Machined aluminum quick release allows “No Tools” saddle height adjustment from 27-48cm (11-16”) for the perfect fit for your child and for handlebars to be set at the perfect height for your child as they grow.
Unique,Patented frame-integrated footrests are properly positioned directly below the saddle for natural bike balance. This position also fosters the advanced ability to stand while coasting and has Strider exclusive tape for grip
Strider-exclusive rear brake mount allows the addition of a foot-operated brake once the kids are proficiently gliding with feet on the footrests.Brake sold separately. We never suggest fitting this to start as it can confuse – the ideal is that your child learns to stop using their feet as in an emergency that is the safest way to stop.
We don’t endorse finger pulled lever brakes as our research shows that kids can’t always reach them to control them properly.
