Instant Success. That’s what we wanted kids to experience on the Strider 14x Sport. We’ve put together all the right ingredients to give your tyke a taste of confidence to successfully shift from riding a balance bike to pedaling like a pro as quickly as possible. Why? Because the success your child experiences when they ride a Strider is going to stay with them throughout their life.

Kids from all over the world are learning how to ride on the 14x Sport. The confidence and freedom that comes with learning how to pedal a bike rockets them into a level of the awesomesphere they didn’t even know existed. Plus, parents get to see their child grow and develop right before their eyes. Pretty cool, right? The 14x starts off as a balance bike, which helps kiddos who either haven’t been on a bike before or are veteran Strider riders gain confidence and balancing ability on a bigger bike. Once your little renegade is ready to pedal, just attach the Easy-Ride Pedal Kit and VOILÁ! You have the most adjustable, most amazing pedal bike in the world.

It gets better. If your mini-me is sprouting up faster than a weed amped up on fertilizer, the adjustable seat and handlebars mean the 14x Sport will continue to fit them. Converting the 14x from balance bike to pedal bike is super quick and easy (we even give you the wrench to screw in the only bolt). Now, your kid is pedaling around the neighborhood thinking you’re a superhero for getting them a 14x. They’re realizing their skills and freedom with a newfound confidence and thirst for adventure. And now, your neighbors all have to step up their parenting game.

Yeah, we’d call that a parenting win.

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 37.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from We love it!!! We first bought the Strider sport when our son was 18 months old. For his 4th birthday we bought the 14x. We put the pedals on and he started gliding and then just took off!! He loves it! It really makes him feel independent.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from It WORKS!!! We bought one for my grandson when he was about 2&1/2. Not only did he enjoy "riding a bike like the big kids", but literally took him less than a minute to transition to riding a bike with peddles! I would not have believed it. Best investment of his childhood with an incredible payoff (in terms of $ - obviously we are invested in him in much bigger ways regarding his character and education.) Something "too good to be true" that actually works the way they say! PS He is 7 now and has graduated to a motor cycle.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from This is a nice bike to learn how to balance but the seat is VERY hard. My son complains every time he rides it that his butt hurts. I had to buy a padded seat cover to try to help with that issue. I find this to be a large issue because he still Stops his rides short because he is in pain.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very Impressed! The bike itself is everything we had hoped and more. It was such a natural and quick transition from her little Strider to the big-kid bike with wheels. The new weight may have been the biggest adjustment for our little one but it didn't slow her down for very long. Thank you for a bike actually made for kids!! The order was so easy and it arrived quickly enough to keep even an excited girl very happy. Thank you!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from great company and great product I bought the 14x sport for my 3yo, and when it arrived several components were missing, likely from poor handling during shipment. However, Strider sent all of the replacement parts speedily to remedy the situation. Our son loves his bike and I am so happy I shopped with Strider.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing conversion (both in the bike and my son) Within 6 weeks my previously timid 4 year old was striding/gliding fast enough I had to run to keep up and peddling after 2 more weeks. Over the same time frame his balance improved off the bike.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great first peddle bike! My daughter picked up her 14x yesterday and started riding like she’s been riding forever! She’s only 2 1/2 years old (30 months)! Great first peddle bike!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome bike!! The bike fit to my son (Harith) and much better based on his height..less tired compared to 12" pedal he rode previously..and yup he started with strider 12" balance bike (classic model red color)..

