How the STACYC E-bike is the Perfect Introduction to Motocross,
When you’re learning any sport, you have to start with the basics, whether you’re learning how to dribble the ball as you start your basketball journey or learning how to hold a stick as you start playing hockey. Riding a bike and learning to ride motocross are the same idea. Before you can start learning to ride motocross, you have to understand the basics.
With the STACYC E-bike available here at MXPN, you don’t need to worry about choosing the right equipment to learn the basics. Convertible from a typical balance bike to one powered by an electric motor, the STACYC electric bike is the perfect choice for beginners learning how to get road ready.
What is a Balance Bike?
Balance bikes are perfect for children who are just starting to figure out how to ride a bike. They’re lightweight, easy to maneuver, and don’t have all of the extra parts that make learning how to bike ride more difficult.
When children are learning how to ride a bike, the most difficult part of the whole process is learning how to balance on two wheels. It’s easy to lean too far to one side and overbalance, grab your handlebars in the wrong place and lose your grip as you steer, try to break in the wrong manner, and more.
By using a balance bike, children and new bike riders can get a feel for what goes into operating a bike without having to worry about all of the extra frills and fuss. A balance bike is typically more lightweight than a standard bike, made with a heavy-duty frame and tires for easy learning. Plus, because the average balance bike doesn’t have any pedals, the focus truly falls on learning how to balance instead of how to go fast.
With the STACYC electric bike, those of us here at MXPN offer the same kind of idea as a traditional balance bike. However, the difference with the STACYC electric bike is that this bike is for children and beginners who are learning to ride motocross. It adds an extra element to the bike riding experience, preparing those beginning riders for what it might be like on a proper electric bike.
Why Should You Choose an Electric Balance Bike?
If your beginner rider is planning to ride motocross, then a STACYC electric bike is the perfect tool. Like a traditional balance bike, electric balance bikes don’t have pedals and are low to the ground, making it easy for kids to start and stop with their feet and learn to maintain balance. However, unlike the typical balance bike, the STACYC electric bike comes ready with all of the components needed to make the bike run like a motocross bike.
What’s important to note, though, is that the electric bike can be used without having the electric portion turned on. There is no need to have the electrical connection hooked up or working when your child begins learning how to ride. Until you—and they—are ready to start learning how to operate the electric portion of the electric bike, it can remain offline without the functionality of the bike being reduced.
When you feel like your beginning rider is ready to take that next step, it’s as simple as turning the electric portion on and letting them practice. Because your beginning rider is already familiar with the bike, they’ll have an easier time adjusting to the speed that the electric bike can bring.
STACYC E-bikes Are Perfect For Kids
When your beginning rider is ready to use the electric motor on their bike, STACYC electric bikes allow you to work them up to a higher speed. Going from manpower alone to having an electric motor is a big adjustment for anyone, but it’s especially monumental for kids. However, with the three adjustable speeds of 2 km/h (training speed), 8 km/h (normal speed), and 12 km/h (advanced speed), your child will be able to progress to the level where they feel comfortable and take their time doing it.
If they never reach that point, though, that doesn’t mean that they won’t be able to use their bike. As previously mentioned, the STACYC electric bike also functions as a traditional balance bike, so if your child never quite feels comfortable riding with the electric motor running, then they’ll still be able to use their bike under their power.
The STACYC electric bike is specifically designed with kids in mind. It has a lightweight but durable frame, making it easy for kids to move around easily on their power and making it easier to balance. The tires are tough and durable, ready for any terrain that your child may inadvertently (or purposefully, who’s to say) drive over.
The battery life and charging time are also perfect for kids. When the battery dies, the recharge time is only about an hour, which is the perfect amount of time to go inside, have some lunch, take a break, or maybe even squeeze in a nap for the littles. After an hour when the bike is fully charged, the STACYC electric bike has a battery life of about 30 to 45 minutes, depending on the terrain.
While that may not seem like a long time, that is the perfect amount of time for the short attention span of younger kids. After about half an hour of doing the same activity (even if that activity is motocross), most kids start to get bored of doing the same thing over and over and are ready to try something new. Having the battery die and needing a recharge is the perfect opportunity to step back and take a break, allowing your child to refocus their attention.
