GROW is a bike designed along with the idea of making a simple, light and quality vehicle to make it easier to ride and learn to ride a bike; but GROW is also designed with a consciousness of the need for durable, quality items, industrially and socially sensitive to what we need to change to better our environment; in this case, using ideas, designs, solutions and facts.
This light and high quality aluminum bicycle has an adjustable seat, handle and also adjusts the length of the frame.
Because the bicycle grows in size, it can be used by the same child for twice the time; using 1 bike instead of 2.5.

Kids often ride a too small or too big bike for quite a long time which is not healthy.
