Balance comes first.

The Strider ST-4 was created to get your toddler safely rolling on two wheels through its confidence-inspiring design. The little "no-pedal balance bike" is perfect for youngsters ranging in age from 18 months to five years old.

With a wheel in front and one in the back, along with a low seat and something to grab ahold of, the ST-4 provides a stable starting point for small children. The really small kids start by just walking along while straddling the bike, and as they develop coordination and confidence, the ST-4's design allows them to begin rolling without their feet on the ground. This is the transition that training wheels don't provide — placing too much emphasis on learning to pedal, rather than developing balance and motor skills first.

As your little rider develops and grows, so too does the Strider. At just 6.7 pounds, the ST-4 features an adjustable saddle and handlebar, as well as durable EVA polymer tires that never need air. The Strider's frame has been coated on either side of the rear wheel, providing a grippy and intuitive "launchpad" footrest for the rider who is comfortable rolling without feet. The little grips and handlebar were designed for a child's small hands, and the weatherproof "mini-saddle" provides proper sizing and posture for kids.

The Strider ST-4 is available in one size and in the colors Blue, Green, Orange, Pink, Red, and Yellow.

This thing is amazing

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

My son is not yet a year and half old but he already loves his Strider. In fact, we have to hide it at times or that is the only thing he wants to do. Since this was a Christmas present, he is only able to ride indoors now but he will be at full speed once the snow melts. It is amazing to see how quickly young children gain the biking skills and confidence that it took us all years to get with training wheels. I recommend the Strider to anybody ready to get their little ones on two wheels.

My bike! My bike!

My daughter is almost 2 yrs old and has been using her Strider for about 5 months now. At first she would just hop on and I would have to help steer and keep it balanced. But it wasn't long until she got it on her own. She now throws her leg over and can take off up the driveway on her own. Her favorite thing now, is put her feet up and let dad push her and go fast! It won't be much longer until she will be cruising with her feet up on her own. Also its puts a smile on dad's face when we are hanging out in the garage and she starts yelling"'my bike, my bike!" and wants to go for a ride!

Now as for the bike, it is a solid built bike with an great adjustable seat that should work for a while, and that won't be outgrown like most everything else for kids these days. The foot rest are a great addition to let kids keep there feet up. Just make sure they don't have on fancy shoes because they will scrape the toes!

Its a great fun toy that has been consistently used since she first started playing with it. I do believe it will be a great stepping stone to riding a pedal bike and skipping the tricycle or training wheels.

My bike! My bike!

Upgrade the big wheel

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I don't regret starting the kid out on a big wheel, but the Strider is a different beast altogether. My boy is 2 years old and he's going to start bike racing on his Strider next month.

Great for teaching kids how to balance and make the transition to a full-size bike. These are super versatile and can be ridden all over. Skatepark, dirt, street - you name it.

The Best!

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

The idea of this bike is genius! My niece and nephew had their Strider bikes since before they could walk. They figured out how to ride and 2 months ago, at 3 years old they learned to ride a 2 wheel bike with pedals in about 10 minutes. Their Strider bikes held up just fine and did the job they were meant to do.

You may want to invest in some shoes with a good toe as these 2 kids would drag their toes to stop. And don't forget the helmet!

Call me a believer. After 2 1/2 years on a Strider, my 5-year old figured out how to balance and pedal on a big bike in less that 1/2 hour. Her old pink one went to a cousin, and the boy got a new green one. The Strider is fun at the park, at the 'Cross races, and on the trail. It's light, simple, and durable. I've looked at other balance bikes that are more fully-featured, with pneumatic tires, handbrakes, and better headsets, but those things add weight and expense. Many also lack the footrests that are very handy once the kid learns to balance and coast. The ST-4 makes some good improvements over earlier versions. Cartridge bearings in the wheels are smoother, the handlebars and grips are smaller-diameter and gain a pad, the hard saddle is better-sized & more durable, and quick releases and the stem and seatpost make tool-free size adjustments easy. Kids who spend time outside will get lots of use out of a Strider.
