Introducing the
Strider™ PREbike

     

Say goodbye to training wheels! The Strider™ PREbike is a two wheeler that teaches kids age 1-5 years how to balance and steer without the use of training wheels. The low seat height, at just 11 inches, makes it possible for any size rider to have their feet flat on the ground. This gives the rider complete control, and builds their self-confidence.

   

For the more advanced rider, the Strider™ offers frame-integrated Launch Pad™ footrests ergonomically located below the saddle. Launch your child's skills to the next level: gliding with feet up, riding while standing up, jumping and bunnyhopping. The optional foot brake will add even more fun to your child's Strider™ experience... can you say skidmark?

Weighing less than 7 lbs, the Strider™ is easy for your child to handle in any situation. The EVA polymer tires require little maintenance, and allows for off road adventure through forests, over dirt hills and through mud puddles. This truly is "The best toy you'll ever buy for your youngster".

 
 


Strider Science

The original motivation for the creation of the Strider™ PREbike was to provide a safe and easy transition to a pedal bicycle. Obviously, ease of control had to be critical for our targeted rider group of 1-5 year olds. The first requirement was a LOW seat height and center of gravity so our tiny riders felt safe; our seat height starts as low as 11 inches, allowing even the shortest of legs to reach the ground. Control is also aided by the low, straight handlebar design which allows the small rider to reach forward rather than up. That same handlebar design helps the child lift the bike over obstacles because he or she can pull up on the bars with better leverage. As the young rider becomes more accomplished, the foot rest provides a place for both feet as the child coasts down hills. (Placing both feet on the optional brake lever also provides an opportunity at the bottom of the hill to create a great skid mark, which our young test riders really love!) And finally, our low seat, low handlebars, and low center of gravity all combine to build confidence in riders. They soon learn to sit and push hard with their feet to attain speed and at the same time lengthen their stride (Hence, the name of our vehicle, the Strider™). At speed, a small child's stride will go from approximately 2 feet when running on foot to 6 feet or more when running on a Strider™. This means they're riding 3 times faster than they can run.

Tricycles tip over, scrape ankles, and have terrible pedal leverage ratios. Training-wheeled bicycles are tall, heavy, tippy, complex, and downright scary for really young riders. Both have great potential for injury. Not true with the Strider™. Due to the low center of gravity, low seat height, low handlebars, and light weight, the rider has much better control. The absence of pedals, sprockets, chain, and cables further reduce the likelihood of injury. The Strider™ is the 'right tool for the job'
