"The shotgun seat was great when my son was younger, but now that he’s pedalling his own bike, the hills can be pretty challenging for his little legs. The tow rope has been a game changer, now we can tackle bigger adventures together" – Dan

    FAQ:
    Q: What age is the tow rope suitable for?
    A: The shotgun tow rope is designed with kids in mind, but it’s suitable for adults too – as it’s rated to 500lb / 225kg.
    For kids, we’ve found that the tow rope works best once they’re confidently riding a pedal bike themselves, usually this is once they are riding a 16" or 20" wheel bike.

     

    Q: Is the tow rope safe for use on Ebikes?
    A: We’re aware of many customers using their tow ropes with Ebikes and we haven’t heard of any issue to date. To minimise load on the Ebike motor we recommend the person being towed is also pedalling.

     

    Q: Is the tow rope safe for use on dropper posts?
    A: The majority of our customers use their tow rope on dropper posts and we aren’t aware of any issues. To minimise wear and tear on your seat post you should remain seated when towing.

      Introducing the Shotgun Tow Rope

      WATCH TOW ROPE VIDEO

      Shock absorbing stretch

      Our tow rope’s gentle stretch is designed to give a smooth towing experience, without any sudden jolts.

      Multi-strand embedded elastic core

      Our tow rope features a unique embedded elastic core, making it stronger than other tow ropes.

      From balance bikes to big bikes

      With a load rating of 500lb / 225kg, our tow rope is suitable for small kids and big kids alike.

      Stem loop or carabiner? 

      The Shotgun tow rope includes attachments for two different mounting methods. 

      The stem loop method is quick and easy to attach. Simply loop over your kids stem and hook it under the stem bolts.  

      The carabiner method is extra secure and recommended for younger kids, or for longer, steeper tows. This method is suitable for any stem. 

      Hook up + hit the trails

      Using the Shotgun tow rope is easy. 

      Connect the tow rope to the trailing bike using the stem loop or carabiner attachment.

      Loop the other end over the saddle of the lead bike.

      Make sure the person being towed is ready, and set off gently. Easy!
