D 16E DRIVE

a child-friendly , manageable light weight of 17 lbs ( including battery ).
The Husqvarna 16eDrive extends the concept to kids aged 4 to 8 years old up to 75 lbs , and with an inside leg range of 7-9 in . The 16eDrive has 16 ” composite wheels with pneumatic tyres . Three power modes allow speeds up to 13 mph , so when children feel confident , they can go quicker with an easy turn of the twist-action throttle .
Riding skills increase quickly with confidence , and the 16eDrive is designed to build the trust of young riders . Seat height is a manageable 17 in , and at just 19.8 lbs including the battery , the 16eDrive is easy to push around and pick up , so kids will soon be back in action after a tumble .
Both the 12eDrive and 16eDrive offer battery runtime of up to 60 minutes . The 12eDrive ’ s 2 Ah battery takes 30-60 minutes to recharge and the 16eDrive has a 4 Ah unit with a charge time of 45-60 minutes . Rapid charging means the action doesn ’ t stop for long and can keep on going with an optional second battery . With their low weight , both balance bikes are easily lifted into a car to take on family days out .
