Strider Balance Bike Review

pink-striderSay goodbye to training wheels, and say hello to the Strider balance bike.

With training wheel bikes, the focus is on pedaling instead of developing your child’s motor skills. Strider bikes flip that equation, teaching kids balance, coordination, and confidence – so that the transition to a pedal bike is simple.

Strider balance bikes are awesome because:

  • They weigh under 7 pounds, so even the littlest kids can handle them
  • The handlebar and seat height are fully adjustable
  • The tires never need air
  • And they’re super cute with six colors to choose from!

If your toddler can walk, they can start cruising on a Strider over dirt, grass, and pavement with ease. And kids up to 5 years old can ride them.

My 2.5 year old Griffin is crazy about his Strider, and he’s already gliding along like a pro. If you’re considering buying a bike for your little one, definitely give Striders a look.

    Confidence. Starting out with the basics. These words all sound familiar. They are the reason why STRIDER bikes work. Kids start with the basics, balance, coordination and confidence. Once kids learn those foundational functions you will be amazed at what they can do just like you will.

    My daughter would love this! Just turned 4 and this is a great alternative to training wheels.

    We loved ours, until daddy accidently backed over it with the van. Thankfully no one was on it.
