Little riders often get carried away when learning how to master their first two-wheeler.

When you are learning to ride a bicycle, some assistance is more than welcomed. And while balance bikes are designed with the safety of the child in mind, it never hurts to be able to take control of the wheeler, just in case. And if you can do it from 300 ft away, even better. This is exactly what the myStopy wireless brake assistant is here to offer.

The gizmo consists of the braking device itself, which has an integrated light and is splashproof. A 1500mAh, 3.7V battery is also integrated, promising 105 hours of run time. myStopy also comes with a USB-rechargeable remote control and a bracelet to place it in. An Allen key is also included, for when you need to install the device on the bike.

According to the German manufacturer, the remote brake device comes with a working range of up to 100 m (328 ft), allowing you to immediately stop the bike at a push of a button. This way, parents get to have control over the balance bike, keeping children safe on the wheeler and helping them learn how to better assess dangerous situations.

Installing myStopy is a quick and easy process, with the device being mounted on the bike’s seat post. Right now, the wireless brake assistant is only compatible with German-made Puky balance bikes, but the manufacturer plans to make the device work with a wider range of wheelers.

You can order myStopy on the company’s website for a price of €60 ($68).
