Banwood, founded by Juan Manuel Torralvo Castro and Frida Jonsby, is a family-owned lifestyle brand that focuses on crafting high-end kid's balance bikes, helmets, and other cycling accessories. Their core values are safety, superb quality and timeless design. Juan and Frida met in Germany, the home of reliability and safety, where they merged Frida’s eye for design and Juan’s family history of manufacturing. The idea for the brand came from a mutual interest in bicycles and an idea of how to implement quality craftsmanship into the world of children's balance bikes. All their products feature contemporary designs with a touch of mid-century charm. Influenced by Scandinavian culture, their key themes throughout the creative process are simplicity, minimalism and functionality.
