He even patented his now signature move, "The Fire Hydrant" (pictured below), during the STRIDER trick competition! The video below is a great example of STRIDER progression and balance. Did I mention that the video is shot in Sherwood Forest? If you didn't think it could get any cooler than that, watch Ashton's balance skills.

It has been another Amazing year at Strider Sports International! The 2013 STRIDER ST-3 was full of cool new improvements on an already (in our opinion) cool little bike.
