Strider Snow Skis Are Snow Toys That Keep Kids Active During Winter

We usually associate riding bikes with sunny skies and warm weather.  For most of us, storing our bike in the garage until that first snow thaw is a common practice.  After all, riding a bike in sub-zero temperatures isn't something that many of us are itching to do.  However, not all winter temperatures hit that sub-zero mark, and not all bikes need to be stored for the winter.  In fact, Strider Balance Bikes make an excellent snow toy for children.

When we developed the Strider Snow Skis, we wanted to create an accessory that would keep kids on their bikes throughout the winter.  At Strider Bikes, we’re completely focused on the rider’s progression as the child gets comfortable with their bike.  We created the Strider Snow Skis because we didn’t want children to get comfortable with their bike, only to have to put it away once the snow starts to fall.  Strider Snow Skis are our most popular accessory and turn any Strider 12 Pro, Classic, or Sport into a totally awesome ski bike for your child.

It’s difficult enough for adults to stay active during the winter, let alone trying to find winter activities for a child or toddler.  Between cold temperatures and snow piled up so high it makes going anywhere difficult, the Strider Snow Skis are the perfect option for a winter toy that keeps children on their bike and learning to balance but also gets them outside and active.  By keeping them familiar with their Strider Bike, these skis help facilitate the Strider progression process between rider and bike.

Strider Snow Skis are the perfect tool to keep training your little one to learn how to balance because they rely on the same concepts as learning to ride a Strider without snow. To control speed, a skier has to curve their descent. They do this by traveling at an angle, carving into the mountain slowing down slightly, and changing the direction of their descent.  Not only does the Strider Ski Set help children continue to learn how to balance, it also helps children learn more about leaning into turns to help control steering.

Strider Snow Skis

 

The snow skis work great on the local sledding hill and take sledding with the neighborhood kids to a whole new level.  There are also many ski lodges that allow Strider Bikes with skis onto the bunny/children’s slopes.  Getting kids out and active during the winter helps teach them that they can be active no matter what season it is.  Strider Snow Skis help children to enjoy the snow piles in a way that they never could: on two wheels.

There’s no reason to think that a little snow means the Strider has to go away for the winter.  In fact, thanks to its superior design and engineering, taking it out into the snow won’t hurt it one bit.  Add the Strider Snow Ski attachment, and you’ve got a snow toy for your child that provides a great way for them to continue bonding with their Strider and progressing through the fundamentals of balance.
