The Strider Sport 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 Strider Sport model features a sealed cartridge bearing wheelset for greater reliability, EVA polymer tire tread for less rolling resistance on all terrains, softer rubber grips, durable powder coat finish, 1 slim plastic seat, 1 slim padded seat with extra long post, and quick-release clamps for easy seat and 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!
