Strider Bikes has announced the carbon Strider 12 ST-R Balance Bike, the newest addition to the Strider 12 lineup.
The company is the world’s global leader in teaching children to ride beginning at six months.
The 12 ST-R features a full carbon-fiber frame, fork, wheels, handlebar, and seatpost, along with a Cane Creek AER headset, a custom-forged alloy stem, Schwalbe Big Apple Tires, and a variety of additional high-performance components.
Strider founder and chief enthusiast Ryan McFarland said: “At $899, this is not your conventional Strider Bike.
“While the vast majority of our bikes focus on durability, function, and value for families with young children learning to ride, the ST-R is an over-the-top, no-expense-spared, limited-edition race bike for the obsessed super-enthusiast.”
The Strider 12 ST-R joins the Strider 12 lineup including the steel-frame Strider 12 Sport and the all-aluminum Strider 12 Pro, both available as part of the Strider 12 Baby Bundle.
Strider further supports racing and two-wheeling enthusiasts with the global Strider Cup race series.
These racing events introduce competition to children and allow them to put their balance bike skills to the test.
The Strider 12 ST-R Balance Bike will be available worldwide from select authorised Strider distributors in limited quantities beginning October 2018.
