The Strider 12 Classic

RAPID CITY, S.D. (BRAIN) — Strider Sports Intl., Inc., has expanded its line of 12-inch wheel balance bikes, which are intended for 18 month old to 5-year-old children.

The 12-inch bike is now available in three models at three price points. All three have ultra light molded wheels, sealed cartridge wheel bearings, flat-free EVA polymer tires, and integrated footrests. 

The three models are the 12 Classic ($89), 12 Sport ($119) and 12 Pro ($169). 

"The Strider 12 Classic model is a return to our roots ... a super simple design featuring the core elements that make Strider the number one balance bike brand in the world, yet less expensive without some of our options of custom grips and saddles offered on our other models," said Ryan McFarland, CEO of Strider Sports International.

"The 12 Sport model offers every feature a child (or parent) could want with custom grips, padded saddle, handlebar pad, and quick release clamps (no-tool adjustment). It is the perfect balance of performance, options, and value. More than eight years of design evolution and manufacturing improvements all packaged into one model.

"The 12 Pro utilizes all the features of the Sport model, but in an all -aluminum design, making it the lightest Strider in the world. Fully featured and ultra light weight make this the top performing balance bike for the little superstar riders and racers."
