Prep your precious babe for success by starting them early with the world’s lightest balance bike, the Brilrider FLIGHT.

With so many advancements in modern society, you’d think we’d have moved beyond the butane lighter by now. A pressurized, flammable gas, butane fumes can irritate your eyes and skin, can elevate your heart rate, and even lead to cardiac arrest.
