Strider Bikes Launch Heavy-Duty Wheel Set 

For Maximum STRIDER Fun


Pneumatic Tires Give Older Riders An All-Terrain Wheel For All Seasons


Rapid City, SD (November 27, 2013) - Strider Sports Intl., Inc., the world's premier manufacturer and marketer of children's no-pedal balance bikes, is releasing an all-new wheel just in time for the holidays. The Heavy-Duty Wheel 12" set is designed to help young riders advance to the next stage of their bicycling progression.


Developed for kids aged 3 years old and up, the STRIDER™ Heavy-Duty Wheel Set is the perfect accessory for older riders who desire high traction more than an ultralight wheel, while still weighing in at a modest 1.8 pounds a piece.


The STRIDER Heavy Duty Wheels meet the same quality of the stock STRIDER wheel, but with new features innovated specifically for the older age group:

  • High-Traction, Inflatable Tires
    • o    Ideal for kids 3 & Over
  • All-Surface Tread
    • o    Perfect for the trails, the park, or the backyard
  • Strong Alloy Rims
    • o    Easily handles skatepark stunts
  • Steel Hub & Spokes
    • o    Tough & ready for performance
  • Fits All STRIDER 12" (ST) Model Bikes
    • o    Easy to upgrade

"The STRIDER Heavy-Duty Wheels help bridge the gap during a crucial stage of a young rider's development," said Ryan McFarland, CEO of Strider Sports International. "When a child is ready to start doing more intense riding, it's a natural step to upgrade to a pneumatic wheel and bring the 'Strider Evolution' one step closer to a full-fledged pedal bike."


STRIDER Heavy Duty Wheels are available through the Strider website and at local dealers. MSRP $49. To learn more about the STRIDER Heavy Duty Wheels and how to purchase, visit
