Strider Balance Bikes are simple, lightweight bikes designed to teach beginning riders as young as 18 months how to steer and balance on two wheels—without the distractions and complications of pedals or training wheels. Balance bikes are designed with only foot propulsion to teach the basics of riding, and are designed specifically to help individuals learn balance and coordination BEFORE pedaling. When the fundamentals of balance and steering are mastered using natural means of propulsion (walking and running), transitioning to a bicycle with pedals or motorcycle is easy, often at a young age. The simple no-pedal design allows children and people of all abilities to learn to ride on two wheels, instilling considerable confidence and bike handling skills while propelling the bike in a natural way.
Strider Sports International, the world’s leading manufacturer and marketer of children’s no-pedal balance bikes, has revolutionized the bicycling industry over the last 10 years. With global sales of over 1.7 million bikes, Strider Bikes are best-in-class among other balance bikes and have a proven track record. The U.S. patented Strider frame design creates the ideal rider position for best bike handling: striking the perfect balance between wheelbase, stand-over height, center-of-gravity, footrest position, handlebar position, seat position, front-to-rear weight bias, and steering geometry. All components, such as seats and grips, are appropriately sized and shaped to fit young riders. The resulting bike is safe and easy to learn on, completely intuitive, and naturally comfortable to ride. Strider Bikes are lightweight, incredibly durable, grow with the child, and offer premium performance at every skill level.Strider Bikes are highly adjustable, offering up to four years of use from one bike. They work on all terrains (including snow), have passed stringent safety tests, and millions of children around the world have learned to ride and race on Strider Bikes. The Strider Education Foundation values products that offer the fit, function, and performance that enables new riders to be successful in learning to ride; we believe Strider Bikes are simply the best balance bike on the market. Because of the overwhelming success rate of teaching the skills needed for everyone to reach their maximum riding potential, the Strider Education Foundation has partnered with the Strider Bikes company to provide Strider Balance Bikes as the best tool for organizations to use to teach riding.
