Strider Bikes' Ride to 85 Million Impressions with PR Volt

Strider Bikes, founded in 2007, has been a trailblazer in the world of children's bicycles. With a mission to foster a love of riding from an early age, Strider revolutionized the concept of balance bikes. These unique bicycles, designed without pedals, emphasize the development of balance and coordination in children as young as six months old. This innovative approach has not only simplified the learning process but also instilled confidence and independence in young riders.

At the heart of Strider Bikes is the belief that learning to ride starts with developing balance, rather than pedaling. This philosophy has led to a range of products tailored for different age groups, ensuring a seamless transition from toddling to confident riding. From the Rocking Bike for the youngest enthusiasts to the Balance Bike and the Balance Bike with Pedal Kit for older children, Strider offers a progressive learning path. Each bike is crafted to grow with the child, ensuring years of fun and skill development.

Strider's commitment to quality and innovation is evident in every bike they create. The company's dedication to empowering the next generation of riders is reflected in their global reach, with more than 4 million bikes sold and distribution in over 75 countries. Strider Bikes isn't just about selling bikes; it's about creating a community of confident, adventurous, and healthy children who will carry their love of riding into adulthood.


Before partnering with PR Volt, Strider faced challenges in amplifying their reach and effectively conveying their unique brand story. As pioneers in creating balance bikes for children, Strider had already achieved notable success and recognition. However, the company sought to elevate their public relations to a new level. Their primary objectives were clear: increase traffic and sales, and enhance brand awareness. 

The collaboration with PR Volt marked a turning point. Leveraging PR Volt's expertise, Strider Bikes witnessed a remarkable transformation in their PR outcomes. The tailored, multi-faceted approach adopted by PR Volt included AI-Enhanced Customized Pitching, Responsive Pitching, and a focus on Awards & Speaking Opportunities, among other strategies. This comprehensive plan not only aligned with Strider's goals but also brought their unique brand story to the forefront, engaging a broader audience.
