2-in-1 Model Features Easy-Ride Pedal Kit
Rapid City, S.D. (Oct. 16, 2017)
Strider Sports Int’l., Inc., the world’s premier balance bike manufacturer is ecstatic about their newest product launch: the Strider 14x Sport Balance Bike. This is a game-changer when it comes to learning to ride. Once the child has mastered using the 14x in balance bike mode, parents can simply attach the Easy-Ride Pedal Kit with one bolt.
“We’ve established that training wheels and tricycles are obsolete,” said Ryan McFarland, CEO and Founder of Strider Sports. “Balance bikes are the best way to train our children how to ride. We’ve brought the entire learn-to-ride process together into one amazing bike. The Strider 14x Sport Balance Bike with the Easy-Ride Pedal Kit is the only bike you will need to help your child ride with instant success. The 14x is proof that a child, no matter their experience level, can ride a bike in no time and achieve this life-changing milestone. Tested by eager 3- to 7-year-old riders, their input helped us refine it into the best bike possible for a child.”
The 14x Grows with a Child
Designed to grow with the child, the 14x is completely adjustable. With a fully adjustable seat and handlebars, it seamlessly transitions from a balance bike to a pedal bike. The easy transition builds confidence, provides instant success, and means a better value for parents.
The 14x Was Designed for a Proper Fit
Specifically designed for a child’s proportions, shorter crank arms make pedaling easier. Strider also designed the 14x to fit better between the rider’s hips. Its narrow design gives the child an easier and more powerful pedal stroke.
The 14x Is Best Way to Teach Riding
The low center of gravity gives a child complete control. Low enough to teach children how to stride and pedal effectively, the 14x allows them to put their feet on the ground whenever they want. The narrow pedals make striding to gain momentum and pedaling with confidence a breeze.
Available in the continental US now in either Fantastic Green or Awesome Blue from Strider Sports (www.StriderBikes.com) and Amazon, the new 14x Sport Balance Bike also includes a Learn to Ride – Stride Guide and Learn to Ride – Pedal Guide and will help parents coach their children to stride & pedal successfully. It retails for $209.99.
