Balance Bikes (Trainers)
Every Jamis youth bike uses size-specific items like grips, saddles and cranks that enhance comfort and control by providing the best possible bike fit. We focus on designing frames with low stand-over’s to take much of the awkwardness out of getting on board and dismounting after. We trim as much weight as we can with lightweight aluminum frames on many of the youth models and use aluminum parts where possible (the limiting factor here is working within a youth bike appropriate price point) to work towards that make-it-as-light-as-possible goal.
The Strider 14x Sport will give your child confidence and riding skills, opening up a world of adventure at a young age. As two bikes in one, it sets a new standard as the best first bike for any child and creates the foundation for instant success. After your child has mastered riding the 14x as a balance bike, your little rider is ready to pedal. Quickly attach the included Easy-Ride Pedal Kit and watch your child seamlessly transition to riding a pedal bike and accomplish this life-changing milestone! Refined through years of prototypes and tested by eager 3- to 7-year-olds, the 14x is truly the next evolution of Strider Balance Bikes. The Strider 14x has been designed to grow with your child (fits inseams of 40-58 cm [16-23 in]), and the included Learn-To-Ride material puts you in control of the best process available for teaching your child to ride. - The adjustable handlebars allow the bike to always fit your child properly. Designed for 3- to 7-year-olds, these handlebars are easy to grip and provide expert steering control. - The 3rd generation headset bushing is specifically engineered to be lightweight and durable. This self-tensioning, self-lubricating polymer headset bushing will provide years of smooth steering. - Specifically designed for a 3- to 7-year-old, Strider's padded seat allows for comfortable riding position and posture. The Strider 14x features a long seat-adjustment range for growing children. - With a weight of only 5.7 kg (12.5 lbs) while it’s in balance bike mode, the Strider 14x is light enough for your little one to take anywhere. After attaching the Easy Ride Pedal Kit, the weight increases to a mere 6.9 kg (15 lbs). - With a plus-sized wheel diameter over a typical 12” kids bike, the 14” wheels are sized just right for ages 3 to 7. - The 44 mm (1.75 inch) width of the pneumatic rubber tires keeps the weight down and the traction up. The all-terrain tread pattern is ready for whatever adventure awaits. - These custom footrests are easily removable once your toddler is ready to pedal. The unique traction pattern makes it easy for kids to confidently and comfortably stand on the footrest. - The Stride Around Pedals are specially designed to serve two purposes. First, they fit a child's foot. Second, their narrow form allows children to stride around them to gain momentum. - The provided chain guard delivers the safety to protect your rider from any bike chain accidents. Not only that, but it keeps the chain and gears clean from any mud or gunk that might be part of the adventure. - The included Easy Ride Pedal Kit is equipped a foot-actuated rear coaster brake. This brake is CPSC certified to the highest safety standards required by law, allowing children to be in complete stopping control.
The budget-friendly Strider Classic comes equipped with our no-flat tires, which are ready to take any punishment that your little renegade can dole out. The lightweight, steel frame was specifically constructed for child-level durability (that's the highest level of durability BTW). Oh yeah, it also has the lowest seat height of any balance bike (28-40 cm [11-16 in.]) on the market, so it fits an inseam of 30-43 cm (12-17 in.). Why? Because those little legs need to perfectly fit the bike they're riding to build up that confidence. The Strider Classic is a great, unembellished choice for those that want to jump in the pool but aren't quite ready to cannonball. Become your little rebel's biggest cheerleader with the best bike out there.
