Project year: 2019
Product website: Bixie
Bixie is the most natural bike for children made of locally sourced raw materials in the heart of the Alps. Most of the beechwood used for the balance bike is harvested in Slovenia, the 3rd most forested country in Europe.
The design of the bike was inspired by children’s natural desire to imitate their parents. Bixie is not a cheap substitute for a bike, but a balance bike that looks just like a real bike and it is even better because it is 99% recyclable and made of natural beech wood, with natural leather grips and saddle. . Since the seat height of the saddle is adjustable, the bike is suitable for children of different ages and heights.
Because of Bixie’s light design and natural materials, the bike is environment- and child-friendly. The wood finish is made of natural ingredients like wax and oils that kids can even lick. Bixie helps parents raise children surrounded by natural products and reduce children’s screen time at a young age. It uses 80% less adhesive compared to the plywood balance bikes.
Bixie is not a toy, but it helps children learn how to maintain balance and steer while being free. It also helps in keeping them healthy, happy, and agile. It is proven that balance biked is the easiest way for children to learn to ride a real bicycle.
We care about the environment, and this is why we made a product of CO2-neutral materials. There are many ways to be eco-friendly; from creating products in an environmentally friendly way to making lifestyle changes to benefit the environment, and we hope our product will help parents to “make a difference”.
