Strider - 12 Sport Balance Bike, Ages 18 Months to 5 Years, Blue
Sold and shipped by or fulfilled through Amazon.com
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 Spanoff from Well designed bike! My 20 month old son immediately took to the Strider Sport the second I unboxed it. He loved helping me put it together and couldn't wait to throw his leg over it and try it. Within days he was scooting around our house with ease. I am very happy I purchased the Strider Sport.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Tori P from Amazing Bike! I bought this a month ago for my 3 year old son and he absolutely loves it. All he talks about is his bike and we go outside to play every day because of it. He is gliding down hills and impressing us with his balance. We are going to take him to a BMX track now because he all he talks about is going fast on his bike. If you are thinking about getting one, do it! It's worth all the smiles.

Rated 5 out of 5 by BobX from Easy Assembly I bought the Strider for my 2 year-old granddaughter, knowing her leg length was short, and she had not yet grown big enough to fit on balance bikes at me local bike shop. The Strider easily fit her due to the 11-inch seat height, and she had no problem learning right away to sit comfortably on it. She's learned to walk herself along down the sidewalk, and the bike is light enough to allow her to roll across the grass. She loves it! The Strider is reasonably priced, easy to assemble and well built.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Nicole from So Light and Easy to Manage! We got the Strider Sport for our 2-year-old son's birthday. He'd been watching his big sisters ride their bikes and wanted to ride too. He is so excited that he can keep up with the big kids now! We love that the Strider is so light and easy for him to manage. He's still in the standing and walking stage, but we can't wait to see his progress as he gets more and more comfortable with it! Our daughter used a borrowed strider a few years ago. She had been using a bike with training wheels and just wasn't getting the hang of it, but after using the strider for just a few weeks, she was pedaling on two wheels on the other bike in no time, so we are true believers that they are the best way for kids to learn to ride!

Rated 5 out of 5 by RhonesMama from My 3 year old son LOVES it! This is my sons second balanc bike, but by far the best one! I love the fact it comes with two seats, as he is almost ready for the larger one. I love the ease of the adjustments on the seat and handle bars. Love that I can add a break! This bike with grow with him! The only down falls I've seen so far is one, the bike frame scrapes on a curb when he goes on and off the side walk so after only a couple weeks it has scraped off the paint. And the other thing are the blots that hold the back wheel on hit my sons legs or feet when he's moving along. At first it bothered him but he quickly learned to not hit it and now it's not an issue, I wouldn't let this part of my review deter you from getting a strider bike! Overall my son and I both LOVE this bike!! he rides it every single day, either in the house or outside!

Rated 5 out of 5 by eje201 from Awesome customer service! great bike too ;) After a last minute decision to get our daughter a Strider bike for her 3rd birthday that was only 5 days away the hunt was on. I hopped on the online chat function on Strider's website and in a matter of minutes Tyler had assured me the bike would arrive in Michigan on time for the party. He not only gave me detailed information on their distribution and shipping process but also how many days until arrival so I could be at ease about getting the bike on time for the party. Tyler also asked me to email him when my order was complete so he could follow up internally and make sure the bike came from the closest warehouse to me and that it made it out that day. Next I received conformation that the bike was on the road from Atlanta and will make it in time. Thanks again for the best customer service on the planet!

Rated 5 out of 5 by jesmat from Love it! Bought this for my 1.5yr old son. He's tall for his age but this bike is perfect for his age! He got right on and was sitting and riding in no time. He doesn't have the balance part down yet so doesn't try to pick up his feet...but he's now using his feet to propel himself on other ride on toys and lifting his feet. I think it's just a matter of time. Love the adjustable seat and handlebars. Very light weight..He can even carry it. Seems to be very well made very sturdy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Playdate Crasher from Love this for my independent son! We love our Strider Balance Bike because it’s teaching our already-independent son to work hard at what he wants (riding on two wheels) and problem solve how to get from point A to point B! He has already moved from sit-walking to sit-running! We aren’t quite ready to coast down a small hill yet, but when it warms up, we will work on it more! Strider Bikes are an excellent Christmas or birthday gift for any child who needs to learn to ride a bike with confidence!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Lauren A from Taught my 6 year old to balance I bought this bike after taking the training wheels off my 6 year olds bike. I couldn't hold him up and he couldn't balance or ride the bike. After 4 times on the strider bike, he was able to switch back to his regular bike and ride. It was amazing. I should have done this sooner!

Rated 5 out of 5 by EllaRae from Perfect bike for my 2 year old! This was a Christmas present for our 2 year old daughter. She absolutely loves it! Great for learning to ride and she has picked it up rather quickly. It has gone from riding I our house to riding it in the snow. Looking forward to getting the Strider ski attachments.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Grandma J from Fabulous Birthday Present! I bought this for our Grandson's 3rd Birthday! The look on his face, when he received it was Priceless! He has ridden it EVERYDAY since he got it last Sunday. His Mom says that he rides it almost no-stop. She has to make him get off of it and come inside periodically. Especially since it has been 99-101 in their area during this time. It works beautifully on both the sidewalk and on the grass of the backyard. The construction is so sturdy and well balanced. He has no trouble riding it or maneuvering it. He automatically got on the bike and rode away without any instruction from any adults. I had shown him the videos online before he got the bike and just from that, he knew what to do with it. A Very Happy Grandma and Grandpa.

