Entry Description

A family of rear-mounted and front-mounted bicycle child carriers with a thoughtful and attractive design. Both carriers are simple and easy to install and remove via a quick-release mechanism. The rear carrier’s attachment structure doubles as a bike rack when the carrier is removed. The safety-conscious production also includes an articulated safety bar that becomes the back legs of a stand-alone chair. The child’s comfort is further addressed with a high-tech seating pad, adjustable foot rests, and a ventilated seat back with a delightful Voronoi-inspired turtle shell pattern.
