@bixbibikes we set out to create the absolute ultimate balance bike. We looked at our challenge from an extreme perspective. How to make a truly extraordinary machine with zero exceptions, able to endure the most extreme efforts.
The result was the
bixbi X limited edition titanium
It’s Xtreme, Xceptional, Xtraordinary, Xotic and yes, a tad Xcessive. It’s truly for the Xpert and we think it’s Xciting!
Many brands have invested in carbon-fiber moulds for their top-end balance bike frames. At bixbi, we know that titanium is the only material choice for the ultimate balance bike. The reason is simple: kids drop bikes. As original designers and manufacturers of the best balance bikes in the world, we know that bikes get dropped on curbs. They take sharp hits and carbon fibre is not designed for impact. In fact, there may not be a worse material for impact, as cracks quickly lead to catastrophic failure and injury.
Kids are kids after all, rough and tumble!
That’s why the only place we use carbon-fiber is in the wheel. The bixbi X rims are 100% carbon fibre but the inherently strong hoop shape and protective 1.5” pneumatic tires absorb impact without risk of catastrophic failure. Used in this way, carbon fiber provides weight reduction where it matters most and doesn’t compromise frame strength.
We are only producing 30 of the LIMITED EDITION X TITANIUM bixbi in HOT LAVA. Each comes with a Frame ID showing it’s limited edition # out of the 30.
