Strider - 12 Classic Balance Bike, Ages 18 Months to 3 Years


Product description

While the industry typically uses "entry-level" as shorthand for a non-race bike, we can assert with comfort and confidence that the custom grips, saddles, and other features that set Strider's lighter, more expensive models apart from the "entry-level" 12 Classic Balance Bike probably won't be missed. The 12 Classic is designed for aspiring cyclists from 18 months to 3 years of age, providing a platform to transition from striding to coasting in order to learn the balance and handling skills necessary for eventually piloting a proper bicycle. The balance bike's sturdy frame is rounded off with flat-free tires, an adjustable seatpost, footrests for gliding, and brake mounts so that -- as the young rider's coasting skills increase -- a rear brake can be added to keep things in check.

  • LEARN TO RIDE: A balance bike is the first step in learning how to ride a bike. It lets your child learn to balance and steer without the complexity of pedaling. Once they've mastered those skills, transitioning to a pedal bike is easy!
  • GROWS WITH YOUR CHILD: The seat and handlebar heights adjust to accommodate ages 18 months to 3 years, or a 12 to 17" inseam. The 12 Classic is perfect for future upgrades such as a foot brake or heavy-duty tires.
  • DESIGNED FOR YOUNG KIDS: The lightweight frame weighs only 6.7 pounds, making it easy for your child to ride and stride. The built-in footrests are perfect for learning to balance and glide.
  • MADE TO LAST: Kids sure put things to the test. With the 12 Classic's durable steel frame, all-weather seat, and puncture-proof tires, you don't have to worry about damage or maintenance.
  • SIMPLE AND EASY: The simple yet durable design is easy for young riders to take their first steps on a bike and progress to striding, gliding, and balancing. Your child will be riding in no time!
