STRIDER Announces All-New SUPER 16 Balance Bike For Spring 2013


Revolutionary 16” Balance Bike Brings No-Pedal, Two-Wheel Fun To An Older Audience 

Rapid City, SD (February 14, 2013) — Strider Sports International, the world’s premier manufacturer and marketer of children’s no-pedal balance bikes for toddlers learning to ride, is taking riding, racing and off-road fun to a whole new level and audience. Designed for kids aged 6-10 years old, the STRIDER™ SUPER 16 (SS-1) No-Pedal Balance Bike is the ultimate bike for those young riders who are ready to venture off trail or perform tricks and stunts that a heavier, more complicated pedal bike won’t allow.

The SUPER 16™ was designed and built based on the same, simple, lightweight, no-pedal design as the original Strider No-Pedal Balance Bike. It has a unique combination of features — the larger integrated footrests and ergonomic caliper handbrakes — making it the only bike of its size capable of pulling double duty as a teaching tool and stunt bike. It is the perfect starter bike for older kids who don’t yet know how to ride on two-wheels, while also designed to ride alongside skateboards, scooters and mountain bikes at skate parks and BMX tracks around the globe.

The SUPER 16 will offer many of the same advantages as the original STRIDER, but with new features innovated specifically for the older age group. 

  • Simple, lightweight design (15 pounds/6 kg)

    Perfect for kids 6-10 years old.

  • Patented STRIDER LAUNCHPAD Footrests

  • Ergonomic Hand Lever & Caliper Brake

    Develops hand-control coordination and fosters next level skills.

“We are so excited to introduce the SUPER 16,” said Ryan McFarland, CEO of Strider Sports International. “It’s a natural next step for both the company, and our family of STRIDER Riders.
