Parents of little kids are probably familiar with the Strider bike line of pedal-less bicycles. Over a million have been sold to date, and now a certain Swedish motorcycle company wants to get in on the action. Strider is teaming up with Husqvarna for a special edition line of Strider bikes.
The sleek-looking, white Husqvarna Strider no-pedal balance bike is mechanically the same as the Strider 12-inch Sport, but is customized with stylish yellow mini-grips for toddler hands and a blue mini-saddle for toddler hips, along with stylish Husqvarna graphics.
Designed for children ranging in age from 18 months to five years, the Strider bike weighs 6.7 pounds, is easy to control and features an adjustable seat and handlebars to accommodate a growing child. Most importantly, a Strider teaches kids balance and coordination. Often, Strider claims many kids transition from its bikes to standard pedal bicycles without ever needing training wheels.
“I remember watching my motorcycling heroes on Husqvarna motorcycles back in the 70’s when I was a child, so I was excited to see the recent return of this legendary brand,” says Ryan McFarland, Strider’s founder. “Now, I’m even more excited to be part of introducing the next generation of riders to the brand with our new Husqvarna Strider bike.”
The Husqvarna Strider bikes are in stock now and available to ship immediately. The Minimum Advertised Price (MAP) is $139.99 and includes free shipping. For more information or to purchase a Husqvarna Strider, visit www.StriderBikes.com.
