Details

Encourage your child to ride with a Strider Bike. When learning to ride, a child must be allowed to experience the feel of leaning and how steering affects the balance of the bike. When a child learns to ride without leaning, such as on a tricycle or bike with training wheels, they aren't really learning to ride at all. With the help of a balance bike, the child can learn how to balance and ride a bike in the most simplest way.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So Fun My 2 year old loves her strider bike. It is super easy to adjust the height of the seat to her needs. The blue color is exactly as the picture showed. We love it. It is light-weight and easy to carry if she decides to get off and walk for a minute. Great purchase.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Strider taught my grand sons to ride ! I bought the 12 sport model six years ago for my grand son for his second birthday at age4 he was riding a regular bike with no training wheels and we passed the strider to his brother who was riding a regular bike wth no training wheels at age 4 the key to there early ability is definitely because of the balance learned on the strider. The bike has performed perfect and will be passed on to my 11 month old grand daughter other than cosmetics the strider still works like New I couldn’t be any happier you guys make a great product and it’s a great learning tool Thank you Ryan Redifer Paonia Colorado

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best bikes My oldest started with a strider at about 3 and my middle child at 2. My oldest is now 6 and STILL loves his bike and my now 3 year old zooms on her bike and is very proud of being able to keep up with her big brother. These bikes are solid. We use them almost every day and I recommend them to everyone!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from We LOVE our Strider Bikes!!!! My daughter is 4 and she got her strider at 18 months, my son is 2 and he got his strider for Christmas. Both of our kids have learned incredible balance and maneuvering skills from their Strider. We have to run to keep up with them. The bikes are very well made and ergonomically comfortable for my kids little bodies. We are so happy with our decision to go with Strider and our little ones have benefitted greatly. Thank you for making such an incredible product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Absolutely the best! Bought this for our son on his 2nd birthday. We lived in a rural area with a steep driveway-not a place to teach about pedal biking! He loved using this bike indoors and out, in all the yard and side and back yard hills, he had no issues from day one figuring out what to do! My only regret is that we don't live near any indoor tracks for races!! He uses it constantly, much nicer than a stroller, and I love that he is now 4 and still perfect fine on it, can be easily adjusted for cousins or friends! We saw how many kids struggled with training wheels and he has never and will never need them!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best way to start little ones As a rider myself I understand the concept of forward progression and balance. We started our 18 month old boy on a Strider and within a few tries he grasped the idea. Now on our 2nd child she has reached the same age this time for our little girl we again chose the Strider with its low stand over height, easy adjustments and of course it's pink color we are excited to watch Team Walter stride together!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great first bike! After watching the Strider race in Pittsburgh PA on 6/6/16, we immediately came home and purchased a Sport model. Our 3 year old daughter loves the look of it (it is pink) and she eagerly hopped on. It is very light and she had no problem moving it. Yesterday we took her to a vacant parking lot for her first real attempt, and she quickly learned how to get around on it. We hope to skip the painful training wheels phase using this Strider Balance Bike.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So far, so GOOD! I bought this for my son who just turned 3 and so far, I can't get enough of all of his smiles and antics on the Strider 12 Sport! Up until now, he's been on 3-wheeled scooters and trikes, but now he's really moving! When we presented it to him on his birthday, he wasn't sure what to make of this new surprise, despite the fact that it was his favorite color (love all the color options, by the way). But after he opened up his other gifts, he threw a leg over and started chasing us around the house with it - Just like that! No coaching, no explanation; he got on and immediately got it! Now he and his older sister are in constant competition (weather permitting) outside in the driveway and on neighborhood sidewalks! Design and assembly are very simple and the quality is robust - perfect for little ones who are hard on their gear. Thank you!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Top Notch! My four year old and two year old love their Strider. The seat and handlebar adjust easily as kids grow. The bike is also very light - my four year old can carry and lift it herself. Better than a scooter and helpful with balance as they learn to ride a bike. Super fun!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Strider to 16" no training wheels My 4 year old has been on a Strider since he was 18 months old, racing other Strider riders at the BMX track weekly. The balance and speed still amazes me. We recently upgraded him to a 16 pedal bike, before we left the store we had them remove the training wheels and install a kick stand. We knew he didn't need them, and didn't want them to be an option. Within 10 mins he was riding his bike with out help. If he would lose his balance he would lay the bike down like he would a Strider, no wipe outs. Within 3 days he was starting by himself. This was made all possible by his Strider and riding since he was 18 months old. I also have a 2.5 year old who I put on the Strider at 14 months, she has been riding at the BMX track since she was 16 months old. I believe in the Striders and promote them to everyone. My Mother In Law have a problem, we have 7 Striders between the two of us! So saying we believe in them is an understatement!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from GREAT investment that will last multiple kids I have had this bike for 4 years. My son took to it right away and was balancing at 20 months. The transition to a pedal bike when he was 4 years old was seamless. The bike was HEAVILY used for 2.5 years and is still in amazing shape. It is in such good condition that it is now being passed down to my daughter. I love that you can buy accessories to customize the bike for different children!! I highly recommend this bike for its quality, ease of use (changing seat and handle bars), and customer service. I love that the bike can fit my small toddlers to school aged kids. Don’t waste your money on other balance bikes... Strider is the best and worth the investment!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome! I bought this for my grandsons 2nd birthday last month. He loves it and rides it all the time. He is getting where he coasts more than walks. It’s super light, he can pick it up and carry it himself if he wants. My 5 yo granddaughter has used it too and it’s helped her learn to ride her bike. The seat and bars are easy to adjust to it’s easy for them to trade off. Very happy with it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect intro to a love of bikes Our son started riding his strider around age 2, and after a bit of scooting around slowly, he started to figure out the 'stride'. That's when we were really sold. He is able to cruise on this little thing so fast I need a bike myself to keep up. His balance skills are incredible. Its light weight enough for a toddler to maneuver easily, the tires are solid so we never have to worry about flats. Its one of his favorite activities, especially since we are avid bikers, so he feels like he can join in the family fun. I can also stick it in the basket of my chariot bike trailer for when he gets tired.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best investment gift to date! I bought the Strider sport for my son's 3rd birthday. I had never heard of balance bikes the week before I placed the order and was actually on my way to purchase a 12" bike with training wheels. Someone inadvertantly mentioned balance bikes and I did my research and fell in love with the Strider. I could barely wait to give it too my son! I have taken him riding every day for the last 3 weeks and he loves it! The assembly was done in less than 5 minutes, the no tool adjustments are great, and the light weight is the icing on the cake. His leg will bump against the foot rests if his stance isn't wide enough and recessesld bolts would have been nice...but the flexibility and weight of the Strider make it my recommendation. Now all we need is Strider events in St. Louis!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Parent Approved and Kid Tested First Bike I’ll be honest. This is not his first bike. But it is the first bike he can actually ride. All other bikes that we have either been given or bought have all been too heavy for him to ride. He just wasn’t strong enough. Not so with the Strider bike. We love this Strider Sport Balance Bike – my son jumped on it and is starting to pick up his feet to balance. Soon he’ll be bombing down the street with his feet up. In no time, he’ll graduate to a bike with pedals. That is why the Strider balance bike is so awesome – it will help my Little Man be able to ride a pedal bike before he’s three. Amazing! We actually used this method with my Princess. But she was five! We simply took off the pedals of her existing bike and she learned to ride it by balancing. My son could never be strong enough to do this with his big boy bike in the garage. This is why I am so glad that Strider sent this bike for us to review. The Strider Sport Balance Bike has some amazing features I love: Handlebar – this smaller handlebar is great for my Little Man’s small hands. Wheels – the lightweight wheels make maneuvering this balance bike so easy for my guy. Plus, the tires don’t need air and will never go flat! Seat – our Sport model incuded an XL seat for kids 3+ but my Little Man loves this seat more. I love that the seat is adjustable and will grow with him {plus, you don’t need tools to adjust it!} Footrest – though he has not yet used this feature yet, I am sure when he gets even more comfortable on his balance bike he will be resting his feet and coasting along, Our only problem right now is that he always wants to go outside to ride his bike. Always. So in this Fall rainy weather, when I don’t want to stand in the rain, I am stuck making him happy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing Bike! We are so excited that we got this bike! It provides a great opportunity to learn how to ride and improve coordination and balance with our toddler. It's simple and an easy transition to the next level pedal bike

