Learning to ride a bike for the first time can be really tough, especially with no prior experience on a moving object, and when the bike is heavier than you can even hold up. Combine this with a labyrinth of brake cable and pointy and sharp pedals, and you've got yourself a recipe for disaster. Thankfully, children as young as 18 months can benefit from the fantastic machine that is one of these Strider balance bikes. The balance bike is as it sounds; it's a pedal-less bike which, like this one, has easily adjustable handlebars and seatposts that change in relation to your child's size. The wheels and forks move as a pedal bike does, however your child just has to focus on what is really important: Staying on.
Strider have numerous types of balance bikes, each with unique colours and sizes, and many of which are available here at Pushys. This Realtree bike is a 12” classic model and it boasts the following;
Standard 22.2mm steel handlebar and soft urethane grips with protective ends. Machined aluminium binder clamp allows height adjustment from 46-56cm (18-22”). 5mm wrench included.
Strider-exclusive, ultralight one-piece wheels sport a raised-letter, five-spoke design with 10 bearing support gussets for maximum strength at the lightest weight possible. Top-quality sealed cartridge bearings roll smooth and never need adjustment.
EVA polymer (industrial foam) tyres are super light and durable yet offer a smooth ride. Best of all, they never need air and will never go flat.
The durable, all-weather mini-saddle is designed specifically for beginning riders and their tiny hips. Smaller, narrower, and lighter than a typical saddle, this seat allows for proper riding position and posture. ** riders over 4 years old may need XL saddle and long seat post sold separately.
Bar and seat clamps:
Machined aluminium binder clamp allows saddle height adjustment from 28-41cm (11-16”) for the perfect fit for your child. 5mm wrench included.
Unique, frame-integrated footrests are properly positioned directly below the saddle for natural bike balance. This position also fosters the advanced ability to stand while gliding as well as pumping and jumping the bike.
Strider-exclusive rear brake mount allows the addition of a foot-operated brake once the kids are proficiently gliding with feet on the footrests. brake kit sold separately.
