The Newest In Strider’s Line Of Popular No-Pedal Balance Bikes Sports An Ultra Light, Aluminum Frame For Maximum Performance
Rapid City, SD (September 25, 2013) — Strider Sports Intl., Inc., the world’s premier manufacturer and marketer of children’s no-pedal balance bikes, is bringing lightweight performance to a new level with the new STRIDER ST-PRO. Designed for kids aged 18 months to five years old, the STRIDER ST-PRO will have children cruising on asphalt, grass, and even more demanding obstacles with the strength of an aluminum frame for total control on any terrain.
The STRIDER ST-PRO was designed and built based on the same, simple, lightweight, no-pedal design as the original STRIDER No-Pedal Balance Bike. It is the perfect bike for toddlers to start exploring life on two wheels. The lightweight durability of the aluminum frame makes it a true multi-functional bike for the adventuresome child. And at under 5 pounds, it is the lightest STRIDER available to date. The STRIDER ST-PRO received impressive reactions during its debut this past week at Interbike 2013 in Las Vegas.
The STRIDER ST-PRO offers many of the same features as the STRIDER ST-4 model, but with an emphasis on lightweight performance.
- Simple, ultra-lightweight design (4.9 pounds)
o Perfect for toddlers aged 18 months - 5 years old.
- All-Aluminum Frame, Fork, Handlebars, and Seat Post
o Lightweight and Stylish look from a true aluminum frame
- Patented STRIDER LAUNCHPAD Footrests
o Uniquely integrated into frame and positioned for advanced riding skills.
- Puncture-Proof EVA Polymer Tires
o Eliminate flats at approximately half the weight of an inflatable tire.
- Adjustable Aluminum Seat & Handlebar
o Keeps bike properly fit for a growing child – all the way from 18 months to 5 years!
- Stylish Number Plate
“The STRIDER ST-PRO is a natural progression for Strider Bikes,” said Ryan McFarland, Founder and President of Strider Bikes. “The aluminum frame is the perfect way for STRIDER Riders to take the next step with their riding, whether it’s onto the playground or the dirt track. We can’t wait to see toddlers enjoying life on two wheels in more ways than ever before!”
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.