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best birthday gift We purchased the strider and base along with helmet for our sons first birthday. Not a single day goes by where he doesn't get on it and practice his riding skills!! He is a natural thanks to Strider!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect Gift This Strider was purchased as a 2nd birthday gift for my granddaughter. She immediately hopped on it, and with a little help, navigated the living room and beyond. It won't be long and she'll be keeping up with her big brother! The bike arrived in record time, was packaged properly and assembled with ease. I could not find even a minor defect in fit or finish. The ability to adjust the seat and handle bar height is a great feature. Additionally, the bike is remarkably light. I'm very happy with the purchase and highly recommend Strider bikes to all.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My "MO" as a Popo I bought this in December, for my granddaughter's second birthday. That's my "MO" as a Popo. Grandchild turns 2, they get a Strider of their color choice. 7 of my 9 grandchildren have reached the age of two so far. The bikes are a great tool for teaching them balance, steering and fun on a bike, and when they reach "pedal age", they can really take off. My older G-kids are now getting pedal powered bikes and have no problem riding them, thanks to Strider.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Strider Sport I bought this bike on March 10 for my Grandsons 4th birthday which was March 18th. The bike arrived on March 18th, I really didn't think that it would make it. If I had not called the company to inquire why the shipping information had not changed the bike would not have arrived on time. I used the online chat with a very nice gentleman named Tyler, he did his research and the bike movement started. His professionalism was appreciated. He also went on to ask my Grandsons shirt size so that he could send him a jersey. I would not hesitate to purchase from this company again. My Grandson loves the bike and the jersey, he even called today and asked for another jersey. Thanks Strider people!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best bike. EVER I bought the Strider Sport model for my son when he was 2, my husband was skeptical because he didn’t have pedals. Our son is now almost 3 and has been LOVING his bike. He rides it every single day, he’s gone from walking his bike, to fast paced walk, to a full blown run. He’s been lifting his feet and coasting for quite some time now. I’ve has multiple compliments from older generations who also had doubts about this bike, tell me they LOVE IT and can’t believe how well our son is doing on it. I highly highly recommend this bike. My mother just purchased the Sport model for our daughter who is almost 2 ( she’s has been to short to touch the ground up until recently) I definitely plan to upgrade to the new Strider bike. P.s when we moved from Alaska to Georgia my sons Strider was packed in our luggage! :D it’s extremely lightweight.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from What a great concept! Thank you a million times! What a great practice bike this was for our 5-year old daughter! She is a tall 5 year old so when we bought this bike for her, it seemed too small, but in reality it was exactly what she needed. A bike that wasn't too large and one she could easily maneuver on. She practiced on it for roughly one month, and then one Saturday she wanted to try her other bike without training wheels and off she went. I didn't even have to teach her the concepts. Thanks to the Strider bike, she knew how to balance. It was unreal to see and I couldn't believe my eyes! Thank you Strider bike. We owe you big time!
