The original design of the 12" Strider Sport has always been considered one of the best balance bike to fit a toddler as it does everything a balance bike needs to do right up until their 6th birthday.
The 12" Strider Sport suitable for kids from as soon as they can walk to 5 years has now got better!
Strider Grips are Unique. Our 12.7mm steel handlebar is 43% smaller than standard to allow better control with tiny hands. Custom logo mini-grips are soft urethane with protective ends. The machined aluminium quick release allows “No Tools” height adjustment from 46-56cm (18-22”).
Strider-exclusive, ultralight one-piece wheels sport a raised-letter, five-spoke design with 10 bearing support gussets for maximum strength at the lightest weight possible. Top-quality sealed cartridge bearings roll smooth and never need adjustment.
EVA polymer tyres are super light and durable yet offer a smooth ride. These are another Strider-exclusive, with our unique non-slip tread pattern and best of all, they never need air and will never go flat.
SEATS - INTRODUCING THE NEW PERFORMANCE PADDED SEAT
The durable, all-weather padded mini-saddle is designed specifically for beginning riders and their tiny hips. Smaller, narrower at the front and wider at the back, and lighter than a typical saddle, this seat allows for proper riding position and posture and is ideal for children from 18 months to 5 years. The Sport model also includes an extra long seat post to fit kids over 3 years and allows seat height adjustments up to 48cm (19”).
BAR AND SEAT CLAMPS
Machined aluminium quick release allows “No Tools” saddle height adjustment from 27-48cm (11-16”) for the perfect fit for your child and for handlebars to be set at the perfect height for your child as they grow.
FOOTRESTS -The new standard!
Other balance bikes have no footrest! Where kids put their feet on those is a mystery to us. Our unique, Patented frame-integrated footrests are properly positioned directly below the saddle for natural bike balance. This position also fosters the advanced ability to stand while coasting and has the exclusive Strider Performance footrest for a larger surface area.
Strider-exclusive rear brake mount allows the addition of a foot-operated brake once the kids are proficiently gliding with feet on the footrests.Brake sold separately. We never suggest fitting this to start as it can confuse - the ideal is that your child learns to stop using their feet as in an emergency that is the safest way to stop.We don't endorse finger pulled lever brakes as our research shows that kids can't always reach then nor control them uniformly
In a range of colours, designed to inspire children's love of bright colours, there is a Strider for everyone. Buy now.
