{Review & Giveaway} STRIDER bike ~ Balance bike, training bike the no-pedal way to learn confidence in riding!


STRIDER™ balance bikes are industry-leading training bikes that help children as young as 18 months learn to ride on two wheels. STRIDER balance bikes focus on the fundamentals of balancing, leaning, and steering without the distractions and complications of pedals or training wheels.

The STRIDER’s simple, no-pedal design builds confidence and eliminates fear by allowing kids to have their
feet on the ground and progress at their own pace. This unique design teaches young children balance on two wheels right from the start, avoiding developmental delays typical with tricycles and training-wheel bikes.


Genuine STRIDER balance bikes are the lightest balance bikes in their category, have the lowest seat height (for the youngest starting age), and are tested to the most stringent safety standards. Frame-integrated footrests, proprietary components, and the ability to easily adjust to a growing child, make the STRIDER the only bike your child needs to develop their riding skills and successfully transfer onto their first pedal bike without training wheels.

Review:
My youngest has been scared of riding her big kid bike without training wheels, but is more than old enough to learn.  When I received the STRIDER bike for review - they thankfully sent an additional seat with a longer/taller adjustment for her to use since she was 5 when she first started riding her STRIDER.  After just a few weeks of riding around in our driveway and down our street on the STRIDER, she asked if I would help her ride her big kid bike.  She started pedalling within just a few moments of my help and now rides like a pro!


It only took her one afternoon of practice and she was off down the street on her own.  All it took was a little time on the STRIDER learning to balance, and get the confidence she needed!  I love this STRIDER bike and highly recommend it for all young ones to start riding on.  I wish we had used one much sooner as I honestly believe she would have been riding a pedal bike much sooner if she had first learned on a STRIDER instead of training wheels!
  • STRIDER bikes are ultra light weight and easy to control.
  • STRIDER bikes increase balance, coordination, and confidence.
  • STRIDER bikes allow children to focus on learning balance first.
  • STRIDER bikes are free of chains, pedals, and protrusions that can harm a child.
  • STRIDER bikes provides a safe, smooth, and natural transition to a pedal bike.
Now, she has just today moved up a size of bike and is tearing up the neighborhood with her sister and friends and has even asked when our family can all go on bike rides together.  I now have a hard time keeping her home, she is always off on her bike somewhere - Thanks STRIDER!

    1. This great Strider bike is for ages 18 months up to age 5 or 6. As long as baby can Walk, and is steady on his feet - this bike is great! He just walks along with it until he learns to sit and push with feet.

  18. If I won this we would hold it for our baby on the way. We have tow older kids already so this would be perfect for #3 when they begin to ride. Since we do not know what we are having I would probably go with Orange or Red so it would work for either a girl or a boy.
