Product Description

Red Strider 12 Sport

Ryan McFarland, Founder… “The 12 Sport model offers every feature a child (or parent) could want. It is the perfect balance of performance, options, and value, featuring more than 8 years of design evolution and manufacturing improvements.”

This model is similar to the previous ST-4, but includes updated graphics and an extra-long seat post.

 If your toddler can walk, a STRIDER 12 Sport will get your toddler cruising over dirt, grass, and pavement with ease. Designed to be steady, stable, and safe, the STRIDER 12 Sport bike is perfect for children from 18 months to 5 years old.

Weighing only 6.7 pounds, the STRIDER 12 Sport Balance Bike is designed to be super light for ease of handling by young riders.  The bike includes patented frame-integrated footrests for advanced rider development, and the handlebar and saddle height are adjustable for growing children.

Healthy kids develop essential motor skills early in life.  Pediatricians agree that learning balance, coordination with exercise jump-starts a child’s growth and development.

The Strider 12 Sport teaches your child balance, coordination and develops glittering confidence.  Trikes and bikes with training wheels don’t.  Traditional bicycles place too much of the focus on learning to pedal — skimping on developing your child’s motor skills.




Unique 12.7mm steel handlebar is 43% smaller than standard to allow better control with tiny hands. Custom logo mini-grips are soft urethane with protective ends. Machined-aluminum quick release allows “No Tools” height adjustment from 46-56cm (18-22”).


Strider-exclusive, ultralight one-piece wheels sport a raised-letter, five-spoke design with 10 bearing support gussets for maximum strength at the lightest weight possible.

Top-quality sealed cartridge bearings roll smooth and never need adjustment.


EVA polymer (industrial foam) tires are super light and durable yet offer a smooth ride. Best of all, they never need air and will never go flat.


The durable, all-weather mini-saddle is designed specifically for beginning riders and their tiny hips. Smaller, narrower, and lighter than a typical saddle, this seat allows for proper riding position and posture. ** The Sport model also includes a padded XL saddle and long seatpost to fit kids over 3 years and allows seat height adjustments up to 48cm (19”).

Bar and seat clamps

Machined aluminum quick release allows “No Tools” saddle height adjustment from 28-41cm (11-16”) for the perfect fit for your child.


Unique, frame-integrated footrests are properly positioned directly below the saddle for natural bike balance. This position also fosters the advanced ability to stand while gliding as well as pumping and jumping the bike.

Brake mount

Strider-exclusive rear brake mount allows the addition of a foot-operated brake once the kids are proficiently gliding with feet on the footrests. Brake sold separately.

    My 2 year old son was absolutely chuffed to find that Santa left him a sparkling red Strider bike. He loves his new bike and is flying around on it.I got him a balance bike when he was 17 months old. His first was a different brand, which he also loved, but seemed less like a bike and resembled a scooter. He loves the Strider as it looks like a ‘big boy bike’ and more like his older sister’s one! The concept of the balance bike is an amazing one. I work with children, as well as being a mother of two, and believe that you cannot emphasise enough the value of providing our children with opportunities from a very young age to develop their gross motor coordination and balance. I highly recommend the Strider bike. It is really lightweight and I especially love the foam filled tyres.I have been really happy with the excellent customer service which I have received from and Helen has been very obliging and helpful.
