The Arlen Ness Double Down Charity Edition Strider Bike pays tribute to one of the best-known names in the motorcycle industry. Arlen Ness created custom motorcycles that inspired hundreds of thousands of riders around the globe. His red Strider was designed with the familiar “Custom A” that has adorned so many trend-setting designs, many that can be seen in the museum in Dublin, CA.
Donations from the purchase of this bike will go towards the Grand Multiple Myeloma Translational Initiative (Grand MMTI), an organization that assisted Arlen in his fight against blood cancer. The mission of AllKidsBike.org is to teach every child in America how to ride a bike in kindergarten PE class.
The All Kids Bike portion of the donation is earmarked to the Moorhead, MN School District, the small town where Arlen was born. Once Moorhead is fully funded, donations will be reserved for Dublin, CA area schools. With a direct $12,000 donation on Arlen’s name care of long-time business partner Polaris Industries, most of the schools are funded and with your support, Arlen’s legacy will live on with all Moorhead kids being exposed to the freedom and fun of being on two wheels, something that Arlen enjoyed every day he could.
The Ness family thanks you for your continued support, and for helping kids to learn how to ride with the wind. With every purchase of the Arlen Ness Double Down Charity Strider Bike, $20 is donated to the Grand Multiple Myeloma Translational Initiative and $20 to the All Kids Bike campaign.
We believe in raising kids who excel at life and always have the courage to tackle whatever comes next. That’s why the Strider 12 Sport Balance Bike has become the ultimate vehicle for kids as young as 18 months. Your tiny-legged toddler is ready to ride, thirsting for freedom, and craving adventure. Give your child the bike that set the world on fire and encourages them to experience the thrill of riding while developing confidence and coordination…before they’re even out of diapers.
The Sport is our best all-around model. Mini-grips mean little mitts can easily take control and make this lean, mean, durable bike the biggest bang for your buck, which is probably why it’s our best seller. The 12 Sport is the perfect bike to take your child from baby steps to big strides, all without busting out a toolkit (tool-free seat and handlebar adjustment AND tires that never go flat). The Strider Sport has a seat height range from 28-48 cm (11-19 in.), which means it fits a huge range of inseam lengths (30-51 cm [12-20 in.]). The cushy, padded seat and an additional extra-long seatpost means your child will get years out of their Strider.
Boring specs aside, this is the bike that introduces kids to the freedom, power, and responsibility of riding. Now they have the power to keep up with you when you’re out and about. No more strollers. No more of those ridiculous kid leashes. Your child can experience the truly amazing freedom that comes with being a part of the Strider family.
In our quest to turn kids into awesome human beings, we even made our Official Strider Learn-To-Ride Guide available online to anyone who registers their child’s Strider. Become your kiddo’s biggest cheerleader with the best bike out there.
