Rapid City, SD (November 15, 2016) — Strider Sports International, Inc., the world’s premier manufacturer and marketer of no-pedal balance bikes for kids ages 18 months to 5 years old, is pleased to announce the launch of its Realtree Strider 12 Custom Balance Bike in response to demand from hunting/fishing outdoor enthusiasts.
According to Strider Founder and Chief Enthusiast, Ryan McFarland, “Our bike designs often come from a group of passionate families in the market place. In this case, we had so many people asking for a camo pattern color bike that we simply couldn’t resist. Better yet, we share the same values with the Realtree brand: family, friends, and the outdoors. We are very excited about seeing, or should I say, not really seeing young toddlers riding the new Realtree Strider Bikes out in nature.”
If your toddler can walk, Realtree Strider Bikes will get your toddler cruising over dirt, grass, twigs, and trees. The bike is customized with the official Realtree graphics on a black Strider 12 Classic model for toddlers ages 18 months to three years old. An optional extra-long seat post will extend the life of the Realtree Strider to kids five years old (or 44 inches in height). The Realtree Strider Bike weighs just 6.5 pounds, has the lowest seat height and an integrated footrest for easy striding, is easy to control, and features an adjustable seat and handlebars to accommodate a growing child. Most importantly, the Realtree Strider Bike teaches a child balance and coordination and develops a glittering confidence not seen with tricycles or training-wheel bikes.
Realtree Strider Balance Bikes are industry-leading training bikes that help children of all abilities as young as 18 months learn to ride on two wheels. The simple, no-pedal design builds confidence and eliminates fear by allowing kids to have their feet on the ground and progress at their own pace. With over 1 million sold to date, parents agree this is the top of the line for a kid’s first bike.
The Realtree Strider 12 Custom Balance Bike will be initially available for sale 4th Quarter at retailers such as Dick’s Sporting Goods and Cabela’s, and retails for $99.99. All other Strider Bikes and accessories are available through the Strider website and at local Authorized Strider Dealers.
