smarTrike announces its Xtend line - the world’s first and only extendable range of bikes, scooters and ride-ons. Featuring patented technology the range goes against the grain with products that grow with children and are built to last. The durable range embodies smarTrike’s philosophy of supporting a child’s development while being the sustainable and economical option.

The Xtend Bike

The Xtend Bike is a game-changer for parents, children and the planet. The sustainable bike allows children to use one convertible bike from ages three to seven and beyond with three products built into one. From a balance bike to a pedal bike and then onto a fully extendable bike which grows with them, the Xtend Bike is made from the highest quality durable materials and built to last.

Toddlers can gain confidence on a balance bike and transfer their new-found skills when it’s converted into a pedal ride they are already confident and comfortable using without the need for training wheels. An easy pedal installation system takes seconds to transform the Xtend Bike from a balance bike to a pedal bike with three simple screws. Available in pink and blue, the Xtend Bike retails for £299.99.

The Xtend Ride-On

The Xtend Ride-On grows with children from 12 months to 12 years. The one product covers five stages of development. It starts as a parent-controlled rideable, but by removing the handle kids can gain independence and build confidence. The built-in storage box allows parents to store the handlebar, as well as any other essentials.

The Xtend Ride-on features smarTrike’s patented footboard, the only extendable footboard in the world. The extra large light-up LED wheels allow children to cover tough terrain. The quick folding design means trips out are a breeze. It’s available in four colours for £149.99 or is the equivalent of £13.64 for every year of use between the ages of 12 months to 12 years.

British Parents Are Spending Over £15 Billion on Children’s Bikes

On average a child requires a new bike every 18 months for £185. This means the average family is spending £1,350.50 on children’s bikes over their childhood. In the UK, there are 12.7 million children and 88% of them own or have access to a bike. This suggests that British parents could be spending over £15 billion on bikes for their children throughout their childhood.

Children’s bikes aren’t just impacting families’ budgets, but also the planet. 12.5 million unused children’s bikes are estimated to be in garages, sheds and cupboards. Millions more children’s bikes are sent to landfill every year. Kids outgrow their bikes at an extremely fast rate meaning millions of bikes are contributing to our planet’s waste problem. Bikes aren’t the only culprits. Millions of scooters and ride-ons which children grow out of within a matter of months or years are affecting parent’s purses and the planet.
