Atlas Brace Technology says the new Atlas Tyke is not an adjusted adult brace but a custom built product that is specifically engineered to conform to the proportions of small children who are just starting out. The Atlas Tyke is claimed to fit a small child just like the adult brace fits a full size adult, and even though the product is a miniature version of the adult brace, it still preserves the innovative features of its bigger counterparts. Suggested retail is $199.99. The Tyke is sold direct and through bike shops. Click here for more info.
