Strider Balance Bike Model Comparison Chart

One thing that makes Strider Balance Bikes so unique is that they make learning to steer on two wheels smooth and easy. By focusing on balance first, Striders allow riders to learn how to lean through turns, physical skills that can’t be accomplished on training wheels. It’s important that kids learn balance first and once they are proficient, adding pedals is the next step. The act of physically learning how to pedal only takes a short amount of time but learning to balance on two wheels is the part that takes practice. 

Trying to determine which Strider Balance Bike is right for your kid?  Here is a full feature comparison chart.  The lightest weight Strider is the Strider Pro.
