The Strider 12 Sport is the most popular Strider model. Durability and a wide range of features make the Sport perfect for itty-bitty riders starting out at 18 months to growing 4-5 year olds perfecting their balance and riding skills! With a decade of design evolution and manufacturing improvements, the 12 Sport is the best performance and value.

A step up from the entry level Classic model, the Sport includes additional features for both parents and children! The patented steel frame and puncture-proof tires require no maintenance. Seat and handlebar height are quickly adjustable without the use of tools. The popular Sport model has improved ergonomics, with built-in footrests and a padded seat sized perfectly for toddler hips. Mini-grips tailored for small hands improve control and a cushy handlebar pad looks great while improving safety. Available in an assortment of vibrant colors, the Strider 12 Sport quality and range will make your child’s Strider Balance Bike experience one-of-a-kind from beginning to end!

Strider Bikes are designed with a low seat height so children can start riding when they are 18 months old. The Sport features an extra-long seat adjustment range so it will grow with your child even longer, up to 5 years old!

Handlebar

Unique 12.7mm steel handlebar is 43% smaller than standard to allow better control with tiny hands. Custom logo mini-grips are soft urethane with protective ends. Machined-aluminum quick release allows “No Tools” height adjustment.

Wheels & Tires

Ultralight wheels have a five-spoke design with 10 bearing support gussets for maximum strength at the lightest weight possible. Cartridge bearings roll smoothly and never need adjustment.

EVA polymer tires are super light, durable, and have a smooth ride while never needing air or going flat.

Seat

Smaller, narrower, and lighter than a typical saddle, our padded seat allows for proper riding position and posture. The Sport model features a long seat adjustment range for growing children, allowing seat-height adjustments up to 48 cm (19 in).

Bar and seat clamps

Machined aluminum quick release allows “No Tools” saddle height adjustment for the perfect fit for your child.

Footrest

Unique, frame-integrated footrests are properly positioned directly below the saddle for natural bike balance. This position also fosters the advanced ability to stand while gliding as well as pumping and jumping the bike.

Brake mount

Strider-exclusive rear brake mount allows the addition of a foot-operated brake once the kids are proficiently gliding with feet on the footrests. Brake sold separately.

STRIDER Sport is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 253.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing to work with for adaptations! I can't say enough about Strider!!! We have 2 little guys - 3 and 1. The oldest has a limb difference. I emailed their customer service, and heard back from Ann immediately. By the end of the following week, we had a bike arrive at our front door, complete with a modified handlebar. In playing with the adapter, he surprised us and there were a couple things we had to change. Ann reached out to check on us, I mentioned our issues/changes with the adapter. Two emails later, we have another adapter on the way. I'm absolutely blown away by the dedication and determination of Ann and Charlie to get my child rolling. Wow! I've spent so much of these first 3 years advocating for him to have the same experiences as other 3 year olds. This is the first time I feel like I have teammates on the journey!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My 2year olds most prized possession My son received his Yamaha strider for Christmas when he was 10 months old. By the time he turned two he was riding with his feet up and has loads of self confidence and control. He also has the snow ski's for his wheels and enjoyed them this past winter. Riding comes second nature to him and I feel all kids should own a strider!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Every Child Should Have A Strider!!! My two grandchildren ate, drank and slept their Strider bikes!!! Jamie started on his at 13 months and went straight to his pedal bike at 3 years old without training wheels! He couldn't get enough of his bike!!! Our Charlie Girl took to hers with just as much joy!!! We became a dealer so we could give them away to children to spread the love of biking...best bike ever!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome bike! We got this bike when my grandson was 1 1/2. He is now 3 1/2 and prefers this bike over his pedal bike. He has better coordination and balance than any 3 year old. He now races on a bmx track and does outstanding! He also rides a PW 50 and a TTR 50. His Dad rides on the back, but he does all the steering and gas. This bike has taught him to balance and love to ride. He absolutely loves this bike and takes it every where with him! In this picture he has on his Strider jeans. The pads in them are a bonus that make him feel like he is in riding gear like his Dad.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Well designed bike! My 20 month old son immediately took to the Strider Sport the second I unboxed it. He loved helping me put it together and couldn't wait to throw his leg over it and try it. Within days he was scooting around our house with ease. I am very happy I purchased the Strider Sport.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy play for great grand-ma Our little guy turned two. What fun just walking around the block. The Strider stays at my house so he has only used it 3 times but already knows how to steer and balance on seat just walking.
