Strider 12 Classic
This basic model gives every kid the chance to experience the joy of a Strider Bike.


Learning to ride shouldn’t be complicated or frustrating.

  • A girl on a blue Strider 12 Classic points to the sky during a ride
  • A girl riding a pink Strider 12 Classic balance bike on red rocks with a canyon in the background
  • A girl riding a blue Strider 12 Classic through a park
  • a boy in a black bike helmet riding a red Strider 12 Classic balance bike across a wooden bridge
  • A boy in a green full-face helmet rides a green Strider 12 Classic balance bike across a wooden bridge

To make learning to ride easy, Strider 12 Bikes are:

Sized just right

From grips that fit little hands to lightweight frames that a toddler can maneuver, Strider 12 bikes are engineered with little riders in mind.

Easy to assemble

Get your little one rolling in minutes with quick and easy assembly. We include all the tools you’ll need.

Highly Adjustable

The Quick Release clamp makes adjusting the seat a snap, so your Strider 12 Classic can grow along with your child!


Our Flat-Free Foam Rubber Tires and maintenance-free wheel bearings mean you’ll never have to fix a flat.

Built to Last

Despite their light weight, all Strider 12 frames are made to withstand all the abuse your toddler can throw at it.


To make sure your ownership of a Strider Bike is the best experience it can be, we offer a two-year warranty against manufacturing defects.


The Strider 12 Classic is our basic model that comes equipped with our no-flat tires, which are ready to take the punishment that only mud puddles and heavy riding can dole out. The lightweight, steel frame was specifically constructed for child-level durability and has the lowest seat height in a balance bike, so even the tiniest of toddlers can ride comfortably. The Strider 12 Classic is a great, unembellished choice that gives every kid the chance to experience the simple joy of a Genuine Strider Bike (at least until naptime).
