"The STRIDER 16 Sport model is a major redesign of our initial 16" model launched last year. With better components, new features, and more adjustability, we know this bike will be a hit with kids who are just learning to ride for the first time and kids who are dealing with special needs challenges, as well as those who are tearing it up at the skate parks and BMX bike parks.
We believe these new models are the perfect balance of simplicity, safety, performance, and FUN, without the weight and complication of pedals," says Ryan McFarland, CEO of Strider Sports International.
A low 3 degree sweep highlight these standard 22.2mm, 600mm wide handlebars. Pressed in bearings keep the 1 1/8" stem turning smoothly.
The cross terrain tires offer a smooth ride on all surfaces while maintaining traction in the dirt. The tire size is 1.75 - 16 and offer a 42 lb. max psi inflation rating.
The fully padded seat is mounted on a rail allowing multiple front to back and seat angle adjustments. A 25.4mm seatpost comes standard on the 16" bike.
Seat height (rider inseam) ranges from 19.5 - 25.5 inches (49.5 - 64.8 cm).
Frame mounted front and rear v brakes grace the 16" model. These brakes offer greater stopping power compared to a standard caliper style brake.
All 16” and 20” Sport model STRIDER bikes ship partially assembled from the factory and will require final assembly and adjustment by an adult with basic mechanical skills. Please read through the owner’s manual/assembly instructions and watch our assembly video prior to beginning the work (links below). After reviewing the information, if you don’t feel comfortable performing the work, we suggest you have your local bicycle shop perform the work for you.
