    Your First Bike!

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    The Strider Balance Bike is a great way to get your kids into biking! More effective than starting with training wheels and less of a hassle. If your child can walk, they can ride a Strider Balance Bike! Once they've mastered their Strider, they will be ready to hop on a pedal bike as soon as they are big enough.

    This bike also comes fully assembled, so as soon as your Strider gets delivered, its ready to rip!

    If you have any questions about Strider balance bikes or exploring other options for your children, feel free to shoot me an email at PBraunstein@Backcountry.com

    Kids first bike

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    my daughter loves this bike and wont put it down, so much that we had to buy her friend down the street one just so they could play together.

    Incredible bike innovation, great price!

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    Got this for my 18-month-old for Christmas. Although she loved riding in the baby seat of my bike and was thrilled to try riding on her own, she wasn't quite coordinated / committed enough to push through the early learning stages. She's now almost 2.5 years old and is starting to scoot around a bit more, but hasn't quite figured out coasting with her feet up. All this just to say that not every 18-month-old is ready to ride. That being said, it was easy to assemble, easy to adjust seat heights for growing kids, and built to withstand constant falls. We love this bike!

    Kids LOVE This

      This is a HUGE win when you give this to the little one in your life.
      My friend's kid went right from the strider to a two wheel bike - no training wheels! I can only hope for the same enthusiasm for my neice who I just gifted this to!

      Funcle (fun uncle) for the win!

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

      I snagged one of these for my nephew and he is loving it! these are such great balance bikes that are built and durable. It should work well for him for the next few years and i am confident his new infant brother will inherit it when the time comes to move to pedals.

      I won Christmas this year with this

        I gave this to my niece in Pink for Christmas and she lost her mind. It definitely stole the show. This is a great entry level bike for toddlers to get comfortable without pedals. Really easy to assemble and my niece was cruising around within minutes.

        Cruisin'

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

        I got this for my nephew and he has turned into a little speed demon with this bike. Crusin all around the house. Why walk when you can ride!?

        Great start to biking

        • Familiarity: I've used it several times

        The 3 year old finally joins the crew with this little starter bike. The size and weight are not overwhelming for this slender toddler. Has been a big hit and the perfect transition to a more complete bike setup when she's ready. The PINK is AWESOME.

        Stridin' in Style

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

        I purchased this for my 18 month old daughter for Christmas. This is her first bike or ride on toy of any kind. At first she would only walk beside it, not fully understanding the concept of straddling the bike to walk with it. It only took her about 3-4 more times to be more comfortable riding the bike. Now she is 23 months old and will grab the bike, lift it, ride it, she can even turn by herself; she absolutely loves it. She loves turning it upside down and spinning the wheels as well. I know this has helped with her balance and I'm so glad we started with this bike as her first bike. This will last her a few years and I know we will not have to ever use training wheels. The bright pink color is so cute and fun, she loves it. A bike like this makes the best gift, start them as young as you can!

        Great balance bike

          The assembly on this is a no brainer and everything needed is included in the box. Every kiddo I’ve seen with one of these picks it up so quickly and makes the transition to a pedal bike a breeze. The adjustments for height is very simple and the wheels that will never go flat make for a low maintenance, long lasting purchase.

          Learn so quickly

            I bought this for my nephew for Christmas and he was a little scared of it at first but hopped right on the next day. It seems like he'll be able to ride a bike soon. This bike is really easy to assemble and has an adjustable seat and handlebar height so it can fit any child.

            The best teaching tool

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

            If you want your kids on bikes faster than your neighbors, this is the way to do it. teaching the fundamentals of balance first, this will accelerate your child's abilities better than a tricycle could ever.

            Best Way to Start

            • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

            Bought this bike for my nephew who saw everyone else on a bike and wanted one too. This is the best way to learn for him as he learns to scoot it around first and then learns to balance the bike after he gets more use to it. He is a tall boy for his age so I should gone a little bigger but we were still able to raise the seat and it worked out real well for him.

            Start them young

            • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

            I purchased this as a gift for my daughter's 2nd birthday and she took to it very quickly. I genuinely believe this is a great alternative to training wheels, and you can start their training at an earlier age.

            Best first bike ever!

            • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

            Our son rode one of these from age of 18 months through 5. It was difficult to switch him to pedals because he was so used to pushing.. but after a day of the pedal bike he was off with no training wheels. It's amazing what these bikes do for teaching balance and turning!!
