Oskar: All Tuckered Out

Written by
Oskar is a 23 month old from Australia...Tasmania to be exact. As you can tell by his outfit and KTM Strider, his parents are avid motorbikelysts. In case you were wondering motorbikelyst is defined as somebody who rides pedal bikes and motorbikes. Apparently sticking out of the tongue is universal toddler behaviour...According to his Mum, Oskar is a bit cheeky (I think cheeky is British for sassy). [caption id="attachment_1496" align="alignnone" width="477" caption="Oskar is bright eyed, bushy tailed and a bit "cheeky"!"][/caption] The photo below was taken after after riding his Strider (named PeeWee) for four and a half hours at…

Strider Progression: Part 2

Written by
In our second installment of Strider Progression we will take a look at "Extreme Zane"! This is a great example of the next step for most youngsters as they become more confident on their Strider. Zane is not quite two, but has clearly been riding his Strider a lot. In the last video we saw Aiden walking with his butt on the seat. Zane is moving a little faster while occasionally lifting his feet to glide. Its important to remember that as they get more comfortable and have more time in the saddle the comfort level and commitment to balance…

Progression: Part 1

Written by
This week we'll be posting a series of videos showing a progression of Stridering skills. Since this is the first entry naturally we will start with a video of a child's first time on a Strider PREbike! Cut to Aiden on his cool orange Strider! He is 20 months old and has a very stylish flame-laden helmet. He is very smiley and amazingly already trusting his weight to the seat. Aiden is a little wobbly, but you can tell that he is quickly understanding his early balance skills. At the :50 second mark he sees a big kid ride by…

International Strider Shout Out!

Written by
Last week we put a call out on our Facebook page to get photos and videos posted on our wall. The international Strider M.O.B. heard us loud and clear! We want to highlight a few of that crowd today. [caption id="attachment_1119" align="aligncenter" width="453" caption="The first is Emily from the United Kingdom. She got her Strider last Summer and started gettingher sense of balance, but mostly walked with her bum (I think that's what they call it in the U.K.) off the seat. This summer she will be outfitted with her new helmet and there'll be no stopping her!"][/caption] [caption id="attachment_1120"…

Written by
There is nothing more satisfying than seeing kids take their first steps on their new Strider! We know that a lot of kids got a Strider for Christmas and we'd love to see and hear your stories. Click through to our facebook page and share a photo or video on our wall...even if they've been riding for a while. We also have a new review tab and we would love to hear from you on there as well. Below is a great video we found of Violet (Almost 2) on YouTube and her first attempts at what appears will be…
