The Nicky Hayden Ducati Corse STRIDER is modeled after the Ducati Desmosedici GP13, and is built for toddlers (18 months to five years) to teach them how to ride. With its no-pedal design, toddlers can “cruise” over dirt, grass and pavement, the company says. Its light weight (under 7 lbs.) makes it easy for children to control, while an adjustable seat and handlebars allows the bike to adjust to a child’s rapidly growing height.
In addition, a test performed within the University of South Dakota’s division of Kinesiology and Sport Science concluded that “participants benefited from using a STRIDER bike by improving their balance and functional fitness, while likely reducing future injuries during their daily routines.”
This particular STRIDER, also a Ducati official licensed product, comes complete with Nicky Hayden’s number plate.
“The Ducati Corse STRIDER is an exciting new addition to our line of moto-branded STRIDERs,” said Ryan McFarland, founder of Strider. “The Ducati brand is synonymous with performance and passion for riding.” www.striderbikes.com
