Strider ST-4 Balance Bike Look Mum NO Pedals!
Strider ST-4 No- Pedal Balance Bike!
Strider Sports International is regarded as one of the world's premier manufacturers of children's no-pedal balance bikes, these bikes are predominately aimed at toddlers.
By having no pedals the toddler can quickly gain the feel and balance required to step up to a pedal bike in the fastest possible time.
STRIDER No-Pedal balance bikes are a proven concept for encouraging balance and general motor skills.
STRIDER No-Pedal bikes are built to last and have a reputation of durability and safety.
Strider have spent quite a few years changing and improving their balance bikes and the ST-4 is the end result. All of the changes have added to the overall quality and ease of use that toddlers will appreciate.

The St-4 Upgrades!
Strider really work hard at improving each model and the upgrades to the ST-4 make these balance bikes even more user friendly.
1. Sealed ball bearings replace the old cup and cone bearings in previous models, these have proven to be much smoother and more reliable.
2. The tyres get an upgrade in the tread department.
3. The frame is now powder coated compared to baked enamel.
4. New Graphics and styling.
5. Softer, narrower grips.
The sealed bearings will ultimately be much more free running, meaning less effort to get moving. The tyre tread has been designed for less rolling resistance also.
The frame being now powder coated will handle the bumps and knocks that toddlers are renowned for. The smart new graphics give it a modern look, while the grips are slightly smaller to match a toddlers hand.

The STRIDER range has been held in high regard for years, the STRIDER name is synonymous with quality and ease of use, many toddlers have learnt valuable balance and motor skill's on a STRIDER built balance bike.
These skills will benefit them when the time arises, to step up to a bigger peddle operated bike, it's a natural progression that thousands of toddlers have experienced.
The ST-4 would make an awesome introduction to balance biking, with it's ability to move with the smallest of effort to it's balanced design, making it easier for little people to master.
Add to this their exciting colour range as well as some bikes having custom graphics, such as Honda and Nitro Circus these bikes will be a big hit with your youngster.
There's no question these bikes are built to handle toddler abuse, they've been handling it for years now. With the frame being powder coated they will look great for years.
It's not uncommon to hear of bikes being handed down through families, with two or three or more children enjoying their first set of wheels.
As with all sports safety is an integral part of any sport, and riding balance bikes is no different, just because your toddler doesn't appear to be going fast, injuries still occur.
I can't stress enough, spend the time to fit a helmet , knee and elbow pads at the very least ensure they wear an approved helmet.
I would have no trouble recommending one of these bikes to my friends, I personally think there that good.

Let's Not Forget Safety!
One of life's pleasures is a casual walk through your local park, kids running and laughing kicking footballs, dogs chasing sticks and balls, and your own toddler experiencing freedom on their bike.
Whether it's a balance bike or they have progressed up to a bigger pedal bike, one HUGE factor remains the same SAFETY!
First and foremost a Helmet, and not just some old hand me down, these days Helmets that meet all relevant safety requirements are within almost anyone's budget.
Lets face it, your head is pretty vital to your survival so there is NO EXCUSE for not wearing a good quality Helmet.
There are plenty of choices available, including many fashionable colours and designs, so please make sure you child has a modern approved Helmet on when riding.
Next, a sturdy but comfortable pair of shoe's is almost as important as a Helmet, not only for riding but toddlers will drop the bike anywhere and start walking or running at or to whatever their hearts desire, so you don't want them standing on glass or anything sharp.
To raise the safety stakes even higher you might consider Knee and Elbow pads, again I stress a Helmet is the minimum I would let my child ride with.
But toddlers usually don't care about looks at their age, so knee and elbow pads are a great investment to save skinned knee's and elbows.
Some Safety Suggestions!
Your Toddler will avoid nasty skinned knee's and elbows with these!
Beautiful colours, this will be a hit!
Hands need protecting too!
Nice set for little girls!
