Project year: 2019
Product website: Bixie
Bixie is the most natural balance bike for children made of locally sourced raw materials in the heart of the Alps. Most of the beech wood 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 it is made of natural beech wood, with grips and saddle made from natural leather. Since the seat height of the saddle can be adjusted, the bike is suitable for children of different ages and heights.
Because of Bixie’s light design and use of natural materials, the bike is environmentally and kids friendly. The wood finish is made of natural ingredients like wax and oils, that kids can even lick. Bixie helps parents raising children surrounded by natural products and helps reducing 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 to learn how to maintain balance and learn to steer while being free, and it also helps in keeping them healthy, happy and nimble. Balance bikes are proven to be the easiest way for children to learn to ride real bicycle later on.
We care about the environment and that 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”.
