Classic Model - 12" Wheels - Skill Building Entry Level Model
If your toddler can walk, a STRIDER™ balance bike will get your toddler cruising over dirt, grass, and pavement with ease. Designed to be steady, stable, and safe, the STRIDER bike is perfect for children from 18 months to 5 years old.
Your child can learn to ride a bike sooner and safer with a Strider™.
The Strider™ teaches balance and coordination
Healthy kids develop essential motor skills early in life. Pediatricians agree that learning balance, coordination with exercise jump-starts a child’s growth and development.
Enter the Strider™ PREbike.
The Strider™ teaches your child balance, coordination and develops glittering confidence. Trikes and bikes with training wheels don’t. Traditional bicycles place too much of the focus on learning to pedal -- skimping on developing your child’s motor skills. And tricycles are heavy, clunky and difficult for kids to control.
Bike riding becomes a breeze when you teach your child balance and coordination before pedaling. The Strider™ takes pedaling out of the mix so that kids can concentrate solely on learning balance, which takes more practice. Pedaling is a secondary skill that kids can easily learn within a few short minutes.
