I was looking around for a balance bike or run bike for my toddler in Singapore and found the current good brands sold costly (around S$250 and above!). I came across the Strider balance bike and imported one for my little boy and he loved it! It’s light enough for him to carry it and walk up and down the stairs but at the same time, it’s stable. He zips around and goes everywhere with his Strider balance bike these days. I’ve uploaded a video of him riding. You can also watch 2 year olds on the Strider balance bike on youtube in the strider sports website attached above.
So in 2009 we decided to bring the Strider balance bike to Singapore so other kids can benefit from learning to ride a pedaless bike to learn how to balance safely and skip those heavy training wheels to go straight to a 2 wheel regular bike.

The Strider was a favourite in a balance bike review by the New York Times in 2009. In an article written by Yishane Lee, the Strider was described in New York Times as follows:

This steel bike, which weighs less than 7 pounds and supports up to 50 pounds, had a particularly low step-through and footrest. “Like a bike crossed with a scooter,” Mr. Bartolome (reviewer)said. He appreciated the low height on the fully adjustable seat — 11 inches — and that the rubber tires did not need to be pumped with air. “It saved time,” he said.

Comes in 7 attractive colours: black, blue, green, red, pink, yellow and orange.

Accessories now available: handlebar bell, quick release clamp, XL saddle seat, steel centre display stand.

If your toddler can walk, your toddler CAN ride a Strider™ Never need a tricycle. Never need training wheels. With the Strider™ PREbike, there are no “tricycle tip-overs” or “training-wheel wobbles” to create a fear, hesitancy, or dislike of bike riding. The Strider™ running bike helps toddlers learn balance and coordination BEFORE pedaling, which develops glittering confidence. So ditch the tricycle and training wheels, and teach your child to ride a bike sooner and safer with a Strider™.

“I bought a Strider from you recently for my 2.5 year old and he has really taken to riding and gliding on it! It’s amazing to see this little happy toddler zooming around with his bike. Thank you for introducing this wonderful product.”

– Mrs Wong S.K, Bedok

My kids love the bike. My 3 year old can ride it fairly confidently by the 3rd day of use and is now negotiating small slopes. The bike is light enough for her to get the hang of it so quickly 🙂 “

– J. Ong, Montreal Dr

” I am writing especially to thank you. My son took to the Strider so fast and is enjoying his glide within a day of learning, I’m very happy with this.”

– Mr Tan B.C, Grange Rd.

Thanks for getting the bike to me so fast, my son took to it very quickly and absolutely loves his Strider. He is getting very good at riding it too. Just want to let you know I’m a very satisfied customer and will let my friends know about this product.’
