Designed by a father in South Dakota in 2007, the Strider balance bike is now the bestselling balance bike in the United States. The Strider is a simple, no-pedal balance bike that allows children as young as 18 months to learn how to ride a bicycle.

  • Designed for kids ages 1.5 to 3
  • Lightweight, just 6.4 pounds.
  • Adjustable handlebars allows you to raise them as the rider grows taller from 18 to 22 inches tall.
  • Durable mini saddle is narrow to fit smaller hips.
  • Adjustable plastic seat grows from 11 inches to 16 inches tall with a machined aluminum binder clamp. A 5mm wrench is included. 
  • Note: The saddle on the Strider Classic is not padded. You can purchase an optional padded saddle.
  • All-terrain EVA polymer (industrial foam) tires. Never need air and never go flat. Upgrade to custom pneumatic (air) tires.
  • 12" molded wheels with sealed cartridge bearings
  • Durable welded steel frame, fork, and handlebars.
  • Sealed cartridge bearings roll smoothly and are maintenance-free for years.
  • Integrated footrest gives little feet a place to stand while gliding, pumping and jumping the bike.
  • Rear brake mount allows the addition of a foot brake (sold separately) once your little rider becomes proficient.
  • Certified lead-free powder coat finish is long lasting and durable.
  • 2 year warranty against manufacturing defects.
  • Suggested rider weight limit: 60 pounds.

Highly recommended for riders 3.5 years and older (or those with an inseam of 15" or greater), you can purchase the optional Extra-Long Padded Seatpost with Saddle that adjusts from 14 inches to 19 inches tall giving your child more years to ride.
