The Strider ST-4 Balance Bike is the culmination of many years of design improvements to give your child the best performing and safest riding experience possible, on the highest quality of balance bike available. The ST-4 model features an all new sealed cartridge bearing wheelset for greater reliability, a new tire tread design for less rolling resistance on all terrains, softer rubber grips, a durable powder coat finish, and quick-release clamps for easy seat or handlebar height adjustment without the use of tools. Designed for children 18 months to 5 years of age.
Strider Balance Bikes are a great way for young children to learn the fundamentals of bike riding and have fun doing so. With traditional training wheels, the ride is awkward and proper turning is not learned. With a Strider bike, the rider learns not only to balance the bike, but also how to lean into turns. The transition onto a regular pedal-powered bicycle is much easier than with a tricycle or training wheels. The seat is low enough for little riders to get on the Strider by themselves, then, after a push or two (or on a hill), the rider simply pulls their feet onto the integrated footrests and coasts, just like a real bike!

Frame Design: Unique frame design has integrated Launch Pad footrests for gliding and learning advanced riding skills.
Handlebars & Grips: Now 43% smaller than traditional 7/8" bars. At only 1/2" in diameter, the ST-4 bars and grips better fit your child's hands. Includes a new crossbar pad for added protection.

Wheels: Puncture-proof all-terrain tires with sealed cartridge bearings and steel axles.
Construction: Durable welded steel frame and handlebars. New durable powder coat finish.
Sizing: Adjustable handlebar and seat height to fit riders from 30 to 44 inches tall (saddle height adjusts from 11 to 16 inches from ground). Includes new quick-release clamps for fast, on the fly, adjustment with no tools needed.
