The (very) Nordic Cab

Nordic Cab

Bike trailer, ski sled, push stroller, dog sled. Is there anything the Nordic Cab can’t transform into? This Norwegian design is among the most versatile we’ve seen so far. For starters, it is a spacious traditional two-child bicycle trailer with ample back, head and neck support for growing children. From trailer, Nordic Cab converts easily into a push stroller with adjustable handlebar. On the down side, the tiny front stroller wheels placed squarely in the middle of the front end make the carriage seem difficult to maneuver and potentially off-balance. Nordic Cab also sells a jogger attachment which would actually appear to be a more secure alternative to the flimsy front stroller wheels.

Dog Kit for Nordic Cab

In addition to the modes previously mentioned, the Nordic Cab also meets the needs of parents in Northern, snowy climates. The Ski kit accessory may be advantageous for the uber-athletic parents who enjoy trekking long distances through blustery winds with their children in tow… (to each his own). Even more unusual is Nordic Cab’s Dog kit adapter, which allows the Nordic Cab and Nordic Cab sled to be pulled by none other than man’s best friend. Perhaps we can chalk it up to mere cultural differences, but we find it hard to believe that many North Americans would trust their excitable canines with dragging their infants behind them in the local park, let alone in a blizzard.

In summary, while the Nordic Cab is truly innovative, with a lot of imagination and creativity, we find it to be somewhat lacking when it comes to practicality. With so many traditional bike trailers available, we do not feel the Nordic Cab, with all its accessories, will resonate with most average families. There are plenty of other bicycle trailer brands which will offer a similar design and value without all the bells and whistles.

The Zigo Leader Carrier Bicycle System  operates as a three-wheeled carrier bicycle optimized for transporting children.  It is uniquely designed with a forward-located ChildPod that allows parents to keep their children in site.  The Zigo Leader, using LeaderLink technology, converts into a stroller with caster wheels for walking, a jogging stroller, an ordinary bicycle with 20 inch wheels, or a conventional bicycle trailer for carrying children.  No tools are required for these conversions and they can be accomplished in under 30 seconds. The Zigo ChildPod weighs approximately 19 Kg (42 lbs) while the bicycle weighs 14 Kg (31 lbs).  It folds into a compact package that can fit in a car or closet.  It is also designed to fit through standard ADA doorways in the United States.  It comes in 3-gear and 7-gear versions.  At only $1399 in the U.S. it is very affordable compared to other carrier bicycle products.  Visit www.myzigo.com for more information.
