The Strider 14x Designed to create confidence


The 14x Was Designed for a Proper Fit

Specifically designed for a child’s proportions, shorter crank arms make pedaling easier. We also designed the 14x to fit better between the rider’s hips. Its narrow design gives your child an easier and more powerful pedal stroke. A comfortable bike promotes instant success.

The 14x Grows with Your Child

The 14x is designed to grow with your child, which means it always fits. The 14x comes with a fully adjustable seat and handlebars, and it seamlessly transitions from a balance bike to a pedal bike. This easy transition builds confidence, provides instant success, and means a better value for parents.


The 14x Is the Best Way to Teach Riding

The low center of gravity gives your child complete control. It’s low enough that it teaches children how to stride and pedal effectively, while allowing them to put their feet on the ground whenever he/she wants. The narrow pedals make striding to gain momentum and pedaling with confidence a breeze.

Strider 14x Sport is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 14.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Incredible! My daughter is 4 and she was great at riding the smaller strider bike. It had gotten too small. When this one arrived she rode it without pedals for one day. Then she asked for the pedals, and she was able to ride the bike within minutes. No scary push from the parents. She just strided as usual, picked her feet up to glide, placed them on the pedals and was off like a rocket! She has never been happier! I absolutely recommend this bike!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great transition bike- needs hand brakes We bought this for my son who could pedal already but missed striding around (it’s fun!). I like the low profile pedals so he can put his feet down and run when he wants, and i like that they’re removable. I really wish it had a freewheel option and a hand brake though. Coaster brakes are very frustrating when learning to pedal, and hand brakes are much safer for stopping. I’d pay extra for those options. That being said my son loves to zip around on it! He’s an average sized 5.5 year old but seems like he’ll size out of it soon though. The description says ages 4-7 but that’s pretty generous in my opinion.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect Fit! After my son outgrew his first Strider he was bummed because he loved that bike. So when we gave him the 14x Sport he was thrilled! He loves it! We haven't tried adding the peddles yet. But we are excited to do so. The rubber wheels make a big difference in comfort and speed. And my son comments on how much more comfortable the padded seat is every time he rides.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Our 3 year old Loves his pedal bike! This is our son’s second Strider bike (first one was the 12X Classic) and he loves how soft the seat is, how smooth it rides due to the tires and how much faster he can go quicker. It is bigger and heavier and literally half his weight with the pedals but thanks to mastering his balancing skills with the 12X he is able to ride the 14X with the pedals no problem! It’s comfortable and beautiful and best part he will be able to ride it for many years since he is only 3.5 and on the smaller size.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great quality. Non-intimidating to my son! I have had the bike for a couple of weeks and my 3 year old has ridden it approximately 3 times. That is longer than he has been on any bike in the past. So far, he just walks around with it and is learning how to steer and balance, just like what Strider said could happen. I am very pleased and am confident with more practice he will learn how to pick his feet up.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wow...Just Wow! This an well build balance bike. It will definitely stand for the abuse my son is going to give it. He loves it and the fact that it comes with a pedal kit for when he is ready is awesome. It was very easy to put together and probably took less than 15 minutes with adjusting for proper fit.
