Beta has announced the addition of a third model to its lineup of electric balance bikes with the Kinder 16 Pro. Designed for youth riders from ages 7 to 10, it’s powered by a 24-volt brushless motor and 5.2 amp-hour battery that’s removable. According to Beta, the battery can last up to 20 miles and takes three hours to fully charge. Unlike the Italian manufacturer’s other electric balance bikes, the Kinder 16 Pro is equipped with front suspension in the form of a conventional fork.

The Kinder 16 Pro is Beta’s highest-spec electric balance bike. It has three power modes with claimed top speeds of 6, 11, and 15 mph.Beta
