We believe in raising kids who excel at life and always have the courage to tackle whatever comes next. That’s why the Strider 12 Sport Balance Bike has become the ultimate vehicle for kids as young as 18 months. Your tiny-legged toddler is ready to ride, thirsting for freedom, and craving adventure. Give your child the bike that set the world on fire and encourages them to experience the thrill of riding while developing confidence and coordination…before they’re even out of diapers.
The Sport is our best all-around model. Mini-grips mean little mitts can easily take control and make this lean, mean, durable bike the biggest bang for your buck, which is probably why it’s our best seller. The 12 Sport is the perfect bike to take your child from baby steps to big strides, all without busting out a toolkit (tool-free seat and handlebar adjustment AND tires that never go flat). The Strider Sport has a seat height range from 28-48 cm (11-19 in.), which means it fits a huge range of inseam lengths (30-51 cm [12-20 in.]). The cushy, padded seat and an additional extra-long seatpost means your child will get years out of their Strider.
Boring specs aside, this is the bike that introduces kids to the freedom, power, and responsibility of riding. Now they have the power to keep up with you when you’re out and about. No more strollers. No more of those ridiculous kid leashes. Your child can experience the truly amazing freedom that comes with being a part of the Strider family.
In our quest to turn kids into awesome human beings, we even made our Official Strider Learn-To-Ride Guide available online to anyone who registers their child’s Strider. Become your kiddo’s biggest cheerleader with the best bike out there.

HOW TO MEASURE YOUR CHILD’S STAND-OVER HEIGHT?
WHAT SIZE BIKE SHOULD I GET MY CHILD?
Easy, the best size bike for your kiddo is the bike that fits them from day one. The best way to do that is to measure their inseam.
YEAH, BUT WHAT ABOUT THEIR AGE?
Age is more like…an approximate fit. Inseam is an exact fit, trust us.
OK, GOT IT. WHAT’S AN INSEAM?
Good question. Inseam is the distance between the ground and the crotch (just in case you’re interested in measuring your inseam for your next Halloween costume).
OK, SO WHY IS THIS INSEAM BABBLE SO IMPORTANT?
We’re all different heights and shapes, even when we’re the same age. This is especially true with kids. Because they grow like crazy, they all have different heights and leg lengths. By measuring inseam, you’re making sure that your child’s bike has the perfect fit. A bike that perfectly fits means they’ll be experiencing two-wheeled success and confidence faster than you can say Strider.
RIGHT. SO, HOW EXACTLY DO I MEASURE THIS?
Easy. Have your child stand up really straight with their shoes on (you can have them stand with their back to a wall if that helps). Place a book between their legs and slide it up the wall to meet the crotch seam of their pants, just like they were sitting on a bike saddle. Measure from the top of the book to the floor and….BINGO! You have your inseam.
