A BALANCE BIKE IS SIMPLY THE BEST WAY FOR YOUR CHILD TO LEARN
The Strider 12 Sport is the perfect balance bike to instill the courage and confidence in your child to face whatever comes their way... before they’re even potty trained! It introduces kids to the freedom of riding while developing balance and coordination. As soon as your child can walk they can stride on this perfectly designed balance bike!
A great all-around model, the Strider 12 Sport is built with a lightweight, steel frame that can handle the gnarliest of toddler abuse. Mini-grips mean little mitts can easily take control and make this lean, mean, durable bike the biggest bang for your buck, which is probably why it’s one of our best selling balance bikes. The 12 Sport is the perfect bike to take your child from baby steps to big strides, all without busting out a toolkit (tool-free seat and handlebar adjustment AND tires that never go flat). The Strider Sport has a seat height range from 28-48 cm (11-19 in.), which means it fits a huge range of inseam lengths from 30-51 cm (12-20 in.). The cushy, padded seat and an additional extra-long seatpost means your child will get years out of their Strider.
Boring specs aside, this is the bike that introduces kids to the freedom, power, and responsibility of riding. Now they have the power to keep up with you when you’re out and about. No more strollers. Your child can experience the truly amazing freedom that comes with being a part of the Strider family.
In our quest to turn kids into awesome human beings, we offer Strider's official Learn-To-Ride Stride Guide below in the Resources. Become your kiddo’s biggest cheerleader with Strider's best selling balance bike worldwide!

Strider has designed a couple of really cool and unique accessories for the Strider 12 Sport that your little one is sure to love!
Strider Rocking Base: If your child isn't quite ready for a balance bike, the Strider Rocking Base transforms any 12" Strider (Classic, Sport, and Pro) into a modern rocking horse. Your Strider Balance Bike easily locks into the Rocking Base until it's time to turn them loose with just balance bike.
Strider 12 Snow Skis: Strap these skis on to any Strider 12 Balance Bike (that’s right…Classic, Sport, and Pro) and make it an official powder pony ready to shred some serious gnar at the local sledding hill. Easy installation and no tools necessary.

RETURNS & EXCHANGES
Our "Ride Happy" Guarantee: We want you to love your purchase, but if you are not completely satisfied, we offer hassle-free returns on all orders.
You have 30 days from receiving your order to initiate your return with us:
Returns must be in NEW condition with original packaging and product tags.
You are responsible for packaging and return shipping. You may purchase a return shipping label from us, which is likely your least expensive option with our discounted rates.
Please take your new bike for a "test ride" to make sure it's right for your Rider! Our standard for still being in new condition after a "test ride" is similar to a local bike shop that offers test rides outside their shop. We understand some "dust on the tires," but please keep it new (and hold on to packaging) until you are sure you're keeping it!
Your original shipping cost is non-refundable.
If you'd like to return your order, please start here.
