After two years of Strida experience it was time for an introduction of a re-developed and improved version: the Strida 5.0, launched in April 2007. Again, the popularity was stupendous. Strida Netherlands BV decided to establish a dealer network throughout the Netherlands. In addition, they entered the Belgian and German market in the spring 2007.
The big interest from all over Europe in these unique folding bikes showed that not only the Benelux was ready for the Strida, but also the rest of Europe. January 1st of 2008, Strida Europe was established, covering all members of the European Union including Norway, but with the exception of France, Belgium and Luxembourg.
