The Bike Without Pedals Enables 1,5 Years Old Child to Ride

Strider Bikes is an American Brand, that produces balance bikes without pedals and enables children to ride without any problem.

A balance bike is simply the best way for a child to learn balance and learn to ride a bike! From toddlers and young children to teenagers and adults just learning to ride, and those with special needs, there is a Strider balance bike to get them on two wheels.

Strider Bike Georgia is an importer of those bikes in Georgia. Initially, 32 years old Giorgi Kazakhashvili has imported some of such bikes on a trial basis. He made a statement to MARKETER this is a family business and in case of demand increase he will bring large orders.

Balance bikes are much safer and more practical than tricycles and training wheels. On a balance bike, children are focused on balancing, rather than pedaling. As a result, they are more prepared for unforeseen loses in balance and are much less likely to fall.

These bikes develop leg muscles and do not distort the shape of the foot. In addition, the child becomes more independent, and acquires skills that would be useful in the future.

Kids love the independence and sense of accomplishment they get from riding a balance bike.

“Strider bike” weights 2.9 kg and 1.5 years old child is able to independently move it.

When learning to ride, a child must be allowed to experience the feel of leaning and how steering affects the balance of the bike. When a child learns to ride without leaning, such as on a tricycle or bike with training wheels, they aren’t really learning to ride at all!

By starting out on a balance bike, your child will develop balance, coordination, and confidence!

I knew it would be an attractive product in Georgia. I think it is a great feeling when you see one and a half years old child independently rides a bicycle. I have a 3-year-old boy, Nicholas, who is having the balance bike and independently rides it from the age of 2 since today.

When I studied the characteristics, features and advantages of “Strider”, I saw a big difference between the other analogues. I wrote a letter to the main office of Strider in the US and told I am a parent, my son has this balance bike and I have a huge desire other children to have an opportunity of having such bikes in our country.

They asked me whether I had any experience in this field and whether I would be able to sell them. I replied that I was in the field of sales and marketing for 4 years and I had generated the skills in terms of product offering, advertising, promotion and sale.

Then, the representative from “Strider” arrived in Georgia and we talked with local parents. 90% of them expressed their interest towards this product. Then, I brought in a few bikes, and as soon as the demand increases, I will increase the amount of the import.

In our country those bicycles are not sold. The only possible way is to buy it via Internet, it’s even more uncomfortable and accompanied by problems.

I have decided to purchase them by myself from the US and by now any interested person is able to buy it in Georgia.

The price of Balance Bikes is less than a buyer subscribes it from “the Amazon”, because from Amazon the cost amounts to 350 GEL.
