Strider 12" Sport Balance Bike - Matte Gray
12 Sport Balance BikeWhat is a balance bike?
Balance bikes are a very simple bike designed to teach young children how to steer and balance on two wheels.
Balance bikes are designed with only foot propulsion to teach the fundamentals of riding. When the fundamentals of balance and steering are mastered, transitioning to a bicycle with pedals or motorcycle is easy.
When learning to ride, a child needs to experience how leaning and steering affects the balance of the bike.
By starting out on a balance bike, your child will develop balance, coordination, and confidence!
We believe in raising kids who excel at life and always have the courage to tackle whatever comes next. That’s why the Strider 12 Sport has become the ultimate vehicle for kids as young as 18 months. Your tiny-legged toddler is ready to ride, thirsting for freedom, and craving adventure. Give your child the bike that set the world on fire and encourages them to experience the thrill of riding while developing confidence and coordination…before they’re even out of diapers.
The Sport is our best all-around model. Mini-grips mean little mitts can easily take control and make this lean, mean, durable bike the biggest bang for your buck, which is probably why it’s our best seller. The 12 Sport is the perfect bike to take your child from baby steps to big strides, all without busting out a toolkit (tool-free seat and handlebar adjustment AND tires that never go flat). The Strider Sport has a seat height range from 28-48 cm (11-19 in.), which means it fits a huge range of inseam lengths (30-51 cm [12-20 in.]). The cushy, padded seat and an additional extra-long seatpost means your child will get years out of their Strider.
Boring specs aside, this is the bike that introduces kids to the freedom, power, and responsibility of riding. Now they have the power to keep up with you when you’re out and about. No more strollers. No more of those ridiculous kid leashes. Your child can experience the truly amazing freedom that comes with being a part of the Strider family.
In our quest to turn kids into awesome human beings, we even made our Official Strider Learn-To-Ride Guide available online to anyone who registers their child’s Strider. Become your kiddo’s biggest cheerleader with the best bike out there.
