The striker is made for football stars of the future, with neon colours inspired by the latest boot colours to the football themed accessories it is a perfect first bike.
Developed on a slightly larger hi-tensile steel frame with oversized tubes for increased strength and with a rigid fork, it ensures the bike is easy to manoeuvre for little riders. The handlebars are raised slightly higher than normal for increased visibility and it is packed with a full range of safety features for parent's peace of mind. The Striker also comes with stabilisers, which are an essential for your child's first bike, providing them with confidence during their first cycling adventures and allowing them to learn balance and coordination safely.
The Striker features Caliper brakes and resin brake levers, which are designed to be easily operated by little fingers fitted with an adjustment screw to fit smaller hands.
Aluminium rims give an improved surface for the brake blocks to brake against and junior non-slip pedals, a safety feature Raleigh has been fitting to Children's bikes for years, are fitted with rubber pads to prevent feet slipping off. Each pair of non-slip pedals is carefully colour matched to fit the bike design.
The Striker has a full chain guard which is colour co-ordinated with graphics to match the bike design and is a functional necessity. Not only does it stop the dirt getting on your child and their clothes but it also keeps the sharp edges of the chain wheel covered and away from little fingers. It also has front and rear coloured mudguards as standard.
Raleigh ensures their bikes are packed with fun features, just as much as safety features! The Striker hosts a range of football themed accessories including a bell, valve caps and water bottle plus colour co-ordinated grips, spoke decorations and printed saddle.
