The Strider PREbike balance running bike takes pedaling out of the mix of biking so that kids can concentrate solely on learning two-wheel balance. Unlike tricycles and bikes with training wheels, the Strider allows children to find the glide and balance of biking first--so that they have more confidence when presented with a pedaled bike.

Using the Strider PREbike allows children to benefit from the two wheeled bike experience independently and at their own pace. Tricycles tip over, scrape ankles, and are difficult to pedal. Bicycles with training wheels are tall, heavy, and can be unstable for young riders. The Strider PREbike is about 1/3 the weight of a typical 12-inch bike with training wheels, and is free from any cables, chains, sprockets, pedals or protrusions that can harm your child. Kids begin by straddling the bike, leaning on the handle bars and walking it forward. When they are ready kids can run the bike forward, gaining the speed and momentum required for balance. Finally, kids lift their feet and glide freely. At the first feeling of instability, your child will instinctively place both feet securely on the ground--so there are no "tricycle tip-overs" or "training-wheel wobbles" that stir-up a fear, hesitancy, or dislike of bike riding.

Unlike other balance bikes, the Strider PREbike has an adjustable design that will grow with your child. Both the handlebar and the seat are adjustable on the bike, accommodating kids from 30 to 44 inches tall. The bike's adjustable seat height starts at 11 inches from the ground providing a low center of gravity so that children as young as one year old can maneuver the bike and have fun learning balance. Control is further enhanced with a low and flat handlebar design so that kids can reach forward rather than up, for better leverage and maneuverability. And, as your child becomes more confident, the Strider's integrated foot rests provide a place for both feet to sit while they coast along.

Built to travel with your child wherever she or he deems appropriate, the Strider PREbike is outfitted with large, puncture-proof all-terrain tires that roll well over grass, gravel, dirt, and bumps in the sidewalk. These one-piece molded wheels don't have spokes that can catch clothing or sticks, and better yet, will not require frequent filling. Meanwhile, the handlebar padding takes the jolt out when kids ride over bumps. Finally, quick-clamps on the seat and handlebar allow for easy, no-tool assembly and adjustment of the bike as your child grows.
