A fun way to learn two-wheel balance

Strider balance bikes are the industry-leader when it comes to helping children as young as 18 months learn to ride on two wheels. The lightweight, pedal-less design allows children to straddle the bike with both feet on the ground and easily propel the bike by walking or running. This natural method puts the focus on the fundamentals of balancing, leaning, and steering without the distractions and complications of pedals or training wheels. Strider Bikes are scientifically proven to increase balance in children of all abilities in a fun and engaging way.

A safe way to learn

The Strider allows children to experience two wheeled biking independently and at their own pace. Tricycles tip over, scrape ankles, and are difficult to pedal. Bicycles with training wheels are tall, heavy, and can be unstable for young riders. The Strider is about 1/3 the weight of a typical 12-inch bike with training wheels, and is free from any cables, chains, sprockets, pedals or protrusions that can harm your child.

An intuitive learning process

Kids begin by straddling the bike, leaning on the handle bars and walking it forward. When ready, they can run the bike forward, gaining the speed and momentum required for balance. Finally, kids lift their feet and glide freely. At the first feeling of instability, your child will instinctively place both feet securely on the ground–so there are no “tricycle tip-overs” or “training-wheel wobbles” that stir-up a fear, hesitancy, or dislike of bike riding.

Built just right for growing toddlers

When it comes to toddlers, weight and fit are critical. Quick releases on the handlebars and seat make it a snap to adjust for a growing child. The bike’s adjustable seat height starts at 11 inches from the ground providing a low center of gravity so that children as young as one year old can maneuver the bike and have fun learning balance. Control is further enhanced with a low and flat handlebar design so that kids can reach forward rather than up, for better leverage and maneuverability. And, as your child becomes more confident, the Strider’s integrated foot rests provide a place for both feet to sit while they coast along. Please note: If your child is 3 1/2 years old or older, Strider recommends purchasing the Extra Long Seat post in addition to the standard seat post included with the Strider.
