If your toddler can walk, a Strider will get your toddler cruising over dirt, grass, and pavement with ease. Designed to be steady, stable, and safe, the Strider bike is perfect for children from 18 months to 5 years old.Weighing only 6.7 pounds, the Strider No-Pedal Balance Bike is designed to be super light for ease of handling by young riders. The bike includes patented frame-integrated footrests for advanced rider development, and the handlebar and saddle height are adjustable for growing children.The Strider teaches your child balance, coordination and develops glittering confidence. Trikes and bikes with training wheels don’t. Traditional bicycles place too much of the focus on learning to pedal -- skimping on developing your child’s motor skills.
