Shotgun Is The World’s Favourite Front-Mounted Kids Bike Seat

Hit The Bike Trails With The Whole Family

In the summer of 2016, Shotgun co-founder Dan Necklan faced a problem:

Mountain biking with the kids was splitting up the family.

The family loved mountain biking, but with kids 3, 7, and 9 years of age at the time, Dan’s wife Alicia would have to sit back with the youngest at the parking lot while Dan took the older boys out along the trails. There had to be a better way.

There were other options on the market. Carriers. Rear-mounted seats. You name it. But many of these options don’t work on full suspension bikes, while others leave kids staring at your back the entire time. Where was the fun in that? 

That’s when co-founder and product designer Tom Hayward stepped in. The brief? It was simple. Design a bike seat for kids whose parents have high end, full-suspension bikes and want to share a love of the outdoors while making beautiful memories with their family. 

Several prototypes, a bunch of feedback, and several months later, Shotgun’s Front Mounted Child Bike Seat hit the market, launching the brand in New Zealand before going global with stockists all over the world. 

A few years on, and Shotgun’s Kids MTB Seat has seen countless families able to share the fun, joy, and excitement of mountain biking with their kids. It’s the perfect way to get them out of the house, up and active, and hit the trails while creating memories that will last a lifetime. 

Shotgun’s proud to be helping raise the next generation of mountain bikers. To get involved or find out more information, visit the website or call +64 27 635 8500.
