The Strider 16 Sport Special Needs model comes in 5 colors and is a major re-design and overhaul of the initial 16" model launched in previous years. This bike is ideal for kids aged 6-10 years old. With more advanced components, new features, and more adjustability, this balance bike will be a hit with kids who are just learning to ride for the first time and kids who are dealing with special needs challenges. In addition, it is perfect for kids who are tearing it up at BMX bike parks and skate parks!
The Strider 16 Sport balance bikes are the ideal balance of safety, performance, and simplicity- all without sacrificing good clean fun. You also do not have the weight and complication of pedals!
Why BUY This Strider Balance Bike:
A low 3 degree sweep highlight these standard 22.2 mm, 600 mm wide handlebars. Pressed in bearings keep the 1 1/8" stem turning smoothly.
The cross terrain tires ensure a smooth ride on all surfaces while maintaining traction on any terrain. The tire size is 1.75 - 16 and offer a 42 lbs max psi inflation rating.
The fully padded comfortable seat is mounted on a rail allowing multiple front to back and seat angle adjustments. A 25.4 mm seatpost comes standard on the 16" bike.
Seat height (rider inseam) ranges from 19.5 - 25.5 inches (49.5 - 64.8 cm).
Machined aluminum quick release enables “No Tools” saddle height adjustment.
Unique footrests can be added or removed to adjust to the rider's size and ability.
Frame mounted front and rear v brakes grace the 16" model. These brakes ensure more effective stopping power compared to a standard caliper style brake.
All 16” and 20” Sport model Strider bikes ship partially assembled from the factory and will require final assembly and adjustment by an adult with basic mechanical skills. Kindly read through the owner’s manual/assembly instructions and watch our assembly video prior to beginning the work (links below). After reviewing the information, if you do not feel comfortable performing the work, we advise you have a local bicycle shop perform the assembly for you.

Your words are too kind, Cindy R. You're making us blush!
We started as a company selling only scooters and evolved into one featuring thousands of products. Check out our transition video.
With that being said, we know "all work and no play makes Jack a dull boy." We still uphold certain company traditions- our annual company hacky sack race, and adult tumbling classes (it's a team-building exercise!). Yup, those still exist.
