The strider bike is the original metal balance bike designed in 2007 and is perfect for children aged 18 months to 5 years. It is super light, easy to control and features handlebars and seats that can be adjusted to any position. Quality and safety are fundamental and we believe there is no better choice than a Strider Balance Bike. As the market leading specialist balance bike manufacturer, STRIDER has developed the range to include a bike for every age.

The 12" balance bike for 2 -5 years (younger if they can walk), the 16" for ages 6 -12 years and the 20" for teenagers and adults

Our University Research shows that learning balance and coordination with exercise jump-starts a child's growth and development during the important developmental years of early childhood so start them on their cycling adventure young!
