Best Price Review by Shane
After searching the shops and the net Velogear was by far the cheapest and even gave a discount at checkout.
I purchased a Strider classic for by Granddaughters birthday. Very happy with the product , My only concern is with Austpost as it was dispatched Tuesday and didn't arrive an hour away until Friday. So leave plenty of time .I will recomend and use you again.
Thank you
PS maybe check out one of the courier company's ?
5 Stars Review by angela
After only 2 days on the strider our son was easily able to hop on his bike and join in with the other kids. Our only regret is not getting him a Strider at a younger age!

Standard 22.2mm steel handlebar and soft urethane grips with protective ends.  Machined aluminum binder clamp allows height adjustment from 46-56cm (18-22”).  5mm wrench included.


Strider-exclusive, ultralight one-piece wheels sport a raised-letter, five-spoke design with 10 bearing support gussets for maximum strength at the lightest weight possible.

Top-quality sealed cartridge bearings roll smooth and never need adjustment.


EVA polymer (industrial foam) tires are super light and durable yet offer a smooth ride. Best of all, they never need air and will never go flat.


The durable, all-weather mini-saddle is designed specifically for beginning riders and their tiny hips.  Smaller, narrower, and lighter than a typical saddle, this seat allows for proper riding position and posture.  ** riders over 3 years old may need XL saddle and long seat post sold separately.

Bar and seat clamps

Machined aluminum binder clamp allows saddle height adjustment from 28-41cm (11-16”) for the perfect fit for your child.  5mm wrench included.


Unique, frame-integrated footrests are properly positioned directly below the saddle for natural bike balance. This position also fosters the advanced ability to stand while gliding as well as pumping and jumping the bike

Brake mount

Strider-exclusive rear brake mount allows the addition of a foot-operated brake once the kids are proficiently gliding with feet on the footrests. Brake kit sold separately.
