Rapid City, SD (November 2, 2016) — Strider Sports International, Inc., the world’s premier manufacturer and marketer of children’s no-pedal balance bikes, will be exhibiting at the EICMA Motorcycle Show November 8-13, 2016, at the Milan Convention Center, Milan, Italy. Stop by Hall 06 - Stand L35 to learn how toddlers as young as 18 months are quickly and safely learning to ride on two wheels. Company founder, Ryan McFarland, will be on-site to share his story about how the Strider Bike has quickly become the world’s leading balance bike.

Strider will be debuting its newest products, the Strider® Rocking Base and the Realtree® Strider 12” Custom Balance Bike.

The Realtree Strider Bike is customized with the official Realtree (camo) graphics on a black Strider 12 Classic model.

The company also recently announced the license for sales of the Honda Strider 12 Custom Balance Bikes has been expanded worldwide. The other officially-licensed, custom models that will be on display in the Strider booth include the Harley-Davidson®, and Suzuki Strider Bikes. There is a perfect Strider Bike for every toddler! Distribution and race event sponsorship opportunities are available.

By using a Strider Bike, young riders from 18 months to 5 years get to experience the fun and freedom of riding a bike without relying on restrictive training wheels or tricycles. A university study concluded that participants quickly improved their balancing skills by using a Strider Bike.
