The Pro includes all the best-selling features of the Strider 12 Sport with the addition of a race-ready number plate, performance footrest, and lightweight aluminum frame. Puncture-proof tires require no maintenance. Seat and handlebar height are quickly adjustable without the use of tools. The footrest and padded seat are sized perfectly for toddler hips.

The only Strider available in silver, the lightweight and feature-packed Strider 12 Pro is the top-of-the-line choice for your child’s first bike!

Strider Bikes are designed with a low seat height so children can start riding when they are 18 months old. The Pro also features an extra-long seat adjustment range, adjusting from 28 – 48 cm (11 – 19 in), to fit children with an inseam 30 – 51 cm (12 – 20 in). This means it will grow with your child even longer, up to 5 years old!

Strider Bikes have taught millions of children how to balance and ride on two wheels—without the distractions and complications of pedals or training wheels. With over 1.5 million sold, parents agree Strider is the top of the line balance bike brand!
