SmarTrike®, the world’s best-selling and most awarded baby tricycle brand, is excited to announce the launch of the extremely versatile new smarTfold™ range, designed to grow with the child from 9 months – 3 years.
The new smart solution trikes, from the best-selling baby and toddler brand, is sure to be a big hit for mums/dads and bubs in Australia, as they are fully foldable (down to 85% less than the original size), portable thanks to its carry on mode, and compact enough to fit into small spaces. This makes it the perfect travel accessory, as it can be easily stowed into overhead airline bins, small trunks and closets.
The smarTfold™ comes in a various number of models: including the 400 and 500, which will be available in Australia from September onwards. Each trike from the smarTfold™ line includes fantastic practical features, such as an overhead canopy, storage bags, accessory tray, and seat padding.
The smarTfold™’s compactness coupled with its signature modalities make outdoor rides for mum and bub all the more enjoyable! The patented Touch Steering® technology allows the smarTfold™ to roll smoothly, just like a stroller! Its navigation system enables an easy transfer from parent control to child control, and its built-in shock absorbers provide a comfortable and safe outdoor journey. The smarTfold™ makes for an ideal investment item as it allows the trike to grow with the child from babyhood up to toddlerhood.
Stages of the smarTfold™:
Stage 1: Compactly folded, in its carry on mode, the smarTfold™ opens easily. No assembly required. It fits conveniently into any car and can even be taken onto an aeroplane as carry-on luggage.
Stage 2: At 9 months, baby sits using early stage footrest.
Stage 3: At 12 months, baby switches to fold-down footrest, sitting comfortably and securely on fully padded, high-back seat with soft-padded safety bar.
Stage 4: At 18 months, the canopy can be removed as baby grows. Baby enjoys the ride whilst developing confidence, balance & motor skills.
Stage 5: At 24 months, it turns into a child training trike – a navigation button is pushed and mudguard turned to the left. Child can now control the handle bar and direction of the trike, while parent still has full control of the front wheel when pushing forward. Foot rest is pushed in and pedals are attached at the first stage.
Stage 6: At 30 months, when the telescope parent handle is closed, the product transforms into an independent trike that kids pedal by themselves.
Stage 7: From 32 months, you can remove the high back support and the child can continue their fun-filled rides.
