Limited edition BMX-a-like is joined by a tot version of the Sherwood womens' bike

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

Originally released in 1982, the Burner was the mainstream face of the 1980s BMX craze, and sold in hundreds of thousands.

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.
