Strider 12 Classic Balance Bike
Introduce your tot to the fun of cycling as soon as they can walk!
A balance bike is simply the best way for a child to learn balance and learn to ride a bike.
Strider balance bikes are very simple bikes designed to teach young children how to steer and balance on two wheels. Striders are designed with only foot propulsion to teach the fundamentals of riding. Because they have no pedals or other complicated forms of propulsion, most children find riding a Strider as easy as walking. When the fundamentals of balance and steering are mastered, transitioning to a bicycle with pedals is straightforward.
