Strider offering balance bike that converts to pedal bike

Published October 16, 2017

RAPID CITY, S.D. (BRAIN) — Strider is launching a new balance bike that quickly converts to a pedal bike when a child is ready.

The Strider 14x Sport comes with the Easy-Ride Pedal Kit, which the company said can be installed in five minutes with one bolt. 

"We've established that training wheels and tricycles are obsolete," said Ryan McFarland, the CEO and founder of Strider Sports. "Balance bikes are the best way to train our children how to ride. We've brought the entire learn-to-ride process together into one amazing bike. The Strider 14x Sport Balance Bike with the Easy-Ride Pedal Kit is the only bike you will need to help your child ride with instant success. The 14x is proof that a child, no matter their experience level, can ride a bike in no time and achieve this life-changing milestone. Tested by eager 3- to 7-year-old riders, their input helped us refine it into the best bike possible for a child."

The 14x has fully adjustable seat and handlebars so it can fit kids age 3-7. It also has shorter crank arms and a narrower q-factor to fit kids legs and hip sizes.

It's available in the Continental U.S. now in either Fantastic Green or Awesome Blue from Strider Sports. It comes with the Learn to Ride – Stride Guide and Learn to Ride – Pedal Guide. It retails for $209.99.
