When it comes to bike riding and toddler enjoyment, weight and fit are critical. The goal of the ST-3 design was to improve the complete biking experience for toddlers worldwide. The bars and seat are now fully adjustable to accommodate the youngest Strider riders as they grow. No other bike on the planet gives toddlers a better introduction to all aspects of biking.
Toddlers 2 to 5 years old will be racing original and ST-3 Strider bikes at the Strider World Championship in Sarasota, Florida from October 14-17, 2011. How’s that for functional? To see what toddlers are capable of on a Strider bike, head over to our Strider Cup YouTube Channel!
The Strider ST-3 features new custom Strider Ultra-Light Wheels which combine strong, lightweight wheels with the toddler-proven EVA polymer tire that never goes flat. The Strider is always ready to ride! The total assembled weight of the Strider ST-3 Balance Bike is 6.4 pounds.
Instead of using adult-sized grips, the Strider ST-3 features smaller diameter Mini-Grips and Handlebars that actually fit a toddler’s hands. The ST-3 also features the Strider Mini-Saddle sized for those little toddler hips!
The Strider ST-3 requires no tools for assembly thanks to the custom Strider quick-clamp adjustable seat and handlebars. It is ultra-convenient for parents to get the Strider seat down to the industry standard 11-inch seat height for their 18 month old, then adjust both the seat and handlebars as the toddler grows.
The ST-3 retains the Strider Sports-patented Launch-Pad Footrests and performance geometry. As with all Strider models, the ST-3 can be fitted with Strider Sports Extra-Long Seatpost and Saddle option for toddlers to continue to hone their bike skills up to age five and beyond.
With the introduction of the Strider ST-3, toddler bike technology will never be the same again. The Strider ST-3 Balance Bike will be available November 15 through www.StriderSports.com and other Authorized Strider Dealers. US MSRP $132.22.
Strider Bikes are currently distributed in 35 countries worldwide.
