Product Description

Details

Super light balance bike weighing just 2.4kg and suitable for children aged 1 years and over

Handlebars 

Unique 12.7mm swaged-aluminum handlebar is 43% smaller than standard to allow better control with tiny hands. Custom logo mini-grips are soft urethane with protective ends. Machined-aluminum quick release allows “No Tools” height adjustment from 46-56cm (18-22”).

The included number plate features custom Pro graphics for that hi-performance look.

Wheels

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.

Tyres

EVA polymer (industrial foam) tyres are super light and durable yet offer a smooth ride. These are another Strider-exclusive and best of all, they never need air and will never go flat.

New Padded Performance Seat

Seats - The NEW performance Padded Saddle with 2 Seat posts.

The durable, all-weather padded mini-saddle is designed specifically for beginning riders and their tiny hips. Smaller, narrower, 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 seatpost to fit kids over 3 years and allows seat height adjustments up to 48cm (19”). Simply transfer the Saddle onto the longer seat post to give you the height extension range that Strider is world famous for. 27cm to 48cm..

Bar and seat clamps

Machined aluminum quick release allows “No Tools” saddle height adjustment for the perfect fit for your child and for handlebars to be set at the perfect height for your child as they grow.

Footrest Pro

Footrests

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 Pro footrest for a larger surface area.

Brake Mount 

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

Really light, easy to handle, a savvy buy for the future grandchildren.
I spent a bit more to get the best and that is what this bike is. The main feature is that it is light. It can be handled easily by the child. The set up is easy and altering the seat height between children takes no time. It’s a well balanced bike and a joy for the rider.

A fantastic product at a reasonable price.
I bought this for my grandson's 2nd birthday. He loved it and was able to get on and off himself and could pick it up due to its light weight. The bike is very sturdy and easy to handle for toddlers. My grandson has had loads of fun on it and within a couple of weeks is already improving his balance. An excellent buy.

The love of Strider just comes so naturally
Bought this for my Grandson who is 2.5 years old. He absolutely loves it because it's sturdy, light and very manoueverable. An accompanying ramp means he can use it indoors as well to build his confidence when its too wet outdoors. I did try a cheaper version and a wooden one but he declined them both.

Suits my 2 year old
Bought for my son's 2nd birthday and it fits him perfectly. At the moment he tends to stand over it and walk it along but he is beginning to sit and push after a couple of weeks. I bought this one over other brands as I decided that lowest weight was my highest priority. Time will tell if lack of hand brake becomes a problem but at this age there is absolutely no need for one. The lack of steering limiter can cause a problem become the bars are curved and my son doesn't yet understand that there is a correct way around - though the number plate helps solve this. Overall it suits a 2 year old well.

Brill so far!
I would give it 5 stars but my son has not had the chance to make the most of it yet: he's not quite 2 yet and is still addicted to his Toddlebike. However, what he has done is sit on it, walk round on it and hug it. It's light, good looking and when he has toppled over, he has been able to bounce right back up again. I will update once he has spent a bit more time on it - and taken part in his first Strider race!

Brilliant
I bought them for my 23-month nephew who lives abroad. Prior to my purchase, I called you to ask for info about weight, delivery, dimensions etc. The lady on the phone was amazing, not only she provided all the info I needed, she was also friendly. I really appreciate it. As for the bike, I liked that it is light, it was easy to take it with me on a plane. Also very easy to assemble. My nephew is only walking with it, but I think once he gets used to it and start riding it very soon. All in all, great experience, thank you!

Love it.
We bought this for our son's second birthday to replace an outgrown Scuttlebug and we love it. It's lightweight enough that he can manage it very easily (also important for when I inevitably end up carrying it halfway round the park!). It is easy to manage and although he took a few tries to get the hang of it he's scooting along pretty well now. We can tell that it will hold interest for him for a long time to come as he learns to go faster and glide. It was easy to assemble and the company were very helpful and communicative. I would definitely recommend this for even very young toddlers. It's definitely worth paying more for the lighter version.

excellent product
We bought this as a Christmas gift for our granddaughter who is nearly two years old. It is well made and sturdy and also very light which means she can handle it easily. The smaller saddle is fitted just now and can be replaced with the larger one as she grows.

Strider bike uk is the total package product - service - delivery all five star.
No arguments...hands down THE BEST BALANCE BIKE YOU CAN BUY FOR YOUR CHILD...we bought the st-pro last year for our son. Our 2 yr old daughter struggled on his old trax (halfords model) but this Christmas she received her own St-pro! Loads lighter and easier handling she's already so confidently zooming around. We also bought pink grips and wheels for her and new orange grips and wheels for our son from this brilliant family run business. Great service and help on the phone, good website fast accurate delivery. Strider bike uk is the total package product - service - delivery all five star.

Definitely worth the extra money
Absolutely brilliant bike, definitely worth paying the extra £20 for it, my 2 year old son can literally just carry it out into the garden himself it's that light, very sturdy and well built, would highly recommend.

Worth paying extra for!
Great bike. Proof that you get what you pay for! The lightness of the bike is it's best feature, but every aspect of the bike is well thought through and feels solid and well made. I like to options to personalise it with additional accessories.
