Officially Licensed Harley-Davidson® STRIDER No-Pedal Balance Bikes Perfect For Teaching Toddlers How To Ride
Rapid City, SD (September 23, 2013) — Strider Sports International is pleased to announce that the ST-4 No-Pedal Balance Bike for toddlers is the newest Harley-Davidson officially licensed product. Building on the worldwide success of the original STRIDER bike (over 600,000 sold to date), the new Special Edition Harley-Davidson® STRIDER gives toddlers a bike with the classic look of the most famous motorcycle brand in the world.
Strider No-Pedal balance bikes are the fastest, safest, and easiest way to teach toddlers as young as 18 months to discover the world on two wheels. By using a Harley-Davidson® STRIDER bike, young riders from 18 months to five years get to experience the fun and freedom of riding a bike without relying on restrictive training wheels or tricycles. The new Harley-Davidson® model bike will be dealer-exclusive for six months before being offered through additional channels.
The Harley-Davidson STRIDER bike is a must-have developmental tool for children aged 18 months to five years. It weighs just 6.7 pounds, is easy to control, and features an adjustable seat and handlebars to accommodate a growing child. The newest STRIDER will be available worldwide by Thanksgiving and will come in two colors: black or pink.
“The Harley-Davidson STRIDER is truly a special bike,” says Ryan McFarland, Founder of Strider Bikes. “The iconic Harley-Davidson® brand evokes an image of feeling the wind in your face on the open road. We know the trademark Harley-Davidson® orange and black STRIDER bike will help children develop that same feeling of freedom and fun.”
A recent study conducted over a four-week period with three to five-year-old children concluded that participants benefited from using a STRIDER bike by improving their balance and functional fitness, while likely reducing future injuries during their daily routines.
