Raising a future mountain biker? If so, you need to check out the new shotgun kids MTB seat (riding shotgun – get it?) The shotgun seat is a front mounted child seat for kids 2 - 5 years, designed for the next generation of mountain bikers. The seat has been on sale in Australia and New Zealand for the past 12 months – although it’s only just become available to MTB parents in North America and Europe, just in time for summer. Not just another child seat. The shotgun seat is a bit different to the other front mounted child seats out there. First up, it has no harness, so rather than transporting your little person around like a piece of luggage, they’ll actually be engaged in riding with you – which is why they need to be at least 2 years old. Secondly, it’s quick release – so it’s easy to fit and remove with no clamps or adaptors left on your bike, and you can easily swap it between bikes too. Fostering a love of bikes with the shotgun seat The shotgun seat is fully adjustable to fit all MTB’s, and for those Moms and Dads riding a high-end carbon dream machine, the shotgun seat has moulded rubber frame protection, so it won’t scratch or damage your pride and joy. Shotgun seat fitted to Intense Primer If you’re looking for the full experience, there’s also a set of mini-handlebars for your little person to hold – which is ideal for making your little guy or gal part of the adventure. Otherwise they can hold onto the middle of your handlebars. Also available is a set of mini-handlebars. Let your kid ride shotgun The shotgun seat and handlebar accessory is now available in North America and Europe. MTB Moms and Dads can learn more or order online at Kids Ride Shotgun. The post Shotgun Kids MTB Seat appeared first on The Bike Dads.

Watch Remy on the Commencal Clash on some fun New Zealand trails. After CRANKWORX ROTORUA we went for a ride in NZ with Australian Remy Morton. We travelled with him to legendary spots in New Zealand, COMMENCAL offices in Christchurch and its beautiful Adventure Park, through the hills of Wanaka and Skyline Queenstown. Remy Morton at Rude Rock, Coronet Peak The endearing Australian rider rode the CLASH for the first time during this trip and after a week of riding some of New Zealand’s trails, here are his first impressions: “The CLASH is sick! There are not many enduro style bikes I can hop on out of a box and feel that comfortable on. To me it basically just felt like my FURIOUS except lighter, easier to move around and pedal.. Which I think for Christchurch Bike Park it made for the perfect bike. It really surprised me how stiff it was. I haven’t ridden an alloy trail bike in a few years now and it was so noticeable. In a good way. It just felt really solid and so predictable coming into corners and in the air. Really stoked on it! Can’t wait to have my own to ride all the time
