblades.

The glider is great for kids to build confidence as well as having a sense of balance and freedom in mobility. It is not exactly a see way but it comes close to being one for kids. For faster kids, it is highly recommended to wear protective gear during the ride.

The handle can also be remove for easy storage. Unfortunately the handle cannot be adjusted and this means I may have to give this up once I grow taller. The recommended height for this is at 110cm and the weight at a max of 20kg. It comes with various colours for boys and girls!
Do wear a helmet for safety!
Ybike Original
The original award winning Ybike is made for kids from as young as 2. It won an award from SABS design that is awarded for outstanding design. It also won the Gold Seal award given for outstanding new products that enhance the lives of children. With so many awards and accolades, Didi could not wait to put his foot to the pedal.

Oh wait, it does not come with a pedal!
Speed-demon on the Ybike
The little daredevil would have to figure how to maneuver the Ybike. The Ybike is build specifically to help the child develop an early sense of balance and control. Recommended for age 2 to 4, it may not be a speed demon, but it will allow the little ones to discover confidence and mobility. The maximum weight for the Ybike is 45 kg, which means King Kong daddy cannot be on it. Nevertheless at this weight, even kids age up to 10 would still be able to be on it!
Steady, get set, go!
It is recommended that the Ybike original to be use for only 20 to 30 mins per session ( thus this is not a long distance bike) . From studies, it had shown children who use Ybike over a period of 2 weeks shown a 700% improvement in balance and co-ordination. We are not sure if this resulted in Didi mastering the Gangnam style, but it must be of some help base on the above studies! There are a wide range of colours for the Ybike original suitable for both genders.
Many Colours avaliable
For the first session, Didi sat on the ride for a full 10 mins, or 200 meters. He needs more practices on this in order to catch up with me on the Ybike Glider!
