Rapid City, SD (August 17, 2016) — Strider Sports Int’l., Inc., the world’s premier manufacturer and marketer of children’s no-pedal balance bikes, has identified an even younger group of potential bike riders – toddlers, ages 12-24 months, just learning to stand and walk.
According to Strider Founder and Chief Enthusiast, Ryan McFarland, “a baby who rocks becomes a toddler who rides! We all know babies enjoy rocking horses when they are small. The problem is that no child ever gets to unhitch the horse and ride off into the sunset. With the Strider Bike and Rocking Base system, babies as young as 12 months can safely rock and play on the bike when first introduced, then graduate to the true freedom that the Strider bike offers as they ride away some months later.”
This new product easily attaches to any 12-inch Strider Balance Bike and allows the youngest member of the family to play with, rock, and ride a Strider Bike on a safe and stable base until they are old enough to ride the bike – which is typically around 18 months. The Rocking Base is made of all-weather, durable black plastic and includes all tools necessary to attach to a bike. Maximum rider weight for the rocking base is 40 pounds. The Strider Rocking Base is available for order immediately, retails for $79.99, and does not include a Strider bike.
Strider Sports International, the leading manufacturer of no-pedal balance bikes, has sold over one million Strider Bikes since 2007. The Strider Bike line-up includes the 12” model for younger riders and the 16” and 20” models, developed in the last couple of years for older children and adults with balance and coordination challenges.
All Strider Bikes and accessories are available through the Strider website and at local Authorized Strider Dealers. To order your Strider Rocking Base, visit https://www.striderbikes.com/launch/rocker.
