Advantages of a Striderô PREbike
Your child can learn to ride a bike sooner and safer with a Striderô.
Designed for children, ages 1 - 5, the Striderô running bike holds several advantages over ordinary beginnerís bikes. The Striderô will:
Give your child a head start.
Healthy kids develop essential motor skills early in life. Pediatricians agree that learning balance, coordination with exercise jump-starts a childís growth and development.
Enter the Striderô PREbike.
The Striderô teaches your child balance, coordination and develops confidence and skill. Trikes and bikes with training wheels donít. Traditional bicycles place too much of the focus on learning to pedal -- skimping on developing your childís motor skills. And tricycles are heavy, clunky and difficult for kids to control.
Bike riding becomes a breeze when you teach your child balance and coordination before pedaling. The Striderô takes pedaling out of the mix so that kids can concentrate solely on learning balance, which takes more practice. Pedaling is a secondary skill that kids can easily learn within a few short minutes.
Our first test rider -- after riding a Striderô prototype for only six months -- was riding a two-wheel pedal bike without training wheels at age three. (Still, for pure, simple fun, he continually reverts to and spends much of his playtime on his Striderô.)
Many parents tell us that the Striderô has given their child a safe, speedy and smooth transition into a pedal bike. And your child can share this same experience too.
Provide pure fun, right out of the box.
If your child can walk... your child can ride a Striderô.
Even tiny little children, before the age of two, are drawn to the Striderô. At first, kids will grab the handle bars, straddle the bike and walk without ever sitting down on the seat. And theyíre completely stable: Two wheels, front and back. Feet firmly on the ground. Hands bracing the handle bars.
Plastic push toys, scooters, tricycles and training wheels can't do this.
And unlike other bikes that sit in the garage, gathering dust while your child waits to grow into them, the Striderô running bike will get plenty of use from day one. Hereís an added benefit for parents: Your child will become significantly more mobile. The Striderô opens up a whole world for your child to ride on. Take your childís Striderô to an outdoor gathering, a nearby park, or anywhere else you walk. With a Striderô, thereís no more dawdling little oneís. Your child will easily be able to keep pace.
Give your child a safer way to learn bike riding.
Tricycles tip over, scrape ankles, and are difficult to pedal. Bicycles with training wheels are tall, heavy, unstable and downright scary for young riders. Both have the potential to cause painful injuries and fear.
Not true with the Striderô.
The Striderô PREbike is free from any cables, chains, sprockets, pedals or protrusions that can harm your child.
And the Striderô is steady, stable and safe. 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.
The Striderís lightweight design and low center of gravity make it easy to maneuver and control, giving your child a safe and secure feeling. And the bikeís adjustable seat height starts at 11 inches from the ground, accommodating the shortest of legs.
Control is further enhanced with a low and flat handlebar design. Kids can now reach forward rather than up, which gives them better leverage and maneuverability. And as the your child becomes more confident, the Striderís integrated foot rests provide a place for both feet while coasting along.
The bottom line: The Striderô running bike gives your child a safer and smarter bike riding experience.
Eliminate costly repairs and delays with a durable, low-maintenance design.
The Striderís straightforward design means there are no delays when "hitting the road". No pedals to tighten. No chains to lube. No tire pressure to maintain.
The Striderô is outfitted with puncture-proof, EVA polymer tires. These tires eliminate flats and are approximately half the weight of an inflatable tire. (A lighter bike equals greater control.)
Assembly takes approximately five minutes for even the most mechanically-challenged among us. Thatís right. Just insert, adjust and tighten the seat, wheels and handle bars, and your child will be zipping along on the Strider!
Get a bigger bang for your buck.
The Striderô PREbike is the one and only bike your child needs until making the transition to a two-wheel pedal bike without training wheels. No more expensive guess-work and experimentation with plastic push toys, scooters, tricycles or training wheels.
Designed for children, ages 1 - 5, the Striderô running bike is lightweight and features an adjustable seat and handlebars to accommodate your growing child. And we also offer an optional seat with a longer post for taller children.
And get this: Even after the transition into a two-wheel pedal bike, you still might find your child spending much of his playtime on a Striderô
Now that's a bigger bang for your buck.
