No pedals, no problem. When have you ever heard that in your life? Well, you would have heard it en mass had you been fortunate enough to grow up in the age of the Strider ST-3 Kid's Running Bike. And while it's too bad that there wasn't a bike like this for us to ride when we were 18 months old, your youngster is growing up in the golden age of the Running Bike. Say goodbye to training wheels, and say hello to fun in the dirt, grass, or wherever the little tike wants to roll.

The idea behind the Strider ST-3 is simple -- by eliminating the fussy bits of breakable, cumbersome components, children can pick up the essentials of cycling with ease. And by essentials, we primarily mean the hardest part of learning to ride -- balance. With the ST-3, Junior propels the bike forward with his feet, and because of the adjustable quick-release seat post, your child can keep their feet on the ground whenever they need to get stable. Eventually, after their balancing skills develop, they can kick up their feet onto the patented, integrated Launchpad Footrests. Simply put, there isn't an easier or safer way for your child to learn the basics of riding. That's why Strider recommends the ST-3 for ages ranging from as low as 18 months all the way up to 5 years.

And to make sure that you get the respect and awe of being Super Mom or Dad, the ST-3 requires the bare minimum of maintenance. Not only is there a tool-free assembly, but the EVA polymer tires will never go flat. The wheels also use a tirelessly durable one-piece design -- think of your coveted mag wheels as a kid. Basically, all that you ever need to do is adjust the quick-release handlebars and seat post to a comfortable height as your child grows.

For safety, the new Mini-Saddle is shaped to accommodate the tiny hips of your toddler. This provides better balance, and makes it a breeze for them to get on and off of the bike in a hurry. Strider also included a pad over the handlebars for a touch of added protection.

The Strider ST-3 Kid's Running Bike is available in one size and in the colors Blue, Green, Monster Jam, Orange, Pink, Red, and Yellow. Please note that Strider does not recommend the ST-3 for children under the age of 18 months or for children over the age of 5.

Daughter loves it!

  • Familiarity:I've put it through the wringer

My two year old loves her red strider. It is super light weight and easy for her to carry around. She is learning balance and is getting ready for a big girl bike in few years.


    I love the idea of my kiddo not needing training wheels on a bike after mastering this. I do agree that the new model seats are hard but you can get soft seats for them. The harder seats are streamlined for younger riders and hard because they generally wear diapers to cushion them. They soft one is for older toddlers and available for the bike.

    Hard seat

    • Familiarity:I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

    The seat is hard plastic without any cushion. My almost three year old reported it hurt too much to ride. He's never complained about other balance bikes.

    Seems cool

    • Familiarity:I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share

    I bought this for my nephew. He is only 16 months old, so he is a little small for it. But his eyes lit up when he saw it all assembled. He enjoyed being pushed around on it.

    I want to buy this bike for my kid, but I...

    I want to buy this bike for my kid, but I need to know the dimensions of the box that will be shipped. Could you help me with that?