Rated 5 out of 5 by LC27 from We love this bike! I bought this bike for my son for Christmas, about 3 months before his second birthday. My husband kind of rolled his eyes at me about it. We had a slow start because we couldn't get out soon to wear a helmet, but by his second birthday, he was loving it! We started with the seat low so he was basically walking with the bike between his legs, then gradually raised it so he had to reach for the ground more little by little. We love that the Sport can be adjusted on the spot with no tools. My son caught onto the idea that a higher seat meant he could go faster, so he'd stop every once in a while to tell us to raise it. Now that he's been riding for about 4 months he can glide for about 100yds, and even turn while gliding. He loves it, I love it, and my husband -the former eye roller- is singing the bike's praises to all our friends!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Kris from Great quality I bought this for my 2 year old granddaughters birthday, she loved it! We were impressed with the quality of the materials, it looks like it will take a lot of "love" and last for years! I plan to buy another soon for our next birthday girl!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Teton Grandma from Grandparents We have purchased two Striders in the last couple of years for granddaughters age 3. Both of them love the bikes, and one has moved confidetly to a regular bike with pedals and brakes. So much better than training wheels!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Sdp0108 from Perfect Bike for 2 year old! We bought the strider sport balance bike for our 2 year old (25 months) son for Christmas. I was worried he might be too young to understand what to do with it. I was SO wrong. Within 10-15 mins he was walking while seated. After about 30 mins he was practicing gliding. Then after about an hour, he was gliding down driveways and running/gliding on the flat pavement. We were BLOWN away! This little bike is AMAZING! He asks for his Bike from the moment he wakes up to the moment he goes to sleep! Highly highly recommend getting this bike for every toddler!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Rebecca from Could Not Be Happier We got our son a Strider bike for his 2nd birthday. He absolutely loves it and I have been amazed at how quickly he has taken to it. Riding his Strider bike is one of his favorite things to do.

Rated 5 out of 5 by bobesch from Easy and Good I bought the strider for my 2 year old grandson as a birthday present. It was very easy to order and ship to them. He is riding it in the house right now. His older sister uses it also. (She has a bike with training wheels) A nephew had gotten one at the same age and really enjoyed it. His folks would take him to the local dirt track and he loved going up and down the hills. At 3 they got him a small motorcycle that he rides.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Randi from Awesomeness on Wheels! This bike is absolutely fantastic! Prior to trying out the Strider brand, my little one was scared of the traditional children's bike. Not only did Strider provide the opportunity to learn and master balancing first but its lack of all the complicated pieces made it less scary. Our older child learned how to ride a traditional 2-wheeled bike within a week of being on a balance bike and I am thrilled that, with Strider, our youngest now has the opportunity to perfect the skills and do so on his own time. Strider bikes give children the ability to control their own destiny by making learning not only more simple but more fun. These bikes are absolutely fantastic and I would HIGHLY recommend them to anyone hoping to learn how to ride, no matter your age!

Rated 5 out of 5 by sasmommy from Best balance bike ever! I bought this for my daughter who has low muscle tone. Af first she was apprehensive, but after she learned to just walk while kind of sitting on the seat, it was all over! She loved it! She is now 5 and was one of the first kids in the neighborhood, her age, riding with no training wheels! I am so proud of her! Now her little 2 year old sister rides it around the house!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Mike C from Best Balance Bike I'm a proud owner and dad of two Strider Sport balance bikes. Worked so great for my first daughter that I purchased a second one (different color of course). In my opinion these are the best balance bikes made. It's obvious these bikes were originally thought out by someone with kids. They also obviously wanted to start their kids out young riding. I purchased both of these bikes on my daughters second birthday. They were immediately able to straddle the cross bar and begin pushing the bikes around. There are a few other well made brands but none that had a cross bar low enough or seat post that lowered enough for my smaller two year old daughters. I would have had to wait several more months before the others would work. In my opinion, age two is the time to expose this bike to children. My four year old still loves her strider and just transitioned directly to pedal bike. You will not regret buying this bike.

Rated 5 out of 5 by StayathomeNicole from Awesome bike Purchased for our son when he was 18 months. He immediately loved it. Instinctively knew how to ride it. The first day he didn't understand to sit on the seat but we let him figure it out himself and by day 2 he was cruising around the house. He's 20 months now and flies on it. We have to run to keep up. He uses it indoors and outdoors. On dirt, grass, rocks, and everything in between. The bike holds up to tantrums, it gets tossed around a lot when he gets frustrated. Everyone always asks about it and we recommend it to everyone.

Rated 5 out of 5 by cmalloy from Greatest Product Ever! Best thing I could have purchased for my child. A late bloomer in crawling and walking, he was riding his Strider at 2.5 and his pedal bike at 3.5! The bike is lightweight and very adjustable. He is so proud of himself. We now use both bikes depending on the type of trip we are taking. The Strider is still better for longer and more technical rides.
