The AddBike+ comes with a special brake system, which allows symmetrical braking on both wheels. The handle of this system is installed directly on your handlebars. There is no operation to perform on the brake system of your bike, only the front brake handle needs to be shifted slightly to make room for the brake handle of the AddBike+.
Despite its two wheels, the AddBike doesn’t bring more stability to the cyclist than a traditional bike. In fact, both wheels tilt to provide manoeuvrability while riding, it’s a tilting system. The AddBike therefore requires a small learning phase. In order to drive an AddBike, the same amount of balance as a normal bike is required.
We know that many people with a lack of balance or with disabilities would like to be able to ride a bike: we are currently thinking about another system for this purpose, we will keep you informed of further developments!
The AddBike, with or without a module, can carry up to 35 kg. The system has been laboratory tested to make sure that this transported weight does not damage your bike’s fork under all riding circumstances and regardless of the fork design.
Riding the AddBike will be more comfortable up to a weight of approx. 20 – 25 kg. It is also advisable to load the AddBike by putting the heaviest loads at the bottom, closest to the backrest of the AddBike.
The limit is more in relation to the size of the child. We have designed our hammock so that a child of about 85 cm can sit on it and be comfortable. It is essential that your child can sit on his own and hold their head up when sitting on the AddBike.
The maximum height of the child is about 1.2 m, so that he or she remains comfortable in the Carry’Box Kid’s interior.
For the moment, only a one-child version of the Carry’Box Kid is available. The AddBike team is currently developing a new version that will be suitable for two children, but still within the overall weight limit of 35 kg transported.
In the meantime, you can transport your two children by placing the bigger one in the AddBike and the smaller one on the back of your bike, in a traditional child seat.
