- Strider No-Pedal Balance Bike from Strider Sports
- We recommend this product for ages 1 and up
What It Is
Strider Bike is a no-pedal bike that helps little ones learn how to balance while working on coordination. The way it works is that the child has full control over their balance. Their feet are what power this bike, and they can catch themselves from falling at any time. No pedals to get in the way. The Strider is made of a lightweight yet durable steel frame with puncture-proof tires. It weighs about seven pounds. The footrest can be used by the child when they are comfortable with their glide, allowing for some early-learning trials. The seat can be adjusted from 11 inches to 16 inches from the ground, and the handle can be adjusted as well. The Strider Bike is available in six colors: blue, green, orange, pink, red, and yellow.
Is It Fun?
For kids as young as 15 months, this is a great way for them to feel independent as they hold on to the bars and try to walk with the bike. Eventually, they will be sitting on the seat.
Who It’s For
The Strider Bike is for ages 1-5, particularly kids 30-44 inches with a weight limit of 50 pounds.
