Electric Balance Bikes: Stacyc vs. Mondraker Grommy

Stacyc and Mondraker make kids electric balance bikes (think electric dirt bikes) in 12" and 16" variations. Electric balance bikes are great choices for parents who want to get their kids into motocross or mountain biking in the future. Balance bikes are used to help kids develop their essential riding skills and confidence from an early age, mastering the basics of handling and getting involved in the fun without the complicated distraction of pedaling. 

eBalance bikes take balance bikes to the next level with an electric motor and foot rests. The electric motor gives kids enough power to get up and over hilly terrain whether it be out on the trail or at the pump track. Electric balance bikes allow for an exceptional amount of fun outdoors, getting thousands of hours of hand-eye coordination, balance, and outdoor exercise.

Similarities: Both Stacyc and Mondraker allow you to control the power mode, and as your child show proficient use and understanding of the brake and the ability to coast and brake while standing. Start them with a speed similar to what they can push the non-powered version at, and they learn the use of the  throttle, and a long coast turn into a constant use of throttle and giggles. Both brands are fairly lightweight for easy maneuverability, come with interchangeable batteries and the motors are brushless.

Differences: The Mondraker comes with disk brakes while the Stacyc does not. The Stacyc has mag wheels and pneumatic tires while the Mondraker models come with real rubber tires for a more mountain bike feel and response. The Stacyc has more of a dirt bike feel with smaller footrest than the Mondraker. The Stacycs are priced less than the Mondraker models, but pricing and sales tax may differ between dealers.