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Strider Pedal Bike My 4 year old daughter started pedaling on her first try, it was amazing. It was definitely the best father daughter moment that I can remember!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best decision for bike! We debated on what bike to get for our 3 1/2 yr old twins. A friend owns and highly recommended Strider balance bikes. Because we have to buy everything X2!, I hesitated because of the cost. After researching, we decided that this was the wisest choice that would last the boys many years of riding. The boys caught on immediately! We are floored at how fast they are advancing! They are having a ball! If you are considering investing one of these bikes, don’t look any further! You will be pleased you did!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Investment My daughter turned 6 in May. We tried getting her started on a tricycle before we knew anything about a Strider bike. She had a difficult time, the pedals were cumbersome. We bought the Strider 14X for her birthday. She started gliding after the first day, within three weeks she had the hang of it. I was hesitant to put the pedals on, the manual said do not put the pedals on too early. I put them on and she immediately was able to pedal without any assistance. She rode a short distance and would accidentally hit the brake. The first day was good but not smooth. It’s now been a week with pedals and she is able to ride around the neighborhood following me on my bike.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 3 year old is riding I am truly impressed with the strider bike. My three-year-old has already learned how to ride her bike with pedals (the 18 month old isn’t too far behind!). It is a little big and she has to ride with the handlebars turned backwards. My only complaint is that I promised her she could get a motorcycle when she could ride her bike so now I have to budget for that!! Seriously impressed with Strider! Thank you
Date published: 2018-06-13
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for kids!! We bought our son a balance strider when he was 2 and then when he was 3 we got him the 14x strider with pedals! He rides it like a champ and his balance is amazing after using the one with no pedals! What a great step of confidence for a young kid! Love it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great in between push bike / bike Our 4 years old graduated from the strider to the strider 14 x recently. He wasn't quite ready for a larger and heavy pedal bike, but he was outgrowing the regular strider. He is more stable at higher speeds, appreciates the pneumatic tires ( the foam tires were wearing down) and now can really glide w this! We have tried out the pedals and removed then (easy enough to do). Now it's just a question of when he works the confidence up to commit to the pedal feature. In hindsight, we might have been well served to have a trike too to practice pedaling. Also, may add a hand brake as his shoes are wearing down from stopping in his faster strider!

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 Exceeded all expectatioms I bought this for my 4 yr old son. It was easy to put togeyger. He loves it and picked it up right away. Haven't coverted to pedal bike yet but can't wait to try it.
Date published: 2018-03-14
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.
Date published: 2018-01-12
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.
Date published: 2018-01-05
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.
Date published: 2018-01-02
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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome bike! We've gotten this bike for our 2.5 years old son. He absolutely love it. He had the 12" Yamaha Strider for a year now and we thought it's time for the next step. The 14X Sport bike feels very well built. It has longer wheelbase and larger wheel therefore provides much better handling. The lowest setting on of seat is pretty low so it's perfect fit. The pedals conversion is very easy to install. Once your little one have enough confidence of striding around put the pedals on and they will be pedaling in no time without the need of spare wheels. Another amazing bike that Strider has made.
Date published: 2017-12-19
Rated 5 out of 5 by from She Loves It! We bought the Strider 14x for our granddaughter for her 3rd birthday. She is tall, so we thought the 14 would serve her longer. She loves her bike. She's a bit cautious about sitting on the seat, but she straddles it and moves along just fine. We are thankful to be able to start her off on...the right...well, both feet!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love at first Stride What more is there to say? We got this bike for our three year old daughter a couple of weeks ago. The excitement was through the roof before we even opened it. After the quick assembly (that she even helped with) we were out the door. She immediately felt comfortable on the bike which effortlessly seems to take her wherever she pointed it. The handling, balance and traction the tires provide are so spot on. After taking her on a few rides, she was already asking to change out to pedal mode! I think a couple more rides and she may already be able to do it. This bike is a great tool in helping the development of pedal riding, and leaves our little girl grinning from ear to ear every step of the way!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Next level awesome We have an active family with four kids and our youngest (3 years old) is always wanting to keep up with his big brothers, strider has been awesome for this! He tags along and competes in all their bmx races, chases them down the street, on trail rides and literally all over town. The 14x is amazing and has taken his striding to a whole new level! He is able to glide and balance and loves the cool look. He’s had his 14x for about a month (we had the Honda strider edition 12 before) and is just about ready to start pedaling. I love that you can put the pedals on and off easily. I love that just because he’s ready to start pedaling we don’t have to leave strider behind! Thank you strider for another great product!
