Strider Bikes unveils a Carbon Balance Bike
Looks like the engineers over at Strider Bikes decided to have a little fun with their newest addition to the Strider 12 lineup, the carbon Strider 12 ST-R Balance Bike.
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.
“At $899, this is not your conventional Strider Bike,” noted Strider Founder and Chief Enthusiast Ryan McFarland. “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. And, man, is it cool!”
Strider further supports racing and two-wheeling enthusiasts with the global Strider Cup race series. These family-friendly racing events introduce encouraging competition to children and allow them to put their balance bike skills to the test. Notable Strider Cup races include the regional Strider Cup Asian Championship and the Strider Cup World Championship.
The Strider 12 ST-R joins the Strider 12 lineup including the most popular and more affordable, steel-frame Strider 12 Sport and the all-aluminum, Strider 12 Pro. The ST-R will be available worldwide from select Authorized Strider Distributors in limited quantities beginning October 2018.
