Teach the Balance and Independence with STRIDER Balance Bikes

As a parent, you always want the best for your child. One of the best gifts you can give them is the gift of balance and independence. And that is exactly what STRIDER balance bikes offer. In this blog, we will be discussing everything you need to know about STRIDER balance bikes, including accessories, safety, and races.

Firstly, let's talk about what a STRIDER balance bike is. A balance bike is a two-wheeled bike without pedals. Children learn to balance and steer while their feet are firmly on the ground. This makes the transition to a pedal bike much easier for them. STRIDER balance bikes are lightweight, durable, and come in various sizes to cater to children of all ages.

When it comes to safety, STRIDER balance bikes are designed with safety in mind. The bikes are low to the ground, making it easy for children to control and balance. The bike's lightweight design also ensures that children can easily maneuver it without getting hurt. However, it is essential to note that a helmet should always be worn when riding a STRIDER balance bike.

One of the great things about STRIDER balance bikes is that children can start using them as early as 18 months. The Strider 12 Sport Balance Bike, for example, is designed for children aged 18 months to 5 years. It is adjustable, so as your child grows, the bike can be adjusted to fit them comfortably.

Another great thing about STRIDER balance bikes is that they can be converted into a pedal bike once your child is ready. This is because once children master the art of balancing and steering, they can easily transition to a pedal bike. STRIDER balance bikes come with an optional pedal kit that can be attached to the bike, transforming it into a traditional bike with pedals. This makes the transition from balance bike to pedal bike much easier for children, and it's a great way to save money on buying a separate pedal bike. So not only do STRIDER balance bikes provide a great learning experience, but they can also grow with your child's abilities and development.

Now, let's talk about accessories. STRIDER balance bikes offer various accessories that can enhance your child's riding experience. One of the most popular accessories is the Rocking Base. This base allows your child to rock back and forth, helping them develop their balance and coordination. The Ski Base is another popular accessory, especially for children living in colder regions. This accessory can easily be attached to the bike, transforming it into a ski bike.

Finally, let's talk about races. STRIDER balance bikes are a popular choice for racing events across the country. These events are a great way for children to showcase their skills and meet other children who share the same passion for riding. The Strider Cup Racing Series is a popular racing event that takes place across the country. Children as young as 2 years old can participate in these events, making it a great way to introduce your child to the world of bike racing.
