STRIDER Rolls Into Dealer Expo 2013!

Industry-Leading Strider Balance Bikes Roll Into Dealer Expo 2013 
Scientifically Proven Strider No-Pedal Bikes Praised By Retailers and Parents
Rapid City, SD (January 30, 2013) — Strider Sports International, the world’s premier manufacturer and marketer of children’s no-pedal balance bikes for toddlers learning to ride, will be exhibiting at 2013 Dealernews International Powersports Dealer Expo. Strider will be set up at booth 2821 at the Indiana Convention Center, February 15-17, 2013. Stop by and see how toddlers around the world are quickly learning to ride on two wheels! Press samples and high res images are available upon request.
A Strider Adventure Zone — where young children from just 18 months up to 5 years old can test ride a demo STRIDER bike for free — will also be held next door to the Dealer Expo as part of the Progressive International Motorcycle Show. The two events partnered this year to create the largest ever motorcycle show in Indianapolis. Dealers who visit the Strider booth can also attend the IMS Show on Sunday and enjoy the Adventure Zone for FREE.
A recent study on balance bikes and toddlers conducted at the University of South Dakota indicated that the STRIDER No-Pedal Balance Bikes showed significant improvements in children’s Limit of Stability scores (the ability to balance and lean without falling).
Strider is all new for 2013! The STRIDER ST-4 features many new components to accommodate the needs of toddlers. The STRIDER ST-4 retains Strider’s unique, patented Launch Pad Footrest and performance geometry. From enhanced mechanical parts like sealed cartridge bearings to more comfortable handlebar grips and improved tire tread, the new STRIDER ST-4 addresses every aspect of a child’s riding experience. 
The maintenance-free EVA polymer tires help the bike weigh in at just 6.7 pounds, making it easy for toddlers to maneuver on whatever adventures their legs take them. The 2013 STRIDER ST-4 comes standard with Quick Clamps for the handlebar and seatpost. Parents everywhere smile when they see “NO TOOLS ARE NEEDED FOR ASSEMBLY OR ADJUSTMENT”.
