When many of us learned to ride a bike we started out with training wheels until our parents made the risky commitment of removing the training wheels and pushing us off, nervously hoping that we didn't hit a fence or parked car. These days kids have it easy, because you can start them off right with the Strider 12 Sport Balance Bike. With a Strider kick bike, you can watch your child go from sitting and walking, to sitting and striding, to full blown riding. It's revolutionized the way kids learn to ride, providing a safer and more gradual progression that naturally teaches them how to balance a bike. And the best part is you can start them off even younger, as the 12-inch wheels are perfect for toddlers, and you can adjust the seat and handlebar height to fit them properly as they grow. Strider makes three different versions of 12in-wheeled balance bikes, with the Sport model sitting smack dab in the middle and serving as their best all-around model. While it lacks the ultra-lightweight aluminum frame of the Strider 12 Pro, it does offer several important features over the entry-level 12 Classic, such as performance footrests, no-tool assembly with easy-adjust clamps, and two sizes of seatposts that let's you adapt the bike to fit your child as they grow.
