Raleigh is to launch a new limited-edition balance bike version of its classic Burner BMX.

The £120 Raleigh Burner Balance Bike will be available to order via pre-registration before going on sale in autumn.

Raleigh product manager Jane Bakes said: “The Raleigh Burner is truly iconic in the bike world so we’re happy extend this heritage to a new generation of cyclists. This balance bike is a real all-rounder which will please parents just as much as it does for the kids.”

The Nottingham company is also releasing a limited-edition balance bike version of the Sherwood womens' bike, complete with a scaled-down wicker basket. This, too, retails for £120.

News of the products were announced in January, when the designs were in computer form only.
