Balance bikes are the gateway to pedal bikes for kids from 18 months up to 5 years. Kids “walk” themselves along and learn balance, steering and how to coast without needing the strength or coordination to pedal. Once the basic balance and motor skills are second nature, graduating to a pedal bike is easy. Lightweight at less than 7 pounds, Strider bikes have solid EVA tires which never go flat, and adjustable seat and handlebar heights to grow with the rider. This great tool is perhaps the best way to get kids up and biking!
