Why buy a Strider balance bike

A bike where the pedals have been removed teaches the balance required to ride a bike, as there is nothing complicated to confuse. Straddling two wheels, with feet planted on the floor your child starts off steady and can progress at their own pace, without the need for ever needing stabilisers. Strider's are the number one globally selling bike for toddlers as they are super light and have the lowest seat height of any balance or no pedal bike, allowing children as young as 1 year old to ride with confidence.

Kids learn balance safely and then when older can move to a heavier bike with pedals. Using a balance bike is now regarded to be the safest way to learn how to ride a bicycle, as stabilisers just teach the child to rock from one side to the other AND the child still needs parents assistance up kurbs etc. A bike with stabilisers means the all important skill, balance, has still to be learnt when the stabilisers are removed. A STRIDER has been proven by a university to improve children's balance and coordination.

They start by walking their bike along, feet safely on the floor and then soon it turns into a running bike - you will see why really quickly!

The Strider is globally becoming the fastest selling balance bike - here's a few reasons why.

Learn and have fun from the start with STRIDER

Improvements over the ST2 2011 bike.Full details

The STRIDER teaches your child balance, coordination and develops confidence safely from the start. Pedalling is easy to learn later, its the all important balance that needs to be taught, and the STRIDER has no pedals so that kids can concentrate solely on learning control, direction and getting those motor skills improved.

Step 1 At first the kids grab the handle bars, straddle the bike and walk without ever sitting down on the seat. And they are completely stable: Two wheels, front and back, with nothing complicated in between. With feet firmly on the ground, and hands bracing the handle bar grips. Try not to intervene too- they will learn quicker if they can just take it at their own pace.

The next step: Kids quickly learn to sit down, push their feet and zip right along as they balance on two wheels.

Watch them learn!

Your child becomes significantly more mobile. The Strider™ opens up a whole world for your child to ride on. Our own children frequently use a local BMX track, on their Strider.
