Although there are hundreds of brands out there, only a few seem to have locked down their target market and are now making a killing from it.
The one thing they all have in common is that they lack any fancy features that might make learning to ride confusing. That makes them more accessible to people, especially children, and it’s partially why these brands record such impressive sales.
