Time to Graduate from Shotgun to Tow Rope - Kids Ride Shotgun Expands the Line 9

For when your little one wants to rip but those pesky climbs are holding them back!

Time to Graduate from Shotgun to Tow Rope - Kids Ride Shotgun Expands the Line

If your mini mountain biker hates riding uphill, then the guys from shotgun have you covered. Their new MTB tow rope is designed to take the hassle out of hill climbs, so that you can tackle bigger adventures with your little rider.

The concept is simple. The shotgun tow rope attaches to the parent's saddle – and is connected to the kids stem via a shock-absorbing rope, which stretches to 10-feet (3.1-meters) when you’re towing a kid uphill. The setup is rated to 500-pounds / 225kg, so it’s suitable for big kids too.

"My son is riding a 20-inch bike now, but the hills are still pretty challenging for his little legs. The tow rope has been a game changer for us, now we can do bigger rides" – Dan, Shotgun.

The shotgun tow rope is available by itself, or you can combo it up and get a rad animal-print hip pack in the same kit. The hip pack is designed to be worn by MTB kids, and provides the perfect place to stash the tow rope during your next family ride.

Mountain bike parents can order the tow rope (and the tow rope + hip pack combo) from their local bike shop, or learn more at www.kidsrideshotgun.com
