It’s always cool to see a product come through Kickstarter, especially when it strives to resolve basic experiential gaps in cycling. The innovative Pahoj easily falls under this category by creating a bicycle child seat that doubles as a stroller, making child-wielding more reasonable while maintaining an active and car-free (or at least limited) lifestyle.
Check out how the Pahoj will replace both your child seat and stroller after the jump…
Seeing an opportunity to help families maintain a healthy, cycling lifestyle while having small children, Pahoj’s inventor Lycke von Schantz sought to design a family focused machine to resolve the challenges of toddler wrangling once everyone arrives at the destination.
The stroller mounts to a bracket that is rigidly fixed to the bike’s seat tube, adjustable for 28mm to 40mm diameters, and is designed to not interfere with existing rack systems so riders can carry rear cargo. It is possible to purchase several brackets so that multiple family members are able to dock the stroller in “pick and drop” scenarios at daycare.
The stroller features an adjustable harness to keep the child secure on or off the bike. Also, the telescopic handle adjusts up to 40.5 inches in height to be functional for adults at a range of heights and can be easily stowed away while the stroller is docked and in motion.
Molded into the Polypropylene seat are several gripping holds to help with stroller installation as well as adjustable foot supports for the child. The stroller also includes a functional brake to prevent undesired rolling when on the ground and durable powdercoated chassis to reduce opportunities for wear. It all weighs in at lightweight 7.7lbs when assembled.
The Kickstarter campaign promises all sorts of fun styling scenarios for early adopters and big spenders such as Pahoj with reflective chassis and custom styled seats.
