Learn, Ride & Have Fun: Strider 12 Sport No-Pedal Balance Bike
Kids are learning the art of riding bikes at ages we wouldn’t dream of thanks to the no-pedal balance bike! From 18 months old kids can learn balance and coordination until they are tall, confident and brave enough to ride one with pedals. Their confidence grow much faster with the balance bike since they will not be dependent on bikes with stabilizers, which fail to teach the art of keeping your balance.
This Strider has an adjustable seat that will keep your child riding up until they turn 5 years old, which makes this a worthy investment with great value since you won’t have to buy them a new bicycle for around 3-4 years. When they get to around 3 – 5 years old you can simply use the second saddle and extra long seat post to accommodate their growing body!
Over recent years these balance bikes have grown in popularity due to their ease of use and success in helping thousands of children learn to how to balance in a much more unique way than bikes with stabilizers. Unlike the balance bike, those with stabilizers can offer a little too much support and are not near as transport-friendly. Getting one of these balance bikes in the trunk of a car is much easier than one with stabilizers and tricycles.
There are many copy-cat Striders available, but it’s worth knowing that genuine Striders are the lightest balance bikes in their category at just 3kg ensuring they are easy for kids to ride around on and they have much more stringent safety standards than some of the ‘cheaper’ models around too. The Strider is also super easy to adjust to different heights as your child grows.
They can be used indoors and outdoors, and are no doubt the best option to help your child develop their riding skills until they are ready for their first pedal bike without training wheels. You can find them on Amazon.co.uk in your child’s favourite colour!
